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.

There are now 15 flood warnings in place for Wales as well as 34 flood alerts.

Sustained rains and winds caused by storms Dudley and Eunice, as well as the upcoming Franklin, have forced Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to issue a series of alerts.

There are three types of warnings and alerts issued by NRW: Flood Alerts, Flood Warnings and Severe Flood Warnings.

The least serious is a flood alert. It means “a flood is possible, be prepared”.

Then it’s a flood warning which means “A flood is forecast – immediate action is required”.

The highest level is a severe flood warning, meaning there is a threat to life.

NRW issued 15 flood warnings and 34 alerts.

The 15 flood warnings cover the upper parts of the Severn, Wye Teme and Vyrnwy.

Here are the 15 flood warnings in place:

River Severn

  • Taf and Cynin rivers
  • North Wales Coast
  • Anglesey West Coast
  • Lleyn Peninsula and Cardigan Bay Coastline

What should I do to prepare for a flood?

According to NRW, you should consider the needs of everyone on your property and make sure everyone knows the escape plan:

  • it might be safer to move to an upstairs room, ideally with a window that could be a potential escape route
  • if you are in a basement or a bungalow, think of another place where you could settle for more security
  • think about where you might move your belongings, upstairs, on furniture or in your car
  • store valuables or sentimental items high up all year round

You should also prepare a flood kit of essential items and keep it handy in case you are evacuated and make sure people know where to find it.

This should include:

  • copies of your home insurance documents
  • phone charger and battery
  • a list of important phone numbers
  • a torch with spare batteries
  • a radio – on your phone or on battery
  • warm and waterproof clothing and blankets
  • a first aid kit and prescription medication
  • bottled water and non-perishable food
  • baby food and childcare articles
  • pet supplies
  • rubber gloves and rubber boots
  • face masks and hand sanitizer

Keep a list of important phone numbers in your flood kit, this should include:

  • Flood Line 0345 988 1188
  • Local Authority Emergency Helpline
  • your insurance company’s 24-hour number and your policy number
  • local radio station frequency for news alerts and weather updates
  • family and neighbors
  • business phone numbers
  • doctor surgery
  • local police station
  • vet/kennel/cattery
  • local hotel or B&B
  • gas supplier and meter number
  • electricity supplier and meter number
  • water supplier and meter number
  • electrician
  • plumber
  • constructor

Check your insurance

  • Confirm that you are covered against flooding (ask your insurer, landlord or rental agent).
  • Find out if the policy covers alternative accommodation if needed.
  • Find out if the policy replaces the new with the old and if it limits repairs.
  • Don’t underestimate the value of your content.
  • Take photos of your property and make a list of your belongings to help with future insurance claims.
  • Check your auto insurance and what your policy considers preventable and unavoidable flood damage.

During a flood, you must turn off gas, electricity and water.

  • The gas valve is usually located next to your gas meter.
  • Your electrical network is usually a red switch on your fuse box.
  • Your water shutoff valve is usually located under a kitchen sink or where the water pipe enters your home.

Contact your supplier if you are unsure how to proceed.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have started their one-day visit to Kent.

The Royals made their first stop of the day at Sheppey Matters, based at the Sheerness Healthy Living Center this morning (February 2).

Here they encountered community groups that help and promote a healthy lifestyle in the immediate community.

Their Royal Highnesses also met a refugee family who have settled in the county.

But the Royals have now split their time – with Camilla moving to the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home (Battersea Brands Hatch) branch in Crowhurst Lane, Ash.

The Duchess of Cornwall is a patron of the charity and today marks her first visit.

The staff members welcomed Camilla and took her to visit the kennels and the cattery.



Paul O’Grady and Sausage eagerly await the arrival of Camilla and her dogs

Paul O’Grady was also on hand for most of the morning with his dog Sausage the dachshund in his role as Battersea Ambassador.

He is the face of the ITV show, For the Love of Dogs, documenting the journeys of dogs in search of forever homes.

Paul has lived in Aldington for over two decades.

Together they took a brief walk through the woods with one of the rescue dogs who has yet to find his loving home.

The Duchess’ own dogs, Beth and Bluebell, who accompanied their owner on tour, will be invited to join one of Paul O’Grady’s dogs in a training challenge known as Temptation Alley.

