Your contributions help the RSPCA make a differance.
Ensuring that those who abuse animals are dealt with appropriately
- Members of the Public residing in the branch area and in receipt of certain means tested benefits are assisted to meet the cost of emergency veterinary care.
- The branch offers low cost neutering of animals belonging to people living in the branch area and in receipt of certain means tested benefits.
- The branch only accepts animals for re-homing from RSPCA Inspectors. The Branch does not accept unwanted or stray animals directly from members of the public.
- Animals which come into the branch for re-homing will be kept for a minimum of 4 months. If no potential adopter has come forward in that time the branch will then undertake a targeted marketing campaign to minimize the length of time an animal remains in kennels in order to keep down levels of stress this can cause to the animal.
Volunteers have now been trained, cats and dogs will be micro-chipped prior to leaving our care.
- All adopters of dogs will be given a voucher to offset the cost of neutering, all cats (if the right age) will be neutered prior to leaving the cattery. Dogs and cats will have been `1given their first vaccination and, depending on the length of time they have been with the branch, they will probably have received the second of the initial course of vaccinations. All animals will be wormed and de-fleaed on entry.
Please note: the rehoming line for dogs is currently unavailable.
- Potential adopters must meet the animal they intend prior to adoption. The branch will not rehome any animal unseen by the adopter. This is to ensure a suitable match is made and both parties "get on well together".
- All potential adopters will be contacted within 48 hours of choosing their animal to arrange a home visit prior to adoption to ensure that a successful match is made between the adopter and animal to be re-homed. A post adoption visit is then arranged to discuss any problems, etc
Please note that these policies are specific to this branch and in no way obviate the Policies of the National Society which this Branch fully endorses. For RSPCA Policies visit their website at www.rspca.org.uk
