Ken­nel time for a bark­ing cause

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

MAR­SHA Sul­li­van does not mind be­ing in the dog house for a day.

The South Perth res­i­dent is tak­ing part in Shen­ton Park-based Dogs’ Refuge Home’s an­nual fundraiser In the Dog House on De­cem­ber 3.

Mrs Sul­li­van will spend the day in a ken­nel with a cute com­pan­ion to raise money for the refuge home.

“It’s the third year I’ve taken part in the ap­peal,” she said. “I’ve helped out at the open days and the street ap­peals too.

“You go into the ken­nel at about 10.30pm and stay un­til 2.30pm and I don’t mind do­ing it be­cause the dogs are great.

“It’s a re­ally good day be­cause there are plenty of stalls and lots for peo­ple to do.”

Mrs Sul­li­van said she had been a vol­un­teer dog walker at the refuge home since about 2011.

“We are asked to do as many days as we can and so I do one day per week,” she said.

“You fall in love ev­ery day be­cause all the dogs are gor­geous but the turnover is high as the dogs get adopted, which is lovely to see.

“My mother in­stilled a love of an­i­mals in me from a young age so I’ve al­ways had that pas­sion.
