Pets play an important role in many households with many regarded as ‘family’ members. Australia-wide around 40% of households have one or more dogs. Here are three ways you can reduce your dog’s impact on the environment: • Desex and microchip your dog • Walk your dog regularly and collect their poo to reduce pollution of waterways • Supplement your dog’s diet of purchased food with off-cuts from your local butcher and small amounts of cooked vegetables and rice And if you are thinking about purchasing a new dog – check out the RSPCA shelter Adopt-a-Pet: https://www.adoptapet.com.au/ ACT Government Conservation
