Paws and Recover Pet Respite Program

Paws and Recover Pet Respite Program is another amazing community service that we have supported in the past and are helping through the Coronavirus Crisis as it deals with an unprecedented number of cases. It is managed by club member and Kings Cross Police officer Jackie Largo.

When the Board became aware that Jacki and her volunteers were battling to cope with more than 40 pets requiring fostering, food and veterinary care it approached her to see what assistance the club could give. It is also aware from previous experience that there are a substantial number of elderly, less mobile and socially dysfunctional residents of the area for whom pets and companion animals mean almost everything.

The Board has allocated $1,500 to the program and is helping source pet food, especially cat food which is in short supply, and offset veterinary costs. It is important to report that Dr Miriam Meek of the Potts Point Veterinary Hospital is providing Jacki with heavily discounted fees, which makes our money go a lot further.
