New Broome for lucky dogs

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Nearyou - Shan­nan Osrin

SHEN­TON Park’s Dogs Refuge Home is start­ing Char­lie’s An­gels res­cue pro­gram to help dogs like two-yearold Quella and other mis­treated dogs from Broome.

SAFE Broome Pres­i­dent Wendy Roberts said Quella’s case was one of ne­glect and oth­ers like hers had been “an on­go­ing prob­lem for years”.

“Be­fore Shen­ton Park came on board in full com­mit­ment to as­sist with tak­ing th­ese ne­glected an­i­mals, this girl may have well been left on the streets,” Ms Roberts said.

Refuge gen­eral manager Judy Flana­gan has taken in the mixed kelpie-staffy cross and nursed her back to health.

“She had quite a few skin is­sues and she was quite a timid girl but very so­cial and loves peo­ple,” Ms Flana­gan said.

“So she was look­ing for love and at­ten­tion and we worked with her to re­solve some of the med­i­cal is­sues and now she is ready for adop­tion.”

Ms Flana­gan said the res­cue pro­gram needed com­mu­nity sup­port to help with freight charges and dona­tions for ad­di­tional med­i­cal ex­penses if re­quired.
