THE RSPCA is holding a free Community Action Day for Ellenbrook locals today.
Through Community Action Days, RSPCA WA aims to share information and provide help to the community with common pet issues like fleas, worms, ticks, fly bitten ears and mange, as well as assisting pet owners to understand basic animal need requirements.
Education coordinator Nat Foster said the RSPCA was committed to raising pet owners’ awareness to understand and meet the best care standards for their animals.
“We understand the friendship and value that a pet can bring into a person’s life and how important that bond is,” Ms Foster said.
“Regular vet checks and vaccinations, as well as consistent care, exercise and enrichment are all important in ensuring a healthy, meaningful and long lasting companionship.
“We have organised Community Action Days in both regional and metropolitan areas and they have all proven popular, which is why we’re focused on rolling out more.”
Community members can talk to RSPCA inspectors about any concerns relating to cruelty in their local area.
Donated pet food available for families in need, as well as free veterinary consultations and advice from South Metropolitan TAFE will be available.
Flea and worming treatments, other giveaways and a sausage sizzle will also be on hand.
“We rely on the community’s support for our activities and programs, which are all firmly focused on working in the community to prevent animal cruelty wherever it happens,” Ms Foster said.
The Community Action Day is today from 2pm until 4pm at Charlottes Vineyard Pavilion, Haberton Parkway Ellenbrook.
