Providenciales, 05 Aug 2015 – In the effort to put down feral dogs, residents’ pets are being euthanized – inadvertently – by the Animal Control Unit.

And so we don’t want to have anyone losing their beloved pets but you have to take responsibility in ensuring they are tagged properly and easily identified by you but also that they are able to remain within the confines of your property.”
Deputy Premier and Member for Long Bay and Leeward, Hon. Akierra Missick talked about issues impacting her district as she prepared for a community meeting, which was held last night at the Blue Haven Resort. DP Misick talked about other points to be presented at the community meeting.
