RSPCA WA Offers Free Vet Checks for Pets in Need
On Wednesday 15 August, RSPCA WA will host a free Community Action Day at Anthony Waring Park in Clarkson for local residents who might be experiencing financial difficulty and are struggling to care for their pets.
Date: Wednesday 15 August
Time: 12.30pm – 3.00pm
Address: Anthony Waring Park, off Victorsen Parade, Clarkson
The event, sponsored by City of Wanneroo, offers members of the community the opportunity to talk to vets, vet nurses and students from South Metropolitan TAFE about any concerns they might have for their pets. They are welcome to bring their dogs along for free vet checks (dogs must be socialised, vaccinated and on a leash at all times).
Donated food and treatments for fleas, ticks and worms are also available free of charge, and the team are also offering free microchipping if needed (excluding litters).
RSPCA WA is committed to helping animals by raising awareness with pet owners to understand and meet their pet’s needs, and provide the best care possible for them.
RSPCA Community Action Days are also a good way for members of the community to learn more about animal welfare issues in their community.
“We’re delighted to bring our Community Action Day back to Clarkson this year. These free events are a vital service for people who may be struggling to look after their pets, and we want to let those people know that we’re here to help,” said Inspector Nat Foster, RSPCA WA Community Outreach Coordinator.
“At RSPCA WA we understand the friendship and value that a pet can bring into a person’s life and how important that bond is. We also want to know of any animal welfare or cruelty concerns in the local area.”
RSPCA WA relies on donations and community support to generate more than 90% of the funds required to sustain its animal protection work.
