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.
