Bad­dies, good­ies and lovely Woody

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

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

IT de­fies be­lief that any­one would ac­tu­ally take food out of the mouths of our res­cue an­i­mals, but that’s what hap­pened last week when some­one broke into our premises and stole, among other things, our en­tire stock of sta­ple cat and kit­ten food, to­gether with a lot of dog food, we have been com­pletely over­whelmed by the re­sponse to our ap­peal for pet food do­na­tions.

Dog and cat food, treats and con­tri­bu­tions for food pur­chases have been pour­ing in at our Clinic, shops and via on­line de­liv­er­ies. Our Trustees and staff have been deeply moved by the kind­ness and gen­eros­ity shown by so many peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions and would like to say a huge THANK YOU to ev­ery­one for the sup­port, which has gone be­yond our wildest ex­pec­ta­tions.

We are now forced to upgrade our se­cu­rity sys­tems, in­stall new alarms and is­sue our staff with per­sonal alarms etc.

All costs that re­duce our fi­nan­cial avail­abil­ity for an­i­mal wel­fare. On top of all this un­ex­pected spend, our main an­i­mal van has been writ­ten off in an ac­ci­dent and al­though in­sured it gives very lit­tle bud­get to re­place a ve­hi­cle that would have gone on a lot longer. Our Lu­ton van with tail lift, which cov­ers our two char­ity fur­ni­ture shops is now cost­ing more to re­pair than its worth so we have an ur­gent need to re­place th­ese two ve­hi­cles. Not a mi­nor spend. If any­one has con­tacts with a main dealer or has any sug­ges­tions to make to set up an ap­peal, get spon­sor­ship etc., Please can we hear from you! Our an­i­mal van was a Ford Tran­sit.

Our first lit­ter of kit­tens have been born, please let us ad­dress this yearly shame­ful epi­demic of tiny lives. Get your cat ster­ilised. If fi­nance is a prob­lem we can help.

One year old col­lie cross Woody, came into our care be­cause his owner couldn’t cope with the de­mands of a lively young dog.

He is a very gen­tle boy who loves his cud­dles, but he has lots of en­ergy and needs to be kept busy with plenty of ex­er­cise and stim­u­la­tion.

Typ­i­cally col­lie, he is very bright, loves to play ball and may well en­joy fun doggy ac­tiv­i­ties such as fly­ball / agility as part of on­go­ing train­ing.

Woody doesn’t like to be left alone, so we are look­ing for a home where he will have hu­man com­pany for most of the day. Some work may be needed on house train­ing.

Woody would be a lovely ad­di­tion to a fam­ily with older sen­si­ble chil­dren and pos­si­bly an­other laid back dog. Do you have the per­fect for­ever home to of­fer this very de­serv­ing young lad?

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

If you think you can of­fer one of our an­i­mals a lov­ing home then please ring RSPCA Hilling­don Branch on 01895 833417 or visit our web­site www. rspc­ahilling­don­clinic.org.uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.
