THANK YOU: Your gifts of kindness go a long way

December 18, 2015

2015 has been a year of change for The Lost Dogs’ Home. But, one thing that has remained constant is the ongoing commitment and dedication of our volunteers, foster carers and donors. It is with your generosity that we are able to continue to look after the animals in our care.

As 2015 comes to a close we want to thank some of the many people who have helped the Home over the last few months.


Walking for the Home

On Sunday November 29, dogs of all shapes and sizes from Echuca and surrounding areas hit the pavement to raise money for The Lost Dogs’ Home’s Campaspe shelter.

An initiative of LJ Hooker Echuca, barking for bucks saw more than 30 dogs come along to Victoria Park, Echuca to stretch their legs for a good cause.

For Campaspe Shelter Manager, Kate Kemp, the event raised $600 for the Home’s Echuca shelter.

“These funds will go towards initiatives such as our adoption and enrichment programs.

“Thank you to LJ Hooker Echuca for arranging the event and to everyone who participated on the day. Your ongoing support goes a long way to help the dogs and cats in our care,” said Kate.

According to General Manger of Fundraising and Communications, Kate Hoelter, the event was a great success with all proceeds raised from the event going to the Home.

“We would like to thank QV and everyone who came along to the Best in Show screening for making it such a great event,” said Kate.

2015 Lost Dogs Home Christmas appeal

No animal deserves to face Christmas alone. Sadly, thousands of animals will be brought into the Home this Christmas with nowhere else to go. Many of them will have faced unknown dangers and suffering after having to fend for themselves.

Many of these animals will need the Home’s care and support before they can go on to find their forever families.

We need your support to ensure our programs can continue. By donating to our 2015 Christmas appeal you can give the dogs and cats in our care a much needed second chance.

To everyone who has donated to this year’s appeal, thank you. Your generous donations help us continue to develop and expand programs to help find homes for dogs and cats in need.
