There has been a flurry of activity at the Blount County Animal Center in recent weeks since animal control brought in 61 cats, many of them in poor condition, from a self-proclaimed rescue organization.

Two of the sickest cats died instantly and three others had to be euthanized as they were deemed too far away to be saved. One had a broken pelvis and couldn’t walk, said BCAC cattery manager Wendy Lemons.

A cat with no teeth was in the group along with many others who were dehydrated.

The cats were taken away by Kitty Kamp Animal Control, which operated out of the Alnwick Community Centre. The cats were all found in one room. Complaints came in about the smell. No charges against the owner have been filed.

They are now being cared for at BCAC, located at 233 Currie Ave., Maryville.

There are 16 with ringworm, which is highly contagious to animals and also to humans, Lemons said. Seven others have upper respiratory conditions that require antibiotics.

“It takes four to five weeks for ringworm to heal,” Lemons explained. “It’s an exhausting experience because everyone has to be immersed in sulphur/lime twice a week. Because it’s so contagious, you need to prepare like you’re ready to enter hazardous materials.

In addition to twice-weekly baths, kitty litter should be completely changed daily, Lemons said. “We go through tons of kitty litter.”

But, things are looking up for these rescued animals. The Wisconsin Humane Society heard about the dire situation and adopted nine cats. Others were adopted locally, Lemons said. In all, there are still 30 cats to be cared for who will need a new home.

Add that to the cat population already there and the head count is 63.

The rescued cats have been at the shelter for about three weeks. The Lemons said at one point they ran out of cardboard boxes used for litter boxes and had to resort to laundering and cleaning other reusable ones every day.

A separate area of ​​the center has been opened so that new temporary residents can be away from others.

“These cats are 100% better,” Lemons said. The shelter has its own veterinarian, Dr. Michelle Williams. She worked tirelessly to provide excellent care, Lemons said.

The needs are great since the BCAC is not equipped to handle such an influx of animals all at once. Of course, they need kitty litter, cat food, cleaning supplies, etc. The center’s fundraising arm, the Smoky Mountain Animal Care Foundation, spread the word on social media. There are wishlists on Amazon and Chewy.

Volunteers are always needed, Lemons pointed out. “We never have enough”

Wisbech animal lover praises RSPCA apprenticeship for launching his career https://klavlav.org/wisbech-animal-lover-praises-rspca-apprenticeship-for-launching-his-career/ Wed, 09 Feb 2022 10:49:00 +0000 https://klavlav.org/wisbech-animal-lover-praises-rspca-apprenticeship-for-launching-his-career/ An animal lover has praised the RSPCA apprenticeship scheme which launched his career and gave him his beloved dog Sonny whose mother was rescued from a puppy farm.

An animal lover has praised the RSPCA apprenticeship scheme which launched his career and gave him his beloved dog Sonny whose mother was rescued from a puppy farm.

Sam Kiddle volunteered at the RSPCA Block Fen Animal Center in Wimblington for two years before starting a Level 2 animal care apprenticeship under the charity’s apprenticeship scheme.

Sam, from Wisbech, wasn’t sure what he wanted to do after leaving school and so the 21-year-old, who has always been an animal lover, decided to start volunteering at the center to see if he would enjoy the role. . It didn’t take long before he realized that was what he wanted to do.

Sam Kiddle from Wisbech not only found his career but also his mate Sonny through the RSPCA. (54786055)

He started his apprenticeship in October 2019 in order to obtain the necessary diploma to become an animal assistant.

Sam said: “I liked that you could take your classes at the center rather than having to go to a separate college. I’m not a fan of classes and being in front of a computer all day, but it was good because it was much more hands-on and it was based on real-life experiences rather than made-up scenarios, which which made things much easier.

“I would recommend the apprenticeship for people who don’t want to go to college, for people who may not like school but want a career in animal welfare.”

Sam Kiddle from Wisbech not only found his career but also his mate Sonny through the RSPCA.  (54786052)
Sam Kiddle from Wisbech not only found his career but also his mate Sonny through the RSPCA. (54786052)

Sam completed the apprenticeship in April last year and since then has been working as an animal care assistant on a fixed term contract.

