Council makes pet microchipping too easy
Council is launching a microchipping bonanza for pets, offering to microchip dogs and cats at heavily discounted prices across Sunshine Coast parks from now until May.
Microchipping days kick off on Monday 22 February at La Balsa off leash dog park and then continue in February, April and May.
Council's Response Services Manager, Ron Thomas, said the move was part of council's educational approach to encouraging responsible pet ownership across the region.
"Council is offering to microchip pets at the heavily discounted rate of $25 for a cat or dog," Mr Thomas said.
"Microchipping is the most effective way to identify a cat or dog if they are lost or stolen, so I encourage all pet owners to take up this offer if their pets are not yet microchipped."
Buderim, Coolum, Woombye, Kenilworth, Eumundi and Glasshouse Mountains are just some of the areas where microchipping days will be run in public parks from 10am till 2pm.
Mr Thomas said council is partnering with Microchips Australia to deliver the program as a community service.
"Pet owners who microchip their dog or cat will also get a nice surprise when they register their pets with council," Mr Thomas said.
"Registration fees are greatly reduced for de-sexed and microchipped dogs in order to reward responsible owners."
Under the State Animal Management (Cats and Dogs) Act 2008, which came into effect in July 2009, all owners must register their cats and dogs with council every year.
