Do you work for Animal Management or Local Council in your area?

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.


As part of our ongoing commitment to end pet overpopulation, the National Desexing Network (NDN will hold it’s annual National Desexing Month campaign in July. During this month we will be calling on leaders in the community and those on the front line in animal welfare, just like you, to promote cat and dog desexing at your local vets, at a reduced rate.


STEP 1 – Work with your local vets to subsidise desexing

Step 2 – Display the National Desexing Month poster – poster available HERE

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

Step 4 – spread the word on social media – social media graphic 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 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.

Please join us in our mission to end pet overpopulation. You will be part of a movement of change in animal welfare which will have long term benefits across Australia.



We offer a FREE service to plan and manage a Cooperative Desexing Program with councils all year round for residents in need in your community. Please contact Dr Joy Verrinder on
