It can be very exciting when visiting an animal shelter. As animal lovers, we want to embrace all the animals and show them love and compassion but it is important we practice safety when visiting the shelter. You may have had many animals over the course of your lifetime and or worked in a shelter before but we must be careful around the animals. Yes, for your safety, but for theirs as well. Some animals are skittish and get scared easily, some may come from an abusive home, and some may not have had any type of training.
Here are a few safety tips to keep in mind while visiting the SPCA:
⇨ Do not bang on windows or doors or rattle cages.
⇨ Do not yell or be aggressive.
⇨ Do not feed the animals unless permission is given. Some animals have dietary issues.
⇨ Do not walk quickly upon an animal.
⇨ Do not put your face in front of an animal.
⇨ If doors are closed and animals are in cages, there is a reason for it.
⇨ Do not poke your fingers or hands in through the cages.
Many times we get asked what can someone in the community do to help the shelter. There are so many ways and a lot of them don’t even cost money.
➠ Gather up all your newspapers for the cats
➠ Ask your family and friends to keep all their old blankets and towels
➠ Re-gift any presents they were given to you and you didn’t want. (it must never be opened or used)
➠ Do some Spring cleaning and donate all the items they no longer need (they must work and be clean please)
➠ Save their recyclables. (either donate them directly at the Green Depot or drop off clean ones at the shelter)
➠ Keep a little jar on your table for spare change.
➠ You can also put Canadian Tire money into that jar as well.
Do you have any other idea on how you and your family can help? Let us know on facebook.
Have you taken down your Christmas decorations yet? If you have Christmas items you do not want anymore or if you change your decor from year to year, why not donate those unwanted items to the Burin SPCA. We use these items for our flea market. We accept all Christmas items as long as they are not broken and in good working order. Drop off your used items at the Burin SPCA between 12-2 daily. Thank you.
