Slick is back!

Slick is great at "drop", good dog!

Although only for a day, Slick and his new owner, Emily, came down to visit Education Team members, Claire and Eva, at the St Francis Church 'Blessing of the Animals' day on Saturday. It was fantastic to be able to draw attention to what makes us happy at the RSPCA: great dog + great owner = perfect match! The Team also used the opportunity to show the public that these animals are often well-socialised, well-trained animals who were just unlucky with their previous owners and are just looking for a fresh start!

The life-size egg-laying chickens made an appearance with many people shocked to see how little room the legal minimum cage size afforded the chickens. With so many barn-laid and free range egg options now available, it is not a difficult decision. One of the chickens were blessed by the Franciscan Friars, and we hope this is a sign of better times ahead for our clucky friends.

Bring on the questions!

Perfect manners!


Slick is a always happy to socialise with anyone!
