    It is up to the rate payers to demand that their councils do not allow “high kill” pounds to win their pound contracts it should be an essential part of their tender the number of animals that will not be killed.
    I think also smaller rescues should band together and go and speak to their local councils about taking all their animals for care without going through the tender process then this cuts out the money factor.

    Even more damning; across Australia (Victorian, NSW and QLD shelters), the LDH have 39 dogs available for adoption. Victorian Dog Rescue, a volunteer based, self funded rescue have 51 dogs available for adoption just in Victoria. That was in the last hour.
