Open Day fun for pets, plants and peo­ple

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - News -

Around 500 peo­ple came along to the Hawkes­bury Com­mu­nity Nurs­ery and Hawkes­bury Com­pan­ion An­i­mal Shel­ter Open Day at Mul­grave on Sat­ur­day, 29 July, which was held to launch Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Week in the Hawkes­bury. Ap­prox­i­mately 800 plants were given away and three an­i­mals had names placed on them for adop­tion while res­i­dents with new pets took ad­van­tage of the free mi­crochip­ping, sav­ing $53 per pet. Some dogs were also lucky enough to en­joy the mo­bile dog wash on the day.

Crowds also gath­ered for the Aus­tralian Work­ing Dog Res­cue demon­stra­tions, and a BBQ that even in­cluded sausages for dogs. Many peo­ple with ex-shel­ter pets also came along to share sto­ries of their new lives while others took the op­por­tu­nity to visit the Hawkes­bury Com­mu­nity Nurs­ery and re­ceive their free plants.

Dur­ing Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Week, Coun­cil is ask­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers to make some im­por­tant de­ci­sions about fund­ing op­tions to help to meet com­mu­nity ex­pec­ta­tions for as­set ser­vice lev­els in the fu­ture. The full pro­gram is avail­able at www. hawkes­
