The licensing outreach programme of the Animal Control Centre will continue in St. Andrew from Monday, May 10 to Friday, May 14, at the Playing Field near the Soil Conservation Unit.
A collaborative effort between the Centre and the Hope Martin Foundation, the programme which runs from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., aims to ensure registration of dogs. It will also provide information on the proper care and treatment of these animals.
The programme is also aimed at continuing the interface at the community level and heightening public awareness about treatment and care of the canine population.
Dog owners from Cane Garden, St. Simons, Haggatts, King Street, Bruce Vale, Lakes, Corbin’s Village, Trio Path, and Boarded Hall are invited to come out and gain information on neutering, spaying, micro-chipping, licensing of kennels and the proper construction of homes for dogs.
The role and function of the Animal Control Centre will also be highlighted and officers will discuss legislation as it relates to the keeping of dogs.
Meanwhile, the Animal Control Centre is also reminding the public that a team will maintain a presence at the Animal Control Centre, 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.
