Saturday June 10th at 3:00 pm we will be hosting our second family story time. We will be reading “Three Orphaned Kittens” written by Margaret Wise Brown. We will be discussing adoption and all the things that are needed when bringing home a kitten. Most importantly we will have the opportunity to visit and play with some cuddly and mischievous little kittens as well. Story time is open to families with children of all ages. There is no cost for story time but our cats and kittens would love donations of cat nip or cat toys!
*This is not a drop off program and all parents must stay with their children for the duration.
Mark your calendars! HBSPCA Rabies Clinic happening Thursday June 29th at the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
The recent confirmation of a second cat in the area with rabies should raise concerns for pet owners within our community. Keeping our pets up-to-date on their rabies vaccine is the only way to prevent the spread of this deadly disease, which is found in the saliva of infected animals, and it’s transmitted to pets and people through bites or open wounds.
This CTV News article reports that the bulk of rabies cases has happened in and around Hamilton, with a second raccoon testing positive in Six Nations.
This clinic will also be a microchip clinic. Prices are as follows:
$25 for rabies vaccine AND a microchip
$20 for microchip
Please remember to bring your dogs on leash and your cats in carriers. This will be a walk-in clinic, no need to make an appointment in advance.
