Western Australians are being urged to 'Adopt Don't Shop' and give rescued dogs a second chance by adopting a new household pet.
It is estimated that between 4000 to 5000 dogs are rehomed each year by rehoming organisations and local government pounds.
By adopting a dog, Western Australians can help to reduce the burden on these organisations and ensure a better life for our companion animals.
Currently, the State Government provides annual funding to various animal rescue and shelter organisations to support the rescue and re-homing of dogs.
