Gypsy in need of an ex­pe­ri­enced owner

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THE RSPCA Hilling­don, Slough, Wind­sor, Kingston, Dis­trict is launch­ing its Christ­mas ap­peal for des­per­ately needed funds and we are look­ing for vol­un­teers to de­liver leaflets and ideas to swell the funds.

We had a good week­end at our hom­ing cen­tre. Seven cats went to lov­ing homes find­ing their hap­pily ever af­ter. If you can find a space in your heart and home we have many cats look­ing for lov­ing homes at this cold time of year when all they want is a warm lap to curl up on.

Gen­tle re­minder to check your hutches as win­ter is here – help pro­tect your out­side pets from the cold weather.

Poor Gypsy’s world has been turned up­side down, af­ter los­ing her home and ev­ery­one she loves.

She is such a sweet girl who craves at­ten­tion and loves cud­dles – a real lit­tle lap dog. How­ever, the five-year-old is a wor­rier and can get anx­ious and very vo­cal, par­tic­u­larly when left on her own. She will there­fore need an ex­pe­ri­enced home with some­one who is pre­pared to put in lots of time and ef­fort to help her over­come her is­sues, in­clud­ing some work on house train­ing.

Gypsy needs to be with some­one who is at home most of the time and hav­ing lived with a dog be­fore, she would prob­a­bly enjoy the com­pany of an­other calm and con­fi­dent dog to show her the ropes. We will only con­sider homes for Gypsy in or very close to our branch area.

Do you have the ex­pe­ri­ence, love, and pa­tience to help re-build Gypsy’s world?

At the cen­tre we have many guinea pigs that are now look­ing for a brand new start in life with a lov­ing fam­ily.

Th­ese lovely guinea pigs need a se­cure and spa­cious ac­com­mo­da­tion pro­vid­ing both shel­ter and plenty of room to ex­er­cise they will need to be in­doors to start with.

Please get in touch if you can of­fer any of th­ese guinea pigs a per­fect home and a life­long com­mit­ment to their care – in re­turn they will of­fer lots of love and fun.

Can you of­fer a for­ever home to our guinea pigs or rab­bits?

If you think you can of­fer one of our an­i­mals a lov­ing home then please call RSPCA Hilling­don Branch on 01895 833 417 or visit our web­site www. rspcahillingdonclinic.org. uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.

We are still in des­per­ate need of var­i­ous sized cat scratch­ing posts, news­pa­pers and wood based cat litter. Any do­na­tions can make such a dif­fer­ence to the cats that come into our cen­tre.

Fire­works are go­ing off all around us and for an­i­mals it can be a very scary, some­times dan­ger­ous time. We would strongly ad­vise you to have your pets in­doors be­fore it gets dark. Close your win­dows and cur­tains, try and dis­guise the loud bangs by play­ing mu­sic and hav­ing the TV on, as well as giv­ing your pets all the com­fort they need. If you know this is not go­ing to work and your pet be­comes ex­tremely anx­ious, please speak to your vet now, who will be able to ad­vise you on med­i­ca­tions that can help.

Have you ever con­sid­ered vol­un­teer­ing? We ur­gently need vol­un­teers to sup­port us in our busy Hilling­don Shop. Con­tact us on fundraiser@rspca hilling­don­clinic.org.uk.

Or maybe you fancy some­thing a lit­tle more chal­leng­ing, like walk­ing on hot coals, run­ning a marathon, mud as­sault course or bike ride.

What­ever it may be we will help you to achieve your goal to sup­port us.

You may run or work for a busi­ness that would be keen to sup­port a char­ity in the lo­cal com­mu­nity. Please con­sider us your lo­cal branch. We have a full diary of events for next year which will need to be spon­sored.

Please help us to con­tinue to pro­vide the much needed an­i­mal wel­fare in the area.

Christ­mas is fast ap­proach­ing and we have de­cided to open the Hilling­don shop on Novem­ber 22 and 29 and De­cem­ber 6, 13 and 20, as well as open­ing un­til 9pm on Tues­day, Novem­ber 24 and Tues­day, De­cem­ber 15.

Please pop along we have some great gift ideas.

Thank you for your sup­port …. We can’t do it with­out you!
