The City of Subiaco is partnering with the Cat Haven and Dogs’ Refuge Home to help educate local pet owners on the benefits of desexing their pets.
City rangers and Cat Haven and Dogs’ Home Refuge volunteers will be at the Subi Farmers Market on Saturday 31 August to help market-goers better understand the requirements and responsibilities surrounding desexing pets, as well as exploring the benefits this brings to them and the community.
According to City of Subiaco Senior Ranger Charles Smith, desexing pets not only helps to reduce the number of abandoned or homeless animals but it can help them live longer, healthier lives.
He said desexed pets are less prone to aggressive behaviour and health problems such as uterine infections, testicular cancer and breast tumours.
Not only does a healthier pet mean less vet bills, but desexing also eliminates the cost of unwanted puppies or kittens and means you receive a discounted rate when registering your pet with the City.
To find out more about the benefits of desexing your pets and be in the chance to win some great prizes, visit the Subi Farmers Markets on Saturday 31 August between 8am and 12pm.
The Subi Farmers Markets are held at Subiaco Primary School, 271 Bagot Road, Subiaco.
