RSPCA WA is offering free vet checks for local pets in need on August 15.

The Community Action Day at Anthony Waring Park in Clarkson is for local residents who might be experiencing financial difficulty and struggling to care for their pets.

Sponsored by the City of Wanneroo, the event will run from 12.30pm to 3pm with residents able to talk to vets, vet nurses and students from South Metropolitan Tafe about any concerns they might have for their pets.

Donated food and free treatments for fleas, ticks and worms will also available as well as free microchipping if needed (excluding litters).

“These free events are a vital service for people who may be struggling to look after their pets and we want to let those people know that we’re here to help,” RSPCA WA community outreach co-ordinator Nat Foster said.

“At RSPCA WA, we understand the friendship and value that a pet can bring into a person’s life and how important that bond is.

“We also want to know of any animal welfare or cruelty concerns in the local area.”

Dogs must be socialised, vaccinated and on a leash at all times.
