Caara Lydick and Luna the Bichon enjoyed RSPCA WA’s Community Action Day in Armadale last week.

RSPCA WA has declared last week’s Community Action Day in Armadale a resounding success with more than 100 locals attending the free event.

Thankfully the skies stayed clear so visitors and their dogs could enjoy some sunshine while they accessed the products and services on offer at Gwynne Park.

A total of 66 health checks were performed by the vet team, with 16 cases referred to South Metro TAFE student clinic for discounted vet treatment.

A further 28 microchips were implanted and registered and a whopping 214.7 kgs of pet food and 130 packs of parasite prevention was given away.

A wide range of free leads, collars, harnesses, jackets and beds were available to keep pets safe and warm during the winter months and the free sausage sizzle was very popular too.

“It was wonderful to help so many pet owners from the local community who need some extra help in these difficult times,” organisers said.

“We could not have done this without our amazing volunteers and partners.

“A massive thanks to the City of Armadale, Elanco, Petbarn and Rogz pet gear for their support.

“We also want to give a big thank you to the South Metropolitan TAFE vet nursing students and Vetwest Armadale who helped make this day possible.”
