Central Coast Council, New South Wales, has announced the Central Coast Animal Care Facility at Erina has been nominated as an ‘outstanding animal shelter’ finalist in the Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards.

The national award is a platform to showcase excellence and innovation in rescue and attracts more than 1000 entries with winners to be announced at the Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards Ceremony in September, held on the Sunshine Coast.

Director of Environment and Planning, Scott Cox, said the announcement demonstrates the quality of service provided
by this facility.

“The Central Coast Animal Care Facility at Erina is run by a group of dedicated animal lovers working to secure loving homes for rescue animals and advocating for responsible pet ownership.

“Council wishes the dedicated staff at the facility the best with this nomination.”

The Central Coast has two Animal Care Facilities located at Charmhaven and Erina. Central Coast Council works closely with these facilities to reunite lost pets with their owners and find surrendered pets a new home.

Council maintains a program of responsible pet ownership to encourage owners to microchip, register and desex their pets. The program helps promote projects that encourage responsible pet ownership and aims to reduce euthanasia rates and dog attacks.
