This is our (almost) weekly segment where we review the content posted on our Twitter over the course of the week. It’s a long post! So make sure you grab a coffee and prepare yourself for some serious reading.
Tweet of the Week
Really interesting post from Laura from The Dogs Are Really In Charge wrote a fascinating article, with video, on Using Reverse Luring. A completely new concept to me which I was really grateful to learn and read about.

Two from ThatMutt: “How to get more pitbulls adopted” and “Why won’t shelters and rescues let people adopt dogs?“.
From Brett Toellner’s KC Dog Blog: “Book review: Little Boy Blue” and “KC Pet Project makes retail adoption space permanent” (which is really cool!).

Concession cat desexing program in South Australia (available at both ends of the city!).
And from Saving Pets, my favourite no-kill blog in Australia, “Challenging our beliefs as important to success as hard work“, “Our model of animal adoptions is broken” and “Ian Dunbar knows what we don’t know“.
