Desexing pets push: Make it mandatory, says Sunraysia animal welfare group

A SUNRAYSIA animal rescue group has called for Mildura Council to consider mandatory pet desexing after the Victorian Dog Rescue and Resource Group (Vic DRG) mounted a social media attack on the Mildura pound.

Sunraysia Animal Rehousing Group (SARG) president Trudie Chant said mandatory desexing would help reduce many issues caused by irresponsible pet ownership in the region, including overpopulation. 

Vic DRG’s allegations about practices at the council-operated facility have sparked intense debate over animal welfare issues in the region, with Sunraysia Daily receiving a flurry of emails from concerned residents.
