foster dogs



We are a dog family and animal care and welfare is a topic that is very close to my heart.

In May this year I was lucky enough to be asked to work with the ARF (ACT Rescue & Foster) on their fundraising calendar this year.  I have seen first hand the beautiful dogs that come from the ARF – the ARF do an amazing job in matching people to dogs, finding the perfect fit for their ‘forever home’.

Being asked to assist on the calendar meant I got to spend the morning with two of the most adorable rescue puppies Sulley and Sherby.  These gorgeous pups were around 3 months old and had been rescued from the QBN pound.  They were soft, playful, cuddly and I really could have taken them both home (not sure my dog would have been happy, but the kids would have been stoked!)  I am so happy to know that, due to the amazing work that the ARF does, both of these beautiful dogs have been re-homed.

The ARF uses the calendar to raise desperately needed funds for the work it does in:

  • rescuing and re-homing as many unwanted dogs as possible
  • educating the community about responsible dog companionship
  • working with local pounds to help achieve, develop and implement minimum destruction policies and procedures, and
  • establishing and developing networks of communication for people involved in rescuing and re-homing dogs

The calendar is only $10 at their charity stalls, or $12.50 if bought via their online store (includes postage).  To get your hands on one and assist this great charity, click here:

Here are a couple of shots from our fun morning together 🙂

    Hi, I’m the editor of ChinWag (ARF online magazine) and I was also on the photo selection committee for the calendar. Great post, and I loved the photos of Sulley and Sherby. You might like to know that one of them (I forget which) is now the Welcome Officer at PetStock Tuggeranong and does a terrific job!ReplyCancel

      Hi Aine, thanks. I saw the note in the calendar that Sherby is at PetStock – so wonderful. I will have to go down and say hello soon!ReplyCancel
