A new grassroots campaign to help dog owners with their legal obligations for their furry friends is set to be unleashed by Isaac Regional Council today.
The Paws-itive Blueprint for Responsible Dog Ownership is in response to the community’s concerns on dog control management in the region.
Mayor Anne Baker said there’s no doubt Isaac residents love their dogs – they at times provide us protection, friendship, therapy, exercise and most of all unconditional love.
“The Paws-itive Blueprint campaign features three characters – Mary Puppins, Sherlock Bones and Bark Vader – and they will assist in reminding residents in their obligations, community safety and animal welfare,” she said.
“This tongue-in-cheek approach is about community education and teaching the basics about responsible dog ownership.
“This has been developed following the Council’s formation of the Domestic Dog Advisory Committee which will assist in promoting responsible dog ownership including registration and microchipping.
“This is a community issue and we need to work together to be more responsible for our dogs.”
