Golden oldie Morag ended up in rescue at the age of 21, the equivalent of 100 years in human years.

Came into the care of the Holdings Animal Rescue and Rehoming Center in Kempsey last month, after her previous owner was no longer able to care for her, she had people willing to adopt her from Australia, from Japan and the United States, after his story made headlines around the world.

The oldest cat ever to enter the RSPCA Animal Placement Center in Worcester, Morag chose to stay closer to home in retirement, finding family in the West Midlands.

Staff at the RSPCA branch in Worcester and Mid Worcestershire, which run the centre, initially feared that Morag’s age might discourage potential adopters. But a call for the super senior moggie took off very quickly, with nearly 50,000 reactions and more than 3,000 shares on a social media post.

A calm and quiet home – which was essential given her advanced age – was identified for Morag in Worcester, not far from the centre, where she has settled in well.

His new owner affectionately described Morag as “high maintenance, as you would expect from a senior cat”, and said his favorite hobbies are “sleeping, walking and eating”.

She is said to have ventured upstairs and into the garden and really enjoys being picked up for a hug, purring loudly in everyone’s ears and joining her new owners on the couch when they watch TV.

Ned Cotton, who runs the relocation centre, said: “We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the response to our appeal for a care home for Morag. Home offers came from Michigan, Florida, Texas and Pennsylvania as well as Australia and Japan. People also sent gifts and toys and we were very touched by all the messages we received wishing him good luck.

“We never thought for a moment that her story would take off the way it did, but a 21-year-old cat looking for a nursing home to live out the rest of her life seemed to resonate with people and us. we were inundated with interest and offers of homes for her.

“Her coat was very matted when she was handed over to us so part of it was shaved to make her feel a little more comfortable. But her fur is now growing back and her new owner says she is starting to have sound really fluffy, which is wonderful to hear.

“We are delighted that she has found a wonderful home and we know that she will be pampered and much loved there, as she deserves.”

Morag’s story has also helped raise the profile of the Worcester branch’s local animal welfare work, with more people visiting their website, connecting with them on social media and learning about animal adoption. a pet from the Holdings Rescue and Rehoming Center.

While the famous feline may have found her forever home, there are still plenty of other cats at the center still hoping to find their own, including five-year-old Todd, who finds cattery life rather frightening and overwhelming, four-year-old Gideon, who bears the scars of his previous life as a stray, and six-year-old Declan, who was given up for adoption because his previous owners were moving and couldn’t take him with them.

Free educational tours of DSPCA shelters will return in May after two years of cancellation.

The Rathfarnham Animal Welfare Charity has been running the tours for years, but they have been on hold since 2020 due to the pandemic.

Schools, colleges, and community groups are all welcome to attend the tours and create a session appropriate to the age and ability of the participants.

The DSPCA held online educational conferences during Covid-19, but said it was “really nice” to return to face-to-face visits.

DSPCA’s Gillian Bird told Dublin Live: “We are still doing online discussions and we would encourage schools to do the online discussions and then follow it up with a visit to the shelter.

“Basically what we do is if they haven’t come to see us before, we do an introductory speech in our class.

“We tell them about the work we do here at the DSPCA, why the animals are here, what they will see, what they won’t see, why they will and won’t see certain animals.

“And we explain to them that it’s a working shelter with a working vet and we have wildlife and stuff.

“So we tell them we can bring them down to see the cats and dogs available for rehousing, but we can’t get you to areas that have very nervous wildlife like foxes and badgers.

“So we explain to them what animals are there and what we currently have in the shelter we are looking after.

“We will then have a topical discussion and discuss anything that might be of interest to teachers.”

Then the group is taken on a 1.5km walk around the grounds where there are views of the Hellfire Club and Dublin Bay.

Biodiversity, ecosystems and wildlife are all covered during a site visit and groups also visit the dog relocation kennels and cattery.

