April Peterson ..hello from Newcastle..:) No im sorry, ive not heard a word as yet. I hope something gets worked out soon... :( My own rescue dogs came from Blacktown in late 2011, early 2012... to think that they could have been in the same position as the 5 who got killed the other night makes me sick to my stomach. Sad sad story for all the animals now. Hugs Jayne

maybe if there is proof this should be taken to the papers. people who hand their dogs in to see if they can get a new home for their pets would be disillusioned.

We need to stop breeders over populating the animal population

I find the one week period that they are allowed to live revolting - it is the same here in Romania. Furthermore, Animal Planet also presents this as normal. It is NOT. What if the owner accesses their establishment in the 8th day? The British and the Germans have wonderful places where any dog, no matter how sick or disturbed, is kept alive for ever.

Mackay City Council recent won an award for its Pets Pound program. They work with local Vets & the MARS rescue group to rehome the animals, and the program has proved very successful. Of course animals that have been involved in attacks are put through the test, but overall a successful result. I would like to see a movement towards this type of program Nation wide as a first step, & in future regulation of home breeding as with professional breeders. We should be able to get to a point...

I would like to see a movement towards this type of program Nation wide as a first step, & in future regulation of home breeding as with professional breeders. We should be able to get to a point where we place all breeders whether backyard home breeders under the same stipulations as others. In my neighbourhood I noticed over a number of weeks a backyard breeder with four - five puppies (3 of which have their tails docked - thought this to be illegal in Aust), unable to sell the pups. By the age of 4-6mths old they all disappear from the backyard - hopefully to the rescue group mentioned. I am realistic though - until we can regulate farmed puppies, we wont be able to control the backyard breeders. I wont even get to the story of another person in the neighbourhood who's cats are breeding machine at tender ages! Let's at least work on the above positive!

Why always killing stop killing innocent animals they have the right to life like you.

Demand this person's job! Why are you folks allowing this person to stay in their position. Get as many people as you can to scream and boycott. Call the media, papers, TV news, anyone who will give this any attention and demand this person be fired. It will stop. The only way to get it to stop is to protest!

All of the dogs look like they have some "pit bull" in them (emphasise "look like"). One had scars all over his face - often and indicator of fighting and/or being used as bait. If these dogs were any other breed or mix than "pit bull" looking, they would likely be alive and rescued. At Carson shelter in Los Angeles, 10 out of 12 dogs on their "kill list", which were euthanized in one day, were all considered "pit bull" type dogs. The remaining 2 of the 12 were spared. 'Nuf said.

I know that not all dogs are suitable for rehoming; sadly, it's usually not their fault, it's due to previous mistreatment by former owners. However, I was very saddened and disturbed to see that 5 dogs have recently been killed after failing their temperament tests. I have seen some branches of the RSPCA use temperament tests which are totally inappropriate; in fact the average dog would be unlikely to pass them, and a scared and confused...

However, I was very saddened and disturbed to see that 5 dogs have recently been killed after failing their temperament tests. I have seen some branches of the RSPCA use temperament tests which are totally inappropriate; in fact the average dog would be unlikely to pass them, and a scared and confused dog in the raucous and stressful environment of a pound would have very little chance. I believe a better way is for shelter staff to come to a consensus, say at a weekly staff meeting, as to which dogs are showing unacceptable behaviour, e.g. aggression, and whether it is likely to be a condition which can be rehabilitated or not. The staff know which dogs are ok and which aren't, and a consensus would stop any personal bias. I know it's a difficult situation and the staff are under horrible stress dealing with ghastly tasks which are only necessary because of the greed, cruelty and stupidity of negligent breeders and owners, but there must be a better way. RIP you poor babies; I'm so sorry you were let down by human beings.
