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.
