■ 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.
