Our Ambassadors

Our incredible ambassadors generously give up their time to support and promote the work of The Lost Dogs’ Home and give a voice to vulnerable cats and dogs. We’re lucky to have passionate animal lovers who raise awareness about animal shelter and adoption and help us to give a voice (and homes!) to animals.


Dr Shane Huntington OAM

Shane is a strategy expert at The University of Melbourne, consultant and hosts the 3RRR program ‘Einstein a Go Go’ – and he’s a newly converted cat lover! Despite being sceptical, he let his family convince him to adopt Tilly, and later Dax, from The Lost Dogs’ Home during the height of kitten season and he hasn’t looked back. He says the experience has been “transformative” and he now advocates to help get stray cats off the streets.


Mike Larkan

For more than 15 years TV personality Mike Larkan has been finding loving homes for hundreds of dogs and cats through his work on Network Ten’s Give a Dog a Home program. Mike inspires families across Melbourne to adopt and change the life of a deserving shelter pet. His program is especially helpful giving extra exposure to dogs who aren’t always the first choice with adopters, such as senior citizens and larger breeds. His work continues as a longstanding ambassador for The Lost Dogs’ Home.
