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: http://fosterdogs.org/buycalendars/
