Damien Ryan, President, Local Government Association of the NT add value to local government and their regions.The Barkly Shire Council won the "Improving Services to Remote Communities" category for introducing an Animal Health Program to provide regular veterinary services within the Tennant Creek community, primarily to domestic dogs. The program aims to reduce dog overpopulation, minimise the number of dog related injuries to humans and improve the poor health of animals within the Barkly Shire. The program has also seen the establishment of an ongoing veterinary practice in Tennant Creek. The need to improve animal health in remote communities through the reduction of skin disease, ticks, worms and other parasites was necessary to improve community health. The program has also successfully reduced the number of dogs roaming freely within the shire.
