The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil hosted its 2017 Pets Day Out for res­i­dents of the coun­cil area on Satur­day and or­gan­is­ers are cel­e­brat­ing the event’s suc­cess.

Res­i­dents were able to book in for free de­sex­ing and have their pet reg­is­tered and mi­crochipped on the day.

With more than 200 peo­ple at­tend­ing, coun­cil pro­cessed 35 pet reg­is­tra­tions and 29 mi­crochip­pings.

Fed­er­a­tion Ve­teri­nary Hos­pi­tal and Corowa Ve­teri­nary Clinic also booked 22 pets in for their free de-sex­ing ap­point­ment.

Not only was the day a huge suc­cess in num­bers, pets of all ages and sizes were on their best be­hav­iour for their own­ers, some even mak­ing new friends.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil Man­ager of Parks and Fa­cil­i­ties David Car­roll said he was pleased with the com­mu­nity’s en­thu­si­asm and pos­i­tive feed­back on the day.

“Ev­ery­one was re­ally pa­tient with the pa­per­work process and pro­vided us with some great feed­back re­gard­ing the ini­tia­tive,” Mr Car­roll said.

The Pet Parade for Best Dressed, Best Pet Hair Style, Best Pa­raded and the Look-a-Like com­pe­ti­tion was a great way to end the day with all of the en­trants tak­ing home a prize.

Coun­cil thanked the NSW Of­fice of Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment for sup­port­ing the pro­mo­tion of re­spon­si­ble pet ownership, as well as Corowa Ve­teri­nary Clinic, Fed­er­a­tion Ve­teri­nary Hos­pi­tal, RSPCA, Cool Off How­long (Dried and True), Happy Tailz Dog Groom­ing, Corowa Girl Guides and Dinga-ling Faces.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s Pets Day Out proved to be pop­u­lar event with many res­i­dents and their four­legged com­pan­ions at­tend­ing.

Faith and Basil pic­tured get­ting ready for the Pet Parade.
