Outstanding New Rescue Group 2020 WinnerLiberty Foundation Australia
Congratulations Liberty Foundation Australia!
Liberty Foundation is a not-for-profit formed in September 2017 that has the primary aim of rehoming animals from research establishments. Since 2017, Liberty Foundation has rehomed more than 250 animals including a dog, rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, and fish. They have all gone on to live out the course of their natural lives in safe, loving, and enriching homes, free from any scientific intervention or experimentation. Without Liberty Foundation, most if not all of these animals would have been euthanised.
The judges were impressed with Liberty Foundation Australia’s planning, professionalism, attention to detail, and collaboration with stakeholders. The judges also noted Liberty Foundation’s innovative approach to rescue, that is, rehoming laboratory animals compared with a traditional rescue group that rehomes animals from pounds, shelters, and surrenders.
