Wakool Shire Council is leading the way in helping raise awareness about the benefits of desexing animals by asking Young People to design a postcard that can relay the message.
Thousands of healthy cats and dogs are euthanased each year across our State because not enough homes can be found for them – we have an ‘oversupply’ of pets.
Many cats and dogs are bred by accident, because owners don’t get around to desexing their pets. In our local area, the failure to desex cats in particular is a very big problem. It is possible for cats to breed from as young as four months of age!
Every year our local Vet Clinics are inundated with cats and kittens without homes, and they are simply unable to find a home for them all. Desexing goes a long way to helping stop this ‘oversupply’.
The Wakool Shire Medicine and Allied Health Scholarship supports young people from Wakool Shire and surrounds in the study of medicine and allied health at university.
