The Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards— a national program that celebrates and recognises achievements in the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of companion animals Australia-wide—has announced the winners for 2019.
“In our second year, it was very competitive with more than 1000 entries across eight categories, which made it very difficult for the judges,” said Cathy Beer, Rescue Awards founder and pet adoption advocate from Pets4Life.
“Our amazing winners demonstrated excellence and innovation in their approach to improving the lives of companion animals in their communities.”
Following the announcement of the finalists in August, one winner from each category was selected by an expert panel of 12 judges.
They were then announced on 12 September at a special Rescue Awards ceremony held during the National G2Z Summit & Workshops in Queensland.
This year, Jetpets was again the Platinum Rescue Hero and naming Partner.
“Jetpets congratulates this year’s winners of the Companion Animal Rescue Awards,” Jetpets managing director Sandy Matheson said.
“The quality of the entries was outstanding, and we are humbled to be able to share in celebrating the achievements of rescue organisations, volunteers and adopters alike, who have had a significant impact on the welfare of companion animals Australia-wide.”
