Fingal Valley Neighbourhood House – 15 November 2020 at 10 am

RSPCA Tasmania is partnering with former CEO, Dr Andrew Byrne and well-known vet, Dr Peter De Boer, to bring discounted microchipping to the Fingal Valley. We recognise vet services are restricted in rural areas and for that reason are setting up at the Fingal Valley Neighbourhood House, to assist the people in the region.

With changes to the Cat Management Act imminent, we are preparing for legislative requirements to microchip all cats, with dogs already requiring microchips. Guinea pigs and rabbits are increasingly being microchipped too, as people with companion animals realise that the best way to be reunited with an wandering animal is to be able to easily identify it.

Dr Byrne and RSPCA staff will be there to answer questions on the safe and humane care for companion animals and to assist with applications for desex surgeries, through our Centrepay and Open Pay programs.

An Inspector from RSPCA Tasmania will also be in attendance to answer any questions community members may have. We are committed to increasing community awareness of responsible pet ownership and animal welfare in Tasmania.
