Support our lifeline to animal welfare
OUR charity shops are our lifeline to animal welfare. Without the income from our shops we would not be able to help the 10,000plus 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@ rspcahillingdonclinic.org. uk for a volunteer application form.
It is now a legal requirement to have any dog over the age of eight weeks microchipped in England and Wales. As part of the new law. It will also be a requirement for keepers and breeders to keep their registered details up-to-date. This includes if you move house or change your telephone number.
If your dog is not microchipped and/or registered on an approved database then you could be served with a notice ordering you to microchip your dog.
You will have 21 days to do so or you may be liable to pay a £500 fine and could face criminal prosecution.
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, in Crescent Parade, or to any of our charity shops. Many thanks. We are also in need of dog toys.
Shiloh is a lovely young Jack Russell terrier signed over to us by his previous owner. He’s a friendly boy who loves a fuss so does tend to jump up a lot to get attention. On the lead, Shiloh is rather nervous and there tends to be a lot of stopping and starting. though this is likely to improve with time and the right training.
Due to his bad experiences at the hands of children in the past, Shiloh will need a new home without youngsters and also preferably
DOTTY is bubbly and charming. What else would you expect from a dog who plays ball dressed in a smart lavender jacket.
She is fun to be around – not least because she likes muddy puddles. But beware, she does not like playing with dirty toys so her carers at Battersea have to make sure she has her own supply of clean toys. She likes footballs and hard rubber toys, but forget them at bedtime as at night she likes a soft bed in her kennel. Dotty loves to snuggle up and have a cuddle. She adores human interaction and attention.
She builds strong bonds and enjoys being with her people. But she has a sensitive side and can be shy at times.
If you would like to meet this lovely English bull terrier, she is being cared for at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Priest Hill, Old Windsor SL4 2JN.
Battersea Dogs Home has three sites – Battersea in London, Brands Hatch in Kent and Old Windsor in Berkshire.
It is because of the strong association between Berkshire and Battersea Dogs Home that they have been selected to be one of the charities benefitting from without other pets. Shiloh hasn’t got off to the best start in life, but is still very young and with lots of love, attention and training will gain in confidence and settle to be a great companion. Is there a Shiloh-shaped space in your life for our little man?
Tigger is a very affectionate nine-year-old cat who came to us due to the opening of Frogmore House and Gardens to the public this summer.
Frogmore is set in the grounds of Windsor Castle’s Home Park and has limited days when it is open to the public but, for one day only, on Thursday June 9, you can visit Frogmore and the money raised will go to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

He is such a handsome boy who loves attention, as witnessed by his loud purring! Tigger is a little larger than your average cat, but it seems this means that he also has so much more love to give.
Tigger would prefer a home without other animals but could live with older children. This
