3.  All paperwork and accounts at the Pound to be independently audited.
4. ID and proof of address when adopting a dog.
5. Access to view kennels and runs to members of the public.
6. Volunteers to be allowed to walk the dogs.
7. Proper management of the Pound/ Shelter FB page.

8.Employment contracts for staff detailing their duties and the consequences for not carrying them out.

9. Assessment by two dog behaviorists before dogs PTS for behavior issues.11. Increased surrender rates to discourage dumping of dogs in the Pound.

10. Commitment to build a new purpose built pound within two years.

The public has been overwhelmingly in favour of these changes and we will hope you will give full consideration to each of them. 

Yours sincerely
