After ‘losing’ our irreplaceable Education Officer Tricia to Brisbane late last year, our school visits and refuge tours have come to a grinding halt. We are looking at restarting tours and school visits in September this year.Meanwhile our Talking Tails days for the kiddies have been running. We are planning a Talking Tails Christmas party this year – so watch this space for more information.
Animals touch our lives in many important ways, yet so few of us stop and think just how the human race has irrevocably changed their lives, and not always for the better. Be Kind To Animals Week, celebrates the incredible animal kingdom.(And remember, we too are a part of it!) It give us a chance in our busy lives to stop and think just what kindness means. With October just around the corner, now is the time to put your thinking caps on and plan something special to do between October 1-7. We will hopefully be doing something either at the refuge or we will be out & about!
We are working with the wonderful OMC to raise the refuge’s profile and community awareness of how many dogs and cats are available to rehome.We are planning to have a small number of annual events such as the garage sale and a family fun day in the park. We will know more about this by the end of August.
The renovation of the Cat Outdoor Runs has begun and will be finished shortly.
We are eagerly awaiting the commencement of the Cat Care Centre which will be any day now. Craig Cleary Constructions have been engaged to build this very necessary facility. Thanks to a generous bequest very soon sick cats will have a luxury 'pad' to recuperate in. We will keep you updated on progress on facebook - so like our page and see updates here.
Well we finished our very successful woofa promotion in July. We managed to rehome over 50 dogs over the last two months and although not all were the promotional price - many were and makes us think this is a good promo to run!We got homes for some of our long termers too like Ambrose and Dutchy, Venus, Cruiser and Rossi!
Watch this space as we are planning to redo the whole dog exercise area to include enrichment and training areas, purpose built matchup yards and much more! In the meantime we are calling for help to do an interim yard with enrichments equipment to be up and running by end of August.
Special mention urgently seeking their furever home is Keg our 9 year old staffy, meet him here.
