Small-animal sale plan for markets

ORGANISERS of the Grafton Showground Markets are hoping to develop a small-animal marketplace within the showgrounds pavilion, to be held in conjunction with the regular markets, on the third Sunday of each month.

Vice president Barry Reeves said he hoped more people would take advantage of the opportunity to sell small animals in a comfortable environment.

"We've been trying to get this operating for some time and we want people to know that we have this great shed that's nice and cool so they can bring along all types of animals to sell at the markets," Mr Reeves said.

"In the past we've had caged birds, rabbits, quails, guinea pigs, ferrets, chooks, geese, ducks, turkeys, dogs, and cats.

"There's no need for a licence and all people need to do is turn up on market day at 7am and we'll find them a spot inside."

However, anyone wishing to buy or sell a dog or cat in NSW should note that, under the Companion Animals Act 1998 all dogs and cats born since 1999 must be micro-chipped at point of sale, change of ownership or by 12 weeks of age, whichever occurs first.

Mr Reeves said the showgrounds could assist with the provision of pens, but encouraged stall holders to provide their own secure enclosures if possible.

The Grafton Showground Markets are operated by the Grafton Show Society. Phone Suzanne Patricks on 6642 2240.
