A dog-awareness morning is being hosted by Croydon Council at King George’s Field, Gloucester Road, on Thursday 19 January.
The early morning event, from 8-10am, will give dog owners the chance to meet the council’s dog warden and neighbourhood safety officers, and seek advice on a wide range of topics.
This includes behaviour concerns, dog-related legislation, lost-dog advice and rescue-dog adoption.
Free microchipping, ID tags, low-cost neutering vouchers, and behaviour and training advice will be available on site.
Councillor Hamida Ali, cabinet member for communities, safety and justice
“I would really encourage dog owners to come along and take advantage of the advice and expertise on offer.
“Over the years, Croydon has microchipped hundreds of dogs, and last year rehomed 140 unwanted pets.”
The council works closely with Dogs Trust to provide low-cost neutering for dog owners within the borough throughout the year.
