SA Dog Rescue Birthday Bash Sunday 17th April 2016

Wonderful day had by all, supporting the SA Dog Rescue Birthday Bash. So many dogs out and about, the weather sure was inviting.

SA Dog Rescue are an amazing group of people who work tirelessly to save pets and find them new homes where they can live in safety and comfort. Animals come into their care in a variety of ways, and this wonderful group of very dedicated volunteers provide for the care of the animal, look after its health and well-being and assess if behavioural treatment is required. Once all this is done, foster carers look after the animal, prior to seeking to rehome the animal into a suitable loving home.
