Jasmine, Jack, Jonny, Jacob and Jenson will be ready to find paw-fect new homes at the beginning of 202
Five adorable, playful and mischievous puppies have been keeping RSPCA staff busy over the Christmas holiday.
Six-week-old Staffie cross pups Jasmine, Jack, Jonny, and Jenson arrived at the RSPCA’s Millbrook Animal Centre, in Chobham, Surrey, on 11 December.
They were signed over into the charity’s care after their owners - who hadn’t planned a litter - were struggling to cope.
Staff have been busy weaning the puppies and feeding them, playing with them and beginning to teach them important life lessons like how to socialise and getting them used to people.
Deputy manager Liz Wood said: “The pups are utterly adorable and we’re all in love with them. We have seven puppies with us at the moment - the five Staffies and two lurchers called Holly and Ivy - so they’ve all been keeping us very busy.
“They’ll be ready to find new homes soon and we’re sure we’ll be inundated with offers. However, we’d like urge families to really think about the commitment and responsibility of taking on a puppy before they send us an application.
“Puppies need a lot of time and can be extremely expensive. The whole family needs to be fully invested to ensure the puppy grows up into a healthy and happy dog - and companion.”
The puppies aren’t yet ready for new homes so please don’t contact the centre to enquire about them. Please keep an eye on the centre’s website and on www.rspca.org.uk/findapet to find out when they’ll be available and when they’re accepting applications.
Help the RSPCA this winter
It costs around £670,000 to run an RSPCA centre for a year. You can make a generous donation to Stock the Sleigh and help animals in our care:
• £7 could keep an animal warm with a soft and cosy blanket;
• £15 could give the gift of comfort - a warm blanket, treats and toys;
• £25 could give the gift of safety - to help answer a phone call, provide a safe bed and food;
• £40 could give the gift of care - providing essential veterinary care and medicines.
This winter, the RSPCA expects to take in more than 10,000 animals in need across England & Wales. To help us deliver vital supplies to thousands of abused, neglected and abandoned animals left out in the cold this Christmas, visit www.rspca.org.uk/giftofkindness and help Stock the Sleigh.
