Murweh helps out pets

Western Times - - NEWS -

MURWEH Shire Coun­cil will share photos of lost an­i­mals in the Charleville pound in or­der to make it eas­ier to re­unite a pet and their master.

Founder of Mara­noa An­i­mal Res­cue An­nette Tighe said that many pets wound up be­ing eu­thanised need­lessly sim­ply be­cause their own­ers don’t know the pound has them.

“The best case sce­nario is that peo­ple who have lost their dog get it back,” she said.

“Sec­ond best – some other fam­ily adopts it. “Worst case sce­nario – eu­thana­sia. “Where this has been tried be­fore, the kill rate has gone down.

“Peo­ple are just go­ing to be so happy.”

There is only one more prob­lem: peo­ple have to know where to look.
