June 2013 Recipients
SPCA Auckland has been granted over $7,000 by the Mazda Foundation to purchase 10 Samsung tablets for callout staff to use on the road, meaning they will have wireless access to the ‘Petnet’ system, which stores all records of animals and complaints.
Currently, on-call staff have to travel back and forth from the office to review their files and emails. This takes up a lot of time and resources which would be better spent attending jobs and helping animals.
SPCA’s Auckland inspectors collected more than 6,000 animals and travelled 380,000km on callouts over the previous year. These tablets will increase the efficiency of this already incredible service.
