Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development Grant

It was great to meet The Hon Jackie Jarvis MLC, WA’s Minister for Agriculture & Food at the newly established Perth Vet Emergency in Cannington last week.

The Animal Poisons Helpline has been fortunate in obtaining a grant from the WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development. This grant will allow the Helpline to raise awareness of the life-saving service that it provides amongst WA pet owners, particularly those in rural and remote areas of the state. The grant will also enable the Helpline to provide poisons prevention education to pet owners over 2024, helping to reduce animal illness and death that is associated with poisoning.

This is a big win for animal welfare in WA and indeed more broadly, and we thank the Department for their support of the Helpline.