The premise of the game is that dogs are encouraged to ignore dog treats laid out on one path and walk straight towards their owner at the other end.

A “saucy” cat who had to return for the second time to an animal shelter is looking for new owners.

Tilly, the short-haired seven-year-old, has returned to RSPCA Hillfield House in Stretton following “a change in circumstances”.

Animal experts at the shelter say she is looking for a “very special” home and a “very understanding” owner, as she can be quite “saucy”.

However, despite her attitude, she has a special place in everyone’s heart and it takes a “special type of bond” to welcome Tilly into your home.

Learn more about the best stories from Burton and Swadlincote

A spokesperson for the shelter said: “Tilly is looking for a very special home and someone who is very understanding as she can be quite sassy.

“We know that since she’s been out of the cattery and in her previous home, she can be quite a loving and sweet girl, however, due to the stress of the cattery, it’s rare that we see that side of her. , she is quite easy to work with and has shown a modicum of aggression when her boundaries and space are respected, always gently taking treats from our hands.

“However wise handling, Tilly really doesn’t like it and was very quick to show aggression when she attempted to pet. Although on occasion she appreciates a little affection, she does not does that on her own terms and so if she’s not in the mood she’ll be quick to let you know.



Tilly the cat

“Although this sassy lady can be difficult to deal with, she has taken a special place in the hearts of all who have worked with her, because it creates a special kind of bond to understand a cat like Tilly, one of whom, we know, can be further developed into the perfect home.

“It’s a must for Tilly to be a unique cat as this can trigger her grumpy side. Ideally she would benefit from a home with lots of land, a farm or smallholding where she can choose to be with or away from people. “

If you are interested in adopting Tilly, you can contact the shelter through their website.

These three cats are expected to start another homeless year and continue to live in the care of the RSPCA.

Farrah, Thomas and Joe are currently being treated at the Solent branch of the RSPCA in Stubbington, near Fareham.

All three require loving, loving care, and the volunteers at the center are confident that the right owners are there.

The RSPCA has provided profiles on each describing their main personality traits. Before we consider adoption, let’s start by learning a bit more about Farrah, Thomas, and Joe.

All information was taken from the Stubbington Ark website in line.

Farrah



Farrah

Raise: domestic short haired

Age: 15 years

At 15, poor Farrah found herself in the care of the RSPCA.

Described as an absolute darling by the volunteers at the center, Farrah enjoys little stories but will let you know when she has had enough.

Staff say her favorite thing is rubbing her legs while you’re sitting in a chair – she would do it all day if she could.

She’s looking for someone to spend her twilight years with and would like her new owner to be there most of the time.

More details on Farrah can be found online. here.

Thomas

Thomas

Raise: Domestic long haired

Age: 15 years

What a beautiful boy Thomas is. Unfortunately his owners went to sheltered accommodation so he was turned over to the RSPCA in Stubbington.

When he first arrived at the center, Thomas would have been quite hesitant and would have brushed off the volunteers. However, once settled in, he showed just how loving and affectionate a boy he is.

He is said to enjoy the bustle, attention, and human company, so just like Farrah, he would benefit from the presence of his new owners most of the time.

Learn more about Thomas online here.

Joe



Photo of Joe, Domestic Shorthair Cat looking for a home in Hampshire
Joe

Raise: domestic short haired

Age: About 2 years

Poor Joe was incredibly afraid of the cattery environment when he arrived and took the time to settle in.

His default reaction was to whistle at the volunteers, but over time he slowly started to trust the staff more and more while also growing a lot more confident.

He is now more comfortable with people and the staff say his personality is really starting to show.

Joe’s full profile is available online here.

A few weeks before Christmas, rescue shelters are full of animals looking for someone to spend it with.

The RSPCA Millbrook Animal Center in Chobham is no different.

Millbrook website has a number of animal profiles in search of their forever homes, from fluffy cats to cuddly rats.

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.



Peter the Rabbit at the RSPCA Millbrook Animal Center
Peter is a very friendly bunny who loves to nibble on grass and be petted

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.

To learn more about Luna, you can visit her profile here.

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.



Sarah Smith, from Chertsey, is one of the thousands of volunteers who donate their time to animals in the care of the RSPCA this Christmas

“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.

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.”

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.”

