The Bendigo Advertiser - Pets of the week - Week of November 8, 2017

Chally Animal Rescue

Volunteers at Chally Animal Rescue come from a range of backgrounds - but we all have one thing in common; we are all passionate about helping the forgotten animals in our society. On a daily basis, this is in the form of the many foster animals we look after and adopt into loving, forever homes. But more than this, we are passionate about long-term solutions and community education; our dream is that one day we are no longer needed.
