love from Jane & Romeo termer but I'm also recently divorced.
Yeah, go on laugh! I know it sounds funny
but her name is Coral and we really loved
each other. So much so that the Kennel
Hands (KHs) called us Doggie Rescue’s
old married couple.
After sharing our kennel and yard for the
better part of 4 years we had an amicable
separation. It really was for the best. Coral
is a little bit older than me (ok, quite a bit
older than me!) and she was starting to
age before my very eyes. When a loving
family finally came for my darling and said
they could only take her I decided to follow
the old adage if you love them let them go.
She really deserves to spend her
remaining life in the comfort of her very
own furever home and I wasn't going to
stand in the way of that.
It was alright being a single man again for
a little while. All the KHs and Volunteers
were giving me loads of extra special
attention to help make the transition easier
and I've even got a bunch of new doggie
pals to hang with during the day. But once
it comes time for bed... I really do miss
having someone to cuddle up next to.
I thought that it was simply a matter of
time before my turn came. There are
always SO many people coming through
the shelter to volunteer, foster or adopt
and I know I have met some of you when
we go out for walks together. I try to turn
on my charm as best I can but sometimes
I get self-conscious about the halti that the
KHs make me wear...

the term no-kill.
A no-kill shelter is a shelter that saves healthy, treatable
animals, rehabilitates where necessary and finds them
homes – with no time limit. As a benchmark, at least
90% of the animals entering the shelter are expected
to be saved. The save rate must be based on all
animals entering the shelter. It does not matter if the
animals are old, blind, deaf, missing limbs, or
traumatized. All of these animals are worthy of our
compassion, all of them can find homes, and all of them
deserve the time to do so.
A no-kill shelter is an animal shelter that does not kill
healthy or treatable animals even when the shelter is
Ten Reasons why “No-Kill” is good!
1. Boosts adoptions. Kennel hands
and Volunteers at Doggie Rescue hear it
every day. "I came to your facility to adopt
because you don't kill animals here." Just
as a growing number of people buy only
organic produce or cage free chicken,
there is a growing segment of society that
wants to express deeply held values and
beliefs by focusing the search for a
companion animal on “No-Kill” shelters
only. Other people go only to adoption
guarantee shelters because traditional
shelters generate feeling of guilt and
depression. How many times have we all
heard people say, when they come to DR,
about Kill shelters: "It really troubles me to
see all of those sad eyes and know that if I
don't adopt, the animal will probably die."
12 AUGUST 2016 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE
2. Attracts and retains more volunteers. In an impersonal world where people feel more and
more isolated, there is a greater longing for connection. The love given to volunteers by shelter cats and dogs
can provide that connection. But it is a devastating blow to fall in love with an animal only to find out they did
not make it to a loving home. Severing attachments is never easy and to voluntarily go through it over and
over is not something most people are willing to do. No-Kill adoption guarantee shelters are able to attract
and retain a high volume of volunteers because people know that the animals they fall in love with will be
adopted and cherished for life;
“How does it feel to volunteer at Doggie Rescue?

9. Improves morale. Imagine a working environment in which 50% of those around you die every
day. In wartime, that may be inevitable. But an animal shelter is not a war zone and animals are not
dying for a noble or just cause. Killing healthy and treatable animals is debilitating and demoralizing for
the people who have to do it. The real irony is that people chose to work/volunteer at shelters because
they love animals and want to help them. To then have to kill them is devastating. Killing creates
stressed out workers and high turnover among the kennel hands as well;
10. It is simply the right thing to do. What more really needs to be said here?

PERRY BySue Perry, a ‘Long Term’ homeless dog finds love...
When he came to me to foster he was a difficult dog…
aggressive with other dogs. I worked around these difficulties
because I knew he needed my help.....but in the last few
weeks he has changed. It’s as if the brush with death changed
his priorities....he has allowed himself to be more soft &
sensitive. He was always sensitive underneath, but had a
tough exterior to protect himself. Monika had a theory he
came from a violent household.
I was previously reserved in my affection for him, as he had a
tendency to attack anyone who came near, so I had to do this
to protect my dogs but now he is more relaxed and gentle I
can give him all the cuddles he wants without any trouble.
Perry is also blind, so this makes him more dependent and it
is very endearing to see how much he trusts me, he sleeps
right next to me each night now..
Hello Readers, Linda the volunteer groomer, who Perry loves, has been
paying him regular visits (see photo below) in the hospital
We very nearly lost Perry a few weeks back....none and at my place, and spends ages cuddling him. Of course
of us expected him to survive, but he is still with us kidney disease inevitably declines, but with diligent care and
and has been declared to be in a stable condition. the comforts of home I hope to extend this peaceful period in
He has more energy than before and a big appetite. his life for as long as I can!! Sue :)
I have adjusted his diet to reduce protein and make
his food wetter to avoid dehydration. I have learnt a
lot about the management of kidney disease!!
I still give him sub-cut fluids every day in the little
"hospital" I have set up in my spare room. He is less
tolerant of this procedure than he was before, now
that he doesn't feel so sick, but he is an obedient
dog and puts up with things. It is wonderful to be
able to give him this extra peaceful time. Although
he still feels unwell, his kidney levels have dropped
down substantially and I often now catch him doing
joyful things like stretching and rolling in his comfy
bed. It is clear that he is much more comfortable
than he was before....he can enjoy his body again.

• • • Sad news...Happy news... updates
Giles came to us mid last year. Toward the
end of the year we discovered he had
lymphoma. The treatment spanned some 4
months. Half way through the treatment the
cancer went into remission.
Just a few weeks ago we recognised that
the cancer had re-occurred. We were
discussing his treatment options with the
vet but were despondent that we only had
some 5 months post treatment of good
quality life. Three of those 5 months have
been spent with a loving foster family where
he was spoilt and loved. We are so grateful
for this. It made all the chemo treatment
have a purpose.
Sadly in early July we had to say goodbye. TIME FOR BELLY RUBS DAD!
The cancer had spread throughout his body.
His foster carer was there with him. Hello Readers,
We rescued our first son Waffle in March 2015 due to me not
falling pregnant. It was a time in my life that I needed the comfort
that only a dog can give, and he is such a loving, sweet boy.
Dumped, loved by no-one you In the September 2015 I fell pregnant and Waffle, sensing
should have died in a pound. a difference in me, guarded my belly the whole time.

Hi Kids, 3.
We adopted Frankie (was Franzina) from DoggieRescue
in January 2016. Since then she's put on some much
needed weight, and her coat has transformed from sparse
and coarse to soft and fluffy. She is a beautiful,
affectionate dog and now very much part of our family -
we can't imagine life without her! Frankie loves walks,
sleeps and tummy scratches, and following us all around
the house! Everyone who meets her thinks she's very

lives. Operating as a charity for 15
years we have rescued over 11,600
dogs from council pounds.
DoggieRescue is dedicated to saving
precious lives. These dogs receive
immediate medical care, are de-sexed,
vaccinated and micro-chipped and await a
loving family at our shelter, “Doggie
Wood” at Ingleside. We are a “no-kill”
shelter. Our commitment to these dogs is
for the rest of their lives. Our running
costs are considerable and increasing.
We receive no government funding and
rely exclusively on donations. In this
economic climate our need for support
has never been greater….
• Your contribution of $29 per month pays for food & shelter costs for
• Your contribution of $49 per month pays for food, shelter &
veterinary costs for 1 doggie
• Your contribution of $79 per month pays for food, shelter and
veterinary costs and contributes to the expansion of our program –
there are thousands more lives to be saved!
