    The men employed to run the pound are not the people who make the rules, but they are the poor sods who have to do the unpleasant tasks. The pound keepers job is to secure stray animals and hold them in a safe place until the owner comes and picks them up. Sadly, there are many people in bundaberg who use the pound as a dumping ground for their unwanted pets, or simply replace that pet with a new one to avoid paying the impound fees. These are the people we are trying to educate. We have had massive changes in the past 4 years, and more changes in the pipeline. But it is the people in the council who hold the purse strings that make the decisions, not the ‘poor shelter staff’ who you so sneeringly refer to. All genuine animal loving people who don’t deserve the abuse and sledging. You have no idea of the ways that these men go above and beyond to save dogs and help the community.
    A disgusting article. Please remove it.

    This is a poor effort Bundaberg City Council. If you don’t want to pay staff to facilitate adoptions then ask for volunteers to do it, I’m sure there will be many suitably qualified people to do it.

    Please change the way you handle the poor dogs who end up in the Council controlled pounds .
    Council gets enough money out of rates to make sure these dogs & cats get looked after and saved from being killed ,
    Spend money and time to do more to get them homes ,it does not take that much effort ,have open days where people can adopt .
