The Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) is actively helping the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) in rescuing animals across Manly and other suburbs in the Moreton Bay Region.

In July, the RSPCA has rescued 234 animals and from January to June, they have managed to rescue 1,453 animals in the region with the help of the firefighters. The QFES is happy to be of help as this also shows the local community that despite their big builds, they have a compassionate side.

It seems that those who live in the region are very protective of the animals. In February of this year, the Mini Rescue in Moreton Bay has gained popularity due to their animal rescue efforts. The non-profit organisation rescues animals that are suffering on the streets and in the shelters.

The endeavour started out as a small animal shelter and now has become a statewide project reaching as far as north Queensland. With these efforts, the organisers have helped reduce the euthanasia rates in Rockhampton Pound. Through their online pledges, the local community also gets to help in helping transport animals.

Once the animals are with their organisation, they will worm, vaccinate and desex them. After this process, they will be given to foster carers. They also assist in educating new owners on healthy feeding and training.

Local Resources

Despite the rescue efforts of animal organisations and the RSPCA, the RSPCA recently encouraged pet owners to put desexing on top of their priority list during their Operation Wanted Campaign. The campaign offered 20% discount on desexing procedures at participating vets. Their aim is to reduce the number of litters and abandoned pets on the streets.