He added: “My favorite part of the job is when animals are rehomed. You see those animals arrive that are neglected or need medical help, but then you can watch them transform and find new homes. Just seeing their journey from arrival to relocation is truly rewarding.

On a typical day, Sam’s job is to clean the kennels, cattery and small animal units, make sure the animals have fun activities to keep them entertained, walk the dogs, provide them with any medications they need and to put pet details on the RSPCA website and liaise with potential adopters.

As well as providing him with the qualification he needs to advance in his career, his apprenticeship also allowed him to discover the spaniel puppy Sonny. Sonny was born in RSPCA care after his mother was rescued from a puppy farm. Sam spent a lot of time with Sonny looking after him in the kennels and the two became very close. Shortly after learning, Sam adopted Sonny and he is now part of the family.

In the future, Sam hopes to continue working at the RSPCA Block Fen Animal Center and further his career in animal welfare.

This National Learning Week, the RSPCA celebrates the many benefits that learning brings to the charity and to individuals.

NatWest Group has helped expand the RSPCA apprenticeship scheme with its £500,000 levy transfer. This means the charity has been able to provide even more opportunities for people like Sam to advance their careers and play their part in helping the 100,000 animals the RSPCA rescues each year.

Hillary and Ashley

By Paul Gibson

This week here at the Animal Center in New Cut Lane, Southport, we have a selection of cats all looking for their new forever home.

We have a pair of long life cats, Hilary and Ashley; two beautiful 10-month-old sisters who had been looking for their ideal home for more than two months, but unfortunately had no luck.

They need an experienced adult-only home with owners who will be able to provide plenty of safe spaces for them and understand their fearful behaviors, letting them adapt at their own pace.

Due to the lack of socialization as kittens, this left them very uncertain and scared. Ashley is the more confident of the two (little black mark on her nose), but we’ve found that over time they are both happy to leave their pods behind and enjoy playing with different cat toys and scratchers. It’s the only time we see them relaxing and having fun.

Both girls love their food! They are well known in the cattery for their “singing voice” at dinnertime.

We are looking for a quiet, understanding, adults-only, dog-free home for Hilary and Ashley, but they are suitable to live with another friendly cat.

Our new boy on the block is Ned (or Neddy) Cat, he’s a charming seven year old looking for his second chance at happiness. Neddy is slowly coming out of his shell, but we find that he spends most of his day in bed. Loud sounds or rapid movements startled Ned, so we think a calm, quiet home will suit him best.

ned

Now Ned is getting to know the staff and volunteers, we have found that he is starting to trust them and allow them to pet him and he will happily come back with a whim. When he’s really happy, he’ll roll over on his back to tickle his tummy. Ned also enjoys playing with toys, his favorite being a simple shoelace to chase.

Ned is looking for a mature home (all kids must be 16+), but he could live with another friendly cat (not a dog). Ned will make a lovely addition to your family unit once settled in and will be a very affectionate companion.

Finally, we also have Austin, our one-eyed boy. At two years old, he is now looking for a new home after being placed in our care. He took a bit of time to settle in, which is understandable after undergoing his recent eye surgery.

He healed beautifully and is now getting used to this new way of seeing the world.

Austin

Austin can be shy at first, but if you give him a moment, he’ll soon realize you’re there for a cuddle and cuddle, which he’s a big fan of!

Likewise, we think Austin would benefit from a quiet adult home with no other pets. He needs a loving and understanding owner who will let him out of his shell when he’s ready.

Austin is often found sitting outside enjoying the possible sunshine, after an initial period of settling in we think he will enjoy sitting in the garden during the summer months.

If you are applying for Hilary and Ashley, Ned or Austin, please complete a perfect match form, the quickest way to get it back to us is by email info@rspcasouthport.co.uk

Once we receive your application, we will check whether you might be a suitable match and contact you to discuss your application and the animal in more detail.

If you have any questions about our current animals or the adoption process please call us on 01704 567 624, we are always happy to help.

The RSPCA is looking for kind-hearted Mancunians to help care for their cats and rabbits in Greater Manchester.

If you dream of cuddling and caring for vulnerable animals while they wait for their forever homes, this could be the opportunity for you as several volunteer roles have become available at the Manchester and Salford branches of the RSPCA.

