Grand Ho­tel do­nates food to dog res­cue

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE res­cued dogs are the big win­ners from the Grand Ho­tels Fri­day af­ter­noon raf­fles.

Grand Ho­tel own­ers Pam and Den­nis Corliss have shown their com­mu­nity spirit by do­nat­ing $1000 worth of dog food to Red Col­lar Res­cue.

Red Col­lar Res­cue founder Sharyn Banks took to Facebook with the ex­cit­ing news.

“A huge shout out to our beau­ti­ful friends and their cus­tomers at the Grand Ho­tel, Childers,

“What an amaz­ing ef­fort they have put in to do­nate a to­tal of 27 huge bags of good qual­ity dry dog food,” Mrs Banks said.

Grate­ful for the do­na­tion, Mrs Banks said the to­tal value of this food is around $1000 “but truly price­less to us and the shel­ter dogs”.

“Thank you from the bot­tom of our hearts; with­out such in­cred­i­ble com­mu­nity spirit in our re­gion we would strug­gle to sur­vive,” she said.

Red Col­lar Res­cue was es­tab­lished in 2009 and be­came a reg­is­tered or­gan­i­sa­tion in late 2010 with the pri­mary aim of pro­vid­ing tem­po­rary refuge and even­tu­ally new homes for aban­doned, abused, un­wanted and death row dogs.

They are an in­de­pen­dent, non-profit, non-govern­ment funded, or­gan­i­sa­tion run pri­mar­ily by Sharyn and Rus­sell Banks.

Mrs Banks has had an­i­mals her en­tire life, and has al­ways been vo­cal about the need to de-sex pets and pro­mot­ing re­spon­si­ble pet own­er­ship.

“As you can imag­ine, with so many dogs we use lots of food, and the money we save on that, can be spent on vet bills.

“We are so blessed by the sup­port that we get from the peo­ple of Childers and district.

“We have had 2349 dogs through the shel­ter, and we couldn’t do it with­out busi­nesses who be­lieve in us so whole­heart­edly,” she said.

Red Col­lar Res­cue rely heav­ily on donations. If you can help, go to their Facebook page and do­nate to a wor­thy cause.
