Stopping the slaughter

HUNTER Animal Watch Inc offers subsidised pet desexing to pensioners in the Lower Hunter (‘‘Desex all dogs’’ Herald 25/5).

To date we have helped with the cost of desexing more than 23,000 companion animals.

However, we are well aware that unless the government takes meaningful steps to reduce the disgraceful kill rate in the pounds and shelters of NSW, very little progress will be made.

It is estimated that across Australia 250,000 unwanted animals are killed annually. What does this say about our society? And our governments?
