RSPCA REACHES OUT TO ELLENBROOK COMMUNITY

RSPCA REACHES OUT TO ELLENBROOK COMMUNITY

On Wednesday 8 June, RSPCA WA will host a free Community Action Day at Charlottes Vineyard Pavilion in Ellenbrook for local residents who are interested in animal welfare.

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

Through Community Action Days, RSPCA WA aims to share information and provide help to the community with common pet issues like fleas, worms, ticks, fly bitten ears and mange, in addition to assisting pet owners understand basic animal need requirements.  

“We understand the friendship and value that a pet can bring into a person’s life and how important that bond is.” said Nat Foster, RSPCA WA Education Coordinator. 

“Regular vet checks and vaccinations, as well as consistent care, exercise and enrichment are all important in ensuring a healthy, meaningful and long lasting companionship.

 “We have organised Community Action Days in both regional and metropolitan areas and they have all proven popular, which is why we’re focused on rolling out more.”

On the day, community members can also talk to RSPCA Inspectors about any concerns relating to cruelty in their local area.

Donated pet food available for families in need, as well as free veterinary consultations and advice from South Metropolitan TAFE, will also be available at the community event, along with flea and worming treatments and other giveaways, including a sausage sizzle.

“We rely on the community’s support for our activities and programs, which are all firmly focused on working in the community to prevent animal cruelty wherever it happens.” adds Ms Foster.  

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 8 June 2016
  • Time: 2:00pm to 4:00pm
  • Address: Charlottes Vineyard Pavilion, Haberton Parkway in Ellenbrook

    Great idea….. but terrible timing when most people are working. To be truly effective and reach the community properly a weekend would have been better. Now we can’t attend.
