Shire of Capel's Vet Subsidy Scheme

The Shire of Capel is aware of the high cost of living and how it is impacting our community.

We are excited to announce that The Shire is launching a Vet Subsidy Scheme for your furry loved ones. Under this scheme, we will contribute towards the cost of microchipping and/or sterilising your pets.

$50.00 towards microchipping and a maximum of $100.00 towards sterilisation per animal.
