The cat killer – info, reward for info and what you can do to help

When the injuries and killings of cats originally came to light through the work of SNARL, much of the activity appeared to relate to the Croydon and M25 area. Since then, more reports have come in, both new and historic, including rabbits and foxes as well as cats and over a far wider area.

What can you do?

  • Please help by spreading the word so more people are aware.
  • Keep small animals in wherever possible, and ensure cats are called in and kept in at night.

 

 

  • REPORT anything suspicious to SNARL and to the Police. It is vital that the evidence is preserved.
  • And if you see anyone with a bladed instrument or suspect that a crime is in progress, please call 999.

The following advice is given by SNARL, the South Norwood Animal Rescue and Liberty group, who have campaigned hard to get the information out and to get the police to take action. Screen Shot 2016-01-28 at 17.25.07

Slashed neck/ decapitation and/or

Please:

2. Report the finding to the police either by calling 999 if they are at the scene or 101 if it is some time since they saw/ found the body/ parts.

It is ABSOLUTELY VITAL that the body/parts are safeguarded and SNARL will come out, even if it is after hours to collect any body or body parts for examination by the vet working on this case.

If the animal is still alive please take him or her straight to the vet for treatment and call us as soon as you can afterwards.

If you see anyone behaving suspiciously, particularly if they are carrying a knife or bladed weapon, please call 999 (this advice comes directly from the police) immediately.

Cut price dog neutering scheme for Croydon residents – Just 50 vouchers available

Croydon Council’s Dog Warden Service works in partnership with Dogs Trust to promote responsible dog ownership.

Following on from the success of the project at Christmas, their latest project is a ‘£35 Neutering’ initiative which runs throughout the whole of 2017. There are 50 low-cost neutering vouchers for selected breeds, allowing owners who are on benefits or a low income and living in a Croydon postcode to get their dog neutered for just £35 at any one of a number of participating vets. The procedure normally costs between £200- £500, depending on the size of the dog, so this is a huge saving.

There is a UK-wide overpopulation of unwanted dogs. Although this is due to a large number of unscrupulous backyard breeders, there are also many owners who would like to have their dog neutered but simply cannot afford it.  Not having dogs neutered can lead to issues such as accidental litters, continuous straying, dog thefts and unneutered dogs being sold to new owners, antisocial behaviour involving dogs.screen-shot-2017-03-01-at-13-12-35

Dogs Trust – Neuter your dog for Christmas – reduced price voucher for bull breeds throughout December 2016

screen-shot-2016-11-21-at-18-22-55

Croydon Council’s Dog Warden Service works in partnership with Dogs Trust to promote responsible dog ownership.

Their latest festive project is the ‘Neuter your Bull Breed for Christmas’ initiative. There will be 500 low-cost neutering vouchers available as part of the initiative, allowing owners of bull breeds living in a Croydon postcode to get their dog neutered for just £35 at any one of the participating vets. This procedure normally costs between £200- £500, depending on the size of the dog, so this is a huge saving!

Dog Warden, Tara Boswell says,

There is a UK-wide overpopulation of bull breeds and around 75% of the strays I collect in our borough are bull breed type dogs.  Although this is mainly due to a large number of unscrupulous backyard breeders, there are also many owners who would like to have their dog neutered but simply cannot afford it. Not neutering your dog can lead to accidental litters, continuous straying, dog thefts ans unneutered dogs being sold to new owners, antisocial behaviour involving dogs and dangerous dogs.

I hope this initiative will help curb these problems.

Owners will have until January 31, 2017  to redeem their voucher.

I will also be monitoring our stray puppy intake over the Christmas and New Year period to see if this has any effect on our stray numbers.
