A Labor government would legally enforce deeper emissions cuts on the electricity industry, suggesting elusive bipartisan action on the climate crisis is within reach.

Pledge from Labor is a departure from the emissions intensity scheme it took to the 2016 election.

** A POEM WRITTEN BY MATTE - 3YRS MALE STAFFY X **

Look into my saddened eyes,
you'll see they're full of despair.
I don't know why I'm homeless again,
this really isn't fair.

I gave lots of love and loyalty,
but I guess it wasn't enough.
I know I will get through this,
I know I'm pretty tough.

I'm back to the doggy orphanage,
through no fault of my own.
Circumstances change, I guess,
but now I feel alone.

Shelter life isn't glamorous,
It's really hard to sleep.
I lay my head on my shelter bed,
and worry myself to sleep.

I don't know what tomorrow will bring,
I'm not a fortune teller.
Will I meet my new hooman,
or still be a shelter dweller?

I know I can't be rehomed with kids,
so maybe that's why I'm stuck?
I hope there's someone out there
who can bring me a bit of luck...

Shelter life is overwhelming,
I've become dog reactive.
I just need some hoomans to give me their time,
and be a little proactive

You see, other dogs make me uncomfortable,
and I may never get over my fear.
I wish it was more simple,
I wish it would disappear.

I may not be perfect,
but I promise I always try.
I just wanna be your best friend,
the apple of your eye.

I don't want to be here all of my life,
so I'm saying a little prayer,
I hope I wake up tomorrow in a comfy home
and this was all just a nightmare.

So, please give me some hope tonight,
let me know you care.
Like my post and tell your friends,
and please, please don't forget to SHARE

Love always,
Matte xo

My poor little boy I feel so sorry for you because I know how sweet you are. I hope so much someone will make your dreams come true.

We have a dog reactive rescue pup who has pushed us to the limit many times but she will never leave our family. They might be a bit more work but they give so much love. Our Missy is improving and makes us so happy! ❤

He is one devo doggo💔 broken hearts do mend Matty. Its hard for us to see you back too.. not your fault.

It broke my heart to read this poem. If only I could help out, but wrong circumstances. I wish you all the luck in the world Matte! X

#Lou #Staffy #Pawsonality #GiveaDogaHome

Hi there,
I'm Lou - but you probably already know that because I've been looking for a home for a little while now.

I'm a 3-year-old male Staffy X.

I'm wearing my red and purple poppies today to commemorate all of the hoomans and fellow animals who served in the wars.

Anyway, I'm a friendly guy and I'm pretty polite when it comes to other canines. As long as I'm introduced to other doggy friends in an appropriate manner, I should be fine meeting new doggy friends.

I'm looking for a new home where I can be the centre of attention, so older teens around 13 would be best. Little kids take up too much of the adult hoomans time and this means that I get less attention and that makes Lou sad :-(.

I would also fit well with a young couple or a retired, fit couple :-).
I do have to tell you, some men can be a little scary when I first meet them, so lets just take it slow and I'll be fine...I'll be cuddling up to you in no time.

In my new home I'd like to be allowed inside as much as pawsible, please. I really do enjoy my time inside...it's a real treat! I also really enjoy walkies each day where I can sniff all of my surroundings...sniffing on walks is a great way to keep doggo's happy and content.

Anyway, we're open today, so please come and visit me at 30 Lemnos St, Shenton Park.

Love, Lou

#ANZACday #Commemorate #DawnService #Charlie #RedPoppy #PurplePoppy

ANZAC day is a day to commemorate one of the most significant events in our national calendar and take the time to pay our respect and say thank you for the freedom that we have today.

As well as the traditional commemorative red poppy, there is also a purple poppy for remembering all of the animals that died during conflicts too, so today we're commemorating all the men, women and animals who served in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

This is a reminder that both humans and animals have and continue to serve and sacrifice their lives for their countries.

** DOGS' GALORE **

Have you been considering adding a canine friend to your family circle? There's no better time than the present!

Currently our Quarantine facility is full and our main floors are filling up quickly, so we need to find some of these pooches loving homes so we can continue to take in public surrenders and pound pooches in need, as a lot of the dogs waiting to come to the Refuge have no other options, and we'd really like to be able to give them a second chance.

We have lots of long-termers, gorgeous bonded pairs, senior dogs and more, all looking for their perfect 'hooman' companions, so please come and visit us tomorrow from 11am - 4pm.

30 Lemnos St, Shenton Park.

As always, PLEASE SHARE <3

As a charity, continuing our vital conservation work wouldn't be possible without the help of some pretty special sponsors. Zoos SA's Animal Health Department Manager Di Hakof would like say a huge thank you to our friends over at Repromed for all their hard work and commitment during the most recent Giant Panda breeding season. 🐼🐼 We'd also like to thank our partner AGL Energy for supporting Wang Wang and Fu Ni on their journey to parenthood, as well partner Websters Lawyers and exhibit sponsors North Adelaide Dental Care for their generous support of our Websters Lawyers Animal Health Centre. ...

Sick of seeing plastic-wrapped oranges? Tell Woolworths and Coles to #breakfreefromplastic: act.gp/end-plastic

Saw this today in my local Woolworths. How ridiculous.

Yes! This is what we need. Thank you, Greenpeace!

Done & can someone tell me why people put bananas in plastic bags? Annoys the hell out me & our local Coles have handy bags either side of the bananas. WHY?!?

All pointless til you ban all plastic they everywhere in what you buy. Table Magarine, Shampoo, Dish Washing Liquid, Cordial Bottles, Soft drink Bottle, Milk Bottle, Cheese Slices, Snack Bars etc.

Unnecessary and ridiculous... always choose the loose fruit items and place them in your trolley. Still can’t buy loose berries though

Please can we just stop manufacturing plastic! Period.

Do not purchase fruit or vegetables wrapped in plastic....

There are companies making timber from recycled plastics

Why doesn’t all plastic packaging get phased out over the next decade ?

I’m with you
