Animal lovers needed to help at local shelter

Happy Paws Haven urgently needs more volunteers who love animals.

Happy Paws Haven's Sally Rogers said she needed help with the dogs nearly every day, and if there was anyone who could help it would be "wonderful".

"There is Cathy and I doing the cats, I will do the kittens, or if you prefer cats, you could help Cathy and I will do the dogs, whichever suits," she said.

"Please come and help us as we need more volunteers, even if is only 2-3 hours once a week, a fortnight or a month. The more we have, the more fun everyone has, no-one gets tired and the load is spread. Cuddles are compulsory."

She said they also needed help to deflea and worm the cats and kittens.

"We use Profender and Advantage, both are spot-ons so we don't try to put a tablet down their throats," she said.

"For cats we do this every six weeks, kittens we do monthly and babies every two weeks with Felix paste and Frontline spray monthly."

Sally said there was an ongoing requirement for regular volunteers

"We have lost a few due to ill health and people moving away," she said.

Happy Paws Haven also needs people to help clean the cat enclosures and it has vacancies for helpers nearly every day of the week, including weekends.

It also needs maintenance volunteers to distribute wood mulch into the dog pens and assist in building and grounds maintenance activities.

She said they also urgently needed handymen to do kennel modification and maintenance.

"We have the materials, we just need the manpower to get the job done," Sally said.
