“We are delighted to receive international recognition. The organisation and its staff are often subjected to trying and challenging circumstances. Our inspectors face intimidating and often threatening situations where animals are at risk or in distress. This award means a great deal to know that our work and effort to prevent cruelty to animals are recognised,” added Everts.
Everts added that the SPCA largely depends on the support of donors as they are not government funded.
“We hope this awareness will draw foreign investment and funding from international markets to continue our work on the front line in the fight against animal cruelty,” added Everts.
The LUXlife Pet Product and Services Awards were launched in 2018 and acknowledges individuals, organisations and enterprises who make exceptional contribution to the pet industry, representing the most dedicated of pet caretakers and providers.
