What does an animal lover do when they move to Brisbane to study and are not allowed pets on campus? They start volunteering at an animal shelter – and in the case of Mykeala Campanini, they turn their passion for animal rescue into a thriving charity!
Mykeala founded the animal rescue charity ‘Happy Tails Animal Rescue’ to re-house pets that would otherwise be impounded and euthanised.
After saving 200 animals in her first six months of operation, Mykeala has secured government funding to deliver Queensland’s first purpose-built facility offering safety for pets when families flee domestic violence.
