In an effort to promote responsible pet ownership and the importance of ensuring your dogs are wearing a collar and tag, Cessnock City Council’s Ranger team has launched a ‘Tag for a Tag’ photo competition on Instagram.
There are 40 Cessnock City Council branded dog tags to be won which come engraved with your dog’s name and your contact details, to ensure your furry friend is returned home safely if they get lost.
To enter, simply take a photo of your dog, post it to Instagram, tag @CessnockCityCouncil (make sure your privacy setting is ‘Public’) and use the hashtag #PuppersOfCessnock.
The competition will kick off on Tuesday 9 November and run through to Thursday 9 December 2021. 40 winners will be chosen and be notified by Tuesday 14 December and tags will be posted out soon after.
Cessnock City Council’s General Manager, Lotta Jackson, said Council’s Ranger team works tirelessly to educate residents about responsible pet ownership and is encouraging residents to get involved in this wonderful initiative.
“Dogs are cherished members of the family and collars with tags are the best thing to have your furry friend returned home promptly if they get lost. It’s also a legal requirement to wear them in a public place.”
“We find that most people, if they find a dog, will first look for a phone number to return to the owner directly before calling the Ranger or taking them to the RSPCA,” added Lotta.
