Adoption, Shelter & Rescue, Welfare - QLD : Perfect Pets Profile
Central Queensland Animal Society - Rockhampton, Central Queensland.
CQ Animal Society Inc (CQASI) started off as just two local gals in Rockhampton wanting to make a difference to the animals impounded at the Rockhampton Animal Management Centre. We became registered as an animal rescue group in 2019, but have been coordinating the safety of animals on death row, and in need, from the Central Queensland region since 2017.
SECOND CHANCE DOESN'T MEAN SECOND BEST is our mission statement and we firmly believe this.
CQASI is not a shelter but is a small foster care based rescue in Rockhampton. Every single one of our animals is placed into a loving, caring environment while they receive their vet work to become adoption ready. We are run by very dedicated and passionate volunteers that work around the clock, mostly having to work in very short time frame due to the urgency of the pound system, to get these animals into loving lasting homes.
Not only do we take animals into our care for our own rescue organisation, we also provide short term care for other like minded rescue organisations that save animals from the Rockhampton region. Our aim is to also bring awareness and education to the Central Queensland area on the benefits of adoption vs buying, desexing to prevent unwanted litters, vaccinations and microchipping.
All cats and dogs in our care are microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, flea and worm treated and given a full health check before they are put up for adoption. We always send them off with a bit of our love as well. The latter is free of charge.
We also help rehome livestock, fowl and other small animals if we have the room and funds, and occasionally will help with assisted rehoming if the animal is desexed.
CQAS is not subsided and rely on donations to keep our little rescue going, so all donations - big or small - are kindly welcomed.
