Petition to Joy Hentschke

We the undersigned wish to see Streaky Bay Council laws on Volunteer Cat Traps change.

At the moment Volunteer Cat Trapping is welcomed by the District Council of Streaky Bay, as Feral Cats have been always been & continue to be a problem for this town. Unfortunately though, not everyone seems to be doing the right thing as suggested by Council & many Pet Cats are mysteriously disappearing. The Council laws need to be looked at, so that Pet Cats & their owners are protected.  Cat trapping needs to be undertaken ONLY by Council Officers, so that it's Feral Cats being caught & euthanised properly, NOT family pets, by Community members hiring a trap to deal with a problem Pet in their area. It is far too easy to trap a neighboring cat & dispose of it, without anyone ever knowing. Many people in Streaky Bay have had Pet Cats mysteriously disappear & some people have stories about how they are fully aware of who disposed of their pet after trapping it in a Volunteer Cat trap (easily available from Council) or from many sites on the internet. We would like The District Council of Streaky Bay of SA to meet & discuss making changes to the hiring of Cat traps to members of the Community within the town. We would like the following changes to be made: Volunteer Cat Trapping to STOP within the inner residential part of Streaky Bay. That descision be made very clear to Community members & a fine put in place for ignoring the new Bi-Law. We require our local Council to protect Pet owners in the Community by making these changes.

Petition to Animal Welfare League Board of Directors

Urgently re-open the Ingleside animal shelter

There is a desperate need for the Ingleside animal shelter to be reopened to provide facilities for stray, lost, abandoned or surrendered animals. Due to its location, the facility also has access to one of the best markets for re-homing and an income stream from boarding. The Animal Welfare League (AWL) NSW recently permanently closed the relatively new million dollar state-of-the-art facility without consultation or transparency to the community who funded it through fundraising and bequests. The land is worth several million dollars and given the costs of the Sydney property market, the opportunity to acquire such an asset in the future will  be near impossible. NOTE: Updates will be posted to this Facebook page We the petitioners, hereby petition the Board of the AWL NSW, currently consisting of  GLYNIS BOOBYER NARELLE COCKS DAVID HOPE AUDREY MCGEOWN CHRISTINE RICHARDSON SHAWN SKYRING ANNETTE TOMLINSON as follows: To take all necessary steps to re-open the shelter. To publicly explain details of the compliance issues relating to waste water management and building codes which caused the shelter to close down, and why the shelter cannot be reopened. Disclose and make public any proposed sale or redevelopment of the Ingleside shelter site. You can read more about the shelter here
