Once up on a time in the land of DoggieWood
lived two sweet, loving senior doggies who looked
amazing alike - one was called Basil, the other Papi.
Happily Basil was adopted by a loving family late
last year (see story below ), sadly Papi still waits.
Papi is a tiny waif who came into the care of Monika’s
DoggieRescue in a similar state to Basil, abandoned by
someone to whom he undoubtedly once gave his
unconditional love. He should have been cared for a
whole lot better than the sad state into which he was
allowed to deteriorate. His coat was matted, teeth so
decayed that a full clearance was required, altogether
a very sad statement of human neglect.
Fortunately his resilience has carried him past all these
trials, no way it could get him down. This lovable scamp
has no idea how old he is, darting around seeking a little
love and attention wherever it can be found and he very
soon won our hearts. I always look forward to seeing
him each week when I feed at DoggieRescue, caring for
him is such a pleasure, always appreciating his food.
No teeth, no problem! His small face with its wide
Hi Monika & team,
Little Basil is now a country dog! He
has settled in really well with us,
even befriending the cat (a golden
oldie herself) so it's nice for the two
of them to have a quiet retirement
together! Basil's eyes and ears now
have the all clear from the vet and
his coat is thickening up every day.
We are so much in love with him and
can't remember what life was like
before!! Thanks for all the help you
gave him & all the other doggies.

CLICK ~ VALE BUZZY HOFFMAN ~
I fell in love with Buzzy before “first sight” – when I saw
his picture on Monika’s website I knew straight away we
had a connection. I made an appointment to meet him
and put his picture on my mobile. When we finally met at
the shelter I felt as if we had known each other for years.
I adopted Buzzy on the same day, together with
Kennedy. A year later Joseph joined us and we
became a family of five.
Buzzy was affectionate, sweet and smart. He loved
digging holes in our front yard and playing with his
squeaky toys, including his favorite – a little cow. Buzzy
lived with us for three and a half years and has taught us
the importance of resilience, simplicity and unconditional
love. Buzzy was blind and yet, he made us see the world
in a better way.

REWARD MEET SWEET KIM By Janice Martin
Breed: Long Haired Jack Russell x Age: 9 years Weight: 7kgs
“Kim, my heart feels for you. I see your gentle but sad
eyes, your strong but down at heel body, and your
affectionate but now distant personality. I will tell your
story sweet girl in the hope that life might pick you up and
find you new love and companionship.” Janice
Kim and Kath came to Doggie Rescue as a bonded
daughter and mother pair. They were quiet and gentle
dogs, keeping much to themselves within the busy and
noisy kennel life. February's DR magazine featured these
two delightful dogs. Unexpectedly Kath, the mum, passed
away two weeks ago. One moment they were together
and within the speed of a blink of the eye, Kim was left on
her own to wonder where her beloved mate in life had
gone. Kim retreated to a quiet place, trying to shut out her
pain and loss. Kennel hands and volunteers alike could
only watch, stroke and gently assure her.
Sponsor:“In loving memory of my beautiful girls Evie & Kim is slowly waking from her pain but desperately needs
Poppy & for Sam!” Love from Brenda Harris a forever home, a family that will include her in their home
life and weekend activities. She is such a gentle dog, and
gets on with anyone and anything. Kim may need a little
time to find her quietly bright little self again but with a
change in environment I am very sure she will get on
with life and become a much loved part of your family.
Hugs, best wishes, good luck and lots of love Kim, from
us all here at Doggie Rescue. And especially Janice xx

In January of 2015 we were approached by Monika’s Doggie Rescue and asked if we could assist in the
rescuing and re-homing of kittens and adult cats that are being held at pound facilities across NSW. We were
told the pounds were currently inundated with cats / litters of kittens and 90 were on the kill list for this week!
Finding loving homes for rescue felines can often be a difficult task.
Unfortunately many of the rescues arrive at our clinic a little under the
weather. Most are underweight, riddled with parasites and are infected
with viruses. Some are timid, frightened & withdrawn. A lot of physical
& emotional care needs to be provided to nurse these rescues back
to good health. Then comes the daunting task of finding the perfect
home for the cat.
With hard work and persistence the last year has proven to be an
absolute success. As a result of our collaboration with Doggie
Rescue, we have re-homed 2 senior ladies, 4 adults & 24 kittens.
That’s 30 precious lives saved.
We have found that there is nothing more satisfying than adopting out “We cant imagine life without these two

