the Moment, in tune with the dog’s way of thinking.
It is always a consolation to me when I meet families
willing to adopt or foster an “oldie”. They are a special
breed of people who put what they can do for the dog in
front of what the dog can do for them. They understand
what is involved and the sorrow that might come sooner
rather than later but they selflessly put themselves
forward to reach out and ensure the remaining years for
their doggie are going to be the best years of his life.
Neville was one of those old dogs that came to us in an

I have the worst of genes you see, I bear the “Staffy” shame. CLICK HERE
The shame is in our numbers, there’s thousands with no home.
Thousands just like me you’ll find, in kennels all alone.
My mum was “just a Staffy”, my father – well who knows?
Mum, too, became unwanted, as the last puppy goes.
And then begins the process, of money-making deals
A life of “moving on” unfolds, who cares how the Staffy feels?
If you have the cash to hand, the Staffy pup is yours
But that pup is getting bigger now, just look at those big paws.

You would have had a faithful friend to share your darkest days.
I would lay down my life for you, but you simply cannot see
You make sure you get your money back on what you paid for me.
And on it goes, until one day, I’m no longer worth a dime
The retail on an adult Staff – not worth the waste of time.
So what happens to a Staffy now? Do you really want to know?
Do you care what will become of us, when we leave our final home?

You drove away with all my trust and a piece of my heart too.

Maybe it is Milo’s gentle nature that makes him special,
his worried eyes, his young age, or maybe it's the
feeling that you just want to pick him up and cuddle all
his cares away. He draws us to him and his carers feel
great affection for this small dog.
Milo would do well in a garden environment and would
be happy to share his life with another gentle dog and
older children. With his light 5kg build and long legs
Milo is able to jump so adequate fencing is necessary.
If you are home most of the time and have patience to
slowly introduce "a life outside" to Milo, the reward will
be a gentle and loyal little guy who will love you

“The moment I went on Monika’s website, I fell in love with a little
senior white dog with the most beautiful eyes I’d ever seen.”
Natalia, Proud Foster Mum
Hello Readers, Sponsor: “ In loving
memory of Connor
I read Neville’s story on Monika’s internet site and realized what a & Polly!” the Browns
fighter he was. I knew that I couldn’t leave the website without
inquiring about him. The day I first took Neville home I realized it
was the best decision I had ever made. Almost immediately my
motherly instincts came through and I wanted to lift his sprits and
give him a happy environment to thrive in. I think one of the
proudest moments I have felt as a foster mother for a senior pet is
when I saw how fast Neville was improving. Within two weeks we
managed to potty train him, all the skin irritations under his fur
cleared and his walk (which before was a waddle) has improved
to being able to run just as good as any other young dog.
When I found out Neville was deaf I had to come up with my own “Out & about with my lovely foster Mum– don’t
sign language to be able to communicate with him. Now, Neville I look fabulous in my red bow tie?” Neville
can distinguish the commands come and treat! In Thailand I have
raised two puppies into senior-hood so I can confidently say that
Neville (estimated age 15) still thinks he is a puppy. He runs
around, plays with all the children on the beach and has been
nicknamed the ‘king of Bondi’ by shop owners in the area that he
visits on his walks. Even though Neville has no teeth I swear I
almost see him smiling. Lots of love, Natalia Siam and Neville
SO WHY DID I FOSTER A
1. One of the reasons I will always foster a senior dog Love my boy! Neville using my lap top...
is the majority of them are extremely calm, can
learn new tricks easily and you can tell they really
appreciate every little act of kindness you give.
2. Every year 27,000 cats and dogs are euthanized in Australia, many of which are seniors due to the belief
that nobody would adopt them. I’m extremely proud to say that Neville will never be a part of that statistic.
3. If you really want to know what it feels like to save a life, and don’t know where you’ll be in 10 years time,
foster caring for an elderly doggie is a beautiful way to give back to those who love us more than they love

