Dog lovers are urged to hit the streets and shake their tins on Friday, 15 October in one of the Dogs’ Refuge Home’s biggest annual fundraisers. Numbers for tin shakers are down on previous years so far and we are keen to top last year’s effort of $12,000.
We adopted Mya over a year ago now, and she has definitely changed our lives! She can be pretty rambunctious and stubborn at times (like all Huskies) but she is also the most loving and friendly dog we've ever met.
We adopted Bear just over a month ago and we thought we would send in an update about how he is going.
They might not have four legs themselves, but a team of 16 volunteers at the Refuge sure set tails wagging in the recent City to Surf. They took up the challenge to Jog for the Dogs in a bid to help raise much needed funds for the Refuge.
Meet one of our resident studs, Spud. He's been at the Refuge around 6 months now and we seriously can't work out why he hasn't found a home yet. He is such a cuddly and friendly boy who will make a very loyal companion for someone who will commit to his training.
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Dogs' Refuge Home we decided to celebrate some of the many success stories that have been shared with us. We were absolutely inundated with contributions to the book and we had a hard time selecting which stories to publish.
My name is Hollie and we just bought a little kelpie cross puppy about a month ago. He was named Sebastion. but we changed his name to Toby which suits him much better!
I thought I would send you an update on my new life. My new owners, Alex and Emma, picked me up last Saturday. They are really lovely people and I am settling in nicely. I have also changed my name to Bear (much more me!) and am quickly learning to respond to it.
Watch out, it’s a werewolf!… That dog is soo ugly!…It’s SO skinny… What is it?... looks like it needs a good feed. That’s the usual lines you over hear about our beautiful Refuge dog… it’s hard not to react like a mother when you hear it… only sometimes do you get ‘oh… she’s so beautiful.’
In the true spirit of jail house rock, join us for Cops and Slobbers - organised to celebrate 75 years of the Dogs' Refuge Home in Shenton Park.
