At our recent Save-A-Dog Scheme Dog Lovers' Day, SADS launched a Fund Raising Appeal which will run until Christmas and which aims to raise $100,000.
This money is necessary to help SADS operate in the New Year of 2015.
As a (virtually) No Kill Animal Welfare Organisation SADS provides a humane alternative to the killing of our companion animals and hundreds of dogs and cats, which would otherwise be euthanased, are saved every year.
To be able to help these animals SADS must have the financial resources to remain operational.
Please help SADS to carry on with its important work of saving our best friends, by donating to this special appeal.
SADS does the work you believe in but is dependent upon you, as humans, to ensure that our non-human dependents are safe.
Donations can be made via our donations page - PLEASE DON"T FORGET to email us at email@example.com and tell us your donation is for the Fundraiser Appeal.
Please Help Us - So we can continue to help dogs like Anouska.
If you are a dog and you end up in pound and you have a compression complaint with your spinal cord, you may be doomed, unless you are accepted by Save A Dog Scheme. Anouska is one lucky dog! She came to Save A Dog Scheme and has now been provided with the required specialist operation which cost $1,200.
Anouska is such a lovely dog, kind to other animals, affectionate to people
Calling Experienced Foster Carers Or Trainers
Right now we need a few experienced big dog foster carers or trainers to help us with some of our very worthy, but a bit “cheeky” big dogs, by training them in your own home. Sometimes they are jumpy and mouthy juveniles or inexperienced in the world, and some could just do with getting out of the shelter for a while. You need to be able to teach loose lead walking and basic manners, have a secure yard, patience and lots of love to give.
We also, from time to time, require people that can take on oldies, dogs with special needs or medical conditions. In some cases we need homes without other animals. These are often hard to find.
Please note that, we don’t have much need for foster carers for small dogs at this stage (unless they are elderly, special needs or require an experienced trainer) as they are usually adopted quickly and get better exposure if they remain in the shelter.
Fostering is a very rewarding experience that not only helps the animal you care for but it also helps free up space for us to save more animals.
If you are experienced or able to offer special needs care and would like to help please call the shelter on (03) 9824 7928 or 0418 389 810 between 9-5 7 days.
