High jinks and a bit of a fuss for Jinksy

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

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

PRO­TECT­ING your pets and keep­ing them safe by keep­ing up to date with their vac­ci­na­tions and mi­cro-chips is part of re­spon­si­ble an­i­mal own­er­ship. Mi­crochip­ping your pet gives them the best chance of be­ing iden­ti­fied and re­turned to you if they be­come lost or stolen.

While col­lars and tags can get caught or re­moved, mi­cro-chip­ping iden­ti­fies your pet per­ma­nently and ef­fec­tively.

Thou­sands of pets are lost ev­ery year and many are never reunited with their own­ers – mi­crochip­ping can change that. In the past, many an­i­mals be­came se­verely ill be­cause of dis­eases which – thanks to vac­ci­na­tion – are now rarely seen. If the num­ber of pets pro­tected by vac­cines drops, then pets could be at risk from an out­break of in­fec­tious dis­eases, some of which can be trans­mit­ted to hu­mans.

Why not join us for a quiz night? Fri­day, April 15, 7.30pm Uxbridge Cricket Club, Gat­ting Way, Park Road UB8 1NR – £5 en­try per per­son.

Our char­ity shops are our life­line to an­i­mal wel­fare, with­out the in­come from our shops we would not be able to help the 10,000 plus an­i­mals that come through the Hilling­don clinic each year.

Lo­cal an­i­mals rely on the suc­cess of these shops so any help any­one could of­fer would be ap­pre­ci­ated any­thing from 2.5 hour shifts. Also our hom­ing cen­tre is look­ing for vol­un­teers to help walk the dogs if you are in­ter­ested and could spare some time dur­ing the day please email ad­min@rspc­ahilling­don clinic.org.uk for a vol­un­teer ap­pli­ca­tion form.

Spe­cial ap­peal: Dur­ing this chang­ing weather, we des­per­ately need dry, clean tow­els to dry the an­i­mals in our care. If you could help, please bring any tow­els to our Hilling­don Clinic on Cres­cent Pa­rade, or to any of our char­ity shops. Thank you.

We have many older pets look­ing for homes. Could you of­fer one of our older pets a home where they can en­joy all the love and com­fort they de­serve in their golden years?

Jinksy, aged nine, may be one of our more ma­ture ladies, but she cer­tainly hasn’t lost her en­thu­si­asm for life, and still loves to play, es­pe­cially with her ball toys.

When fun-time is over, she likes to chill out, watch­ing the world go by from the com­fort of her bed. She ab­so­lutely loves to be groomed ... and in fact any sort of fuss and pam­per­ing, so would suit a home where she would have com­pany a lot of the time. Is there a place in your heart and home for our lovely lady Jinksy?
