Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has encouraged dog owners to avail of the free neutering and microchip services being provided in the Ballymagroarty and Hazelbank areas.
Cllr. McGinley said: “There have been longstanding problems across the city from unwanted litters and stray dogs which cannot be identified and the Dogs Trust initiative has proven in the past to be an effective way to address these difficulties.
Neutering will prevent unwanted litters whilst micro-chipping allows stray dogs to be quickly identified and returned to owners. It is important to note also that micro-chipping is a requirement for possession of a dog licence.
The Dogs Trust will shortly be providing a very welcome free service in the Ballymagroarty and Hazelbank areas and I would encourage dog owners to take this opportunity and bring their dogs along to the locations highlighted below.”
