Animal Shelter Open Day 2019

Cost: Free

Bookings: No booking required

Location: 8 Production Road Taren point

You’re invited to Sutherland Shire Council’s annual Animal Shelter Open Day - an event for the whole family (four-legged fur-kids included)

Join us on Saturday 7 December 2019 from 9am to 2pm for a day filled with fun and educational activities including dog training demonstrations, face painting, a sausage sizzle, bake sale and tips from local pet educators. Meet our dedicated staff and volunteers, as well as other rescue organisations, and find out how you can help.

Take a tour of the shelter, pat some dogs or cuddle some kittens, and possibly adopt a pet!

If your pet isn’t currently microchipped, take advantage of our Open Day offer – only $16.50 (normally price $64). If bringing along your pet, please ensure cats are in crates and all dogs are on leads

Thank you to our friends and partners joining us on the day:

Nooch’s Pooches – featuring dog training demonstrations and educational talks throughout the day.
