De­light­ful dog adop­tion drive

Southern Telegraph - - News - Chloe Fraser

K9 Dog Res­cue group is hold­ing an adop­tion day on Satur­day, De­cem­ber

8, in hope of find­ing fur­ever homes for about 27 aban­doned pooches.

K9 Dog Res­cue pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer Ja­nine Matthews said the friendly tail-wag­gers were in des­per­ate need of lov­ing fam­i­lies.

“It’s giv­ing them a sec­ond chance at life and the dogs know that,” she said.

“What you give to the dog you get back ten­fold.

“Hope­fully by the end of the day lots of dogs will have found their spe­cial hu­mans.”

K9 Res­cue will also be col­lect­ing do­na­tions to help fund up­grades to its old ken­nel block to en­sure dogs are kept com­fort­able dur­ing their stay.

“We want to find homes for some of our more long-term dogs, but also raise some funds to up­grade our old ken­nel yards that are more than 20 years old,” Ms Matthews said.

“The dogs can’t spend another win­ter in de­te­ri­o­rated and flood­ing ken­nels.”

The adop­tion day will in­clude fun for the whole fam­ily with stalls, ken­nel tours, free face paint­ing, lucky dip, a sausage siz­zle, Santa pic­tures and a dog pa­rade.
