Barking mad fun at the dog show

Goole and District RSPCA Dog Show made for a barking mad day on Saturday 18th of June at West Park, Goole. Various stalls, a dog agility course, bouncy castle and a model train ride provided lots of fun for all the family. Over a hundred dogs competed in fun classes from Best Child Handler to Best Six Legs. £991.59 was raised for the branch on the day with more donations from stalls coming in.

Press Officer Georgina Petty said "Whether your prized pooch was prettiest eyes or you tried your luck on a tombola, every penny spent will go towards lending a paw to local animals in need" "A big thank you to Cllr Ian Blackburn for compering the event, all the hard working volunteers, Peppers Marquees, Royal Canin for prizes, all our judges, stallholders and of course the dapper dogs and their four legged friends for an entertaining afternoon!"

Lending A Paw To Cats In Crisis

Goole RSPCA lent a paw to credit crunched cats and their penny pinched owners on Saturday 11th June with the Cat Action Day at Trinity Church in Goole. 69 cats (39 females and 30 males) got their paws on purrfect discounted offers.



34 cats were ID chipped on the day, 25 neutering vouchers were issued thanks to the branch and Cats Protection, 63 cats took advantage of the free vet check by Vermuyden Vets and received free flea and worm treatment.

Press Officer and Secretary Georgina said "Thank you to all our tireless volunteers, Vermuyden Vets, Trinity Church and everyone who supported the event. We swapped unsuitable collars for brand new safety ones, gave out lots of advice and leaflets so it was a great day for preventing cruelty and promoting kindness in the area"

" We are extremely busy with kitten season so we are particularly pleased that owners have come forward and agreed that it is nicer to neuter!"

Lots of events leaflets distributed, gave advice about dog, cat and rabbit care, selling colourful dog collars and Goole RSPCA logo goods. Total raised from collections and sales of goods was £78.54.

Cats In Crisis – Can You Lend A Paw?

We are looking for a purr-fectly patient, experienced cat lover who has the time and energy to give special adult cats the chance to find a forever home by becoming a cat fosterer.
Goole and District R.S.P.C.A work closely with the national inspectorate to lend a paw to cats in crisis. Be part of a dedicated branch of volunteers looking to prevent cruelty and promote kindness in the Goole and District area. This is a special role that requires a lot of time, dedication and perseverance as caring for our character cats can be challenging. Some cats need medication and monitoring, others require a lot of hands on socialisation. Every cat is different.
Goole and District RSPCA rely on our fosterers to help the re-homing team assess the purr-fect match for a forever home, so your input is vital in getting your foster friend the happy ending they deserve. The branch are looking for people who live in the Goole or DN14 area with transport to take their foster cats to the vets used by the RSPCA and pick up supplies provided by the branch.
Many different people come forward looking for a forever friend including people with young children so it is essential potential fosterers are able to be flexible, open minded and don’t mind welcoming visitors to the home. A trial period will help you and the branch get to know one another. Training, support with filling out forms and fostering expenses will be covered by the branch but the contribution you will make towards animal welfare in your local area will be priceless.

Any interested individuals can contact Patrick 07599087527for further information.
