Get involved in National Desexing Month!
Last year more than 2,000 kittens and 700 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 – 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.
During this month we are calling on all our colleagues to be active in the push to have as many cats and dogs desexed as possible.

NDN is driven to pursue social change and ensure that unwanted litters aren’t dumped on your door, ours, or worse. Your involvement will raise the profile of desexing, and lessen the burden on all of our resources in years to come.

cared for into the future.
