Paw Justice Awarded $10,000 in ‘Unsung Heroes’ Charity Vote

Paw Justice Awarded $10,000 in the ‘Unsung Heroes’ Charity Vote

Potentia are delighted to announce Paw Justice as the recipients of a $10,000 donation. The donation was made as part of Potentia’s annual ‘unsung heroes’ charity vote, where seven less celebrated charities were shortlisted for a public vote.

Paw Justice Co-founder, Craig Dunn was delighted with the donation and says it will make a vital contribution towards the ongoing fight against animal abuse.

“Thank you so much to Potentia. Their donation will make a critical difference in helping us save animal lives in New Zealand.”

“The money will go toward helping us with our pet rescue campaigns and letting people know about the work we are doing. It will also help with our food bank, which is the pet food that goes out to feed all the shelters around New Zealand, so it will be a great contribution to helping us save lives as well.”

Says Potentia Managing Director Josh Comrie, “This year seven amazing charities were nominated by the Potentia team. With nearly 10,000 total votes, there was an unprecedented level of heart-warming support from our stakeholders.”

“Whilst individually incredibly deserving in their own right, Paw Justice is a vote for those that can't vote for themselves. Their work in bringing animal abusers – one of the lowest of the low - to account, is a real demonstration of what it means to be an ‘unsung hero’. Keep up the great work!”

“We would also like to thank each of the seven charities who each took the time to ask their supporters to vote. We have received an overwhelming response and are thrilled with the outcome.”

Every year Potentia donates $10,000 to a charity of the public’s choice. This year Potentia staff were asked to nominate an ‘unsung’ charity that hasn’t received the attention they often deserve, before the public were asked to vote for their pick from a shortlist of seven.
