Cr McKay - New! Lifetime registration option
  • Friday 31 October 2014

As cat registration now falls under the local law, owners who have desexed and microchipped cats can choose lifetime registration, with around 100 responsible owners already taking up the option. Lifetime registration means you pay a one-off registration fee of $75 and no annual renewal fees for the life of your cat.  To switch to lifetime registration, contact council online, email or by phone.

Animal strategy launch celebrations
Speaking of cats, they, along with dogs and owners are all invited to attend the Domestic Animal Management Strategy launch event at Elizabeth Daniels Park, Syd Lingard Drive, Buderim from 7.30 - 11am, November 2.

The fun-filled morning will feature free microchipping for cats and dogs, entertainment for people and animals, food stalls, sample bags, animal training and much more.

Dogs must be on-leash and cats must be in a cage at all times.

Make a difference with the gift of literacy
Sunshine Coast Council libraries has joined forces with the Salvation Army to promote literacy and spread the Christmas cheer to less fortunate children around the region as part of the annual Books 4 Kids Christmas book drive from November 10 until December 15. To find out how you can brighten a child’s life with the gift of reading, visit Council’s library website.

Livestock owners, especially those in the Eumundi to Kenilworth areas, should be on the lookout for Fireweed, a plant with bright yellow daisy like flowers. All parts of the plant, even dried plant material, are toxic to livestock when ingested.

If you think you have Fireweed on your property, download the factsheet on Council’s website for more information about identification and removal.
