To the dogs and dog-lovers at the Refuge Home, here are some holiday pictures from Savi.
Martha Allen, one of our volunteers, decided running the City to Surf would be an ideal way to get fit and raise funds for our dogs at the same time. When Martha first started her training in January she couldn't run more than 1km without stopping but she was determined to complete the 21km half marathon.
Hi, we adopted Stella in July, she was so full of beans we chose to rename her Zipper - or Zip for short. (We also already had a friend named Stella!)
Holly was one of the most nervous dogs we'd ever seen when she arrived at our home over 12 months ago. For the first few months she just sat in her kennel, shaking and avoiding eye contact with staff and volunteers.
Hi... this is an update from Maggie. My old name was Collie - my owner popped in to the Shenton Park Dogs Home just for a look, and left two and a half hours later with me. That was back in 2003, when I was a funny looking 4-month old and got left at the front gate of the Dogs Home.
Bert is a lovely playful and affectionate dog. The staff and volunteers have done a great job on his basic obedience training. He occasionally surprises Gerry by suddenly sitting or lying when Gerry accidentally makes a hand signal!
We thought we would let you all know what happened after we took Arthur (Big Red) and Tucker (Lacey) home from the shelter in February 2009.
Smart t-shirts with our new logo are now available for sale at the Dogs' Home. Designed in classic black to make our new logo stand out these t-shirts look great whether you're walking the dog or out shopping and by purchasing one you'll be helping to promote our home.
Thanks to the Sunset Beach Girl Guides our dogs have been devouring special cookies made with love. Wanting to learn to bake (as well as treating our dogs) the girls down loaded dog recipes off the internet and went to work in the kitchen.
Hi, staff at Shenton Park. I'm forwarding a photo of Barney. You re-homed him to me in May and he has settled into life with me very smoothly. It is as if he has been here all his life. He is great company for me and I'm walking a lot more than I was before he came along.
