Help your pooch have a happy Australia Day too!

The Dogs’ Refuge Home is urging all pet owners to please leave your dog at home and inside with plenty of fresh water this Australia Day evening.  Fireworks are extremely stressful to dogs and cause them to jump fences and run.  The day after Australia Day is the busiest day for the pounds.  Unfortunately, many dogs never make it to the pounds and are never seen again.  
Also, please remember that dogs cannot last for more than ten minutes confined in a car in the weather we are currently having – even with the car windows down!  Please leave your faithful companion at home this week, with plenty of shade and lots of water.

  • A great reminder. I live near Burswood & we hear fireworks all summer long. If I know I'm not going to be home, I'll also leave the radio on to try to soften the noise of the fireworks for my little one.
