OVER the Christmas period this year there has been a high number of cats and kittens brought into the care of the branch.
There were 14 kittens, all from different places, that were dumped outside our charity shops and the Hillingdon clinic. Some were only eight weeks old – far too young to be left out in the cold.
We are pleased to say that these kittens are all doing well, but are now in need of warm, loving homes.
Most of the kittens are tabby in colour and we have both males and females.
n If you don’t fancy cats – how about fancy rats? Woody and Rodney are two adorable rats, brothers who came into our care as their owners were allergic to them.
They are both about eight months old and are happy to be handled, although they can be a little nervous at times.
They are now looking for a home with people who have had rats before and are prepared to give them what they need.
n THE RSPCA Hillingdon, Slough, Windsor, Kingston and district branch would like to thank everyone who made a donation for the animals in our care over Christmas.
So far we have raised more than £5,900 which will be of great help, but of course more will be needed.
We had an enormous quantity of food donations, bedding and treats to give them on Christmas Day, which they all enjoyed, but unfortunately for most of them the one thing they really wanted that they couldn’t have was a new home.
n If you feel you could offer a home to one of the animals either featured this week or in our care long term, please ring 01895 833 417.
If you are asked to leave a message, please give a postal or email address so that we can send you an adoption application form as soon as possible, or visit www.rspcahillingdonclinic.org.uk and click on the ‘dog in a kennel’ image for more information on adopting an animal.
If you’re not able to adopt but would like to help us look after these animals while they are with us, please give online at www.rspcahillingdonclinic.org.uk, by card over the phone at 01895 231 435 or at any of our charity shops.
Donations of bedding and animal food are always welcome at the clinic or shops.
