AWL By Your Side Magazine Edition 9

A message from our CEO

Welcome to the spring edition of By Your Side for 2017. In our last issue, we were just about to launch our Connect and Protect program and I am very happy to report that we have had an overwhelming response to this project. It has been our delight to help people get ready for the 2018 microchipping and desexing law changes and at the same time, immediately provide that extra level of protection to much loved pets. You will also read about two special bequests we have recently received. Both bequests have made such a difference to the animals and staff spirit at the AWL. It is heart-warming to know that people want to provide for animals into the future, and so important for all of us to know that there are caring people in our community. People now see a bequest, large or small, as a way that they can help a cause close to their hearts and provide a lasting legacy even after they have passed away. It is an honour for us to be able to accept these precious gifts; and it is our responsibility to use their funds very carefully in order to maximise the long term benefit to the animals in our care.
