The Environmental Trust Survey

The Environmental Trust Survey

Closes Friday 12 November, 2015

The Environmental Trust is currently conducting a survey on how it engages with stakeholders. We will use the information received to improve the way we communicate with applicants and grantees about funding opportunities.

We are especially interested in hearing from groups and organisations that may have had little or no involvement with the Trust before.

The survey can be accessed through the following bare link if that is easier to distribute: https://insidestory.az1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_1UskwTcueKML8oJ

The survey closes this Friday.

Reduced pet registraion fees.

Reduced pet registraion fees.

To encourage the re-homing of cats and dogs from council pounds and shelters, from this week, any de-sexed cat or dog purchased from a council pound or an eligible shelter will be entitled to a 50 per cent discout on the lifetime registration fee.  
Currently close to 30,000 cats and dogs that arrive at pounds in NSW are euthanized every year, which is why we are determined to promote adoption.  Pets make great companions and we need to be doing everything we can to send the message to the community that a new pet is a lifetime responsibility.  Halving the cost of registrations for adopted animals will see a number of benefits. For one, it increases adoption incentives, which is always great news for animals in our shelters. Secondly, it makes reuniting lost animals with their families that much easier and it also promotes responsible pet ownership.  For more information on new fees, please visit the Office of Local Government website: http://www.olg.nsw.gov.au/content/registration-fees
