These oldies need our compassion and care the most
and I feel we must try and unshackle the self-centred
thinking about the pain we will feel when we lose them
and reach out to them in their time of need and give
them pleasure and happiness in their remaining years.
To draw attention to some of these grandmas and
grandpas we have commenced a fundraiser on ‘Every
Day Hero’ ( see details on page 19 ) with Hutch our
Grandpa Boy our 16yo who was to be euthanized at the
pound. This little man has no life threatening illness – he
is just old. So many of our mature dogs are like this and
are just looking for a warm cosy bed, some good food
and a little compassion and usually some medication to
keep them going. Is that too much to ask?
Our handsome cover boy Vin Diesel (8yo) has been
with us a while. He has learnt to play with toys and
balls by himself to keep himself entertained. He has
had to adjust to loneliness and make the best of it, but
with his bright personality and contagious smile, surely
he will win someone’s heart and find his human mate?
He is true to his breed, clever, busy, active and quick to
learn. Jack Russell’s are always there for the moment.
Come and meet him at Doggiewood.

Please Adopt me…. A story by DR Volunteer Marg Iveson
Breed: Pomeranian x Italian Greyhound Where is my
Age: 1-2yrs Weight: 5kgs Sex: Male forever family?
It’s no exaggeration to say dear little Crash Bandicoot
could easily be the life of the party. With his lust for life,
he will charm his way into the hearts of all who have the
pleasure of knowing him. He loves playing with other
dogs, he is after all himself, an exuberant young dog,
longing to do young doggie things. When chasing a ball
his slim, sleek body is a joy to behold.
Crash’s passion though is jumping, and jumping HIGH.
How wonderful he would be on an agility course, I can
picture him now, taking first prize. Secure fencing for this
small athlete is a must! If you are seeking a calm, sweet
Crash is pictured with Kennel hand Cara natured, loving, active, handsome doggie, look into those
eyes, Crash ticks all the boxes.
I have found that he loves everyone but is not needy of
attention. He is happy to settle away from the bustle of
people and other dogs, and sleep peacefully after his
meal. He would love a family willing to take him for long
walks and encourage his athletic pursuits.The rewards
would be the extreme pleasure of gaining his love and
devotion, what could be more precious.
Wishing you love and the family you deserve gorgeous

We ask DR Volunteer Greg Ross about
one of his DR favourites Riley…
What is Riley like? Riley is a no fuss
dog always in the back ground and shy of
those he doesn't know. But I can assure
you if you are a patient, gentle and
understanding person this guy will repay
you back in love and loyalty. I have seen
this on many occasions at the shelter
when he greets those he knows.
Riley’s greatest loves are? Riley loves
to chase a thrown ball and I would
imagine he would suit an active person.
He also loves the water.
What sort of family would suit him?
He is a great little mate and would make
some family a very faithful, loving pet, he
just needs a little time to get to know you
for his true, gentle personality and the
loving dog I know, to shine through. So a
family with patience and empathy. Also
an active family who likes to walk or run.

Compiled by Roland Briefrel CRUELTY AND JUSTICE A CONTRADICTION
OF AUSTRALIAN VALUES
If there was ever a need to highlight the arrogance and Cartoons by
inconsistencies of human behaviour, especially as it Ryley Miller
pertains to animal welfare, then the events of 2015
provide a sense of urgency. This time it goes beyond the
hypocrisy of claiming we love animals as we chow down
on the latest beef burger extravaganza from our
preferred fast food outlet! Yet again, Animals Australia
has been forced to reveal evidence of animal cruelty in
the live animal export trade, this time to Vietnam. In their
report they stated the following (and this might be the
time for little children to return to Winnie the Pooh):

this would happen to Australian animals exported to the
region. Yet we are constantly told by the industry and
parliamentarians that there are rules in place to prevent
These rules, known as the Exporter Supply Chain
Assurance System (ESCAS), simply do not work. Yet trying
to get an admission of this fact from the industry and their
acolyte politicians is impossible, in spite of the industry’s
own admission that the behaviour described above,
happened not once, not twice, but thousands of times over.
JULY 2015 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 13
It was not until March 2015 after two years and thousands of sledge hammered Australian
cattle later that the industry, so devoted to live exports, recognised that there was a serious
problem. And what was their response? An end to the live export trade? Well….no, it was a
six point plan. A plan which in effect is a one-point plan. To see the reasons why go to:
The fact that five out of six points in the industry’s To the average law-abiding citizen, the presence of

begets violence against other human beings.
However, juxtaposed against this horror, is the glimmer
of hope for animal welfare advocates, at least in NSW,
with the election to the Upper House of State parliament in
March, of Mark Pearson from The Animal Justice Party.
Putting aside the vision of an animal friendly MP sitting
alongside members of The Shooters and Fishers Party,
Mr Pearson now has the opportunity and responsibility to
make a difference in NSW in animal welfare.
Mr Pearson, a former executive director of Animal
Liberation Australia, will oppose a planned crackdown on
activists who break into farms to secretly film suspected
animal cruelty, he will fight to oppose cruelty in the
kangaroo meat trade and seek a ban on battery egg
farming. He is also an advocate of action against puppy

December here are my tips to celebrate
a really cool Chrissie in July….
Can I have 1. Get Mum to bring out all your

forget the tree - how about a pot
plant or even a Gum tree branch!
2. Help Mum to bake some extra
yummy shortbread or ginger bread
biscuits or a Christmas pudding with
3. Add twinkling Christmas lights.
4. Invite some friends (& their doggies).
Set the theme by playing your favorite Chrissie carols. Add
the warmth of a fire or glowing heater. I love Christmas...
5. Have a ‘secret Santa’ theme & each guest brings a gift to put
under the tree. (don’t forget a gift for your doggie too.)

DESEXING YOUR KITTY -
HELP FOR THOSE IN NEED!
Compiled by Deborah Rouse
There are many benefits for desexing your kitty – the major reason is to reduce the mass annual killing of cats in
pounds, shelters and at vets across Australia each year.
The most commonly referenced number is 250,000 for cats and dogs euthanized (unnecessarily killed) across
Australia each year.
Australia should be ashamed, as the UK rate is about a tenth of ours - 25,000, for a nation that has a population
ten times the size of ours! What is going on?
• It is an urban myth that a female cat should be allowed to have one litter.
• It is also an urban myth that a male cat’s testicles are somehow connected to its owner’s, although
psychologically should perhaps be recognised... but still treated ;)
Desexing is the most powerful step you can take to decrease the number of kitties killed each year, and
make an impact on the number that find themselves in pounds and shelters through no fault of their own.
Yes there is some discomfort for your kitty – and you will need to organise, deliver, pick up and keep an eye on
your recovering pet.
If you are not able to afford the costs, don’t put it off:
• shop around – the costs vary from vet to vet, some vets will offer discounts to regular clients,
those clients they know are in need, and also if you have rescued the animal (apologies to these
champion vets who are so kind in offering discounts, and who are making their $ contribution to
animal welfare – also you must be comfortable with any vet you choose who will responsibly look
after your furr-child)
• also contact the National Desexing Network, an Australian national organisation