There is also a stable area with resident goats, ducks, chickens and pigs and a picnic area to end the tour with lunch.

Gillian said tours are free but donations are always appreciated.

She asked teachers to contact the DSPCA with any questions they had and said online chats were available ahead of the tour.

Strathbogie Shire Council reminds pet owners that registrations must be renewed by April 10.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Laura Binks said it was also a timely reminder for anyone who has recently welcomed a new cat or dog into their home or recently moved to the area that they should register their pets with the council.

“It’s an easy process to register your pet with the council. All you have to do is visit our council offices at 109A Binney St, Euroa, complete a pet registration form. company and pay your fees with our friendly customer service team,” said Cr Binks.

“Cats and dogs aged three months or over must be registered with the council and they must be microchipped before check-in.”

Cr Binks said registering dogs and cats was important for many reasons and it increased the chances that animals would be returned to their owners if they got lost.

Registration provides a range of other important services, including:

• a municipal identification tag to be worn by your pet;

• a lost and found service, which guarantees that if your animal is found bearing the municipal identification bookmark, you will be notified;

• municipal services to respond to calls about stray dogs or dog attacks, including removing aggressive dogs from the streets, so you and your pet can walk safely;

• municipal services to deal with nuisance problems, such as barking dogs, trespassing cats and ownerless animals;

• municipal control of ‘dangerous’, ‘threatening’ and ‘restricted breed’ dogs in your area, which ensures that they do not pose a threat to the community;

• municipal control of pet shops, boarding houses, catteries, pounds, shelters and animal breeding and training businesses, which ensures that they comply with the basic standards of animal welfare imposed by law;

• A state government education program for schools which visits all primary schools in Victoria and teaches children about dog safety and how to be a responsible pet owner; and

• A state government education program for preschools that teaches children and parents how to avoid dog attacks at home and in public places.

“We encourage members of the community to be responsible pet owners, register your pet and ensure they wear their ID tag at all times,” Cr Binks said.

The RSPCA Victoria is once again urging pet owners to take responsibility for their pets this summer as reports of cruelty for abandonment continue to rise in the warmer months. The organization received 1,163 reports of abandoned animals in the last fiscal year, including 384 in the past summer alone. Chief Inspector Michael Stagg said the number of cruelty reports linked to abandonment is truly disappointing. More news: Elective surgery to restart at Bendigo Health by the end of the month “As owners or caretakers of animals, we have a duty of care and a legal obligation to ensure that they receive food, water, shelter and veterinary care,” he said. “If you leave, that duty of care requires that you take care of your animals in your absence.” plans for you and your family, you need to make sure you have plans for your pets as well. “Leaving animals unattended for long periods can cause suffering and can be fatal, especially in hot weather when they need extra water and access to shade,” the inspector said in Chief Stagg. The RSPCA Victoria has reminded pet owners who need to travel that leaving food or water for pets unattended for an extended period is not an adequate arrangement. Other Stories: All owners should take responsibility for their pets and ask family or friends for help or consider using the services of a boarding house or pet sitter. Reports of cruelty related to abandoned animals increase during the warmer months, with many reports filed by concerned members of the community. Before travelling, owners who have arranged for someone to care for animals in their absence should inform neighbors of their plans to avoid unnecessary worry. Under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1986, anyone in charge of an animal is required to provide food, water and shelter, as well as animal husbandry and veterinary care appropriate as needed. If you’re leaving pets with friends or family: More news: The late-night dessert that’s reinvigorating Bendigo’s nightlife If you’re using mobile pet sitting: Catteries and boarding houses ‘they can no longer properly care for their animals, there is no shame in returning them and we urge those struggling to contact RSPCA Victoria for help and advice,’ Mr Stagg said.

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.

A cattery is threatened with closure after almost 30 years after the refusal to renew its license.

Barnside Boarding Cattery in Meopham has appealed the decision of Gravesham Council, but will have to close if unsuccessful.

