TWO of WA’s most loved not-for-profit organisation are coming together this Christmas, selling first aid kits for our pets.

St John Ambulance and RSPCA WA have teamed up for the fundraiser, with $10 from the sale of each pet first aid kit being donated to RSPCA WA.

Paramedic Angela Wright has several horses, including an ex-racehorse she saved from euthanasia, two dogs, one of which she rehomed, and a rescue cat.

Ms Wright said she is passionate about animals and urged people to get behind the RSPCA through the campaign.

“Animals and animal welfare is a big part of my life and I think RSPCA WA does a great job when it comes to looking after sick and injured pets,” she said.

“This initiative is one small way animal lovers can extend their care and support for animals in need.

“It is an opportunity to give these animals a second chance at life with a great new owner.”

Maree Daniels, executive manager for community engagement at RSPCA WA, thanked St John Ambulance for helping the cause.

“We’re very grateful that St John has chosen to donate part proceeds from their pet first aid kits to RSPCA WA,” Ms Daniels said.

“We rely on donations and community support to generate more than 90 per cent of the funds required to sustain our animal protection work, so donations of all sizes are so important to allow us to continue caring for neglected and abandoned animals who need our help.”

The kits sell for $25 each and can be bought from stjohnambulance.com.au or through the St John retail outlet on Lapage Street, Belmont.

The kit includes swabs, dressings, antiseptic wipes, saline and bandages.
