New pound for the Sunshine Coast
Construction of council’s new animal pound facility is now underway, with completion expected by October 2016.
The new facility will be located in Sippy Creek Road, Tanawha which is a central location in the region integral to servicing the domestic animal, livestock and poultry population.
Mayor Mark Jamieson said the new Sippy Creek Animal Pound would have the ability to service the region’s growing pet population and animal management needs now and in to the future.
“The current pound has been servicing the Coast for more than 30 years and demand on the service has grown significantly over that time,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“We have a commitment to safely house lost or abandoned animals and the new pound will enable us to do so in a way that is aligned with contemporary animal welfare obligations and guidelines.”
