I know a lot of pet lovers are very generous with their time and money in supporting charities and those less fortunate.
Whilst it is important to support big charities as they do great work, Petsecure believes that giving locally can have a big impact too, and really help those unsung heroes who don’t have the money to shout about their work.
In towns big and small all across Australia there are many rescue organisations that work tirelessly, often using their own money and resources to rescue dogs and cats from death row – either from the RSPCA or pounds. These are the people who save the lives of millions of beautiful animals every year.
Anyone who has a pet from a rescue organisation will understand that it is unfathomable that these beautiful creatures have been destined for death row. Many of these pets have been in deplorable conditions, and then are rescued and are provided with vet checks, de-sexing, microchipping, to bring them to health and give them a second chance at life. Many of the rescues keep pets on the premises, but often they also manage a network of foster carers who look after the pets until a forever home can be found. This helps to keep the pets happy, healthy and adoptable.
Not all of us have the time or money to do this work. But there are few things more rewarding than seeing a pet in need come to a shelter and then leave with a wonderful forever family.
That’s why Petsecure believe in supporting grass roots community rescue organisations through our Rescue Partnership program. You can find out more about the rescues we currently support and the great work they do. There’s more about the partner program and how to apply here.
