SPCA Tip of the Week 37,
Puppy and Kitten season is now once again upon us and we at the SPCA are seeing more and more unwanted puppies. Please don’t separate a mum and her puppies/kittens before 6 – 8 weeks as they need their mum’s milk for the nutrients, her protection and they are still learning life skills from her. They are too young to be alone before that. Also seriously consider sterilizing your animal to prevent unwanted litters of puppies and kittens. There are planned community spay days coming up and various ways we can assist people in getting this done.
For more information and or advice on animal care, please do not hesitate to contact the Grahamstown SPCA or one of the friendly vets in town.
