The national organisation for the welfare of animals has returned to the Mid-Western region with the relaunch of the RSPCA volunteer branch.

A new executive committee was elected at the recent annual general meeting, and incoming president Adele Lindley is excited about her new role with the organisation.

“We are all keen to fly the flag for RSPCA in Mudgee again and are working towards building up our funds for our desexing financial assistance program,” she said.

The first event planned is a vaccination and micro-chipping day on October 28.

“A team from RSPCA NSW, along with local vets, vet nurses and Mudgee Council staff will be at Mudgee Vet Hospital on Market Street from 10am to 1pm offering discounted vaccinations and microchipping to pension and concession card holders,” Adele said.

“$10 will protect your beloved pooch or cat from deadly diseases such as parvo, and also have them chipped to help them find their way back to you if they are ever lost.”

Adele explained the branch is also looking to recruit new volunteers, “if we can get more onboard, we can get other exciting activities happening in the future.”