In 2021, teams had a total of 624 animals admitted into their care and saw 503 of those animals rehomed – 259 cats, 117 rabbits and 127 “puppies”.

However, the Eccles Road-based RSPCA center is required to raise all of its own funds to operate, so it is heavily dependent on the help of volunteers to keep things running smoothly.

RSPCA Manchester and Salford Branch / Facebook

Volunteers are tasked with tasks such as cleaning the enclosures and spending quality time with the rescued animals to socialize them before they are adopted.

And now the branch has posted an advertisement for these positions, which reads: “Join our wonderful team of volunteers at our small animal center in Salford.

“We are looking for people who can commit to a weekly slot (a few roles are available fortnightly) for at least the next three months, and that’s because a lot of time is needed to train volunteers and the temporary placements are therefore not manageable for us.”

For insurance reasons, the RSPCA Manchester & Salford advises that it is looking for volunteers over the age of eighteen and specifies that any applicant who has cats, dogs, rabbits or ferrets in their home must be at day of his vaccinations.

RSPCA Manchester and Salford Branch / Facebook

The proposed roles are:

  • Cleaning of the cattery: start from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, weekly or fortnightly.
  • Small Animal Room Cleaning: Begin between 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
  • Cat Socialising: Anytime 1-4pm Monday-Friday.
  • Rabbit Socialization: Anytime, 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., seven days a week.

If you think you’re ready to join the RSPCA Manchester & Salford volunteer team and have lots of hugs to give, you can email adoptions@rspca-manchesterandsalford.org.uk for more details. information.

Ashley, Hilary and Luna are just a few of the animals looking for their forever homes

By Paul Gibson

The end of the year is in sight and we can’t believe we’re already well into 12 days of Christmas! We are very grateful to everyone who supported us throughout the year; for all donations for our animals and those who chose to adopt and gave a second chance at happiness to so many cats and dogs.

Fortunately, we were able to organize our Christmas and summer fairs this year, as well as two big raffles to raise essential funds for the Animal Center. We have continued to fight all Covid-19 restrictions and pursue adoptions for cats and dogs, while ensuring that all of our staff and volunteers are safe and able to continue their hard work in caring for animals.

We are ending the year with 11 cats and five dogs currently looking for their new homes, and we will have more available in the coming days.

Jack

First up, we have Jack, a nine year old Border Collie. He is a happy, lucky boy who needs an experienced adult-only home with no other pets. We have found that Jack enjoys going out for his daily walks and cuddling, he enjoys being around people and looking for a home to grow old in.

Moon

We also have Luna, a two year old German Shepherd. She is a lively girl who needs an active home, with experienced shepherd owners. She needs time, patience and training in her new home. Luna requires an adult-only pet-free home. Luna has been looking for her home for a little while now, we hope 2022 will be her lucky year!

On the cats we have a lovely pair called Ashley and Hilary who are shy 10 month old sisters looking for a calm patient owner and a home to call their own. They love food, so it is definitely a way to get into their hearts.

Ashley and Hilary

Ashley and Hilary are with a few months now but are still two very scared shy girls who unfortunately don’t like to be manipulated. They need homeowners who will be able to provide them with a safe space and have a hands-off approach that gives them time to adjust. These girls need a lot of TLC

We also have Arlo; he is a confident happy boy who loves everyone he meets. We have found Arlo to be a huge hit in the cattery enjoying hugs from all the staff and volunteers. As soon as we pop our heads to say hello, he purrs and eagerly comes over to you, ready for a bang.

Arlo

We are looking for a house with owners who will be a lot for Arlo as he is a social boy who thirsts for company. Arlo could be housed with a cat friendly dog ​​and children six and up. Arlo has suffered from feline flu in the past, and anyone wishing to adopt Arlo is advised to research feline flu first.

Finally, we also have Pugsley who is a scared four year old boy who is known to hiss at people when opening the door of his capsule; because he is very afraid. We find that having food or treats helps.

Pugsley

Pugsley will let you stroke him for some tasty food in return, the food is definitely his heart’s path. We are looking for a quiet home with a patient and knowledgeable owner who is often home to spend time socializing. Children must be 14 years of age and over and no other pets.

