    The animal welfare league

    They do great work at rehoming animals and encouraging law changes. I volunteered there for 2 years.

    The best news is that the Animal Welfare League of Qld is adopting the "No Kill " practices inspired by Nathan Winograds book 'Redemption' which is changing hearts and minds in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand as well. A shelter manager for the Animal Welfare League of Queensland said that before Redemption, they found many reasons to kill an animal. Now, they focus on one reason not to: they are savable. And they are finding that with a little innovation, they are able to save them, as well as find them loving, new homes. Now the race is on, as Australia, New Zealand, and the United States vie to become the first to be a No Kill nation. How fantastic would that be?!!

    mika08 says: Wow, that would be great to have a No Kill nation. I hate how a dog is put down just because he/she might get a annoyed when you stick your hand in their food bowl - I mean what owner does that is real life anyway???? And if you have kids like I do, you make sure they know all the rules and abide by them about dog safety to avoid any situation arising. My kids know they don't like to be annoyed while eating their dinner so they don't annoy our dog when she eats hers.

    Ralph says: Having a NoKill policy would be awesome...I am a member of PoundRound in NSW and volunteer at SA Dog Rescue and it is always a nervous wait to either get transport for an animal or find at least a foster home...No dogs deserve to die purely because the owner does not want it anymore (there are a few exceptions to the case) and animals have emotinal and physical feelings which can traumatise them too. How do we go about getting this practice into the other states that do not have the NoKill Policy??? I watch the PoundRounds everyday on Facebook and Share and practically beg people to help these dogs...I help as much as I can but have two dogs of my own and my council wont allow me to have any more ....Animal Welfare, SA Dog Rescue, PoundRounds and WSPA all do a fantastic job as does other countries all over the world...people need to be more like dogs who are loyal, loving and unconditionally faithful...

    wallace says: I agree that they do a job. They help any animal find homes and keep them safe from losts of things.

    People always make organisations to help people which is good but they also need to make more to help animals, just because they dont speak or walk or look like us doesnt mean they dont feel tha same and think some same thoughts.

    Thats why the animal welfare league is good because they are helping the needy and in this case they are animals.

    sprinkles says: The Care2 website has a lot of petitions for people who want to help animals and a daily Click to donate , where you can help unwanted pets, primates, global warming. I love this site.
    I support any animal welfare cause i can, and am really concerned about the continued cosmetic testing on animals. It's , well, don't ever look at the videos of what the animals go through. It's traumatising. But I think Humane Society International is running a petition to try to stop this.

    Blossom says: Sorry to hear about what happenend in your case. I don't know what state you are in. In SA they are vet checked, vaccinated and desexed before they are allocated to a new owner. Did you notify them what happened.??
    In Adelaide they now desex both female and male dogs. The earlier they receive the dog if it has to happen the better, as they can more easily assess any behavioural problems caused my mistreatment. A neighbour of mine got one that was 7 months old when he was surrendered. We are sure he had been beaten as he becomes scared but very defensive if you have anything such as a toolbox, case or bottle in your hand which her dog is very wary and defensive of. Even if he knows the person and sees them on a regular basis, sometimes once a week. When they are put down, the dog settles and is very friendly and will even lay in your lap and go to sleep.

    peco says: I think this is a great organisation. Too many animals are put down because of their behaviour towards humans. If humans would train their animals properly and treat them well as they themselves would wish to be treated we wouldn't have animals attacking them. This organisation successfully rehouses a lot of animals.

    twelve says: Yes, the AWL is a great organisation but, there is a much bigger picture here. Being a retired Vet nurse the biggest problem is that the pet owners need training and educating, not the pet. Too many people try to humanise their pets which results in all sorts of issues for the pet. Animals need to be allowed to live and behave like animals. If a cat is forced to stay inside in case it kills birds etc. then it will develop bad habits. Killing wildlife is part of the food chain and keeps the population in check. The AWL would have less animals to rehouse if people were more responsible. Taking on an animal is a huge responsibility and should be carefully considered before doing so.

There are far to many barbaric acts perpetrade on diffenceless animals and cruelty is prevailent in our modern society , both in domestic as well as animals in the wild, killed for monetary gain !
