Helping with responsible pet ownership in Gunnedah Shire

22 March, 2024

Gunnedah Shire Council’s Community Safety Team will visit shire villages and localities to provide responsible pet ownership advice during the next few months.

Through the Paws Up program, Compliance Officers will offer free checks on microchipped animals to ensure the Companion Animal Register is updated, process companion animal registrations and identify companion animals though microchipping.

Fees and charges may apply for applicable services such as registration and identification.

Manager Community Safety Wade Berryman encouraged local pet owners to take advantage of the popular annual initiative.

“Responsible pet ownership is hugely important for the wellbeing of animals and residents who live together in our community and this service is a great opportunity to get registration and identification of pets in order,” he said.

Scheduled visits will take place on:

Friday 12 April 10am to 12 noon at Tamba Park, Tamba St, Tambar Springs.
Friday 12 April 1.30 to 3.30pm at Mullaley Park, Oxley Highway, Mullaley.

Thursday 30 April 10am to 11am at Breeza Park, Kamilaroi Hwy, Breeza.
Thursday 30 April 1pm to 3.00pm at Carroll Park, David St, Carroll.

Thursday 13 June 10am to 12 noon at Hamilton Park, Goran St, Curlewis.
