SAFE founder Sue Hedley has been short­listed as a fi­nal­ist for the Pride of Aus­tralia Medal, an award that cel­e­brates the re­mark­able con­tri­bu­tion and achieve­ments of ev­ery­day Aus­tralians.

Ms Hedley is a fi­nal­ist in the Com­mu­nity Spirit Cat­e­gory and Broome SAFE has been short­listed in the En­vi­ron­men­tal cat­e­gory.

Pride of Aus­tralia co-or­di­na­tor Natasha Birch con­grat­u­lated Ms Hedley on be­ing a fi­nal­ist af­ter a high-cal­i­bre of en­tries this year.

“You have been nom­i­nated for your tire­less work, pas­sion and com­mit­ment for Sav­ing An­i­mals From Eu­thana­sia,” she said.

Ms Hedley said be­ing short­listed as a fi­nal­ist was an ex­cel­lent public ac­knowl­edg­ment for the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s life­sav­ing work in the com­mu­nity.

“SAFE as­sists our four-legged crea­tures in a myr­iad of ways in­clud­ing fos­ter­ing and adop­tion,” she said.

“We also give peo­ple the peace of mind that they live in a com­mu­nity where re­homable an­i­mals are not at risk of eu­thana­sia.”

“I en­cour­age the com­mu­nity to nom­i­nate peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions for these kinds of awards, as it’s a won­der­ful way to give causes wider ex­po­sure to the public, as well show­ing the nom­i­nees that their work is val­ued.”