Due:20/02/16 mmany cats in Australia?
Australians love dogs and cats. These
companion animals are often our best
friends and beloved family members.
Over one in three Australian households
include a dog, and one in four is home
to a cat. Yet sadly, not every dog and
cat in Australia finds a loving home.

NOT ENOUGH HOMES
Unrestricted breeding of cats simply
means that there are more animals than
the number of responsible homes
available at any one time.

3. Backyard breeding Mum & kittens rescued and
now in foster care with AWL
'Urban myths' abound about breeding: many people
believe a cat should have a litter before being
desexed, that it is unfair to desex their cat, that it's
cute for the children to see a litter born, or that
breeding is a great way to make a few dollars.
Whether by mistake or (well intentioned, but
misguided) design, the little ones bred in the
'backyard' are then sold, given away, foisted on friends
and relatives or end up in animal shelters.
For each one that finds a willing home, the
hidden effect is that the 'adoption pens' at the
dozens of shelters across Australia remain over-
crowded, and the 'killing rooms' are kept busy.
4. Lack of identification
Another contributing factor to the killing of cats in pounds and shelters is the lack of identification. The majority of cats
which enter pounds and shelters are handle able by humans which means they have been owned, but their owners
have not been identified. This means they cannot be returned to their owners, which adds to the oversupply and the
"euthanasia". Only about 5-10% of cats are reclaimed from pounds.
The importance of making sure your pet’s micro chipping details are
up to date & they are identifiable should they get lost is highlighted
by 15 year old Black Beauty's story.
BLACK BEAUTY (655) AT
“One cat broke my heart this morning at the
pound. I've called her Black Beauty as she is
indeed a beautiful cat. Look at those whiskers!
This gorgeous girl is 15 years old. She was
brought in from Woodville Road, Guildford and is micro chipped, but
the phone numbers are disconnected. She is terrified of the other
cats. Today she was hiding under the bottom shelf, but soon crawled
out and climbed into my lap. We sat together for a long time, she just
loved all the pats and kisses. She is so loving!” Sharon
Although she came in looking well cared for, this gorgeous girl is I AM ADOPTED:)
stressed and starting to get flu, and she looked thinner this
weekend. Her impound period was up on 26th Feb, and after that date
she can be adopted. If you are interested in adopting Black Beauty,

MARCH 2016 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 47
One solution: Desexing prior to sale
If kittens between 8-10 weeks are required to be desexed before they are sold or transferred to their new home,
they cannot contribute to the current overpopulation. This needs to be a national approach, introduced via each
State's legislation, and enforced by Local Government officers with assistance from animal welfare agencies. It
should be included as a requirement in Breeder and Pet Shop Permit systems. Desexing exemptions should be
provided only if breeders with permits are supplying the animals to other breeders with government permits (of
purebreds, and mixed breeds) who abide by responsible breeding standards and guidelines. All pounds, shelters
and rescue groups should be required by State law to desex all cats and dogs, puppies and kittens prior to rehoming.
Well promoted government subsidised desexing programs are essential to help financially disadvantaged owners of
cats / dogs to desex their pets, and avoid unplanned breeding with the introduction of Breeder Permit systems. These
have been successfully developed in conjunction with local vets and animal welfare groups in a number of cities.
What you can do
• Take the pledge to adopt, not buy — adopting a pound or refuge cat will save a life. Encourage your
friends and family to make the pledge to adopt as well.
• Ensure that your pets have a collar and address tag with phone contact details, and are micro-
chipped with up-to-date information on the microchip registry so that even if they lose a collar they
can be returned to their home, and will not become a euthanasia statistic!
• Support pet shops that rehome desexed shelter animals or only sell pet food and accessories.
