The Joy of
Written By Lori Wong
DOGGIERESCUE IS BLESSED
WITH MANY SPECIAL
VOLUNTEERS BUT NONE MORE
DEDICATED THAN FOSTERS AND
ADOPTERS OF SENIOR DOGS.
Two such special people are Amanda
and Jarrad who have given over their
home and resources to adopt senior
and unwell dogs from DoggieRescue,
to give them the love and care they
need so desperately at this point in
their little lives.
At DoggieRescue, the adopted oldies
are bundled up and farewelled to begin
their new lives with Amanda and
Jarrad in the South Coast of NSW.
Amanda says... “ We adopt old
and unwell dogs and provide a
loving home to our seniors for
the rest of their life.”
Everything awaits them,
like the VIP’s that they are
– beds, blankets, toys and
their very own, grandma
and grandpa to spoil them
with cuddles! To welcome
them, are their senior
companions with whom
they can gossip away the
day or enjoy a quiet
snooze in the sun….
JUNE 2017 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 11
To date Amanda and Jarrad have adopted 15 seniors in 3 years.
13 dogs who otherwise would languish waiting for their very own
home like so many, without finding that special person at the end
to whisper “I love you and now you are free”.
A bright new day awaits the little
oldies, full of excitement or a little bit
of peace and quiet but definitely a day
full to the brim with love. Whilst
adopting an oldie can have its
heartbreaks, it is also full of joy
because Amanda, Jarrad and family,
have made another new day possible.
Please think about adopting a Senior.

Ask not what animals can do for us,
but what we can do for them.
On July 7 last year, the NSW state government gave all animal advocates across the state and country a
glimmer of hope that finally, something was going to be done about the cruelty in greyhound racing in the
state. The then Premier Mike Baird banned the sport across the state, scheduled to commence from next
month. In announcing the ban, Mr. Baird described the goings on in the industry as “chilling”, “confronting”
and “horrific”. He also stated that the industry was cloaked in ‘a culture of deception”.
Sadly, after three months of intense political lobbying subsequently followed, sparked a backlash against Mr

to change and on the 8th May Willy had an operation

Breed: Foxy x Sex: Male
Age: 5yrs Weight: 6.3kgs
Felix is very social with other
dogs and easy to handle. Felix is
a great ball player. Felix came

is starting to have hair regrowth.
He is a very affectionate dog and
loves to snuggle in the bed
“ Felix sure knows the way to
your heart! He is such a well
mannered little boy, who sits and
begs for his dinner and for the
occasional treat! Everyone who
meets him falls in love with his
beautiful nature.” Martha,
DoggieRescue Kennel Hand
Sponsor: “ You deserve a lot of love!” Margot Cuthill
It s a year today that we found Jack formerly known as
Puddles, or rather he found us when we took him for a walk
at Monika's Doggie Rescue. He was extremely nervous and
fearful then. He’s very happy now, always wagging his tail,
so I hope he's happy with his choice!
He's absolutely gorgeous and everyone loves him.
The photo was taken last night, he sits under his girlfriend's
balcony and waits and waits and waits. She is a Beagle.
He 's a very level-headed and faithful dog!!
Monika, thank you for saving Jack. He's adorable and we
are very lucky to have him. Margot Cuthill
If anyone reading this magazine likes the look of our boy
Jack, consider adopting Felix our sponsor doggie if you
can. His story appears above. He's a wonderful little Foxy!
He needs a home. To meet Felix call 9486-3133.
