10 Pet Services The Cost of Caring RSPCA Milton Keynes and North Bucks is a separately registered branch of the National RSPCA and must raise its own funds to support its work in the local community, which is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home stray, injured, abused and unwanted local animals. In 2017: • an incredible 754 cats, small mammals and dogs were rehomed • 382 animals neutered. Without a dedicated animal rehoming centre it is supported by an amazing group of dedicated fosterers who care for the animals in their own homes and volunteers who work tirelessly for the welfare and benefit of the animals. To maintain the current level of animal care it costs: • around £300k per year • annual vet bills are in excess of £140k. RSPCA Milton Keynes and North Bucks relies heavily on the generous financial support of the public and businesses to continue its vital work. Getting the Massage Across Is your dog lame, stiff, or does it need help getting in and out of the car or going up and down the stairs? Is it slowing on a walk or quick to tire? Does it suffer from arthritis or another orthopaedic condition? Is it reluctant to be petted, groomed, or has its behaviour changed? If the answer is yes to any of these, maybe you should consider clinical canine massage. Just like us dogs get strains, trigger points myofascial (muscle-related) pain and will often overcompensate for injury or disease, causing areas of painful tension. Canine massage is a non-invasive, complementary therapy which is naturally effective at reducing pain, improving mobility and working on stiffness. Focusing on the body as a whole, the treatment helps enhance your dog’s quality of life and comfort. If you would like to make a donation, fundraise, foster or rehome a rescue animal please contact us: 01908 611179 rspcamiltonkeynes.co.uk Canine massage is available for any dog, no matter what age, breed, shape or size; it gives results you can see and your dog can feel.
