Rescue Pets

Stroud School student writes about his pet cause

By Ben Moore

Over the Christmas holidays my family adopted a dog called Max. This is how it came about. Our friend Jo is involved in dog rescue Newcastle. She asked us to foster dogs. So we took on the role of fostering a ten year old cocker spaniel named Max. Within a week we all fell in love with him. So Mum said if we each raise $20 we can adopt him. We saved up our pocket money and adopted Max. After that we did holiday relief for an other foster carer. They were two small dogs that we looked after for a week. My family decided to help out in the dog rescue Newcastle because it is a great organisation that rescues dogs from death row. I have also attached some information about why people shouldn’t buy pets from pet shops. So if you are thinking about getting another family member, save a life and rescue.

‘Say no to animals in pet shops’

Animal rescue organisations need to exist because of the multitudes of unwanted dogs and cats that are discarded or released into the wild each year, often the result of an impulse purchase from a pet shop. An organisation ‘Say No to animals in pet shops’ is asking concerned people to not purchase animals from pet shops, in an effort to reduce the number of unwanted pets that occur every year. For more information go to http://www.saynotoanimalsinpetshops.com

    Hi Ben loved your article about DRN – I have been a volunteer for several years now – I fostered my dog Bessie several years ago now – and also fell in love – that was nearly 5 years ago now. Sue Barker and her associates do a wonderful job.
