    I’m with you Shel. Thanks for your constant efforts on behalf of vulnerable animals (and sometimes their owners). :)

    Great article and thank you so much for taking up this issue. Perhaps future contracts need to contain financial penalties for each category of animal that has euthanised animals. Perhaps
    This might encourage a different focus, some more creative strategies and more effort on treating, training and rehabilitation and more collaborative relationships with rescue groups willing to help and
    to fundraiser to pay for medical treatment, medication and to find an ongoing adoptive home or sanctuary foster care for the rest of the animals life. I know it can be done and it works because I see it every day on Facebook all over Australia and the world.

    Shouldn’t this disgraceful kill rate become a State Political issue?
    How about it Dan?

    I am confused ! The story I read on Facebook was not just referring to mismanagement and early euthanasia for found defenseless digs taken to this so called Lost Dogs Home… Yes Home as in a safe place !!!!!!
    The story told described a brutal ordeal
    The witness who was told to leave the room should not have left without the dog
    The person who posted on Facebook should have been writing a police report
    And now the media should be all over this like fleas to a unkept dogs behind!
    Wake up people stop writing and act
    I have made a start – I need more facts and I will not stop until I have an accurate factual story – and if needed someone held accountable for what appears to be atrocious behavior
    I am ashamed of the human race at times …and this may be one if them!

    As others have said, the LDH could have put him up for adoption after his eight days, and his owner might have found him that way.

    Instead, they chose to kill him. I’m unimpressed with the way the media is making this out to be a “mix up.” There have been other incidents like this (Scruffy, anyone?) from the LDH. Not to mention harassment and lies directed at anyone calling out their practices. The journalists shouldn’t be looking at this as a one-off, but just one drop in a toxic ocean.

    Terrible statistics when you look at the fine print. How about the poor cats. I believe 80 percent are euthanised. This seems to be overlooked by the media. Why take in more than you can handle.
