How Wildlife Organisations can help achieve G2Z in their community 

Limiting the numbers of stray and abandoned cats and dogs and increasing responsible ownership of cats and dogs will help prevent pets from impacting on local wildlife. This can be done in a number of ways:

Work cooperatively in a local or state stakeholder coalition to develop responsible breeding legislation.

Support desexing subsidy programs for cats and dogs.  

Write to, or visit, local Councillors and Members of Parliament to request that legislation be introduced to require all kittens to be desexed prior to sale or transfer,  to prevent unwanted and abandoned cats and kittens which impact on wildlife and cause unnecessary strain on community resources. Support desexing prior to rehoming of all cats and dogs from pounds, shelters and rescue groups. See sample letters.

Publish how to keep cats dogs and wildlife safe through links on your website or in newsletters. There are now many different ways to prevent cats escaping from their yards to roam and attack wildlife.
