Tech lessons from the 2020 Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards

Posted by Ryan Jones on Nov 27, 2020. Reading time is 8 min 0 Comment

I recently had the pleasure of judging the new Refuel Digital Technology Award for the 2020 Jetpets Companion Animal Rescue Awards Ceremony held on 15 October. This Australian, not-for-profit technology award celebrates innovation in rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of animals by rescue organisations.  

Having participated in the awards since their inception, this year Refuel Creative decided to become more involved. We designed an award recognising Rescue Groups and Animal Shelters who use digital technology. It was a fascinating way to discover how different groups in the not-for-profit sector are using technology - and there were some great uses!

The whole judging panel was blown away with how advanced our finalists were, streamlining processes, fundraising systems improvements, and the various levels of automation achieved on limited budgets.

If you’re a business looking for low-cost solutions, there are some innovative uses of technology by volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisations that can give you ideas.
