STOP PRESS!   

This weeks round up of Marvelous Moggies and Beautiful Bunnies up for rehoming... Please peek at our precious pets who urgently need their fur-ever home..full details on our 'Find a Pet' page!

* *Tiny Tim, the white/tabby eight year old boy - Tiny Tim is calm, friendly and has lived with dogs in his former home. He is neutered, chipped and vacinated - and one last thing - Tiny Tim is BIG!

* * We are so sad to let you know that Florence crossed the rainbow bridge.  Fabulous Florence the tri-coloured stray cat, was collected from one of our Inspectors, incredibly dehydrated and unwell with cat flu.  She was very thin, a little scruffy and had no teeth, we think she died from old age (unknown because she was a stray) and overwhelming health issues.  Florence died peacefully in her wonderful fosterers arms. Sleep tight Florence. xx

* * Bluebell arrvied this week - sadly, her owner died and left her orphaned.  She is a lovely, friendly five year old girl who would suit a quiet household.

* * Progress report on Ellie who has a fractured pelvis from a road traffic accident.  Ellie has been on cage rest for just over 2 weeks now. She is standing better on her back legs everyday and has been moved to a bigger pen.  She is also much cleaner, between us (Ellie and her wonderful carer/fosterer), we are removing the caked on mud from her right side. She is such a lovely friendly girl and purrs when she gets any attention.

Before......                                                                                                                                             Now!

  • The Chiltern Branch of the RSPCA is locally based animal welfare charity that works to prevent cruelty to and suffering of animals.  Every year we rescue hundreds of unwanted, stray and abandoned animals.  We serve the areas of Dacorum, Aylesbury, and Buckingham as a separately registered branch of the RSPCA.  We are responsible for raising our own funds locally to help animals in our area.  We raise funds through events and our two charity shops in Aylesbury and Buckingham and through donations and legacies we receive from the public.

We are currently fundraising to help pay the vets bills for seven poorly pups... 

Firstly,  we  had  the  Wendover  6,  six  pups  found  abandoned  in  a  suitcase  (in  Wendover!)  All  were  neglected, in  a very  bad  way and needed a lot of care and treatment.  Luckily, we have access to some wonderful vetinary surgeons and nurses, not forgetting some pretty amazing fosterers who give their time and love to reinstate these abused, abandoned animals faith in human nature.  

Secondly, we  also  have  substantial  vet  bills  for  Tess  the  Terrier,  un-microchipped Tess  was  hit  by  a  car  and  had  to  undergo  major  surgery  for  a  fractured  pelvis.   We went for a check up today  (5/12/17) and the vets were very pleased with her progress.  She can now bare weight on her left rear leg and muscle is beginning to grow around the hip joint.  She had her first vaccination and was microchipped.  We have to return for a final check in four weeks and then she can be spayed.  She is becoming a happy and active little terrier but is nervous of strangers - we are confident she will become a loving pet to a loving forever home.  Tess deserves that.

On to the costs... we are a small branch of the National RSPCA - helping  abused  and  neglected  animals  in  the  Chiltern  area  and  are self funding.  The  Wendover  Six  vets  bills  amounted  to  well  over  £3,500. Tess’s veterinary bills have been over £1,000 so far and we are hoping that some generous souls may send a donation towards the bills.   If you can please contribute at all, every penny will be very much appreciated.  Thank you!

 

WE URGENTLY NEED VOLUNTEERS TO HELP AT OUR AYLESBURY & BUCKINGHAM SHOPS ON MONDAYS, TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS, THURSDAYS, FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS - have you a few hours a week spare to come along and help serve customers, sort donations, assist with the back room tasks? 

  • We are also recruiting volunteers with fundraising experience... can you help?  Maybe you know an amazing event organiser with a couple of hours a week to spare? Or someone who can help us arrange awareness events/man(or woman) a stall at a market/fete?  Or even research potential venues/pitches?

    Please contact Cherry Cooke (cherry@rspcachiltern.org.uk)  if you are in the Chiltern area - or know someone who is...
