President’s message

LFA President, Nichola Donovan, shared the following message in the LFA 2013 Year In Review.

Personally, and on behalf of LFA, I’d like to express my sincere thanks to the amazing team of people who make LFA the progressive, friendly and active organisation it is. This especially includes: our current and former Executive; our legal and administrative Clinic volunteers; our project volunteers; and our everyday members, without whose continuing financial and communications support we would be unable to operate. Our continuing thanks also to Kindness Trust for providing us with a lovely ‘home base’ and meeting space in Kindness House. Here’s to consolidating our 2013 achievements and growing more active for the animals in 2014!

Companion Animals

Despite the happiness we see in the lives of some companion animals, the stark reality for Australia’s less fortunate cats and dogs should not be overlooked.

Unrestricted breeding, poor identification and a lack of regulation of pet shops and ‘backyard breeders’ are just some of the problems leading to the deaths of nearly 200,000 ‘surplus’ cats and dogs in Australia each year.

Increased law enforcement in the areas of early de-sexing and identification (such as a point-of-sale registration scheme) coupled with better education about ‘impulse’ buying, would lead to a marked fall in the over-population of our cherished pet species.
