‘Friends of Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter’ is a group of volunteers who seek the “extras” for the dogs and cats in care at Hawkesbury Pound.

They visit the pound twice a week to take photographs and temperament tests of the animals to post on their Facebook page of over 25,000 people, to help find homes for the animals.

‘Thank you IGA, your $2500 donation will help with costs for special treats for the dogs & cats especially on hot days, owners who cannot afford the in-pound fee & to assist with the desexing program’ – Kelly Drury Founder of Friends of Hawkesbury Companion Animal Shelter
