We're helping rescued pets!

There are many pets in rescue centres in this area. Could you spare some food/ a toy or some blankets to cheer up their days? Just drop them off to use (there's a collection box in reception and we'll make sure they are sent where they are needed). This year we are collecting for Appledown Rescue Kennels and our local branch of Cats Protection.

Cats Protection Rehoming Day - a great success!

Could you give a puss cat a furrever home? Our re-homing afternoon on Saturday 21st March was extremely successful with 9 puss cats found furever homes.

Every year CP re-home thousands of cats across the UK, fostering stray or unwanted pets until a new h

ome can be found for the. They rely on help and funding from the general public.

Antifreeze Poisoning 

Sadly we see poisoning with antifreeze every year. Even a very small amount of antifreeze can cause kidney failure and death. 

To help prevent this:

  • Please clean up any spillages immediately  - no matter how small.
  • Keep all containers tightly sealed and away from pets, clearly labelled.
  • Check your car is not leaking coolant onto your driveway.
  • Always dispose of antifreeze safely and responsibly.
  • If you suspect your pet has been in contact with antifreeze contact us immediately. The signs of poisoning (vomiting, depression, seizures) do not show until 2 days or so after exposure - by which time it is often too late to save a pet.

Rock Salt Poisoning

Salt used on roads in cold weather can cause illness if pets lick the salt from their paws. Clean your pets paws with water or a mild shampoo after walking in rock salt. If you are concerned that your pet has eaten some rock salt please contact us immediately
