It has come to light that the Council Pounds in Sydney, Melbourne and Queensland (mainly Logan) are under agreements with universities to 'donate' dogs for experimental purposes. The dogs the Councils feel they have the right to donate are ones that owners have surrendered to pounds with the false hope that new forever homes will be found for their beloved pet. Little do they know that the pounds are giving away their dogs and their life is being stripped away, and for what? For veterinary students to practice on? I somehow think that goes against their degree! Once the universities (and sometimes hospitals) are done with these dogs, they are dumped at the local tip (before public opening hours of course)!
