Pet owners are being urged to take advantage of significant discounts by desexing and registering their pets as part of the RSPCA's annual promotion Operation Wanted.
Operation Wanted is a joint initiative between councils, local participating veterinary clinics and RSPCA Queensland.
Participating veterinary clinics offer a 20 per cent discount off their usual desexing fee to people who have registered online and received a unique desexing discount code
Bundaberg Regional Council has come on board again to further support the initiative, offering one year of free registration for dogs who are desexed at any of the promotion’s participating vets until August 31.
Portfolio spokesperson Cr Scott Rowleson said animal control was a high priority for Council and encouraged all pet owners to desex, microchip and register their pets.
“To further support the RSPCA promotion, Council is providing one year’s free registration to dogs who are desexed as part of this year’s Operation Wanted,” he said.
“The customer will need to provide evidence that the animal was desexed through one of the participating vets.”
Operation Wanted can benefit for your pet
Cr Rowleson said it was the law to register and microchip your pet and there were many benefits involved.
“Dog registrations are designed to promote responsible dog ownership and also provide safety and security to your dog, you and the community,” he said.
“Registering your dog makes it easier for lost dogs to be reunited with their owners.
“Desexing provides a happier and healthier life for your animal by reducing the number of unwanted litters, reducing aggressive behaviour and health risks.”
The RSPCA promotion runs for three months each year from 1 June to 31 August.
