The programme to license dogs in the parish of St. Andrew will continue next week from Tuesday, May 25 to Friday, May 28, at the junction of Babylon and Walkers, St. Andrew.
A collaborative effort between the Animal Control Centre and the Hope Martin Foundation, it will run from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Aimed at continuing the interface at the community level, it is also intended to ensure registration and heighten awareness about treatment and care of the canine population.
Dog owners from Babylon, Walkers, Bawdens and Rock Hall are encouraged to come out and gain information about neutering, spaying, micro-chipping, licensing of kennels and the proper construction of dog houses.
The role and function of the Animal Control Centre will also be highlighted and officers will discuss legislation as it relates to the keeping dogs.
Meanwhile, the Animal Control Centre is reminding the public that a team will maintain a presence at their headquarters, the Lazaretto Compound, Lower Black Rock, St. Michael, at the St. Philip Polyclinic and the Maurice Byer Polyclinic in St. Peter, to facilitate the regular licensing and surrendering of dogs during that week.
