Animal Care Assistant (Part time, Saturday)

Salary: National Minimum/Living wage (according to age)

We are a local branch of the RSPCA and provide boarding for case animals that have been removed from situations of cruelty, abuse and neglect by RSPCA Inspectors. We care for them whilst cases are going through court, providing rehabilitation to enable them to find loving new homes when the court proceedings have come to a successful conclusion.

You will have a strong commitment to animal welfare, a positive can-do attitude, and the resilience to cope with both the physical and emotional demands of the role.

You’ll be confident handling dogs and cats, with an animal care qualification and experience in an animal welfare environment. A full driving licence is essential.

MOVED TO RSPCA WIRRAL & CHESTER BRANCH-Bobby: Available for adoption

Bobby is a small bundle of joy; she needs a forever home where she is the only cat and someone who is willing to spend good quality time with her. Bobby can be wary of strangers and does not like sudden movements but this is due to an unfortunate start to her life. When you get a bond with Bobby she is quite happy to be stroked and will have a play. Bobby needs an experienced cat owner with no children.

If you can offer Bobby the loving home she deserves, please complete the application form Rehome forms_Application form CATS AND KITTENS  and email it to rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk

RESERVED-Heidi: Available for adoption

When Heidi first arrived at the centre she was extremely scared and withdrawn. She still can get worried by sudden movements and loud noises so a quiet house without children would be ideal. When Heidi knows and trusts you she is very affectionate and loves to play chase games with feathers, she also loves to jump and perform acrobatics when she plays. She has a sassy personality and in the right home will create joy and laughter. Heidi came to us after being abandoned at a school in a box. With 4 litter mates.  The kittens were all suffering badly from cat flu. They have recovered well, but because the flu virus stays in their system, they can shed the virus at times of stress. For this reason, we are rehoming them as indoor cats, to prevent the virus spreading in the environment. They will also need to go to a cat-free home. They will need plenty of stimulation and enrichment within the home, and their weight will need to be monitored carefully as they mature.  If you are out for most of the day, we’d recommend you consider taking two kittens so they have a playmate to keep them amused.

If you can offer Heidi the loving home she deserves, please complete the application form Rehome forms_Application form CATS AND KITTENS  and email it to rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk

MOVED TO RSPCA WIRRAL & CHESTER BRANCH-Dotti: Available for Adoption

Dotti is approximately 1 years old. She was rescued by an RSPCA Inspector along with Pickles (also available for adoption) when her owner moved abroad and left her alone to fend for herself.

When she arrived, Dotti was very scared and remained quite timid for several weeks. In the last few weeks she has really come out of her shell, and will now approach you for attention.We don’t know much about Dotti’s past, but from her initial behaviour in our cattery we think she would be better suited to a quieter home, without young children. Dotti is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

If you can offer Dotti the loving home she deserves, please complete the application form Rehome forms_Application form CATS AND KITTENS

and email it to rehoming@rspca-whs.org.uk
