Carers outnumber public at meeting about euthanised cats

JUST two members of the public attended the Hervey Bay Animal Refuge meeting on Thursday to voice their concerns about the organisation's decision to euthanise 26 cats.

Despite uproar on social media when it was first discovered that the cats suffering ringworm were terminated, little came of the meeting.

Animal Refuge managing director Maree Hill arranged the event to address a number of concerns including the alleged unnecessary termination of the cats.

More than 25 volunteer carers were in attendance to support the organisation.

Among those in attendance was a representative from Lewis and McNamara solicitors, who oversaw the proceedings on behalf of the refuge.
