Today I caught up with NBN news to talk about the importance of desexing your pet. As the weather heats up shelters are inundated with with litters of kittens and puppies from unplanned pregnancies.
Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world. Four out of five Australians have owned a pet and almost two-thirds of Australian households currently own pets. Despite these figures, around 23 cats and dogs die every hour of every day in pounds and shelters nationwide. Due to the ongoing problem of pet overpopulation, these healthy, loving animals are being killed because there are not enough homes available. Desexing helps put a stop to this statistic.
