Pounds and shelter and rescue organisations
currently rehome and care for unwanted dogs in WA (dogs that are stray
or have been abandoned or surrendered).
is estimated that rescue and shelter organisations rehome 3200 dogs a
year in WA, while local government pounds rehome 1200 dogs a year.
Unfortunately, not all dogs are rehomed.
State Government is committed to stop puppy farming and reducing the
number of unwanted dogs. This is aimed at ensuring a better life for our
companion animals and improving the welfare of all animals.
