Stop the oversupply and euthansia of healthy pets

We need to create a SIGNIFICANT reduction in the over-supply of companion animals onto the market in New South Wales, Australia. 60,000 healthy, but unwanted cats and dogs are killed in NSW pounds each year. Whilst the work that shelters, rescue groups, volunteers and foster carers do is vital, it is a band-aid. It does not solve the problem. Something must be done about the chronic over-supply into a market that does not have the capacity to provide homes for all. Let\'s fix the problem and stop the over-supply by tackling all the reasons for it. Here\'s 4 great ideas we want to turn into a reality: 1. Restrict the sale of cats and dogs to registered breeders, pounds and animal shelters only 2. Stop all sources of mass production of kittens and puppies for profit i.e. stop puppy farms and backyard breeders 3. Make de-sexing mandatory for all pets at the point of sale 4. Increase the re-homing rate in pounds and shelters via better low-kill policies Please sign this petition so we can tell the people that count. (ie Members of Parliament, Pet Industry Associations, Veterinary Association, Media, Pounds). Thank you for your support. \"Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.\" Albert Schweitzer
