Spice up your life with chin­chillas

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

CHIN­CHILLAS are de­light­ful, but mostly noc­tur­nal pets. Chilli (male) and Pep­per (fe­male) are our lovely pair of grey chin­chillas des­per­ately look­ing for a new home as they have been with us awhile.

They need to be rehomed to­gether.

As they need spe­cial­ist care, Chilli and Pep­per re­quire an owner with some 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 that they need, this lovely pair will make lovely pets.

Could you of­fer Chilli and Pep­per the happy-ever-af­ter they so des­per­ately need?

Ben and Scar­lett are typ­i­cally ex­citable and play­ful Jack Rus­sells whose own­ers were no longer able to keep them due to a change in fam­ily cir­cum­stances.

They are full of en­ergy and their lit­tle tails are on the go non-stop, al­ways ea­ger for at­ten­tion.

This pair are very af­fec­tion­ate, but don’t seem to have had much in the way of train­ing and would ben­e­fit from go­ing to classes.

Ben and Scar­lett need a lively ac­tive home, ide­ally with ex­pe­ri­ence of the breed and no chil­dren un­der the age of eight.

They are both quite in­de­pen­dent char­ac­ters, so we may con­sider hom­ing them sep­a­rately.

Ben and Scar­lett are long­ing for a new start in life and a life­time of love and car­ing.

Can you of­fer them the fu­ture they de­serve?

The cat pop­u­la­tion in the UK has reached cri­sis point.

De­spite sub­sidised neu­ter­ing schemes from res­cue or­gan­i­sa­tions, more and more cats are com­ing into our care and fewer homes are tak­ing in cats

When you own an un-neutered fe­male, things can get out of con­trol pretty quickly and you can eas­ily find your­self over­whelmed with 20-plus cats and kit­tens and the prob­lem be­comes too big for you to re­solve.

Don’t let this hap­pen to you or your cats.

Had most of our cats been neutered and mi­crochipped, they would prob­a­bly be curled up at home right now en­joy­ing them­selves.

We cur­rently have 33 adults and 46 kit­tens look­ing for homes!

With this amount of kit­tens and more com­ing in daily, we are in need of kit­ten food and lit­ter.

On av­er­age we are us­ing 10 boxes a day of food. If you could spare any food it would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.

Don’t put your cat at risk – fi­nan­cial help and ad­vice is avail­able from many or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing our­selves.

Please call us on 01895 833 417 or our clinic on 01895 270 926 for more in­for­ma­tion.

We have an Ama­zon Wish List for any­one wish­ing to send items from out­side the lo­cal area.

If you can of­fer one of our an­i­mals a lov­ing home, then please ring the RSPCA Hilling­don branch on 01895 833 417 or visit our web­site www. rspc­ahilling­don­clinic.org. uk.
