Council warns against unwanted pet presents

ABC News, Dec 7 2009

The Rockhampton Regional Council is urging residents to think twice before giving someone a pet this Christmas.

Councillor Tony Williams says many pets are often abandoned after the holiday period.

He is asking residents to consider the responsibilities of pet ownership.

“We as council are the last port of call, we often see a large number of dumpings over the Christmas period, so really consider, if you’re giving a pet for a present, to make sure that the person that receives that gift, they are fully aware of the responsibilities of owning a pet,” he said.
