Hedgehog care advice - buy cat food!

It’s that time of year when hedgehogs may well make an appearance in your garden.

Dolittle’s, a non-profitable animal-assisted therapy organisation, is asking members of the public to keep a vigiliant eye open for the nocturnal mammals.

Dolittle’s hand-reared two hoglets (baby hedgehogs) last year at its centre in Silverdale, known as Mr Nozey and Mr Dozey.

Sandy Huyton of Dolittle’s gave advice on what to do if you come across one of these spiky-creatures in need of assistance.

A2B Pet Foods Delivery is an Isle of Man based dedicated home delivery service, offering you access to over 10,000 products. We deliver all your pet’s favourite products right to the door of your home, business or office, saving you time and money. On our blog we share all the Island’s pet welfare news – why not order catfood, cat biscuits or mealworms for your hedgehog today?

‘If any members of the public come across very small hoglets wandering around in the day time then something is seriously wrong. The main reasons for this is their mother, from whom they suckle, has not returned to the nest and they become very hungry and venture out in search of food. This is very dangerous indeed and with no protection whatsoever and with no help they will indeed die.

‘A young hoglet who as yet has no teeth needs human interaction to survive.

‘To hand-rear and help a baby hoglet survive is one of the most humbling experiences ever.’ She advised any attempting to do this that they will need:

1. Syringe feeding very small amounts of kitten milk at room temperature (every two hours) to stop dehydration.

2. Placed in a warm space with a warm hot water bottle to correct their body temperature.

3. Kept away from any predators.

4. When the hoglets grow teeth they can be fed, such things as chicken, cat meat, dried mealworms, hedgehog pellets or cat biscuits and fresh water.

‘Hedgehogs are lactose intolerant and are protein eaters (slugs, snails, worms, beetles etc) and one simple act of changing your slug pellets to child and animal friendly variety can help our island with supporting and protecting our wonderful nocturnal mammals,’ added Sandy.

Hoglets found earlier in the year, between April and June time, can eventually be released back into the wild.

Support grows for petition on animal welfare

Support is growing for a petition calling for the equivalent of the UK’s Animal Welfare Act to be introduced in the island.

Animal lovers, both residents and from further afield, have been adding their names to animal welfare campaigner Roseleen Harrison’s petition since we reported its launch in our sister paper, the Isle of Man Examiner.

And in a bid to reach as many people as possible, paper copies of the petition are being distributed to vets practices across the island.

A2B Pet Foods Delivery is an Isle of Man based dedicated home delivery service, offering you access to over 10,000 products. We deliver all your pet’s favourite products right to the door of your home, business or office, saving you time and money. On our blog we share all the Island’s pet welfare news, for your information.

Roseleen, of Port Erin, explained that the signatures from the online and paper petition will be used to add weight to the petition for redress of grievance in her name, to be presented on Tynwald Day in July.

This petition’s call is that ‘Tynwald bring in legislation equivalent to the UK Animal Welfare Act 2006 and that a select committee be appointed to put together this piece of legislation and that the informal petition stand referred to the select committee as evidence’.

Environment Minister Phil Gawne has agreed in principle to present the petition for redress of grievance on Roseleen’s behalf.

‘I have said I will do anything I can to help and will do everything I can to highlight the issue,’ he said.

The Minister has said it is his department’s intention to bring forward an Animal Welfare Bill in the next few years.

But he added: ‘At the moment it is not seen as a drafting priority.’

The online petition at www.change.org, called ‘Bring in the Animal Welfare Act 2006 to the Isle Of Man’, has more than 570 signatures, and a number of comments.

Chris Cubbon, of Douglas, said: ‘It’s ridiculous there isn’t an Animal Welfare Act already, I just didn’t know.’

Joanna Corlett, of Braddan, said: ‘Wherever the vulnerable are not protected, that society cannot call itself civilized.’

