Save Liverpool Animal Shelter

Liverpool Council has now just announced that they are closing the "no-kill" Liverpool Animal Shelter on March 19. That's right - it is closing and noone locally knew about it let alone was consulted about it. Instead all animals will now go to Blacktown Holding Facility which is not a "no-kill" shelter....26km's away...
Instead of relocating locally Liverpool council have agreed to a 5 year deal with Blacktown council to use the $27 million "state-of-the-art animal rehoming centre" being built in 2022. This new facility will only be able to house 135 dogs and 230 cats and is claimed to become a "No Kill Shelter" for 7 Sydney councils.

What does this mean for the animals in Liverpool?
Whilst the council are trying to assure us this will be a "No Kill Shelter"
How many dogs will be put to sleep for being "aggressive" or "non rehomeable" to bring the facilities numbers down at busy periods?
How many animals will just disappear off the radar?
How many animals will have to suffer before the council listens? 

In the meantime until the new facility is built our local animals will be crammed into the existing Blacktown animal holding facility which currently houses 72 dogs and 50 cats. There is not enough room for the existing councils let alone a big council like Liverpool.

The Liverpool Animal Shelter has helped hundreds of animals since 2016 either through rehoming, adoption or reuniting lost pets. Our animals will suffer if we don't stop this closure.

We must fight to get the shelter relocated to somewhere permanent in the LGA. Please show your support in helping to stop the closure of the Liverpool Animal Shelter by signing this petition and sharing with your network.

Our animals don't have a voice, we are their voice!
