Chihuahua puppies are lucky to be alive
FOUND sick and suffering and abandoned in a skip, these cross Chihuahua puppies are so lucky to be alive.
The only two who survived out of four that where found when a passerby found them, a long battle has taken place and nearly £3,000 in veterinary fees to get them nearly ready to be rehomed.
Our thanks must go to Arden House vets and our caring RSPCA staff who have tended to them with expertise and loving care. In about two weeks they will be ready for a forever home. We are also asking for donations towards their veterinary fees.
If you would be interested in adopting one of these lucky little puppies, please contact our homing centre for more information.
We are in desperate need of kitten pouches and newspaper if you are able to donate some.
You can drop any donation into our clinic in Crescent Parade, Hillingdon, or one of our charity shops which you can find more information about on our website www.rspcahillingdonclinic.org.uk.
Remember – acorns can pose a threat to dogs.
Acorns contain tannic acid, which is believed to be the toxic element of the nut, and can cause damage to the liver and kidneys. Ingested acorns can also cause intestinal blockages.
Signs include vomiting, diarrhea (with or without blood), abdominal pain, loss of appetite and lethargy. Please be aware of this when walking your dogs in the woods and help keep your pets safe.
Greta is a Syrian hamster looking for a loving home. Hamsters are often a child’s first pet because they are small animals with a great deal of character, but an adult should always be responsible for ensuring hamsters are properly handled and cared for.
Owning and caring for a hamster can be great fun and very rewarding.
There is no one ‘perfect’ way to care for all hamsters because every hamster has their own personality and preferences. It is up to you how you look after your hamster, but you must take reasonable steps to ensure that you look after all their needs, including a warm, safe indoor home.
If you can offer a loving home to this gorgeous girl please give us a call.
Milly and Molly came into our centre as their last owners could not cope looking after them anymore. Molly’s hair had got so bad, it had wrapped around her foot cutting off the blood supply. Luckily we were able to save her foot and she is doing well.
Being a longer-haired breed, they need a family that has the time to undertake some grooming to keep them in great condition and give them the love they deserves.
Guinea pigs are sociable and friendly animals, but like all pets require commitment to their specific accommodation, dietary and health needs. First time owners should do their research first, to understand what is involved.
Our animal welfare staff are also always happy to provide any advice needed. If you can offer a home to any of our lovely little furry friends, please contact us.
