Previously all records were taken down on paper before data was manually entered into spreadsheets on computers.

Manager Dean Huxley said the program would help volunteers collect accurate records from when animals were first admitted, right through to their rehabilitation and release.

�This not only increases patient outcomes, but also provides benefit for research purposes,� he said.

�This new database will allow us to generate specific reports without having to spend hours manually collating and entering data.�

The program was developed by Bankwest through Volunteering WA�s Skills Based Volunteering program.
