    So as I read this am I to understand that some one or organisation pocketed $94,000 for murdering peoples pets? Sorry for your loss Glenn.

    this happens all over the country and councils need to step up and take responibility. maybe if all the people hurt by councils tru their lack of accountabilty should band together and sue their collective butts off!

    I think Glenn is a wonderful person doing a wonderful thing, so this comment is definitely NOT a criticism. But I just hope others will learn by Glenn’s mistakes and 1) Protect their dogs by always having them council registered AND microchipped. 2) NEVER surrender ANY animal to a pound!!! Having said this, I think Greg should be really proud of the work he and Nambucca Valley Dog Rescue are doing and the lives they have saved. They DEFINITELY deserved their Australia Day community achievement award. As well as the life-saving work they do, Greg has also helped to bring awareness to the practices of a very evil and corrupt council!

    It’s blatantly obvious what the problem is here – council should NOT be outsourcing this job / role to a ‘contractor’! They should be ’employing’ their own staff that must follow strict processes – not pocketing all the money & disposing of these beautiful creatures in the cheapest & easiest way possible – how disgraceful. Shame on council & shame of the contractor doing this!!!

    I think Glenn should run this Country i would so far to say the world.

    Agree entirely Emma. “Outsourcing” simply means handing responsibility for something over to someone who will make a buck out of it. My advice to council would be to get rid of their exterminator….errr….. contractor…. and employ someone with genuine compassion and understanding of these beautiful creatures, as you so aptly describe them.

    I agree that this is wrong. Again, healthy animals should be protected, and some effort made to rehome them. There is plenty of money for this, but where is it going?
    Maybe it’s time for the government to do something positive for people and their animals too.

    Proving Public servants are basically all the same world wide… lazy stupid weirdo’s who prefer to play solitaire all day instead of actually being proactive and excelling…

    Glad you ousted them into doing the right thing – I hate cruelty to animals…
    Sorry for your loss

      Try not to let small mindedness and ignorance affect your world view. I am a public servant who is a compassionate pet owner and an environmentalist. I am well-educated, well-read and have actually travelled out of my neighbourhood into the big world. I can form my own picture of reality from my own experience and don’t rely on FB and TV to feed me an opinion. I work hard at my job, and am aware of my responsibilities to the community and the environment as a whole.

    The animal control guy euthanaises the dogs at the pound then drops them off at the tip, daily, mainly cats. The amount of the green dream that is delivered to Council is abhorred. I have seen dogs that are friendly sit back and snarl at one particular animal control guy and he then uses the excuse that the dog is unsuitable to be rehouse, wholly s*#% If I could smell death on a human I would put my flight or fight mechanism into gear but because I’m tied up I have only one option.

    This is disgusting, I wonder if these gutless council workers tell their young children what they do to these poor defenseless animals, rather than trying to find them a new home.. I have a 7 year old male staffy whom I love to death and god forbid if someone were to take him from me, I hate to read something so barbaric as this, shame on these people!

    Good work Glenn, I am sure there would be plenty of people out there that would support you with this, including me!

    The Council seemed to be very quick to blame the other dog. Was this because of Australia’s stupid BSL Laws??!
