RSPCA and Salvos work together for pets of the homeless community

On December 23, RSPCA WA and the Salvation Army will host a free Community Action Day in Northbridge for local residents and the homeless community who own pets.

"These free events are a great opportunity for members of the public to meet RSPCA WA Inspectors, rangers and vets," said Nat Foster, RSPCA WA Education Coordinator. "There will also be Christmas treats for all dogs!"

"At RSPCA WA we understand the friendship and value that a pet can bring into a person's life," said Ms Foster.

"We've worked with homeless people who live in tents and go without basic necessities so they can provide for their pet."

Through Community Action Days, RSPCA WA aims to share information and provide help to members of the public with common problems like fleas, worms, ticks, fly bitten ears, mange and understanding basic requirements for shelter and nutritional needs. People can also talk to inspectors about concerns of cruelty in their local area.

There will also be a limited amount of donated pet food that will be available for families in financial need along with flea and worming medication.

Also available on the day will be free veterinary advice and information to take away on pet ownership, along with other giveaways.

RSPCA WA is committed to helping animals through raising awareness with pet owners to understand and meet the best care possible for their companion pets.

RSPCA WA relies on donations and community support to generate more than 90% of the funds required to sustain its animal protection work, as only six percent is covered by a grant from the State Government.

  • Date: Wednesday 23 November 2015
  • Time: 1:00pm to 3:00pm
  • Address: Weld Square, Northbridge

    Hi Beth – You will need to call the Cruelty Hotline on 1300 278 358 for assistance. Or visit a local vet and talk to them about how they might be able to assist you.
