Prevent abandoned and unwanted cats and dogs in your Council area

Last year more than 2000 kittens and 700 puppies were born, surrendered or simply dumped at one of five AWLQ shelters in South East Queensland alone; with many others abandoned to live and breed on the streets, around shopping centres and industrial complexes.

As you know through the work of local animal management services, this is just the tip of the iceberg with unplanned litters across the country every breeding season, every year, costing communities thousands of dollars to manage to prevent nuisance issues and causing harm to animals and stress to the people who have to manage them.

All of this could be so easily solved by just one operation – desexing.

NATIONAL DESEXING MONTH ENCOURAGES PEOPLE WHO JUST HAVEN’T GOT AROUND TO DESEXING THEIR CAT OR DOG, OR CAN’T AFFORD IT, TO TAKE ACTION BEFORE THE SPRING BREEDING SEASON.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO ACHIEVE THIS!

During National Desexing Month we are calling on Council leaders to support and promote cat and dog desexing at reduced rates at your local veterinary clinics.

4 QUICK STEPS TO JOIN THE MOVEMENT!

Step 1 – Work with your local vets to subsidise desexing in July. If you already offer desexing subsidies all year round or would like more information and help to run our NDN Cooperative Desexing Program, please complete the form HERE

Step 2 – Display the 2018 National Desexing Month posters HERE

Step 3 – Download the National Desexing Month press release HEREand forward it on to your local media

Step 4 – Spread the word on your website, newsletters and through social media – Other promotional resources available HERE

National Desexing Network is driven to pursue social change and ensure that unwanted litters aren’t dumped on your door, ours, or worse. Your involvement will not only raise the profile of pet desexing but also your own, showcasing your investment in your community and proactive approach to animal management and welfare.

For those of you who have supported us before, or support us every year, thank you. You are making a difference by helping to develop responsible care of companion animals in your community and creating a movement of change which will have long term benefits across Australia.
