Members of the public residing within the branch area and in receipt of certain means-tested benefits are assisted in meeting the cost of emergency veterinary treatment. The branch also offers low cost neutering of animals belonging to those residing within the branch area and in receipt of one or more of the above benefits. The branch can ONLY accept animals for re-homing from an RSPCA Inspector. ( we are NOT able to accept unwanted or stray animals directly from members of the public) All our cats and dogs are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before leaving our care. All our adult cats are blood tested for aids and leukaemia Some kittens and puppies may be too young for vaccination and neutering. In this case, the person adopting the animal is responsible for ensuring that their animal is both neutered and fully vaccinated, and also that annual vaccination 'boosters' are given. This also gives the veterinary surgeon the opportunity to give your pet an 'MOT' - hopefully spotting any potential health problems in the process. This can save you money in the long run, as well as saving your pet from unnecessary suffering. Please note: These policies are specific to this branch and in no way obviate the policies of the National Society, which this branch fully endorses.
