Please help us campaign against the 3-day rule.
The RSPCA want to turn the clock back! They want every shelter and pound in Victoria to be able to kill your lost family pet in less than week. You will have three days (not eight as now) to claim your lost pet, or they can be killed or rehomed.
They say it is better for the pet: it is not. It is convenient for Councils and better for big shelter profits.
Most rural pounds kill pets as soon as they can if they are not reclaimed or rehoused. Rescue groups struggle to get there in time to save them. Instead of happening at day 9, this will now happen at day 4. So instead of one lot of pets to rescue a week, there will be two.
We cannot let them send us backwards in how we care for our pets, and how we try to save those that others have abandoned.
Please read the full outline here then follow these steps.
Here’s how: Firstly, please consider who else might be interested in this campaign and share with them.
