SAFE receives $5000 grant from Chevron
■ Local animal rescue organisation Saving Animals from Euthanasia has received a $5000 grant from Chevron to help continue its work desexing, microchipping and vaccinating of homeless cats and dogs.
SAFE founder Sue Hedley said the group received a constant supply of unwanted animals in urgent need of care.
“We take on all rehomable dogs and cats and ensure they are desexed, vaccinated and micro chipped,” she said.
“We have to work on all levels, from finding good quality homes to doing what we can to stop the pregnancy in the first place.”
“We are extremely grateful for Chevron’s ongoing support with our work.”
A spokesman for Chevron said the oil and gas giant had been a long-time supporter of SAFE, donating more than $37,000 through its Community Spirit Fund since 2007. “Funding for SAFE has gone towards various projects, including sterilisation and microchipping programs, volunteer training and equipment,” he said.
Since 2007, Chevron Australia has awarded more than $1.5 million to local community organisations through the Community Spirit Fund.
