Event fo­cus on home­less pets

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Sophia Con­stan­tine

Each year, hun­dreds of at-risk home­less an­i­mals spend time in home­based foster care with Sav­ing An­i­mals From Eu­thana­sia Hed­land’s vol­un­teer car­ers un­til a per­ma­nent home is found.

The group of ded­i­cated vol­un­teers give their time to help en­sure an­i­mals in the com­mu­nity are be­ing cared for.

Now in it’s 26th year, In­ter­na­tional Home­less An­i­mals’ Day is cel­e­brated around the world and to re­mem­ber the plight of home­less an­i­mals.

Jaxon, a one-year-old high-en­ergy pup is of many home­less an­i­mals look­ing for a foster home.

SAFE Hed­land spokes­woman Jess Wil­son said Jaxon had a lot of en­ergy and a lot of love to of­fer his new own­ers when he finds a per­ma­nent home.

Sav­ing An­i­mals From Eu­thana­sia re­lies on fundrais­ing events and the ef­forts of vol­un­teers for its vi­tal work to keep an­i­mals safe and well.

Ms Wil­son said there were many ways com­mu­nity mem­bers could sup­port SAFE, even if they could not foster an an­i­mal.

“We re­ally need mo­ti­vated and ca­pa­ble peo­ple will­ing to join our team and help in key co-or­di­na­tor roles . . . there’s an amaz­ing sense of sat­is­fac­tion in help­ing to save the lives of home­less an­i­mals,” she said.

Now in its 26th year, In­ter­na­tional Home­less An­i­mals’ Day high­lights the plight of home­less an­i­mals around the world to pre­vent the eu­thana­sia of healthy pets that are able to be re­homed.
