Mecko would love a home

Mecko

Young Mecko is a soppy boy with a quiet purr, and is happy to sit on your knee (or sometimes your shoulders) for a closer hug. Throw him a toy and he’ll happily chase and play, but not for long as he can’t wait for more of those enjoyable strokes he so loves.

Life has not been kind to Mecko.  Poor Mecko has a skin condition that was left untreated when he was abandoned in filthy conditions. Balding and itchy, Mecko was in a sorry state. Luckily Mecko has been recieving treatment for his dermatitis and it is starting to receed.  Although he does have a few bald patches, it doesn’t dampen his lively spirit.

Unfortuantely our vet thinks that this condition will reoccur throughout Mecko’s life. We have been unable to find the trigger for Mecko’s flare ups, but it is most likely the stress of having to live in a cat pen. In a new home we hope that Mecko’s skin condition will calm down massively, but we cannot guarantee this.

Mecko is looking for a special owner who is willing to take on this responsibility. Having Mecko around is sure to give his new owners a great deal of delight and be exceeedingly rewarding. For more information on Mecko’s condition or if you feel you could offer him the loving home he deserves, please email – rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk

Bashful Ben is looking for a home

DSC01464

Timid Ben is a quiet little kitten. Although happy to hare around his pen with his brother and sisters, Ben is very reserved around humans. Ben needs someone to come and visit him a few times to gain his trust before taking him home. If you think that you have the patience to win Ben’s heart, email rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk

Barry is longing for a home- RESERVED

Barry ball

Football mad and bouncy ball loving Barry is full-of-life and craves affection. He’s great with other dogs, walks well on a harness and responds well to gentle correction if pulls. Barry has shown signs of being worried when left on his own for too long, but this could also be due to boredom and stress of kennel life. Crate training may be of benefit for short periods of being left alone, although we hope this may not be necessary once in a stable home environment. Barry is a super little boy and is 3 years old. To meet Barry, please email – rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk

Tank would love a new home RESERVED

Lap dog Tank

Super-soppy Tank is adored by everyone at the centre, and staff can’t resist giving him plenty of hugs. This big guy has had quite a hard life so far, but it doesn’t seem to have dampened his spirits, or love of people. Throughout the day you will often find him having a good chomp on his kong toy, or playing with a squeaky one, keeping him amused for ages; no tennis balls though as he has a tendency to eat them! Early signs of hip dysplasia in Tank are present, but can be easily controlled by making sure he doesn’t become overweight, plus a possible susceptibility to ear infections that can be easily treated using ear drops. We hope 5 year old Tank will make his new owners as happy as he makes us. If you think you can offer Tank a home, please email – rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk

Trustees working hard!

On 17th August, the branch trustees stepped in to the shoes of the staff and ran the centre for the day! After undertaking training and with support from qualified volunteers they took the reins and worked very hard for the day! From mucking out, to dog walking and cat socialising, they really did the branch proud.

On behalf of all the staff we’re very grateful to our trustees for allowing us our first staff away day and would like to thank them for their support.

From the looks of these pictures they had great fun! They even raised money for the branch through sponsorship, so a brilliant day all in all!

Volunteer Collectors Needed

RSPCA Week

Could you offer an hour or so of your time to help with either of our collection days? All the dogs and cats in our care are brought to us by the RSPCA Inspector because their owners have cruelly treated or neglected them; all of them need some form of veterinary treatment or special care during their stay with us.  Fundraising is therefore vital to pay for the treatment and care of these special animals.  If you can spare just an hour then get in touch.

 If you can spare just an hour then please get in touch.  Contact: fundraising@rspca-whs.org.uk

Staff sky dive in aid of our branch!

Five staff members from RSPCA Warrington, Halton, St Helens are doing their part for the animal charity by doing a sky dive!!

John, Dani, Connor, Sophie and Kate are all employed by the branch and want to raise funds to help improve the branch and allow more support for the animals. Some of the funds will go towards staff development to keep our staff up to date with standards and procedures allowing for the best care possible for our animals. Other funds will go towards the general running of the centre, toys, beds, and walking and agility equipment for our animals.

Animals in our centre have usually been the victim of cruelty or neglect so please give generously.

Animals for Rehoming

We now only take animals brought into the centre by RSPCA Inspectors which have been taken from their owners because they have been cruelly treated. Occasionally some of these animals become available for rehoming. When this happens we will put up the animal’s details on our website and Facebook pages to try to find them a home as quickly as possible. We don’t generally open to the public anymore so if you want to look at any available animals you will need to make an appointment – you can contact us by email – rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk.
