He’s Simba the best
Can you give an animal a loving home and a new start in life?
MICROCHIPPING your pet gives them the best chance of being identified and returned to you if they become lost or stolen – but it only works if you keep your contact details up to date. Collars and tags can get caught, or be removed, but microchipping identifies your pet permanently and effectively.
Earlier this year, it became a legal requirement for all dog owners to have their dogs microchipped. The law states that any dog over the age of eight weeks is now legally required to be microchipped and registered to an approved database.
So how can you check that your pet’s microchip details are up to date? If you’ve had your pet microchipped then you should have a confirmation letter or email including an ID or reference number as well as a microchip number.
Sadly, thousands of pets are lost every year, and many are never reunited with their owners, ending up in rescue organisations like ours, just because their owners have moved house or changed their phone number, and not updated their contact details.
Hillingdon Branch is offering free microchipping at an Animal Welfare and Rehoming Open Day on 3rd December 2016 10am-3pm at the RSPCA Clinic, 16 Crescent Parade, Hillingdon UB10 0LG (01895 231435). All are welcome. There will be the chance to ask questions, stock up on pet goods, find out whether we can help with the cost of having your pet neutered, and meet some of the animals who are looking for homes.
Looking for a home:
Poor Mina has been with us for a considerable time as a welfare boarder, but sadly her owner has never come back for her and now she needs the opportunity to start a new life.
This five-year-old is such an affectionate girl with so much love to give, we hope she gets that chance soon. Mina would prefer to be an only cat, but could probably live with a friendly dog and would be fine with children.
Can anyone offer this little sweetheart the loving home she deserves after feeling abandoned and unwanted for so long?
Simba is a lively young crossbreed looking for an active doggy home. He is great fun and absolutely adores playing with his toys particularly balls. Simba responds well to reward-based training and we think flyball or agility activities would be right up his street.
He can be a little boisterous and vocal with other dogs, but is OK otherwise. However, he needs a home without cats or other small furries.
Simba is crate trained but needs a little more work on his toilet training. This loveable little chap enjoys being brushed and getting a fuss, but is not a lap dog and prefers to be on the go. Could you offer Simba a fun lively home and a lifetime of love?
Visit www.rspcahillingdonclinic.org.uk to view all of our animals and download an Adoption Application form. We would be grateful for donations of old sheets and blankets to use for bedding for the animals. These can be brought into our Clinic at 16 Crescent Parade, Hillingdon UB10 0LG. We also urgently need of kitten food.
