Bert's looking for a forever home...


Bert is an 18 month old Husky, neutered and vaccinated.  He was rescued earlier this year from the kill list at Canberra's Domestic Animal Services after being surrendered there by the RSPCA.  

Now ready for rehoming, Bert is a friendly and gentle natured Husky and will make a loyal, loving companion for the right individual or family. 

Please do your research before adopting a Husky.  Huskies are running dogs with a high prey drive.  They must be on a leash when out of their secure yard and are not suitable for homes with cats or small animals.

Kangaroos' last Summer with 2014 cull on the agenda

The Greens' TAMS Minister has advised us a cull will go ahead next year, a determination that has been made before kangaroo counts have even taken place.

The Alphadog AnimalArmy charity has invested a great deal of time and expense in producing a comprehensive submission for a translocation trial - all at the Minister's request after his public push for translocation.

The pursuit of a cull involves hundreds of people and is a year-round effort, not a one-month exercise.  Through FOI, we are seeking disclosure of the full costs associated with the annual cull; a figure we believe is likely to be closer to $1 million than the $270,000 that has previously been reported.

We will continue to put pressure on the Minister to see that translocation is adopted as a responsible alternative to cruel and costly culls.

See Canberra Times news article from 18 December here.  For more, please see our News & Media page.
