Western Downs Regional Council are helping to give unwanted and unclaimed pound pets their best chance at adoption and finding their new forever home.

Council Spokesperson for Planning and Environment Councillor Andrew Smith said anyone who adopts a pet from Council’s pounds will have their new companion desexed for free.

“Many of the cats and dogs brought into our pounds are loving, friendly and well-tempered animals who deserve nothing more than a second chance at finding their new forever home,” he said.

“Even though we microchip our adopted pound pets, more often than not animals that come into the pound aren’t desexed, which can be a major hurdle for people wanting to adopt.

“So, for a limited time anyone who adopts a pet from our pounds in Chinchilla and Dalby will have their new four-legged friend desexed for free.

“The easier we can make it for our customers to adopt from our pounds the better chance we have of giving our pound pets a chance at finding their new home.”

Keep an eye out for our Pound Pets of the week in the Chinchilla News and Dalby Herald, or call 1300 COUNCIL to find out more on our Pound Pets desexing initiative.
