Sue gets her 'fur fix' with our hounds

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 29 June 2011 | 1 Comments

My reasons for volunteering at Shenton Park Dogs Home are in many ways pretty selfish ones. I have always loved dogs and would love to have one of my own but I live in an apartment complex which unfortunately does not allow pets. I also travel overseas rather a lot which makes dog ownership rather difficult. By helping out at the Refuge I get a regular “fur fix”, I meet lots of gorgeous hounds, I feel that I am helping them put their best paw forward to prospective adopters and I get plenty of exercise into the bargain.
