NEW!!! RSPCA Pet Food

NEW!!! RSPCA Pet FoodSome of you who have recently adopted a pet from us will have noticed the new pet food we now sell. The RSPCA now has it's own pet food range which we are feeding the animals in the centre. When you adopt from us you can purchase a bag from our shop in reception so that you can keep your new pet on the same diet it is used to. The food has been specially designed as a complete diet - it has everything they need so there is no need to feed them anything else. The cat, kitten, dog and puppy diets are hypoallergenic also, with no dairy, soya, pork or wheat gluten so if you have a cat or dog with a sensitive tummy or who are prone to skin allergies, this diet may well be suitable for them. You can also buy RSPCA food for your rabbits and guinea pigs too, we are using it at Millbrook and it has gone down rather well! You can find out more information about taking care of your pets on the national RSPCA website and remember, with each bag of food you buy, you help a..

Why a Greyhound?

Why a Greyhound? In the past we have often found that Greyhounds and the similar Lurchers) can be diffcult to home and spend far too long in their kennels, we believe that this is because people do not know enough about them so......... Greyhounds are very gentle, they love a cuddle but don't make a big fuss over it, alot of dogs (Staffies, Labs, Jack Russells included) will jump up and pester you for more, but not the Greyhound, you might get a gentle nudge or a look and if you're lucky they will lean against you showing absolute trust in you They do not need as much exercise as you may think. Yes, Greyhounds are bred to run and chase fake rabbits around a track, but in reality a pet Greyhound only needs a good run twice a day, twenty minutes each time will probably do. They can go for much more, but as long as they can have a quick blast round a park or a field and a bit of a mooch, they are more than likely to chill out for the rest of the day They are good with children. ..

Zulu – dog (3 years old)

NameZulu TypeDog GenderFemale Age3 years old (approx) BreedStaffie ColourBlack Can live withonly pet, Adult home StatusAvailable for adoptionGeneral informationZulu came to Millbrook as she was removed from her previous home because of a welfare concern. She had been bred from and her puppies were very unwell. Sadly, she lost most of her litter except one which came to Millbrook, along with Zulu, and has been rehomed. Zulu is very energetic and quite an anxious girl, we think she has been taught to jump up so we have been doing behaviour work with her and we feel she is now ready for a new home with people who will continue her training. She has been off lead with dogs and can be quite rough, on walks she can be quite vocal towards other dogs, we think because she wants to go over and say hi, but she is unsure around them, so needs ongoing socialisation and will need to be an only dog in the home. She does have her calm moments and enjoys a cuddle or gentle massage. She would enjoy agi..

IKEA Donates Doll Beds to Animal Shelter

Cats at the Etobicoke Humane Society in Ontario used to sleep on the cold, hard floor — that is, until furniture store IKEA stepped in. The company donated 10 doll beds (as well as $300) so the cats have a soft place to rest their heads. "Our floors are easy to clean but not terribly comfortable to lay on. Now cats like Catsby and Frankie have beds of their own to curl up in," the shelter’s Facebook post read. — Read it at Huffington Post Canada
