RSPCA offers free help with pet welfare costs

The RSPCA Wiltshire Mid Branch is running a two-day community event in Melksham on 23rd-24th March where help with a range of services will be freely available.

This includes free pet microchipping, free flea and worming treatments and subsidised neutering costs, along with free veterinary and specialist advice.

The two-day event will be held on Friday 23rd March and Saturday 24th March at the Forest Community Centre, Bowmans Court SN12 7FF. Doors open at 10.00am and the volunteer RSPCA team will be on hand until 3.00pm.

Bring your dogs, cats and small furries to meet with local vets, Bath Veterinary Group Chapel Surgery, who will be providing free vet checks on the day.

Cats Protection, the UK’s leading feline welfare charity, will be offering free vouchers for cat neutering. These can be used at your usual vets and, if your kitten is currently too young to be neutered, you can hold onto the voucher until the kitten is ready, which is usually around four months old.

Although the cold weather now may not be ideal for fleas, the cocoon surrounding the pupae can protect the developing flea for months, and in some cases, years. So why not take advantage of the free flea treatment (and worming treatment) on offer from the RSPCA

Microchipping your dog is now a legal requirement, so if you haven’t got around to it yet or have a young puppy ready for his or her chip, then come and meet the dog wardens from Wiltshire Council who will be happy to do it for free. If you think your dog may be microchipped but aren’t sure, then the dog can be scanned and the details checked for you.

Cats Action Trust, a local Melksham charity dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of abandoned cats and kittens, will be offering guidance on lost cats and advice on cat adoption.

Team members from Bath Cats and Dogs Home will be available to help with your pet behaviour questions, while your local RSPCA inspectors will be happy to share their stories and offer advice on a range of animal welfare topics.

Worried about wildlife in the cold weather? Then come and meet the team from the Wiltshire Wildlife Hospital. They can show you how best to respond to wildlife in distress – from birds frozen by the cold to underweight hedgehogs.

.Whatever the need – advice, treatment or just a chat with other pet owners – the RSPCA Wiltshire Mid team would love to meet Melksham pet owners at the Forest Community Centre on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th March from 10.00am each day.
