Animal Welfare League NSW veterinarians desex and vaccinate pets during Moree visit

Nearly 50 pets were desexed and 100 cats and dogs were vaccinated over the weekend when a team from Animal Welfare League NSW (AWL NSW) visited Moree.

A team of veterinarians and support staff were in town from Friday, March 8 until Sunday, March 10, during which time they offered free desexing, vaccination and microchipping of companion animals to pensioners.

AWL NSW senior veternarians Dr Deshaylia Moodley and Dr Candace Russo, along with veternarian Dr Anita Trinh attended the trip to Moree with a number of veterinary nurses, who together desexed almost 50 pets and vaccinated 100 cats and dogs.

Eight cat condos were also donated to Moree Plains Shire Council, to assist with disease control and separating cats who are un-desexed or do not get along in the newly-renovated pound.

The team also donated 50 bales of hay to provide drought relief to local farmers. The hay was delivered by two B-doubles provided by Hawkesbury Hay Runners.

The team would like to thank Bayer Animal Health, Hawkesbury Hay Runners and everyone who provided support in making the trip to Moree possible.