“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. “

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

“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. “

They worked with Cat Welfare Luton to find her; put up posters, post on social media, contact local vets and drop flyers in the area.

Sixteen days later, she was spotted, caught, and rushed to a local vet for life-saving treatment to put her shattered jaw back in place and remove her damaged eye.

Her injuries had prevented her from eating, so she was hungry and very weak.

Southridge deputy manager Mona Jorgensen said: “It’s a miracle she survived these horrific injuries, especially since they left her unable to eat. She showed that she was a real fighter.

“After her operation, she was tube fed for the first week, then when she got to our cattery, we slowly weaned her off normal food and helped her start walking again.”



Trudie has been described as a ‘miracle’ cat after being hit by a bus

Her name was Trudie, in honor of Saint Gertrude, the patron saint of cats, and spent six months caring for her until she regained her full health before beginning to search for a home for her.

Mona added, “We all spent so much time with Trudie and she had a special place in all of our hearts. After everything we had been through, we knew we had to find the most amazing home for her.

Dennis Hooper, of South Mimms, heard about Trudie through his daughter who was desperate to provide a home for the local celebrity.

He said: “My daughter and her fiance were not suitable for Trudie because they have another cat, but we knew we could give her a lovely and quiet home.

“We’re big animal lovers, especially cats, and I knew I would choose an animal that had gone through the worst times so that I could show them a good life.”

The couple got Trudie back last week and she is settling in well in her new home.

Dennis said, “She’s smashing; she loves stories and is a real darling. She is progressing really well. She loves spending time in the sunny porch; she has her own chair, two armchairs and a sofa to choose from so that she can move around to take a nap in different places!

“She loves watching the birds in the birdbath and we have a lovely big garden so once she’s ready I’m sure she’ll enjoy exploring the outdoors.

“When she was rescued she was in such a state and was really emaciated as she hadn’t eaten in 16 days, but now she’s getting a little bit dirty so we have to cut down on her food a bit.

“We didn’t realize how much of a star she was; she even asked Americans to donate to help her and ask for updates.

“She had been with Southridge for a long time and the girls were almost in tears when we picked her up, but we told them to come visit her whenever they want!”

A ‘miracle’ cat who survived 16 days after being hit by a bus is now looking for a new home after RSPCA staff spent five months treating her.

Tortoiseshell cat Trudie suffered catastrophic head injuries when struck by a bus in Luton, Bedfordshire on March 14. Passers-by tried to help the young wanderer, but she was terrified and ran away.

Animal care assistant Amy Hearne and volunteer Katie Duncan – both of whom work at the RSPCA Southridge Animal Center in Hertfordshire – were determined to find the poor cat, put up posters, make calls on social media , contacting local vets and charities, delivering flyers to homes and businesses in the area, and working with Cat Welfare Luton to try to find her.

Eventually, she was spotted on March 30 by a local business owner who contacted the RSPCA. Sixteen days after being beaten and seriously injured, she was caught and rushed to a local veterinary clinic for life-saving treatment.

Amy explained, “Her facial injuries prevented her from eating, so she was weak and exhausted and must have been in so much pain. She spent a week at the vet where she underwent life-saving surgery to remove her eye and put her jaw back in place. I can’t believe she survived as long as she did; it is a little fighter.



Trudie was exhausted, frail and clearly in trouble when the RSPCA found her

During the first week, Trudie was tube fed and when she was transferred to the Southridge Cattery, staff provided round-the-clock care to help her eat normally again and to help her heal. put back on legs.

Amy said, “Trudie is a miracle so we gave her a very special name; Trudie, according to Ste Gertrude, the patron saint of cats. We spent months helping Trudie recover and build her strength and we all fell in love with her.

“She is cheeky, affectionate and playful; she is such a character and will bring so much joy to the right family. She’s still a youngster and loves to play, but she’s also a real hug and will curl up in your lap within seconds of you sitting down.

“She loves meals – which is not surprising given all she’s been through – and is very talkative; she definitely lets you know when she’s hungry! She might be a little cat, but she has a big personality.

The staff are looking for a rural home away from busy roads and train tracks where Trudie can enjoy access to a private and safe garden with plenty of room to play and explore. She would like to be the only cat in the house and doesn’t want to live with dogs but can go with a family with children eight years and older.