If Barnside closes, there will be only one licensed cattery in the borough. Image: Google

Owner Lynne Bull said: “If I can’t operate, it will have to shut down.

“It’s been my life for so long. Cats have been a part of my life since 1980.

“It’s tough. I’m gutted but there will be a lot of more gutted people if Barnside shuts down.”

The license expired on December 14, but since Lynne still had cats in her care, she was allowed to continue operating until the end of January, albeit without a license. She advertised it on her website and educates clients.

If the Wrotham Road, Meopham facility ceases to operate, there will only be one licensed cattery left in the borough, The Nook Pet Hotel in Brewers Road, Shorne.

Barnside’s license renewal was denied after an officer from Gravesham Council inspected the site. In the correspondence sent to Lynne, which she shared with KentOnline, the reasons were as follows:

  • Illegal boarding of seven cats in a significantly non-compliant area of ​​the cattery
  • No emergency contact information displayed, including a veterinarian phone number
  • Failure to meet a series of conditions, including paperwork, adequate training records for staff, and drug storage
  • Her own cats were very matted and in poor condition.

Lynne says she told council the seven additional cats were being kept at the facility after helping an animal charity save them when they were dumped in the area in the summer. She said they were not in her care, but admitted to failing to consult the regulations regarding rescue cats.

In response to the other issues raised, she said she received equivalent Level 2 training and made sure all staff were trained in animal welfare, emergency contact details were posted in the office but have now been distributed inside the cattery, and she believes that all medications are stored properly and that she is completing the documentation according to standards.

Regarding her own cats, she explained that they don’t like being groomed, so she waits for spring, when it’s warmer, and denies that they were “very” matted.

In 2018, new regulations were adopted by the government to enhance animal welfare. These regulations are enforced by local authorities.

Before this change, the licensing systems used to regulate businesses had been in place for over 50 years.

Gravesham’s council has been approached for comment but said with an appeal pending it would be inappropriate to comment at this time.

A kennel owner who died in a dog attack was a passionate animal welfare activist who worked tirelessly to give abused dogs another chance at life, his friends and colleagues said.

Adam Watts was killed on Wednesday in the Juniper kennel and cattery he ran in Kirkton of Auchterhouse, near Dundee, by a dog that police had previously seized and brought to him for rehab.

Watts, 55, was pronounced dead at the scene after the attack, which allegedly involved a large bulldog-type animal.

The father of five wrote on the kennel’s Facebook page that his five sons had helped him with his work. His wife is believed to have died of stomach cancer eight years ago at the age of 46.

Police said there would be no suspicious circumstances and a report will be sent to the tax prosecutor.

Save Our Seized Dogs, a group dedicated to helping owners whose pets are seized under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, said Watts had worked with police in Dundee. “Adam would take any dog ​​to give them a chance at life and was the kennel of choice for the police in Dundee,” the group said on Facebook. “His gentle, calm nature quickly gained the trust of some of the most abused dogs and they were able to leave him to find loving homes.

“Adam died doing what he loved. He leaves behind five boys of whom he was the only parent. He spoke of them often and was so proud that the older boys helped him with the dogs.

Juniper Kennels advertised themselves as having 22 kennels of varying sizes and eight catteries, with an enclosed exercise area at the back where dogs could run freely and safely. He also offered walks on a leash, one dog at a time.

Wallace Vets, who has centers around Dundee, posted a tribute on his website, describing Watts as “the most caring man who went above and beyond in his passion for animal care, and worked tirelessly for help give some a loving future with a new family ”.

Edinburgh-based dog training company SuperSmart Dog Training and Behavior said: “He wasn’t just a kennel owner. He rescued many dogs that he felt needed rescuing and would campaign for the welfare of the dogs. Everyone who met him found a caring and loving man who lived for his five boys and his dogs. Since the death of his wife, it was his life [and he] put his heart and soul into saving dogs.

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.
