Pepper, Ginger, Chilli?
Can you give an animal a loving home and a new start in life?
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?
