A Helping Hand, The Aussie Way: Cat Rescue by Sue Hedley (Saving Animals from Euthanasia) is featured on the cover of the Great Northern White and Yellow Pages

Ozzi Cat received an inspirational article about a recognition of cat rescue activities and Sue Hedley, a founder of Saving Animals from Euthanasia (SAFE). As a recognition of her passion and determination to ensure no companion animal is euthanised due to homelessness, Sue was featured on the cover of the Great Northern White and Yellow Pages.

Thanks to Roxanne Millar for sharing this story with Ozzi Cat Magazine readers!

Cats needing a new home are set to get a boost in Western Australia, following the selection of leading animal rescuer Sue Hedley for the cover of the Great Northern White and Yellow Pages.

Sue, founder of Saving Animals from Euthanasia (SAFE), is selected for the cover of the book, which will be distributed to every house in the massive region spanning from Broome to just north of Perth – putting the animal rescue message in front of more people than ever.

It is fantastic exposure for the organisation, which rehouses cats and dogs across the state.

Sue started SAFE in 2003. Determined to ensure no companion animal is euthanised due to homelessness, SAFE re-homes hundreds of unwanted cats and dogs a year, placing all charges in foster care until permanent living arrangements can be made for them.

Sue was inspired to start the organisation after noticing the number of homeless pets in Western Australian communities. In nine short years she has built it into a state-wide force with branches in 11 regions, reaching from Albany in the south to Broome in the north.

Sue wakes at 4am every day to run SAFE and the strong volunteer program at its heart. Aiming to reduce isolation in country and mining communities, Sue inspires many volunteers to join SAFE and benefit from its social opportunities. She also helps the community understand that it can be a positive outcome for pets when they are re-homed after their owners’ circumstances have changed.

“SAFE is my passion and this type of recognition is such a boost not only for myself but for all our volunteers who work tirelessly to save animals’ lives. I hope that when the phone directory lands on doorsteps throughout the region, it encourages people to support us to reach our aim of zero euthanasia for re-homeable pets,” Sue said.

Each year, Sensis, the publisher of the White Pages ® and Yellow Pages ®, recognises the efforts of local people in their communities by celebrating their achievements on the cover of its books.

The theme for this year’s covers, A Helping Hand, The Aussie Way, was inspired by the thousands of Australians who go above and beyond to help someone in need, or their local community when times are tough.

White Pages ® Product Manager Sarah Simpson said, “Australians have always banded together in times of need – it’s the Aussie way. No matter what the circumstances are, there’s never any questions asked – we just get in and get the job done.

“In this year’s Covers Program, we’re delighted to recognise and celebrate Aussies who have lent a helping hand when someone has needed it most.”

“Sue has set a fantastic example and it is fitting that she has been recognised on the cover of the Great Northern White Pages ® and Yellow Pages ®.”