If you would like to see the other cats and dogs who are currently looking for a new family, please visit our website.

To apply for any of our pets, please complete a Perfect Match Form. The fastest way to send it to us is by emailing info@rspcasouthport.co.uk

In closing, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

The RSPCA Southport, Ormskirk & District branch is located in New Cut Lane, Southport, Merseyside.

Richard Grainger, Animal Care Assistant, took the photos of the 2022 Chesterfield RSPCA calendar.

They are running a Christmas Advent Appeal on Facebook where each day offers different ways to help the vital work of caregivers.

Steph McCawley, Fan Engagement Manager, said: “Donations are extremely important to us and we greatly appreciate everything we receive. Thank you to everyone who has donated to our Christmas Advent appeal so far. If any of our supporters want to support us and donate cash, they can visit our website. All the funds we have received go directly to support the animals in our care. “

The RSPCA Chesterfield and North Derbyshire has also just launched its 2022 calendar which highlights some of the animals that have been helped in 2021. The photos were taken by the centre’s animal assistant, Richard Grainger, who selected the last 12. Calendars are on sale at the RSPCA Charity Shop in the Marketplace or in the Ebay store.

New kennels were completed this year as part of a £ 2million reconstruction at the RSPCA’s Chesterfield Animal Center.

Animal welfare is at the forefront of a £ 2million project to rebuild the 70-year-old building on Spital Lane, Chesterfield, where the RSPCA center is based.

A new isolation for dogs and cats, a reception, a pet store and a small animal unit are nearing completion. New kennels and a cattery were completed in the first phase of the project during containment.

Covid has posed numerous challenges to the charity’s Chesterfield base with a huge impact on its funds.

As an independent arm of the RSPCA, the center is solely responsible for raising its own funds to help the hundreds of animals in need in North Derbyshire.

The RSPCA branch in Chesterfield & North Derbyshire welcomed 110 dogs in 2021.

With the cancellation of events and the lack of attendance at the center, donations fell.

Despite this, staff at the center have worked tirelessly to ensure that they continue to relocate the animals, even remotely. The new families were able to find the animal they were looking for via their website, apply and receive their new cat or dog without meeting them first until the day a member of the team delivered them to their new homes.

Steph said: “It has been so heartwarming to see so many people opening their homes despite not meeting their new addition until we were there at their front doors. We have welcomed 132 cats and 110 dogs this year, which is incredible.

The RSPCA Chesterfield and North Derbyshire branch was able to forge good partnerships during this time working with the local Cat Protection Team and Pets at Home Cat Lounge in Chesterfield. The Pets at Home team helped the animal center rehouse 36 cats this year.

The Chesterfield Animal Care Center has dogs and cats looking for forever homes.

Steph added: “We would like to warmly thank the Pets at Home team in Chesterfield who have been so supportive. They were able to give the public the opportunity to meet the cats before welcoming them when we had to operate in a different way.

132 cats cared for by RSPCA Chesterfield & North Derbyshire were found with new owners in 2021.

Here are some of the animals looking for a home this holiday season.

sat

Sam has been an enthusiastic young dog looking for a home since July 28 of this year. The black and white puppy is around a year old and has a loving demeanor that he extends to everyone he meets.

Being still quite young, he is bursting with energy and loves to play, especially with his favorite squeaky toy that he regularly takes with him on his travels.

Sam is just as friendly with other dogs as he is with humans, but he is looking for a home where he will be a unique dog. He’ll need a quiet, adults-only home with owners willing to give him the love and patience he deserves.

For more information about Sam, you can check his profile here.



Sam is young and full of energy

rock

Peter the Bunny has a particularly apt name, as his beautiful watercolor markings make him look like he’s straight out of a Beatrix Potter tale. He has an equally charming personality and loves to be petted and manipulated.

He did not get the best start and was brought to the center by an inspector who found him very thin. He has come a long way since then and is ready for a loving home.

Peter is neutered and can therefore potentially live with a rabbit who needs a friend, as long as he is given time to bond. He will need a 6ft by 2ft hutch with a safe 6ft by 4ft run so he can jump happily.

For more information about Peter, you can see his profile here.

