Fleet management & Govt. vehicles welcome. Vince Sorrenti Animal rescue vehicles play a critical role in the day-to-day work of the RSPCA, allow ing the organisation to respond to the many calls they receive from the public about sick or injured animals. Funding to keep these vehicles on the road is crucial in carrying out this work. The RACT is pleased to be able to help, through our sponsorship of animal rescue vehicles to be based in Hobart, Launceston and the North West Coast. Announcing the sponsorship, R ACT Chief Executive Officer Har vey Lennon said that the RSPCA plays an important role in the community and it’s an appropriate time to lend a hand to help them do what they do best. RSPCA head Ben Sturges (above, with Harvey Lennon) explained that the organisation gets many calls each day from members of the public who have seen animals in distress. “The RACT’s support will enable us to deal with a wider range of sick and injured anim als,” Mr Sturges said. “ We are now looking for volunteer drivers around the state to help us provide this service.” To volunteer as an animal rescue driver, call the RSPCA on 6244 3033.
