Like every responsible person in society the sight of a dog that has been neglected, abandoned, mistreated or sentenced to death simply because it belongs to a certain breed, we at K-9IQ are appalled and feel the need to help resolve the situation. K-9IQ has taken positive action in this regard by taking a place on the recent Board of Geelong Animal Welfare Society through Jean Claude Bertoni.
In this capacity K-9IQ has been able to have a direct impact on the welfare of many dogs under the care of GAWS and society at large.
K-9IQ is a strong supporter of NO KILL in shelters and applauds any efforts made to spread the word.
K-9IQ is passionate about the abolishment of Breed Specific Legislation as we firmly believe that every dog, is held to the same standard within society, in exactly the same way as any other. It isn't about the breed of dog, its about what we have done to them.
K-9IQ is firmly against indiscriminate breeding and associated puppy farms, and will support any public action to rescue dogs from the plight of these oppressive environments.
K-9IQ is passionate about educating those in Dog Shelters to better understand the needs of dogs in their care with regard to setting Australia and Industry wide Temperament Behavioural Assessments that are fair and appropriate.
At K-9IQ we are serious, passionate and ready to act and assist. If you have any situations that we may be able to assist with, or just need some advice, we welcome any of your inquiries either by telephone or via email.
