We hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas! We’re open 8am-6pm 28th, 29th and 30th December and then we reopen on the 3rd January.
If you’re looking for something to do to ring in the New Year, the City of Gold Coast website lists some of the family friendly NYE options here http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/thegoldcoast/new-years-eve-events-6851.html . There will also be fireworks at Coolangatta at 9pm if you want to get an early celebration in with the kids.
Don’t forget your furry mates on New Years Eve! Some pets are very frightened by fireworks so please take the appropriate precautions for your pet. If you have a new pup or perhaps a new rescue pet, please don’t leave them alone during the fireworks if you’re not sure how they’ll react. Best thing is to try to help make it a really positive experience for them if you can. Treats, toys and music can help 🙂
Many pets get so distressed that they run away. If you find or lose a pet, Gold Coast Lost and Found Pets Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/goldcoastlostandfoundpets/?fref=ts is a wonderful, helpful community and please also contact the pound on 07 5581 7600. If you need them, the amazing team at the Animal Emergency Service are open throughout the break, phone 5559 1599.
2016 has been a mixed year for the world, but it was and always will be the year that Pet Wellness Centre began – so we think it’s been a pretty good one! Here’s to an even better 2017! CHEERS 🙂
