Dog's Breakfast a treat for pets
FURRY residents in the City of Wanneroo will be lapping up attention at the annual Dog’s Breakfast this month.
The canine-friendly event will return to Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex in Madeley on October 21, offering a variety of activities, exhibits, competitions, workshops, entertainment and giveaways.
Some of the highlights will include free vet checks, a pooch-friendly photo booth, dog training, an animal kinesiology Q&A, onsite micro-chipping and children’s activities.
Mayor Tracey Roberts said rangers would also be on site to answer questions and accept dog registrations.
“Dog’s Breakfast brings the whole family together for a day of fun and pet pampering,” she said.
With annual pet registration renewals expiring on October 31 and residents expected to receive reminder notices this month, Mrs Roberts urged people to take up lifetime registrations for dogs and cats.
She said it was a “cost effective” option that reduced the risk of expired registrations.
The annual registration fee for an unsterilised dog is $50 per year compared to $250 for lifetime, while a sterilised cat costs $20 a year or $100 for a lifetime.
