I would like to say thank you to both Tracy and Meg, who steered us to Rivers, we have added an s. After a period, when she was not sure what she could do, where she allowed to go. A period of, when we lifted our hands, or shifted our feet, didn’t mean getting hit, she settled. Now I have a shadow – about a nose half a step behind me.
I just want you all to know that I love my new home and my new family! I would like to thank all the lovely carers and staff who looked after me and gave me lots of love.
Simba came to us two weeks ago and I cant believe that this dog wasn't adopted sooner! - we are so lucky he wasn't.
It's been over a year since I got adopted and life couldn't be better!
In January and June of this year we had the privilege to adopt two wonderful, loving dogs. The first mischievous dog was Master Murphy Murray, the wolfhound. He brought us so much joy with his antics that we decided to adopt a great Dane who was originally called Fernando ( he is now called Manfred).
Peppi is a almost 12 year old Staffy cross (we have decided that his birthday will be in November to coincide with Uta’s birthday as our first dog Shyla’s birthday is the same date as Sven’s) that we adopted from Shenton Park in March 2011. Peppi does not seem to be aware that he’s not a puppy anymore. He is fit and healthy and still enthusiastically joins his sister Shyla for two one-hour walks every day.
I know we only brought Xavier home last week but wanted you to know he has settled very well, even accepted new name of Isaac or Zac for short.
I picked up Budd aka Joe a lifetime ago around Aug 2005. I’d been wanting a companion while my husband was away and had searched the web and various shelters. I’d selected two dogs at Shenton Park, one was Joe the other was Suzy, who had already been fostered. So I went to take a look at Joe, he was in the run pen, just sitting in the centre doing nothing, looking at nothing, not interested in me or anything else. I thought, he doesn’t look too full of life, but went to the office and asked if I could take a closer look.
For the second year running, this December will see award winning photographer Alex Cearns from Houndstooth Studio set up her famous Santa’s Grotto at the Refuge. She’ll be joined by a very special Refuge personality who will be donning his Santa costume so that Perth’s much-loved pooches can have their very own photo taken with Santa Paws.
A few weeks ago we adopted Wallace a male white and tan Jack Russell aged seven years.
