    Thanks for translating meaningless weasel words into an understandable summary.

    It would be interesting to compare the results from all councils across Victoria and analyse what those achieving the best results are doing.

    I can’t bring myself to say ‘only’ 204 dogs were killed. Compared with previous years, is this an improvement? Can the outcome be improved further and what would this take.

    On the hand the cats, oh the poor cats. What is happening. My view is that people are less likely to register their cats than they are their dogs. Perhaps this is is a contributing factor to the low number being reclaimed.

    How can the outcome for the cats be improved. It is just so depressing to see figures likes that. I guess one thing is that there is plenty of scope for improvement!

    THE POUND SYSTEM IN AUSTRALIA SHOULD BE CHANGED. It is completely wrong and is oppressing both owners of domestic animals and even people who don,t own them. The Lost Dog,s Home is RACIST, and oppressive to domestic animals, and the Victorian Government is also useless.
    They should not be permitted to make decisions about domestic animals which they don,t even own or care less about. There is no excuse for not trying to rehome a dog or a cat, there are always plenty of people who will take a pet.
