We want to recruit a large number of volunteers this year to ‘shake a tin’ for us! Our strategy is two-fold:

  • Get as many shakers in the City as we can from 7.30am to about 2pm
  • Have shakers all day at five shopping centres (more if you can approach your local)

City Shakers
Street Appeal 2012

We would like to have shakers outside the main City train station and throughout the Murray & Hall Street Malls and along St Georges Tce from 7.30am to 9.30am and again from around 11.30am to 2pm. If we can get a load of city workers to help us for a couple of hours during the day that would be great.

We are also looking for an office in the City to base our volunteer support team who will drop off and collect your tins to make it as easy as possible. If you work in the city and can offer a small space in your office that day, that would be great.

Why not get a team from work together and shake it for the dogs for a couple of hours on Friday? Working in pairs is ideal. We will provide tins, stickers, a name badge and are working on t-shirts. We can drop off items to you on Thursday or you can collect from the city on Friday morning.

Please contact Katelyn who is heading up our support team at or call 0403 762 333.

Shopping Centre Shakers

We have secured all day berths at Karrinyup, Innaloo, Warwick, West Leederville Shopping Centre and Claremont Quarter and need volunteers stationed at each location from 9am to 5pm.

If you can do a shift on the day – Friday 12th October – please contact Katelyn who is heading up our support team at or call 0403 762 333.

You will need to collect tins, stickers and a name badge from the Refuge by Thursday 11th October.

Dogs and the Street Appeal

We’d like dogs in as many locations as possible, subject to their suitability. You must be an experienced walker to take a dog out and can link up with a tin shaker at any suitable location.

If you want to take a dog out during the Street Appeal please contact Katelyn who is heading up our support team at or call 0403 762 333 and let her know when you are available and your preferred location.

Other Locations

You can shake a tin anyway on Friday 12th October! You can shake at:

  • School
  • Work
  • Sport
  • Subiaco, Leederville, Freo, Mount Lawley, Joondalup etc

If you own a retail business you can also shake a tin on your premises for us that day! Under our license you can shake anywhere on public property that day. Basically anywhere you think there will be enough passing traffic.

Katelyn is doing some notes up with some hints and tips and a map to show where other shakers are located.

Please help us make this year bigger and better than ever!
