WE NEED AS MANY PEOPLE AS WE CAN TO SIGN THIS PETITION..

PLEASE SIGN TO STOP THE KILLINGS AT BLACKTOWN POUND…

HELP US AND SIGN……

After hours last Friday the 15th of March, Blacktown Pound staff KILLED 5 innocent dogs before their time was up. 

Their names were.. Dignity, Marlon, Zorro, Ronan and Clint. 

These five dogs had adoption/rescue offers.

Not one of these rescues were told these dogs would be killed earlier than what was originally stated to them as being March 17th. 

 Blacktown Pound needs to change NOW. 

These dogs did NOT deserve to die on March 15th.

How is it the first implemented program of the Animal Rehoming Officer to kill 5 out of 7 dogs on the kill list? 

The AWL ( Animal Welfare League) uses that temperament test to help rehabilitate dogs now, 20 years ago they used these temperament tests just to kill dogs. Blacktown pound can NOT ignore rehabilitation and just kill. Nearly 2 years of no kill rate for dogs blown away by the one person (the Animal Rehoming Officer) who was meant to save them.  We can't just stand by and watch while Blacktown pound turns into another RSPCA type killing field? 

We believe that animals being put to their death for no real apparent reason is unethical and cruel. 

These animals had foster carers lined up and Blacktown pound advised their time would be up on Sunday March 17th yet they killed them days prior to this. 

Blacktown pound knows very well that rescues come forth on Saturday and bail out these animals, yet they still killed them.

It is just NOT acceptable.
