Animal welfare top priority

THE Warwick Animal Welfare Association has one goal in mind: to have Warwick become Australia’s San Francisco.

The long-term goal for the organisation is to bring the number of stray animals that have to be put down to zero, and instead to desex and re-home them – a system already in place in San Francisco.

“If San Francisco can do that, then why can’t we?” said member Helen Sexton.

The IGA grant of $1881.12 to the club – the second highest behind Angel Flight’s $2526.48 – will go towards helping fulfil that long-term goal.

IGA gave out their community grants to clubs this week.
