Pets Day Out fun
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.
