In the Dog House

Kate Sheils from BHP Billiton will once again join our dogs for a day locked in the kennels on Saturday, 7th December, in a bid to raise much needed funds to support our rescuing and rehoming operations.

Vollie Ruth, in the dog house

Kate joined our pooches last year and had such a good time she decided to do it all again! And thanks to BHP Billiton’s Matched Giving Program, she is hoping to have every dollar raised matched by her employer.

“I love fostering dogs every fortnight when I'm back in Perth” says fly in fly out worker Kate. “The Dogs' Refuge Home does such great work and I love being able to support their rescue work by participating in this year's fundraiser”

Please support Kate again this year by making a donation. Your donation will go directly to supporting the daily care of Perth’s lost and abandoned dogs.

You can also help by emailing this link to your friends:

Sponsor Kate Sheils

Kate will be joined again this year by a team of our volunteers who will also be spending the day in the Dog House. And, thatnks to our friends at the Tate Family Foundation, all funds raised by our team of vollies will be matched up to the value of $25,000!
