Community Captains visit RSPCA Dakabin

Last week we went to the RSPCA at Dakabin before morning tea. In the reception we met our guide and saw half a dozen cats in their tiny "houses". Our guide led us through a hall that was full of cupboard sized enclosures with at least 4 cats in each. Down the hall there was a path that led outside into an area full of dog pens. Some of the dogs were enthusiastic to see us, but others barked like crazy. The guide showed us some big grassy areas which were meant for the dogs so they could get some exercise. Then we turned around and went back to the main building. Instead of going down the cat hall, we walked through a door to the animal hospital. I had a quick peek at the hospital,then we walked through the back area. Then we realised that the cat enclosures had little flaps that led to a sleeping/relaxing area. When we arrived we had a photo taken with the staff and asked them some questions. Overall, it was a great experience.
