Baby Socks Appeal

Published: 05/02/2020 By Allan Fuller

Baby Socks appeal 

RSPCA Putney Hospital launche appeal for baby socks for animals recovering from operations Using tiny socks on animals paws can help them stay warm as they recover from anaesthetic as they lose a lot of heat through their pads. All animals can benefit from this including dogs and even rabbits. The hospital have even used socks to make little jumpsuits for tiny orphaned kittens as hand-reared kittens can sometimes try to suckle on each other which can lead to soreness.

Emma Turner, ward supervisor at Putney, said: “We are running low on baby socks for the animals here and would be very grateful for any spares people may have at home. Any keen knitters out there can help as knitted socks are great too. We can use socks for all sorts of purposes - to help animals retain heat as they come round from operations and we have even turned them into little jumpers for our tiny orphaned kittens.” 

If you can help please send or drop off to Putney Animal Hospital, 6 Clarendon Drive, SW15 1AA.
