The Animal Control Centre will continue its week-long licensing outreach programme from Monday, May 17 to Friday, May 21, at Belleplaine Playing Field, St. Andrew.
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 and provide information on the proper care and treatment of these animals.
It 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 Belleplaine, Jordan Road, Worrell Road, Belmont Road, Franklyn/Doughlin Road, Boy School Road, Redmans Road, Isolation Road and East Coast Road are urged to come out and gain information on neutering, spaying, micro-chipping, licensing of kennels and the correct-way to construct 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 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.
