Animal Welfare League service in Gunnedah this month

10 July, 2024

Animal Welfare League NSW will offer a number of free veterinary services in Gunnedah on Saturday, 27 July.

The Animal Welfare League will be offering the following free services:
• Free health checks for dogs and cats
• Free microchipping for dogs and cats
• Free dog C3 vaccinations
• Limited free cat F3 vaccinations (kittens will be prioritised and adults will be vaccinated at the vet’s discretion due to a shortage in F3 vaccines).

The services will be offered between 8am and 12pm at the Gunnedah Showground South Street on Saturday, 27 July, 2024.

No appointments are required, but cats must be in carriers and dogs must be on leads. There is a maximum of three animals per household and people need to bring a mobile phone to sign in.

Gunnedah Shire Council Acting Manager Community Safety Toby Jaeger said Council encouraged responsible animal ownership as the first and most important step in a happy co-existence with the Shire’s pets.

“Pets that are happy, healthy and kept in accordance with New South Wales regulations are an important part of our lifestyle,” Mr Jaeger said.

“This visit by the Animal Welfare League NSW is a great opportunity to make sure your pet is healthy and to take advantage of the microchipping and vaccination options.

“Under the Companion Animals Act 1998, cats and dogs must be microchipped and registered so they can always be returned home if they are lost, injured or stolen.”
