Save-A-Dog Scheme wins grant from Animal Welfare Fund

Save-A-Dog Scheme wins grant from Animal Welfare Fund

The first grants from the Victorian Coalition Government’s Animal Welfare Fund have begun to flow, Michael O’Brien MP, Member for Malvern, announced today.

Mr O’Brien said the $1.6 million fund would provide grants over four years to assist eligible not-for-profit organisations with infrastructure works, programs and activities that improve the welfare of companion animals.

"I am delighted to announce that the Save-A-Dog Scheme in Glen Iris has been successful in its application to the Animal Welfare Fund, and has received a grant of $9750 to develop an animal management system which will lead to more efficient adoption and pound services," Michael O’Brien, a long-term supporter of the Scheme, said.

"It is important that we ensure local animals are protected from neglect and abuse. The Save-A-Dog Scheme provides a vital service to the community by taking care of unclaimed sick and injured animals, in a compassionate and safe environment."

The Coalition Government has delivered on an election commitment to address long-term funding issues associated with animal welfare efforts and to promote responsible pet ownership.
