Australian Pet Welfare Foundation works to improve the health and welfare of companion animals for the benefit of pets and people.
A major focus is to support strategies that achieve zero euthanasia of adoptable, treatable and releasable dogs and cats.
This award is for a municipality that has implemented a change which has substantially increased the number of dogs and/or cats released alive and decreased the numbers euthanased.
Innovation may be in the area of decreasing intake of animals into the pound (or contracted shelter) and/or increasing the number of animals that are reclaimed or adopted.
The award will be based on a case report. If judged suitable, the winner will be provided with editorial assistance to submit the case report to a peer-reviewed journal for publication. This would promote national and international recognition of the innovation.
The winner will also receive a framed certificate and free registration for the 2018 AIAM Workshop and funding up to $500 to be used for flights and accommodation.
