Community Education and Outreach Program 2019 WinnerCamden Council
Congratulations Camden Council!
In 2013, Camden had officially become the fastest growing local government area (LGA) in NSW, with the number of companion animals set to increase significantly.
In 2014, Council launched PAWS: Pet Awareness and Safety Program, which includes an education book for children and parents, education at local community events, free council run yearly information sessions, free microchipping, free nametags and working with the National Desexing Network to provide subsidised desexing, strategies to increase adoptions and more. The result has been a reduction of the euthanasia rate by 78% for cats and 89% for dogs.
