More than 40 pets in Carnarvon underwent sterilisation procedures last week after Perth veterinary students ventured to the Gascoyne to offer the services for free.

The spaying and neutering procedures took place at the Mungullah Community Hall. The initiative offered complimentary microchipping and desexing services to animals from all corners of the community.

Veterinary students from Murdoch University travelled from Perth on their practical work placement to perform three days of surgical procedures last week.

The Shire of Carnarvon expressed its deep gratitude to the students for their “exceptional contributions to this cause” as well as the Shire’s diligent rangers and Peter Smith from K9 Control for helping the vet students in this mission.

“This vital program not only enhances the wellbeing of these animals but also serves as an educational platform, promoting responsible pet ownership within the community,” a Shire spokesperson said.
