The City of Casey is gearing up for its inaugural Pet Expo on Saturday 19 May at Wilson Botanic Park Berwick.
The Casey Pet Expo is an opportunity for residents and visitors to learn about responsible pet ownership and animal welfare.
The expo will include:
- Guest presenters
- Live entertainment including the Flipping Disc Dogz
- Wildlife demonstration
- Pet related stalls including a photo booth
- Food and beverage providers
- Information on registrations, desexing, and microchipping on the day
City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett said Casey has one of the highest rates of pet registrations in Melbourne with over 37,000 dogs and cats registered.
“We are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership and the expo is a great way to continue on this work and showcase a range of pet-related businesses and organisations available to our community”, said the Mayor.
“Pets are part of our families and through our journey to transform our most popular transactions we have made the process of pet registration easier through the introduction of a new digital form.
“Council will be offering 50 per cent off the price of new cat or dog registrations made on the day at the expo through our online system. To be eligible to take up this offer on the day please ensure your animals have a current microchip number.
“For the first time this year, Council also sent pet registration reminder notices via email to all residents who have a registered email account with the City of Casey.
“We encourage everyone to bring their furry friend down (on their lead) for an afternoon of fun filled activities for both pets and owners to enjoy”.
