Save A Dog Scheme - In Time Out Melbourne Magazine
Melbourne’s Save a Dog Scheme shelter is a no-kill trailblazer
Pam Weaver – the founder of Save a Dog Scheme (SADS) – has never been paid for her work since she founded the organisation in ’85. After taking part the anti-whaling movement in England and volunteering with Greenpeace, Pam came back to Australia and saw the need for an organisation like Battersea Dogs Home in the UK that was based on animal welfare.
“I regard ourselves as the first rescue group, and we brought along the concept of ‘no kill’,” she said..........
Help - Experienced Foster Carers Needed
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.
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.
