The Logan City Council has an agreement with the University of Queensland Veterinarian School allowing the school to acquire homeless pets from the shelter for live-animal teaching purposes.
Animals suffer from vivisection, botched surgeries, drug overdoses and are eventually euthanized.
While the shelter claims no "adoptable" animals are transfered to the University, insider information states otherwise. It is believed that some animals don't even get the chance at being adopted before they're sent to the school.
With many effective alternatives available, such as the use of cadavers and surgery simulators, the use of live animals for educational purposes is obsolete.
Sign the petition below to tell Logan City Council to end their agreement and stop sending homeless pets to the University.
