Shoalhaven City Council’s Animal Shelter has been named Outstanding Council Animal Shelter at this year’s Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards.
The Rescue Awards is a national program that celebrates and recognises achievements in the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of companion animals Australia-wide.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley congratulated Council staff on the announcement of the Award.
“I am thrilled that Shoalhaven Animal Shelter has been recognised for its commitment to providing quality care to rescued animals across the region”, Clr Findley said.
“In the two years since opening, the Shoalhaven Animal Shelter has successfully cared, rehabilitated and re-homed more than 1,639 animals.
As a result, the Shelter has had no euthanasia of healthy and rehomable animals”, Clr Findley stated.
“I commend Council staff for their dedication and hard work. It’s a demanding and sometimes thankless job, that is why I am pleased their work has been recognised and celebrated”, Clr Findley said.
Council’s Shelter located in Nowra Hill has a team of 10 staff who work seven days a week helping to rehabilitate and rehome rescued animals across the Shoalhaven.
The Awards were announced on Thursday 15 October 2020.