Moon

Lovely Luna has an incredibly sweet and playful nature, and dashing white socks. Luna arrived in Millbrook after being unhappy that a dog had joined her previous family. She therefore seeks a home where she can be the only pet.

While an adults-only home is preferable, she would consider living with older teens who respect the fact that she will need a bit of getting used to. Ultimately, Luna is ready for a home that will give her as much love as she is ready to give them.

Volunteers who give them love this Christmas

While there will be plenty of pets looking for a home this holiday season, they are sure to be loved by the 7,000 RSPCA volunteers looking after them.

Sarah Smith, who volunteers at Millbrook, is just one of many volunteers. Sarah started volunteering in the cattery a few years ago, after being inspired by her love of cats.

The Chertsey resident said: “For the past three years I’ve been working every Christmas morning at Millbrook in the cattery, it’s a great vibe.

“I love coming first to help feed the cats and clean the pens. We all hang out the cats’ stockings, distribute their balers and hang out playing with them. Adorable man brings mice to the grass to cat every year and it’s nice to give them to cats, they go crazy for them.

“I find it very rewarding to give rather than receive and it’s nice to spend time with the Millbrook team, it’s a friendly bunch. That’s, to me, what Christmas is. don’t have a big family, it’s just my son and mum who live miles away, so spending time at the cattery in the morning really makes my day. “

They volunteer their time throughout the year, including Christmas Day when they, along with our staff, make sure the animals in our care during the holiday season get lots of extra TLC.

Each year, the RSPCA animal charity welcomes thousands of lost, abandoned or poorly cared for animals.

Many of these animals have become shy and scared by the experiences they have had, but all it takes is a living home to feed them and make them happy and bounce back again.

The RSPCA is temporarily caring for these needy animals, but they all need someone to take them to their permanent homes.

Here are some of the cats, dogs and rabbits who are currently in search of their forever homes.

Dogs



Three year sapphire

Three-year-old Sapphire is in need of new accommodation after being taken in by the Poulton-le-Fylde center when her former owner was no longer able to care for her.

The RSPCA said, “She is a friendly and excitable girl who enjoys being the center of attention. She can be heard to other dogs and people so her new owner will need to continue training and socializing. any further.

“Sapphire is good with dogs but can get very horny so given her size this is not always well received by the other dog! However, we believe she could live with a calm and tolerant dog but several meetings at the animal center will be compulsory.

“Sapphire has a thick double coat which will require regular grooming and maintenance to prevent tangling. Adopters should have extensive dog experience, preferably with Tibetan mastiffs, and have a good understanding of the characteristics of the dog. race.”

For more details on Sapphire the Tibetan Mastiff you can check here.

Chico, 3, is a black and white mixed race who is also being treated at the Poulton-Le-Fylde center after his former owner was unable to provide him with the care he needed.

The RSPCA described Chico as: “A nice boy with a pretty laid back nature. He walks well on a leash and especially enjoys spending time off leash in the paddocks where he loves to zoom!

“We don’t think Chico has had a lot of interactions with other dogs as he can appear uncertain and not totally comfortable around them, so we think he will be better suited to a home where he is the only one. Pet He can be a bit cranky when his paws touched and his nails cut, so his new adopters should be aware of this.

“Chico is looking for an active home with someone who has dog experience, preferably with Lurchers, and who will help him adjust to life in a new home.”

Seven-year-old Niko is a currently cared for Mastiff in Poulton-Le-Fylde who is now looking for his forever home.

The RSPCA said: “Niko is a very friendly and confident woman looking for a calm home. She gets along well with other dogs and could therefore be relocated with a subsequent meeting at the center. She enjoys a good hug, lots of belly rubs and rolling in the grass.

“She once lived in a kennel in the backyard, so living in a house might seem a bit strange to her, but we think she will easily adapt to living indoors as she enjoys the comfort of doing the homework. nap on his duvet.

“She is extremely strong on a leash and needs extra walking aids so she would be looking for a home with someone who has experience with large dogs, who would be able to handle her when of walks.

“Due to its sometimes excitable nature, we believe it would be suitable for a household with older children. Niko has permanent skin problems, which should be monitored and treated if necessary with diet and medicated baths – this can be discussed with the staff when you meet her. “

The RSPCA said, “Giving Morticia time and patience is the way to earn a place in her heart. She is a very sweet cat once you bond with her, but it will take time, she. will need her own room with consistency where she can predict times of interaction with humans.

