Secure your pets

Repeka Nasiko
Friday, July 11, 2014

THE Lautoka City Council is giving ratepayers one month to get their pets licensed and secure their compounds before the dog trapping campaign resumes.

Council special administrator Praveen Bala said the council was receiving numerous complaints from ratepayers about their missing animals.

"We're starting to get a lot of complaints now from our ratepayers that their pets are missing. So in light of that, we have decided to suspend the dog trapping campaign for one month," Mr Bala said.

"During this time, our ratepayers must do all of the necessary requirements needed to own a pet and that includes getting them licensed."

He said the council was trying its best to also cater for other ratepayers whose complaints had initiated the campaign.

"This whole campaign started because every day, we were getting calls from our ratepayers complaining about stray dogs in their neighbourhoods."
