Our popular Facebook page has grown from strength to strength over the last couple of years, attracting both local and national attention. We use our platform to help educate pet owners about caring for their animals and run a number of campaigns throughout the year, which highlight seasonal issues such as grass seeds, adder bites and the dangers of Christmas decorations. Our social media profiles enable members of the local community to share information about their lost pets, which has helped reunite missing animals with their owners.
