Desexpo

Cat and Dog desexing RSVPs for June and July 2014 being taken now.

Desexpo kicks off from 1 June 2014 until 31 July 2014. Every responsible pet owner that takes advantage of this offer will go into the draw to win a fabulous prize for themselves and their pet.

  • This desexing initiative is aimed at reducing the number of unwanted cats and dogs in our community. 
  • Desexing prevents pets from roaming, fighting or causing nuisance to neighbours
  • Cats and dogs are less likely to develop certain anti-social behaviours and usually become more affectionate when de-sexed
  • Desexing also reduces the risk of your pet getting cancer or other diseases of the reproductive organs
  • It is now mandatory in Logan under Local Law No. 4 and Subordinate Local Law No. 4.1 (Animal Management) 2002 for cats to be desexed unless you are a Council registered breeder
  • Bonus - it's cheaper to register a desexed animal

Mention this promotion and receive a free microchip supplied by Logan City Council for every cat and dog desexed at participating Logan City vets during June and July 2014* - plus a free nail trim for dogs.

For bookings phone your local participating vet or 3209 3220 for the Combined Vets of Logan City Community Desexing and Microchip Clinic located at the Animal Management Centre.

Pet of the week - Greg

Pet of the Week

Hi, my name is Greg and I am a one year old Labrador mix.

I am a very playful boy who loves to be outdoors exploring my surroundings. I am very excited when I see my furry friends to on long walks and can't wait for my turn. When I see new people I love to play and be the centre of attention.

I am currently being fostered over the weekends and love nothing more than lazing in the warm sunshine on these cold days. I enjoy playing with my foster family and the children are so much fun. I hope my new family loves being active like me and is willing to take me to fun places I can discover. 

I would make a great new addition to a family with older children, as I can be a little boisterous at times. I would love to learn new things and would benefit from further training. This would be a great opportunity to allow my social personality to shine and be exciting to play with other furry friends.

I come vaccinated, desexed, microchipped and registered as all good dogs should. I am ready and waiting to meet a loving forever family. I also get to take home a fabulous KONG chew toy, which is enjoyable for me to play with at home.

To adopt Greg or view any of our other sale animals, visit the the Animal Management Centre or view other dogs for sale.
