Resist the temptation to buy that gorgeous kitten or puppy in the window. Because this lucrative pet shop market exists in Australia, backyard breeders and "puppy farms" who supply to pet shops continue to churn out more and more poor puppies and kittens, much to the detriment of the animals.

Approximately 130,000 dogs and 60,000 cats are killed at pounds every year. Unbelievable, eh? The practice of selling animals from pet shops promotes impulse buying and irresponsible breeding for profit. Please help us to stop it. We already have far too many dogs and cats without homes.

Bendigo Animal Welfare and Community Services
Bendigo Animal Welfare and Community Services (BAWCS), formerly Bendigo Animal Shelter, was founded in 2003 and is a registered charity. Our approach is unique in comparison to other animal welfare organisations. Rather than focussing on what people can do for animals; we instead focus on what animals can do for people. The end result is that both people and animals have the opportunity to share in a nurturing environment with positive outcomes for both.
With this underpinning philosophy, we provide programs in the key areas of Community Support, Education and Animal Welfare.

www.australiancattledogrescue.com
The dogs in our rescue program are usually brought to our attention by the staff of the Department of Animal Services or RSPCA shelters. They are noticed by the staff who feel that they have potential and would make a good pet for someone. They are assessed by us with people, other dogs and various other animals to ensure a sound temperament before the decision is made to foster and eventually place them in a caring new home. The dog is then checked by a vet, heartworm tested and given any medical treatment required. All dogs stay with a foster carer for at least one week during which time they are vaccinated, wormed, spayed or neutered and given a flea and tick treatment. This time gives the foster carer time to evaluate the dogs personality and to assess it's special needs so that it can be matched to the ideal home.
