As a vet, are you doing all you can to help end pet overpopulation?

July is National Desexing Month, so now is the time to get on board and start making an impact on the lives of cats and dogs. You will join hundreds of vets across Australia by offering discounted desexing and spreading the word of National Desexing Month.

Last year more than 3000 kittens and 1200 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, bringing misery to so many innocent lives.

All of this could be so easily solved by just one simple operation, the desexing of the household pet.

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS CHANGE – WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU

Step 2 – Download the press release and forward it to your local media – press release available HERE

Step 4 – Keep a tally on the Feedback form as the month progresses – this is so we can promote the wonderful work you do i.e. how many animals are desexed across Australia during the month and any special success stories.

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 business, showcasing your investment in your community and animal welfare.

For those of you who have supported us before, or support us every year, thank you. You are making a difference to the lives of so many and helping change the way companion animals, and their young are viewed into the future.
