Freebies and food fit for the furries at Broome Community Action Day
RSPCA WA will partner with Saving Animals from Euthanasia (SAFE) and Broome Vet Hospital in Broome at next month’s Shinju Festival’s Pets in the Park, where the three animal organisations will take part in a Community Action Day.
Set to take place on Broome Civic Centre Lawn on Thursday 3 September between 3-5pm, the event will see free flea, worming and tick treatment as well as dog food available for families and people in need.
RSPCA Inspectors will also be on hand to offer companion animal welfare advice, as well as health care information, together with SAFE volunteers. Broome Vet Hospital staff will provide vet checks free of charge.
RSPCA WA CEO David van Ooran said the RSPCA team was very pleased to be visiting the region and that the education event was open to everyone.
“RSPCA WA, along with SAFE and Broome Vet Hospital, is encouraging members of the local community to stop by, meet our team and collect some health care products,” he said.
“RSPCA WA is committed to education in the community, particularly helping people to understand how to best care for their pets, and we firmly believe community education is the key to the prevention of animal cruelty and neglect.
“We’re also in regular contact with SAFE as we remain focused on getting a permanent presence for our work in Broome, and we’re currently working on funding options to help us achieve this.”
RSPCA Inspectors will be in Broome from 1 – 4 September, where they will appoint three new RSPCA Junior Ambassadors, carry out a range of inspectorate work, and meet with representatives from other animal welfare organisations including SAFE and AMRICC - Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities.
RSPCA WA needs to generate more than 90% per cent of its operating expenses, as only six per cent is covered by a grant from the State Government.
