It's that time of year again, when tens of thousands of cats, kittens, dogs and puppies will be abandoned and euthanized, in Queensland alone. This is completely preventable by simply introducing mandatory desexing pre-transfer. This will rapidly reduce unnecessary suffering for animals, and costs involved for animal welfare organisations and pounds in caring for, rehoming or having to euthanize so many animals year after year. The laws around companion animals in this state are outmoded and overdue for a massive overhaul. Please bring these laws up to date, or nothing will change, puppies and kittens will continue to be killed.
