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.
The only event for cat lovers is coming back to Hamilton for its second edition.
Join us on Friday July 14th at 6:30 pm at the Lincoln Alexander Centre – 160 King St. E. for an exclusive screening of the acclaimed, award-winning documentary “Kedi”* (watch trailer).
Hundreds of thousands of Turkish cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, the cats of Istanbul live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame — and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.
Critics and internet cats agree — this cat documentary will charm its way into your heart and home as you fall in love with the cats in Istanbul. “Remarkable. A splendid graceful and quietly magical documentary” – Variety magazine
