Dogs Trust Community Event
On Thursday 6th July Fyne Homes Tenant Participation hosted a Dogs Trust Community event in Rothesay.
The event saw staff from the Dogs Trust, including a veterinary nurse, give Fyne Homes tenants pet dogs and members of the public pet dogs free advice on caring for their dogs, free dog health checks and free microchipping for those dogs not already chipped. A change in legislation has now made microchipping of dogs a legal requirement.
The event was a great success, over 36 dogs were examined over the 3 hours period of the event with 12 dogs being chipped. Some of the comments following the event from dog owners were “Amazing idea from Fyne Homes” , “This kind of event brings tenants into better contact with Fyne Homes” and "The girls from the Dogs Trust were great!".
With the event being so successful, Fyne Homes have again teamed up with the Dogs Trust to offer these free services to their tenants and members of the wider community in Dunoon, Campbeltown and Lochgilphead. Dates and venues will be confirmed in the near future so keep an eye on the website.
