Doggie Rescue has a huge support network of
volunteers from drivers, feeders, customer service,
events, foster families etc and whilst for the most part it
all works well - each division being run by a separate
individual co-ordinator - nobody to date had really stood
back and objectively looked at our Volunteer System as
a whole. Our Kennel Manager, Luis De Florio, studied
the existing system and (frankly) found it to be a bit of
a "dogs breakfast" (no pun intended).......
AND THE MAIN DRIVING FORCE BEHIND
MAKING SOME CHANGES WAS SAVING MONEY.
So how can we re design the system so that it costs
us less and have trainees and volunteers supporting
and working alongside our regular kennel hands?

• IN THE SPOTLIGHT HALLOWEEN AND ALL THAT STUFF By Scrappy Beedell
Hi! My name's Detektive
Robert Cornelius Scraps,
but you can call me Scrappy!
The only thing I love more
than eating raw chicken is
dressing up. As you can
probably guess, Halloween
is my favourite time of year.
I get to dress up and try to
spook all the people near
my house in Newtown!
Sometimes I'm a Samurai,
sometimes I'm a chimney
sweep, sometimes I'm ‘Super
Dog’, but I'm always
comfortable, and always
happy for a photo shoot.
If I'm not comfortable,
I'll always let my mum
know by running away
or giving her a yelp!!!
If you're dressing up a pooch and they don’t seem comfortable or happy, please
give 'em some space! Maybe try again in an hour, or tomorrow.. And if they're sill
not happy, there's always next year. Who says you can't teach an old dog new
tricks?! My friend Bob actually doesn't like to dress up at all. There's nothing
wrong with him, he's just not into it, so we just photo shop hats on him later on,
or use Snap Chat to make him look like a unicorn.
Remember in Australia, it can get hot around Halloween, so please keep
your doggies costume light! Last Halloween, my other buddy Magic ate
some human chocolate and he was sick and had to go to the vets!!!
Chocolate is no good for us, but sometimes we forget, so keep it out of
our way! Enjoy yourselves and keep your furry pals safe! Scrappy

When he came from the pound Bazza had a huge soft

was removed and the prognosis seemed positive. Luck

look for a forever family for him. After some months the
tumour began to grow back.
Bazza needed more surgery. We sent him to see Dr. Peter
at Collaroy Veterinary Surgery. Peter operated after using
some chemo drugs to try and shrink the tumour down prior
to surgery. Unfortunately when he opened Bazza up he
found the tumour down his hind leg, totally wrapped
around his urethra and around his anus. Peter said he

With sad regrets..
IT’S TIME TO SAY FAREWELL
My first association with DoggieRescue came about through my daughter Kelly when
we did volunteer work at Monika’s when the shelter was at Homebush. A lot of the dogs
were in the open so I began knitting coats ( with another lady ) to keep them warm.
OCTOBER 2017 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 31
When my husband Fred and I ( pictured with Monika at Ingleside
above ) relocated to Lake Haven, I came up with the idea to knit dog
coats and sell them with all proceeds donated back to DoggieRescue.
Initially the Central Coast Ladies Knitting Group started with me and
Doreen Watkins, then expanding with Elaine, Janet, Betty, Lynne, Pat,
Patti (Sydney), Myra (Wollongong), Alethia and Margaret with Fred
being a huge support behind the scenes.
Over recent years, due to health and relocation reasons the group Doreen Watkins with her precious Brittany
has diminished with only me and Fred, Alethia, Lynne and Margaret
remaining. Alethia, Lynne and Margaret would like to continue Wagga Market Place Shopping Centre,
knitting but they do not have the sales or marketing skills required. with many recent orders from customers
Should DR wish to continue with this venture it will be necessary to appreciating a quality product.
have some volunteers interested in going to shopping centres,
markets and conference venues where these coats can be
displayed and sold. I am prepared to assist in training up anyone
that is interested with the relative skills to do this.
Over the past 15 years these coats have been sold at Lake Haven • Over this period, and with the
Shopping Centre, Winston Hills Shopping Centre and Wagga winding up of sales activities, it’s
conservatively estimated our little
knitting group, made up entirely
of seniors, has donated through
the sale of our hand knitted dog
$125,000.00 to Doggie Rescue.
“ This has been an exciting and very
enjoyable journey for us and it is regrettable
we are unable to continue. It would be
nice if someone could take up the reins and
run with it because it is a viable
business opportunity for DoggieRescue to
generate an ongoing source of income.”
