Thank you Warra and Willawong

October 16, 2014

After three rewarding years, the day has arrived when The Lost Dogs’ Home sadly says good-bye to Brisbane.

Firstly we would like to thank our dedicated staff who have worked tirelessly to make a positive difference for lost and abandoned animals and for continuously sharing their knowledge and advice on responsible pet ownership. Please join us in acknowledging the dedication and commitment they have all made to every animal that has passed through both of our shelters. We sincerely wish them all the very best for the future.

The Home would also like to say thank you to the Brisbane community for wholeheartedly embracing and supporting us. They have been an integral part of our work, helping us reunite thousands of pets with their owners or find them loving new homes.

We wish the Animal Welfare League of Queensland the very best as they take over management of the Warra and Willawong pounds and animal management services for Brisbane City Council. And we encourage the Brisbane community to continue to support and advocate for the value of shelter animals.

We believe the Home still has an important role to play helping Queensland’s pets and providing a better future for them. We have committed to continue to provide reduced-cost microchipping and free tag services via National Pet Register and look forward to launching more awareness raising campaigns for responsible pet ownership Australia-wide. This will include compelling desexing campaigns to help keep pets out of shelters in the first place as well as innovative adoption campaigns to find them more loving homes.
