Residents are invited to meet the dogs and cats at the Campbelltown Animal Care Facility during a community open day this Saturday, March 11.

From 10am to 2pm visitors can join a guided tour of the facility, meet the animals and learn about the adoption process.

There will be a range of free giveaways alongside stalls from pet suppliers and animal organisations on the day.

 “Welcoming a new pet into your home is always a big decision so this is a great opportunity for people to meet the animals and speak to our team about the adoption process,” Mayor George Greiss said.

“All the animals from our facility come microchipped, health checked and registered so adopting from Council is always a great option,” Cr Greiss said.

Numbers are limited for the guided tours, so it’s best to book ahead of time.

For booking information and details visit the Campbelltown Council’s website.

  • In other council news, residents and businesses can now have their say on whether they would support a smoking and vaping-free trial in selected areas of the Campbelltown and Ingleburn CBDs.

Council is preparing a feasibility study for a potential trial that would seek to limit smoking and vaping in some areas of the Queen Street, Campbelltown (pictured above) and Oxford Road, Ingleburn precincts.

In order to determine the feasibility of a trial, Council is seeking feedback from residents, business owners and visitors who regularly use the Campbelltown and Ingleburn CBDs.

“These surveys will help us to understand public sentiment on whether areas in our CBDs should be smoke-free zones, and will be considered alongside other data such as how the spaces are currently being used,” Mayor George Greiss said.

“The data captured will inform the recommendations of the feasibility study so I encourage anyone interested in this issue to take part in the survey and provide your feedback,” Cr Greiss said.
