Outstanding New Rescue Group 2021 WinnerCentral Queensland Animal Society
Congratulations Central Queensland Animal Society!
Central Queensland Animal Society (CQASI), a registered not-for-profit animal rescue charity was founded in 2019 by Lauren Batley and Brooke Lacey. CQASI actively works in the community and liaises with the Animal Management Centre and other rescues to ensure all animals in need are rescued. In the past 2 years, CQASI has successfully implemented both a heavily discounted (sometimes free) Desex Program and a Last Litter Program, called the Litter-less League Program, within the community to help prevent any unwanted litters.
The judges were impressed by CQAS’s excellent work they do for animals. This fairly new organisation has a high level of collaboration with their local council shelter and with other rescue groups to improve welfare outcomes for companion animals. The judges noted that CQAS uses preventative measures to reduce intake with education, and provides subsidised de-sexing programs for the community. They also provide a high level of post-adoption support to pet adopters.
