Retirees we need you!


After each walking session, I wrote down the name each of dog
that I’d walked, and kept an eye on the Doggie Rescue website
and Facebook page to see if they had subsequently been
adopted. Amazingly, some 60 of the dogs I personally walked
have since been adopted (including one that we adopted
ourselves, Cleveland). On the other hand, sadly, a few dogs
remain there over two years later, including Blaze, Penny,
Gunther, Squall, and Sparkle.

Background: Mark was in IT Management It was not long before I noticed the variety of other
for over 20 years before discovering he opportunities that were on offer at the shelter, and the chance
had no idea any more about the to become a regular feeder was quite attractive (after all what
technology he was meant to be dog is not pleased to see someone approach them with a bowl

initially not even allowed to enter for fear he would attack!
After I lost my own ex-Monika’s dog in 2014, and Nowadays, I am more concerned that he may lick me to death
in order to continue enjoying some exercise and rather than bite me, but that is a whole different story - see pic).
“doggie-time”, I started doing semi-regular dog
walking at the Ingleside shelter. I observed the continual need around the shelter for “stuff”;
some dog related (dog-biscuits, rice, supplements etc.) but
more often, simply related to the running of what is a vibrant
small to medium sized business. These include consumables
such as dishwashing liquid, food handling gloves, plastic tubs
for storing food, utensils, marker pens!! (for marking each plate
of food with the correct dog’s name) also materials needed for
maintaining and repairing the dog pens such as cable-ties, wire
mesh, colorbond material, timber etc. Not to mention large
items such as fridges, washing machines, and washing lines!

Below are some of the varied supplements As all of these things either need to be donated or bought, I
which are added to the doggies meals. decided to dip my toe into fund-raising, and soon enough found
myself co-opted onto the Doggie Fund Raising
Committee. This has led me on to a number of different ventures
including seeking donations of goods from pet-product
manufacturers/wholesalers, helping out with the Doggie Rescue
Calendar sales at Manly, sourcing grants from a number of grant
providers, coordinating with Bunnings Hardware and arranging a
staff activity day at the shelter, helping with the organization of
the “Money Tin” program, and recently looking at ways to
enhance our web presence.

In between I have occasionally delivered issues of this
magazine to my local vet, and transported dogs to and from the
Cottage Animal Hospital in Parramatta as the need arises. What
this demonstrates, I hope, is that if you happen to have the time,
there is a wealth of opportunities to spend some of it helping
what I hope you all agree is a very good cause.

You can be male or female, young or old, in
employment or retired, and it does not really matter,
as every little bit of volunteer labour helps Monika
and her team to help save hundreds of doggie lives
each year. To be a part of that is….AMAZING!!!!!

WEIGHT: 30kgs COLOUR: Tan/White SEX: Female

Hello Readers,

You want a puppy? Aw, come on. Aren’t you a little more

discriminating? Pets, like fine wine, improve with age. When I

think about all the dumb things I did as a puppy, I just

want to howl with embarrassment! But now I’m older Call & ask
and wiser. I may be a little slower ( a tad plumper ), for Audrey
but I’m also smarter and calmer and less likely to drive

you crazy. I’m ready to be your friend and bed-mate, to

share long walks and evenings in front of the fire. I just want to

be spoilt and loved. I’ll romp like a puppy sometimes, but not

all the time. Believe me, that’s something you’ll appreciate at

three in the morning. So go check out the puppies, and then,

when you’re ready for a mature relationship, come back to

me. I know my tummy and boobies are sagging from all the

puppies I have had over the years but I am on a diet and hey,

I’m looking good! It takes a long time to get this sweet and I’ve

got a lot of love left to give. Please consider adopting me.

Here at DoggieWood we put all the dogs through a series of
different tests to determine the dogs temperament. Our testing
is controlled and the situations are deliberate and set up.
There are many dogs who have a very high thresh hold when it
comes to kids, and dogs who actually prefer kids to adults!!

Ralph, Floyd & Steffie!” Verena what adults are preferring. The dogs pictured here have all passed our kid
friendly assessments. Being gentle with children, sturdy enough to handle
heavy pats, tolerance of prolonged hugs & having a blasé attitude toward
running, screaming children are just some of the traits that make a kid-
friendly dog. However, a shelter scenario is not natural & environment,
influence, stress levels along with other combinations should always be
taken into consideration when a dog is adopted. No dog should ever be left
unsupervised with children.

In 2013-2014 year 27,438 dogs & cats
were destroyed in pounds & at the
RSPCA in NSW alone. 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….