Jon Storey, of Hexham, said: ‘I have found over the years that the Manx are a proud nation, time now to be proud of their animal welfare.’

Last month Roseleen presented Mr Gawne with a petition with almost 1,500 signatures calling for a standard to be created for dog breeders and traders, and more statutory powers to be given to the ManxSPCA.

It was during her research that she discovered ‘a serious lack of legislation to protect our animals’.

She believes the ManxSPCA should have the power to make unannounced inspections where they have concerns.

At the moment, the charity can’t do anything without having a vet or the police there.

Petition calls for Manx law to regulate puppy dealers

Roseleen Harrison with her dogs in Port Erin

 

An animal rights campaigner is to present a petition on Tynwald Day calling for the Isle of Man to improve animal welfare by law.

Port Erin resident Roseleen Harrison has already presented Phil Gawne MHK, the Environment and Agriculture Minister, with an online petition with almost 1,500 signatures calling for a standard to be created for dog breeders and traders, and more statutory powers to be given to the Manx Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

She has now launched a new petition – to be presented on Tynwald Day – calling for the equivalent of the UK’s Animal Welfare Act 2006 to be introduced in the island.

A2B Pet Foods Delivery is an Isle of Man based dedicated home delivery service, offering you access to over 10,000 products. We deliver all your pet’s favourite products right to the door of your home, business or office, saving you time and money. On our blog we share all the Island’s pet welfare news, for your information.

However, Mr Gawne has told the Examiner that such a law was not a priority.

‘Without clear legislation and legal backing the welfare and safety of all animals on the island are at risk,’ Roseleen said.

‘This legislation would significantly help to hold puppy dealers accountable for their actions, and to make sure they are given fines, banned from keeping animals or even prison time in extreme cases.

‘With all organisations, you are governed by laws and regulations. Without an Animal Welfare Act allowing the ManxSPCA to intervene where they themselves see fit they have to continually educate the person, and agonisingly watch the situation, when all they want to do is to seize the animals and give them the care and attention they need.

‘The ManxSPCA is a wonderful organisation that desperately wants to do more. They see the abuse regularly as they are on the frontline, but are unable to do any more without legislation and legal rights.’

Roseleen started campaigning following reports of farmed puppies being brought into the island from Europe.

She described puppy farms as breeding facilities designed to maximise profits and often disregard the physical, social, and emotional health of dogs.

It was during her research that she discovered ‘a serious lack of legislation to protect our animals’.

High on her list of priorities is make it part of the government’s registered dog breeder requirements for breeders to enter into a contract with the buyer.

Under the contract, the buyer would agree to have the puppy neutered unless they were going to become a registered breeder themselves.

If the buyer breached the contract the breeder would then have grounds to take legal action.

‘This in itself would go a long way to stop irresponsible people breeding purely-for-profit puppies,’ Roseleen said.

In addition, she wants the ManxSPCA to be empowered to make unannounced inspections where they have concerns.

At the moment, the charity can’t do anything without having a vet or the police there.

The charity’s Margaret Mansfield said: ‘We will support Roseleen with her petition as much as we possibly can.

‘Any further powers that we can be given to ensure the welfare of animals would be great.’

Roseleen urged people in the island to contact their MHKs to tell them animal welfare was a priority.

And she called for people interested in getting a puppy to support the island’s many good breeders.

‘If it doesn’t seem right or you are worried for the welfare of the animals, walk away and contact the ManxSPCA straight away,’ she said.

Mr Gawne said: ‘We want to bring an Animal Welfare Bill forward in the next few years.

‘At the moment it is seen as a drafting priority, there are lots of Bills on our legislative programme.

‘If and when sufficient numbers of people start calling for the Bill, maybe we would be able to look more closely at it.’

It is hoped that paper copies of the petition will be distributed soon. Alternatively view and sign the ‘Bring in the Animal Welfare Act 2006 to the Isle of Man’ petition at www.change.org
