Hate Crime Awareness Week in #Croydon – 13-20 October 2018

Croydon’s Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018 events for 2018 are being hosted by Croydon Council and Croydon Voluntary Action (CVA).

CVA writes,

“With hate crime on the rise it is a vital time for our borough to be tackling the issue head on and our week-long event programme invites you to do exactly that.

The week comprises of seven thematic discussion panels as well as other activities led by a host of community organisations. Each panel will discuss in depth the nature of hate crime and incidents occurring in the borough through shedding light on community experiences and how residents, the voluntary sector and public organisations are both responding to what is happening on the ground and finding ways to prevent the conditions that give rise to hate crime.”

Dog Awareness event at Park Hill Park – 30 Aug 2018 from 11am-3pm

Croydon Council dog warden service works in close partnership with Dogs Trust to help promote responsible dog ownership.

They are holding a dog awareness event on August 30 in Park Hill Park.

This includes:

*         Free microchipping

*         Free I.D tags

*         Free behavioural and training advice

*         Low cost neutering vouchers

*         Lost dogs advice

*         Free Dog Health Checks

*         Fun Agility

*         Rescue and stray dog adoption information

*         Dogs and the law

*         Advice on dog-related issues within the borough

All people and dogs are welcome!

 

Low-cost neutering scheme

The £35 Neutering scheme continues throughout 2018.

There is a UK wide overpopulation of unwanted dogs and although this is due to a large number of unscrupulous backyard breeders, there are also many owners who would like to have their dog neutered but simply cannot afford it, which leads to accidental litters, continuous straying, dog thefts and unneutered dogs being sold to new owners, antisocial behaviour involving dogs and dangerous dogs.  The hope is that this initiative will help curb these problems.

*Did you know that all dogs must be microchipped by law?
