From the dig­i­tal to the adorable

Can you give an an­i­mal a lov­ing home and a new start in life?

Harefield Gazette - - RSPCA NEWS -

SINCE the start of the Se­cond World War the Hilling­don RSPCA Clinic has of­fered help to lo­cal an­i­mals in need. Last year saw over 10.000 an­i­mals through our doors, many in need of new homes or aban­doned.

We have given some pets vi­tal and pain re­liev­ing treat­ment as their own­ers have been un­able to af­ford pri­vate ve­teri­nary fees.

Our clinic is heav­ily over­sub­scribed and with­out the in­come from our vi­tal char­ity shops and gal­lant fund rais­ing ef­forts of our vol­un­teers this im­por­tant lo­cal re­source could not keep go­ing.

Please sup­port us by us­ing our shops and get in touch if you have a lit­tle time to give as a vol­un­teer.

Dig­i­tal days Last week was a land­mark in our his­tory as we have gone com­put­erised!

Com­put­er­i­sa­tion is a re­quire­ment of our clinic li­cence and sev­eral thou­sand pounds of spend later we went ‘live’ on Mon­day.

Thanks are due to our gal­lant staff and vol­un­teers who worked as a well oiled team to en­ter all data and get ready for the big day.

Ev­ery­thing has gone like clock­work so far, but we would ask our clients to bear with us if there is a lit­tle de­lay.

Rab­bits for adop­tion Mopsy and Peter are male and fe­male white/grey lion­head rab­bits, aged 12 weeks.

This adorable pair would like to find the per­fect for­ever home to­gether.

Be­ing a longer-haired breed, po­ten­tial adopters must be pre­pared to un­der­take some groom­ing to keep them in great con­di­tion.

All rab­bits re­quire a spa­cious hutch and a gen­er­ous sized run with plenty of room to play, stretch and ex­er­cise as well as a healthy and nu­tri­tious diet to help them thrive.

Not for­get­ting of course, the all-im­por­tant love and at­ten­tion of their hu­man fam­ily.

If you are in­ter­ested in adopt­ing Mopsy and Peter, or any of the other lovely rab­bits cur­rently in our care, please do con­tact us on 01895 833417 or visit www. rspc­ahilling­don­clinic.org.uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.

Keep­ing pets warm Fi­nally a gen­tle re­minder to make sure out­side pets are in weather proof hous­ing at this time of year.

Dogs should be kept in­side, but if this re­ally is not pos­si­ble, the best out­door ac­com­mo­da­tion should be pro­vided, with plenty of warm dry bed­ding.
