Discount Desexing and Health Checks - Walgett Shire Council


RSPCA NSW, in conjunction with the Walgett Shire Council and local Walgett and Lightning Ridge veterinarian Dr Enid Coupé, will this week offer reduced-rate veterinary services to pensioners and lower income earners as part of RSPCA NSW’s Community Animal Welfare Scheme (CAWS). The program will be available to eligible residents from today until the 28th November.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have had the ongoing support of both Walgett Regional Council and passionate local vet Enid Coupé,” said Dr Ann-Margret Withers, RSPCA NSW Programs Veterinarian. “This is the second time this year that the program has visited Walgett and Lightning Ridge and we continue to see a decline in the dogs impounded in the Shire,” Withers added.

Walgett and Lightning Ridge residents can contact one of the participating veterinary clinics for more information:
  • Walgett Vet Clinic: 02 6828 1090
  • Lightning Ridge Vet Clinic: 6829 2199
RSPCA NSW’s CAWS will also visit the indigenous communities of Namoi and Ginsie, and will provide free vaccination services for animals of local residents. The program’s aim is to improve the health and safety of indigenous children and families by providing essential companion animal health services in rural indigenous communities that may not otherwise be able to attain them.
