    Leave a Gift in your Will

    Have you ever considered leaving a gift in your Will, to help Save-A-Dog Scheme, TO CONTINUE TO DO THE WORK YOU BELIEVE IN?

    Your bequest means a lot to SADS. It enables SADS to continue to save companion animals which would otherwise be killed, and to plan for and safeguard the future of this important work.

    For 30 years SADS has been an established leader in the No-Kill movement saving thousands of lives throughout metropolitan and country Victoria through its operation of a regional animal pound, country rehoming programs and by accepting and caring for dogs and cats whose owners can no longer keep them.

    SADS also provides veterinary care for sick and injured dogs and cats including palliative care for animals that still enjoy a good quality of life.

    More animals will now be helped with SADS being granted the go ahead to upgrade the Yarrambat property into an Animal Shelter.

    We are in an ever growing city and there really hasn’t been a new animal shelter for a very long time. With growing human and pet populations, the upgraded facility will put SADS in a position to help more of those in need, offering a safe haven for our most vulnerable, homeless animals.

    SADS is hosting its 30th anniversary dinner on the 30th May, which will be one of our major fundraisers for the building fund. SADS is totally committed to providing a safe, new, no-kill shelter for the animals of our community, but we cannot do this on our own. We need the support of the community in the way of funding to be able to complete the upgrade. Please support us – so we can save more lives.

    Tickets to the dinner are available at WWW.TRYBOOKING.COM/HGCE
    Donations can be made via any page of our website

    Special Needs - Can You Help

    Special Needs - Can You Help

    Give a special gift to a sick or injured animal, or help with the costs of preparing one of our puppies or kittens for adoption.

    Vet bills are our single biggest expense.

    In line with our no-kill policy, sick & injured animals are nursed back to health at SADS rather than being euthanased, as they may be elsewhere. This often involves expensive medical treatment.

    A donation to special needs is a lovely way to directly help our animals.
