THINGS are about to change at Gosford pound, with a new private company set to take over running the establishment and dog adoptions on the cards from next year.
Elise Foster and Jessica Moody will assume management of the pound, at Erina, on January 6 under the banner of their company Gosford Dog Paws, ending years of management by the RSPCA.
“The RSPCA is facing many issues at the moment, including closure of some pounds, and was unable to continue accepting dogs from Gosford pound,” Ms Foster said.
“I have been working here for two years, and Jess for about five, so we decided to set up our own company and will continue running the pound on behalf of Gosford Council.
“Being a private company, we will be making dog adoptions available from the pound, so people will no longer have to travel to Somersby to buy a dog. I think that will see our sales success rate rise.”