“Morticia certainly showed more confidence at home than at the cattery.

“Morticia will need a quiet home, in an adult-only environment without any other pets. Unfortunately, even though Morticia came from a multi-cat household, you might think she could live with another cat, in due to the feline flu symptoms that suffered both mom and kittens, she could not live with another cat. “

The RSPCA said: “Meet Bobby who is a special cat in need of a very special home. He was brought into our care due to concerns for his welfare. He was part of a multi-cat household but mainly lived in outdoors, so Bobby is extremely nervous and uncertain when around people.

“Despite all the efforts of the cattery teams to spend time rehabilitating and socializing with him, Bobby made it clear that he was still not very impressed with humans and much preferred his own space. .

“He is looking to be greeted as an outdoor cat again with owners who have a suitable secure space to keep him confined for the first few weeks before he is allowed out.

“He had blood tests, sterilized, vaccinated, microchipped and received initial treatment for fleas and worms, so his new owners would then be responsible for overseeing his care and making sure he was in good health. A rural location will be perfect for Bobby so please contact us if you can afford him a home. “

Moon

By Paul Gibson

First of all, we would like to thank everyone who came and supported our recent Christmas fair; to all visitors to the fair, stand holders, companies who donated raffle prizes and volunteers who helped organize the day and the raffle.

Without everyone coming together, we wouldn’t be able to organize events like this and raise crucial funds for the Animal Center. Once again, thank you all and we hope to see you all at our next events in 2022.

Meanwhile, here at the Animal Center, we have seen many animals that have been taken in over the past few weeks. However, a few have been neglected and are still in search of their forever homes.

First, we have the beautiful Luna who is a two year old German Shepherd. We need experienced owners for her who have already had a shepherd or the like.

Luna’s new owners will need to be patient and willing to devote time and work to Luna, so that she can grow into a confident and well-rounded girl. Luna enjoys walking around, although we find that she can pull quite hard on the leash. She needs more training.

Luna can be nervous when meeting new people and exploring new environments. New owners will need to take it slow and avoid putting her in situations that she may not be able to cope with, such as walking her in high traffic areas with lots of other dogs running off leash. Luna must be the only pet in an adult-only household.

Second, in the cattery we have the beautiful Molly, who has been with us for 150 days and continues. Molly searches for her forever home as a domestic cat. We are looking for owners who understand the different enrichment and feeding needs of a domestic cat. Molly also needs an adults-only home with no other pets. Molly is a long haired cat and will need regular grooming to keep her coat in peak condition.

Molly

We also have the handsome Gok, who is a five year old boy looking for a home for himself. We have found Gok to be a very friendly and confident boy who appreciates a lot of affection and will be happy to sit down when he receives scratches on his head.

Gok is an independent boy who likes to hang out in his group. Gok will work best in a home with older children (12+) without other pets.

Gok

Finally, we also have Freddie, a three year old boy. Freddie is a carrier of the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and for this reason he must be a house cat, which means he cannot go outside, because if he did, he would risk infecting other cats.

We discovered that Freddie was a nervous boy, who needed a quiet home without other animals.

Freddie

To help Freddie settle into his new home, his new owners will need to provide him with safe spaces, where he can rest and spend time alone whenever he wants. Once Freddie gets to know you, he’ll pick up some treats from you. We find it a good way to build a relationship with him. Recently we found Freddie stepping out of his pod to greet those he knows.

If you think you can provide a warm and loving home for Freddie, Gok, Molly or Luna, please see our website for a Perfect Match application form. The fastest way to send us your application is by email.

Once we have received your application, we will contact you.

The RSPCA Southport, Ormskirk & District branch is located in New Cut Lane, Southport, Merseyside.

The Animal Center

By Paul Gibson

This week I thought I could do a bit of comparison and contrast between the past and the present.

The National RSPCA was founded in 1824, making it almost 200 years old and the world’s first animal welfare charity, but that then begs the question of how old is the Southport branch? Do you know, we are not at all sure? We know we became a registered charity over 50 years ago in 1963, but we do know that the branch, although not always located in New Cut Lane, Southport, existed long before that date .

