Congratulations to Taffy and Pinot who have won the $20 Pet Central voucher! 

Thanks to everyone who entered - we have loved seeing all the dogs from around the district.



Send a photo of your registered dog (and it's name) wearing it's green tag to before 20 August 2018 and be in to win a $20 Pet Central voucher!

We want to see your dogs showing off their green tags from every corner of the district. Big or small, farm or pet, send us your pictures and you and your dog will automatically be entered in the draw for the voucher.
