SAFE founder a finalist for Pride of Australia
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.”