Looking back through old newspaper clippings you can now do this online, I found quite a few articles and thought it might be interesting to reproduce one from Liverpool ECHO from October 16, 1909, over 112 years ago!

“RSPCA SOUTHPORT, BIRKDALE AND DISTRICT [now Southport, Ormskirk & District Branch] Inspector Eakins reports that in September: “All important centers in the district were visited regularly and close surveillance was exercised on all forms of trafficking in which animals were used.

“Horses pulling carts, wagonettes, etc., were specially watched and frequently examined at different times during their journey. The saddle asses on the shore were daily examined and watched at work, and many precautions were given to drivers and others for unnecessary use of the pole.

“Night duty was performed in connection with the horses of the carriers working” between Southport and Liverpool, and the animals were closely examined for harness contact injuries or other forms of cruelty, such as overloading, etc.

“During the month, eight were brought before the magistrates, seven on summons and one on warrant, for acts of serious cruelty, as follows:

* For unfit workhorses, three; to beat a horse with a big whip, a; for injuring a cat with an air pistol .; causing cruelty to horses (by owners) two; and for having mutilated seven geese without cause.

“Convictions followed in all cases except one, the last one mentioned, and it failed due to the departure from the country of one of the prosecution witnesses. Three cases in which citations are issued are currently pending. returned to the head office on the 13th inst. “

While the circumstances at the time must have been very different, much of the work undertaken at the time continues to this day, although perhaps not in the same scenarios.

Cruelty, in the first place, is now mainly dealt with by national society. The branch now focuses on follow-up / rehabilitation care and rehousing after the cruelty has taken place. However, this cruelty continues at a steady pace and the need for us continues.

Your continued support in this regard is essential and always appreciated. If you would like to help in any way, please see our website for more information.

… and looking to the future.

It has been a busy few weeks here at the New Cut Lane Animal Center, PR8 3DW, many animals said goodbye to us and left to start their new lives with their families forever. But don’t worry, for anyone looking for new canine or feline friends, we still have plenty of new pets in need of homes.

First, we have the beautiful Luna. Luna is a two year old German Shepherd looking for a home with experienced owners who have owned a German Shepherd in the past.

She needs a very patient family who will be ready to work with her so that she can gain self-confidence and become a well-rounded girl.

Moon

Luna likes to go out for walks although she is strong in the lead, she is nervous to meet new people and explore new surroundings, so new owners will need to take it easy and avoid putting her in situations that could put her in a position. uncomfortable.

It took a while for Luna to start settling here in kennel life, and we think it will take a while for her to adjust to family life. Luna must be the only pet in an adult-only household.

For anyone looking for a feline friend we have the very beautiful long haired lady called Molly, she is looking for her forever home as a house cat.

Molly

We are looking for owners who understand the different needs of a domestic cat and can provide appropriate enrichment. Molly also demands a pet-free home with adults only. Molly is a long haired cat and will need regular grooming to keep her coat in peak condition.

We found out that Molly was an independent older girl who likes to do her own thing.

Ivy is another girl in the cattery. She is a beautiful 18 month old cat; she’s a little uncertain at first but quickly learns to trust you and loves attention once she gets to know you.

Ivy

Ivy lacks self-confidence and therefore needs a patient owner who will give her plenty of time and space to adjust to her new home life. Ivy must be the only pet in the house, and all children must be 10 years of age and over.

Finally, we also have the very handsome Gok. We have found that Gok has a lovely calm nature and appears to be a laid back cat who takes things in his stride. He has settled into cattery life well and is very friendly with all the staff and volunteers he meets.

Gok

Gok is an independent boy and enjoys being outdoors. This affectionate boy loves cuddles but doesn’t like to be picked up, so an older household would be better without other pets.

If you would like to apply for any of our animals, please visit our website to read our full adoption procedures online.

We ask that you send a Perfect Match form to apply for any animal. Once we receive the request, we will contact you. Please note that we work on a first come, first served policy, so please submit a request as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

We will have a lot of festive fun for the whole family. Tickets for the Christmas raffle are on sale now; this will be drawn at the fair.
