“Admittedly feeding can be messy and fairly demanding,
but I'm sure if I, a 73yr old can handle it, so can you.
I even enjoy taking a few dogs for short walks after

as you like. To me it is a special day out.” Marg
APRIL 2018 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 13
Apart from feeding I have engaged in a few other activities A lovely bush walk with little Merry
with Doggie Rescue, such as transporting dogs from the
Vet's to Doggiewood shelter, helping on market stalls,
delivering monthly magazines, writing magazine articles
about particular dogs in the hope they will find their forever
home. And I even had the pleasure of taking one of the
more "tricky" dogs to Agility training. Anything done is
always very much appreciated.
Another wonderful aspect of these years volunteering are the
amazing people I have met along the way, many of whom
I know will be friends for life. We all come from diverse back-
grounds but the love of dogs drew us together and our lives
have been enriched beyond words. We are also able to bring
our previous skills to the table. For example, because of my
nursing background I have been able to help out with
stitches removal, eye care, injections etc. Every little helps.
You may find yourself in danger, as I did, of falling in love
with so many of these dogs. Like a number of Monika’s
volunteers I too adopted my wonderful "Remy" 3 years ago.
If this sounds like the thing to do, make the decision, you
won't regret it. Volunteer weekly, fortnightly or even
monthly, you choose. The rewards are manifold. Please

Hi DoggieRescue Readers,
I’m Jen – I’m Doggie Rescue’s Event Coordinator. I
am responsible for all the events that the shelter
holds and attends throughout the year. I’ve been a
volunteer at DoggieRescue for almost two years
now, I started walking dogs then I did customer
service on Saturdays, now I do adoption
appointments with Monika, as well as running the
harnessing team for weekends. Through Monika’s I
met and fell in love with my two dogs, Phoenix who
we adopted in October 2016 and Angus who has
been in foster care with us since May 2017.
“ I’m passionate about the work
Monika does and love the opportunity

about what we do and how people
can help us!” Jen

GREAT REASONS TO 1. LOVE ANIMALS
VOLUNTEER AT 2. WANT TO HELP A GOOD CAUSE
DOGGIERESCUE…. 3. WOULD YOU LIKE TO FIND A FUN WAY TO
MEET NEW, LIKE MINDED FRIENDS
So, what events does DoggieRescue attend?
We attend events throughout the year in various locations, so far
in 2018 we have held a BBQ with PetO, attended the National
Pet Adoption Day at PetStock and The Newport Dog Show. We
attend events so we can talk to people about DoggieRescue, what
we do, the dogs, cats, rabbits we have at the shelter and most
importantly how people can help us. Events are an easy way for
our volunteers to interact with a lot of people and get the message
out. We usually take 1-2 dogs to these events as they are a draw
card – who wouldn’t want to play with our beautiful dogs!? We are
usually invited to events where we can have a stand, raise money
through donations and the sale of items like our calendar and talk
to people about the benefits of a rescue dog.
We are very excited about being given a booth at the 2018
Dog Lovers Show in Sydney in August. We will be bringing
some dogs, lots of information on what we do and some fabulous
volunteers to tell everyone about DoggieRescue! Hopefully we will
see some of you readers there.
If you are unable to get to our events or out to the
shelter but would like to meet some of our dogs we
can be found at Pet Barn Alexandria & Chatswood
most Saturdays as well as Pup n Pussy in Surry
Hills on the third Saturday of every month.
What events do we hold at the Shelter?
We try to hold an event at the shelter every two months, in
February we had a kissing booth for Valentine’s Day, as you
can see from the photo our volunteers and our dogs loved this
event! Please keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages
to see when we have an event coming up or you can check our
events schedule on the website. Coming up this year we’ll be
celebrating Volunteer week in May, National Dog Day in
August, Halloween in October and Christmas in December!
How can you help? If you’d like to join the events team
as either a volunteer or a driver, or if you know of an
upcoming event we should be attending please email me
at [email protected] I’d love to hear from you!

Spike is a stunning 4-5 year old Wiry Terrier x who hasn’t
had the easiest past. Since coming to us a little while ago,
he has really shown his true colours. Initially being quite
nervous and wary of new people, in particular men with hats
and sunglasses, once he trusts you, he is such a genuine
and loving boy that loves nothing more than to be in your
arms (quite literally - check out the photos!)
Despite not being too fond of children and some men
because of his past, this scruffy coated boy lives off his
favourite human friends’ attention and affection.
“Spike’s favourite activities include
chasing balls and toys, playing, going for
long walks & most of all, cuddles!” Bianca
He is one of the best dogs when meeting fellow four
legged furry companions, if the doggie doesn’t want to
play, Spike will respect that and leave them alone.
However, unfortunately for us humans, Spike’s trust
takes a little more work than that, so rescue experience
and commitment to working with him is needed if
you’re thinking of making him your new best friend.
