The Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards has announced the finalists of the 2020 Awards, which celebrate and recognise achievements in the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of companion animals Australia-wide. 

“The Rescue Awards is the platform to showcase excellence and innovation in rescue, and it’s more important than ever to shine the light on the rescue industry and the innovations they have implemented to keep on going in these difficult times,” said Cathy Beer, Rescue Awards founder and rescue advocate from Pets4Life

In its third year, the Rescue Awards has attracted more than 1000 entries across 10 categories, including many excellent industry submissions from around the country.

The Advocate® People’s Rescue Story category received more than 850 entries of pet adoption. The new Drontal® Foster Carer Story category attracted more than 120 inspiring submissions. 

“Companion animals are more than cats and dogs. It’s great to see rabbits, rats and a horse among our amazing finalists this year,” Beer said. 

This year, Jetpets is again the Platinum Rescue Hero and naming Partner. 

“Jetpets is proud to support the Companion Animal Rescue Awards in its third year,” Jetpets general manager Sandy Matheson said.

“In a year which has been challenging in so many different respects, it has been amazing to see how the fantastic and inspiring work rescue groups and volunteers continue to devote around Australia. Jetpets are grateful and congratulate all of the finalists in 2020.” 

The winners will be revealed at a virtual Rescue Awards Ceremony at 4pm AEDT on 15 October 2020. Join in the celebration and watch this special event live via the Rescue Awards Facebook page.
