Reform the Muswellbrook Shire Council Animal Shelter

This petition had 1,379 supporters


We request that Muswellbrook Shire Council improve the conditions for the animals impounded at their Shelter asap.
Several years ago this Shelter had a very good reputation and a low kill rate.
So, what has changed at this Shelter over the past five years or so?
Recently 2 dogs named Buddy and Bandit were surrendered there.
Both dogs were desexed, microchipped and lifetime registered.
Their owners paid $102 surrender fees to this Pound for them to be rehomed.
If per chance someone had seen Bandit and Buddy and wanted to adopt them, they had to be able to attend the pound between noon and 2pm weekdays to do that.
From 11 April until kill day 21st April there were only 5 days that were not WEEKEND or PUBLIC HOLIDAYS.
This Council and Pound offered Bandit and Buddy ONLY a total of 10 hours to be adopted and saved.
This pound does not have a website that lists available dogs and cats.
They only have a Facebook page where they post a photo of the animals but they won't respond to messages or comments and they don't have Albums of current dogs or list adoption prices or opening times for the pound. This is not good enough!
