IPSWICH, LOCKYER VALLEY & GOLD COAST COUNCIL FUNDING FULLY UTILISED

Our campaigns for Ipswich Council cat desexing, Lockyer Valley Regional Council cat desexing and Gold Coast City Council (Qld) cat desexing have been very successful over the past months and the funding has been fully used.  This means that we are not able to issue further vouchers at present but we are hoping to secure additional funding in the future. We still have participating NDN Vets in these areas offering discount desexing for concession card holders so please apply for a voucher online at our website or contact us on 1300 368 992.

Thanks to City of Gold Coast, Ipswich City Council and Lockyer Valley Regional Council for funding these Desexing Programs.

Thanks also to the participating veterinarians:

  • in City of Gold Coast –AWLQ Community Vet Clinic in Coombabah, Arundel Vet Surgery in Labrador, Companion Care Vet in Ormeau, Curtis Street Vets in Pimpama, Jacobs Well Vet Surgery, Tugun Vet Surgery, and the Pet Wellness Centre, Burleigh Heads,.
  • in Ipswich - AWLQ Community Vet Clinic, Raceview Veterinary Surgery, Marburg Vet Clinic, Ipswich Family Vet Clinic and Yamanto Vet Surgery.
  • in Lockyer Valley Regional Council area - Laidley Veterinary Surgery and Gatton Vet Surgery.

The National Desexing Network manages G2Z Cooperative Desexing Programs for Councils free of charge. This saves Councils having to train and employ staff to manage calls, send out vouchers, recruit and reimburse local veterinarians, and work with residents who sometimes need extra information and support to organise desexing of their cats.   Any Councils interested in running this program can email info@ndn.org.au

G2Z Cooperative Desexing programs are designed to help owners who are struggling, as well as be fair to local vets by covering costs, and to benefit the whole community by reducing Councils’ animal management costs to manage unwanted litters.

“On the Gold Coast the number of unwanted kittens has reduced as a result of desexing programs, and all healthy and treatable cats and kittens can now be rehomed,” Strategic Director, Dr Joy Verrinder, said.
