RSPCA plea to flea for free

DOG and cat owners are being invited to take part in the RSPCA’s flea for free weekend.

On Saturday March 26 and Sunday March 27, complimentary flea treatments will be available for pets at the animal centre in Wade Street, Halifax.

Microchipping can also be carried out at a discounted price of £8 and worming treatments will also be on offer.

Julie Cockcroft, centre manager, said: “Parasites can be painful and uncomfortable and make an animal’s life miserable so we are really happy that we can offer this weekend to all pet owners.

“We look forward to meeting you and your pets.”

Appointments must be made in advance by contacting 01422 365628.

All dogs must be on a lead and cats must be contained in a secure basket.
