It was one massive day at the Refuge this Saturday, 4 December when the BHP Billiton Iron Ore crew joined our dogs to spend the day 'In the Dog House'.

Spirits were high and it was a beautiful Perth day when Dave, Kathryn and Nadia took to the kennels. Kathryn shared her kennel with Freddie and helped him to find a home with one of the supporters of 'In the Dog House'. Nadia had a special little friend in Chai, who is deaf, and helped him to learn some sign language. Dave spent the day with Diesel and they became best buddies. Diesel absolutely loves cuddles and was attached to Dave the whole time. We actually think he was missing Dave on Sunday!

The guys were in the Dog House between 11.00am and 2.00pm and did a great job of raising much needed funds for the Refuge. We aboslutely love our BHP Billiton friends and would like to say a huge thank you for their time and effort!

There was also another special visitor to the Refuge during the fundraiser...Santa Paws. Santa (Sam Mac from 92.9) and his little helper Patrice (his girlfriend and one of our volunteers) arrived dressed to perfection and were fantastic with all the dogs getting their pictures taken. Over 70 dogs got their pictures taken with Santa Paws and Alex from Houndstooth Studio did a fabulous job and capturing some great photos.

Many dogs turned up already dressed in a festive theme, which made for a great day and some fantastic photos with Santa Paws. A very special thanks to Sam Mac from 92.9, the gang at Houndstooth Studios and our volunteers who did a great job of manning the stalls and keeping our BHP Billiton friends entertained in the Dog House.

It was a fantastic day and we can't wait to do it again next year.

Some photos taken on the day have been published on our Facebook page. Join our Facebook page to get the latest updates from the Refuge.
