So why is it (and I know this would be better directed to a politician) that a pound ....? If it's mandatory that animals are microchipped at least - before they are sold.If you look at statistical data for NSW pounds, the bigger percentage of dogs (and cats) are not mircochipped.
Edited Blacktown does microchip before it sells. Don't want any misinfo getting into the search engines.
They don't desex.
I still think it would be better if they did - but asking for the data is a damn good idea.
I would like to see data that specifically tracks dogs that go out from pounds undesexed and tracks if any puppies result or if they end up back at the pound. Tracking intake for pounds - doesn't seem to work since they sometimes take more dogs from elsewhere.