Here is an adopters story...By Edward Ip
My family and I have always loved dogs but never felt we had adequate time
to care for one, but now that I recently retired we all felt this would be a great
opportunity to share some of our family warmth with a rescue doggy.
We came across the Doggie Rescue website when searching for options for
where to adopt a dog. We filled out the form on the website and sent an
email to Monika not really knowing the process. She phoned us back and
explained that since we did not have any dog experience, it would be best for
our family to come down and walk the dogs to get to know what handling a
dog would be like before we talked about adoption. We took that advice on
board and felt it was the right thing to do next as not to jump in blindly. On
our first visit to the shelter we walked 2 dogs, Jeremy and Pippi and found as
expected each dog had their own personality and that love and patience
would be needed. The staff were quite helpful as we did not know the
procedure involved, everyone there just whole-heartedly cared for the dogs.
We came to walk the dogs 3 weekends in a row and really enjoyed the
experience. It grew our confidence in handling a dog and cemented our
family's love of dogs. We knew it was not a spur of the moment decision to
care for a dog and be it’s forever home.
We emailed Monika some candidates and
she phoned back giving her recommendation
and then booked in a day to meet the dogs.
We met Stockings and it pretty much was
love at first sight. He was very calm, loved
his pats and cuddles but looked most
excited when we opened the car door and he
pretty much lunged in. Monika suggested we
take him out to lunch and have some
bonding time outside the shelter so we
went . He was very well behaved and
seemed so ecstatic about the car ride that
we knew he was it.
A staff member helped fill out the adoption
papers and went through some very helpful
advice for our first time dog owning family.
The best piece of advice she gave us was
that our dog's behaviour may change after
he has settled in and things that he didn't
seem to do at first, he might start doing.

Remember that pets live in the moment. One of Our pets may not be able to tell us how they are doing,
the most wonderful things about animals is how they but if we pay close attention, there are many clues that
embrace the present. Every time I walk into my house, can help us answer that question.

WHAT IS A POUND?
Compiled by Corinne Daw
I googled “what is a pound?” and what came up the most was that a pound is a place for LOST AND FOUND
PETS. A place where they are cared for until they are claimed and reunited with their owners but in reality the fact is
that pounds are holding facilities responsible for the LIFE OR DEATH of 1,000’s of our most vulnerable animals.
There is a huge RESPONSIBILITY of the Council and the Manager/Staff of each pound for the level of CARE,
COMPASSION and EMPATHY given to these abandoned pets... and to their ultimate fate.
The basic purpose of the Code of Practice for the HOW IMPORTANT
Management of Dogs and Cats in Shelters and IS THIS CAT’S
Pounds is to support the welfare of those animals LEVEL OF CARE

release to their owners or, if unclaimed, a decision
on rehousing. The Code exists to help ensure that
a person reclaiming his or her lost pet from a pound
finds the animal healthy and sound. The Code does
this by specifying the minimum requirements for
staff of establishments, minimum husbandry
conditions including nutrition and vaccination
requirements, and minimum hygiene, security,
exercise and housing requirements.

Recently 20 cats ( some pregnant, others lactating mothers with tiny kittens ) and many healthy young
kittens were euthanized in the one day at a local pound. For horrified Rescuers this was the last resort.
These questions need to be asked: High on the list as a requirement for all pounds is…
• WHY IS THERE SUCH A WIDE DISPARITY Staff training - ensuring ALL staff members have a baseline

empathy towards animals. There should be a transparent level

25% OF DOGS AND 56% OF CATS WHO rescue groups) that is courteous and polite at all times.
ENTER AUSTRALIA’S POUNDS EACH
YEAR ARE KILLED. WHY IS THAT? POUND - SHELTER - ADOPTION
• SHOULD POUNDS BE DOING MORE
TO IMPLEMENT PROGRAMS AND
SERVICES TO SAVE LIVES?
• IN EVERY POUND ARE HYGIENE &

• IS IT OKAY TO EXPECT RESCUERS TO
TAKE MOST OF THE RESPONSIBILITY
• DO ALL COUNCILS OFFER PROGRAMS
SUCH AS FREE AND SUBSIDISED
DESEXING AND MICRO CHIPPING?
• DO POUNDS USE THE POWER OF
SOCIAL MEDIA ENOUGH TO SAVE/
