Pep­per, Ginger, Chilli?

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

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS - RSPCA Hilling­don

WE are your lo­cal branch of the RSPCA and we are des­per­ately in need of funds to en­able us to con­tinue help­ing the sick and ne­glected an­i­mals in our care. RSPCA Week runs from June 5 to 12, there are plenty of ways to get in­volved:

Do­nate your un­wanted, good qual­ity items to one of our three char­ity shops

Or­ga­nize your own fundrais­ing event and raise money to help an­i­mals in need

Vol­un­teer to help out in one of our shops or at a fundrais­ing event such as an in-store col­lec­tion.

We are in need of kit­ten food pouches and dry food ide­ally Felix / Whiskas but any do­na­tions are greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. We are also in need of cat lit­ter for the grow­ing num­ber of cats and kit­tens that are en­ter­ing the cen­tre look­ing for for­ever homes.

Never leave your dog alone in a car on a warm day. Many peo­ple still be­lieve that it’s OK to leave a dog in a car on a warm day if the win­dows are left open or they’re parked in the shade, but the truth is, it’s still a very dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tion for the dog.

A car can be­come as hot as an oven very quickly, even when it doesn’t feel that warm. When it’s 22 de­grees, in a car it can reach an un­bear­able 47 de­grees within the hour. What to do if you see a dog in a car on a warm day. In an emer­gency, we may not be able to at­tend quickly enough, and with no pow­ers of en­try, we’d need po­lice as­sis­tance at such an in­ci­dent. Don’t be afraid to dial 999, the po­lice will in­form us if an­i­mal wel­fare as­sis­tance is re­quired.

Chilli (male) and Pep­per (fe­male) are our lovely pair of grey chin­chillas look­ing for a new home. They need to be re­homed to­gether, and not mixed with any other chin­chillas.

As they do need spe­cial­ist care, Chilli and Pep­per re­quire an owner with pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence and a home where they will have plenty of space to ex­er­cise. Chilli and Pep­per are both friendly and are able to be han­dled ... some­times they even eat from your hand! With the love and proper care they need, this lovely pair would make lovely pets. Could you of­fer Chilli and Pep­per the happy-ever-af­ter they so des­per­ately need?

Dash and Ginger have not had the best start in life. When they ar­rived with us, this gor­geous pair were very shy and scared but have grown in con­fi­dence and are be­com­ing more so­cia­ble ev­ery day.

They do rely on each other for com­pany and sup­port so must find a home to­gether, with­out chil­dren, other cats or dogs. Dash and Ginger are very af­fec­tion­ate and purr lots once you get to know them, es­pe­cially when hav­ing a scratch on the chin.

This pair do need a home with some­one who is will­ing to put in the time to bring out the great and lov­ing char­ac­ters we know they are. Can you of­fer Dash and Ginger the happy end­ing they both de­serve?
