RSPCA praises council

Published:

RRSPCA Qld has applauded Noosa Shire Council for its attitude to animal welfare during the recent fires. The council provided special areas for pets in all four of its evacuation centres.

“In previous emergencies some Queensland councils have not been proactive when it came to the welfare of pets, so it’s terrific to see Noosa upping the ante,” said RSPCA Qld spokesperson Michael Beatty.

RSPCA Qld’s Noosa Animal Care Centre Manager Nicole Cleary also praised the council.

“The staff were fantastic and the fact that residents were allowed to keep their pets at all evacuation centres was terrific. Our Noosa care centre was also able to help out. We took a number of animals from the Leisure centre and that helped free up some extra space. Altogether we took 12 cats, 6 dogs, 2 love birds and one Siamese fighting fish! We were also able to provide cat and dog food, litter and trays, blankets and towels and general animal support.”

For Ms Cleary it also became a heart warming reunion.

“One of the dogs who came in was Oscar who I’d rehomed two years ago. He recognised me immediately and spent the night with me, my cats and my Quaker parrot as I’d also been evacuated!”
