Just to whet your appetites for our Bigger and Better show in two weeks time.

This year's show will begin at 12 noon (registration) with the first class starting at 12.30. Lots of side shows and activities as well as the main show itself. Please come along and help raise even more money to help local animals.

Animal Welfare Statistics for May

During May the branch rehomed three dogs, two cats and nine ferrets. Our clinic treated 218 dogs, 68 cats, 10 rabbits and 8 miscellaneous small furries.

Numbers of rabbits seen by the clinic continue to be worryingly low considering that this is the time of year when rabbits should be vaccinated against myxomatosis.
