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.

Maggie's lucky life

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!

Barney is great company

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.
