Help the National Desexing Network end pet overpopulation by getting involved with National Desexing Month!
Last year more than 3,000 kittens and 1,200 puppies were born, surrendered or simply dumped at one of five AWLQ shelters in SE Queensland alone; with many others abandoned to live and breed on the streets, around shopping centres and industrial complexes.”As you know through your own lifesaving work, this is just the tip of the iceberg, with unplanned litters across the country every breeding season, every year, bringing misery to so many.
It could so easily be solved by just one simple operation, the desexing of the household pet.
As part of our ongoing commitment to the cause, the National Desexing Network (NDN) will hold its 13th
Annual National Desexing Month campaign in July. During this month we will be calling on Colleagues, just
like you, to be active campaigners in the push to have as many cats and dogs desexed as possible.
