BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT
As well as dogs and cats we also offer a safe haven for many other animals. We always have rabbits looking for homes, often guinea pigs and others such as ponies, ferrets, rodents and parakeets. As well as domestic animals we also take in injured and orphaned birds and small wildlife. Wherever possible we care for them until they can be released but if they need more specialised care we pass them on to a dedicated wildlife rescue.
Here at the Sanctuary we get calls every day from people who have lost or found animals. It is amazing how many of those animals are still NOT micro-chipped or the information on the chip is out of date.
Collars can get lost, tags fall off or even get removed.
All rescue centres, veterinary surgeries, RSPCA officers and dog wardens have mobile scanners. As soon as a stray animal is found it takes only minutes to check for a chip, call the microchip companies and be given the owners details. What lets this system down is when we find that the animal is either not chipped, is chipped but the chip has never been registered or that the details of the owner are out of date. Then everything grinds to a halt.
Next year, in 2016, it will become the LAW to have your dog micro-chipped. Are you ready? Is your dog chipped? Are the details that you gave to the chip company still correct? You have not moved? Changed your telephone number? If you got the dog from an advert, breeder or rescue centre is the dog definitely now in YOUR details? Do not leave it until next year check now.
It is still not law to have your cat or other pet chipped but it makes sense.
Micro-chipping is easy to do. your pet will not need to be sedated it is as simple as an injection.
Micro-chipping is not expensive check with your vet as many have special offer on in the run up to 2016.
Have a look on line as a lot of animal welfare groups are offering FREE micro-chipping at the moment.
We have been nominated for a prize from Animal Friends Pet Insurance but we need YOUR votes to win. If we win we will receive £8000! Please follow this LINK to find out how you can vote for us. Thank you.
DOG TOY APPEAL
We are asking for donations of dog toys please. Our rescue dogs have been rather over zealous and enthusiastic with their toys and the ones that remain in use are looking rather the worse for ware! In particular we are looking for the hard wearing toys that our dogs can have fun with both in the kennel and outside. If you can help please drop any donated toys into here at the Sanctuary or call us on 01564 823288. Thank you.
