Help Feed Tasmania’s Dogs in Need

We recently received the heartbreaking news that our dog food sponsorship has ended.

This sponsorship has been a lifeline for us, covering almost all our feeding costs for the last 20 years and will have a huge impact on our already increasing operational expenses.

Many of our dogs are on specialised diets to assist them with health, injury and age-related issues. Funding the food that our dogs desperately need could add up to an extra $150,000 each year on top of already rising costs.

The adoption fee of each dog doesn’t come close to covering the actual cost of operating, desexing, vaccinating, microchipping and providing a specialised diet to each dog.

Now that we no longer have a food sponsor, we are concerned about this new unaccounted-for cost. Will you help us?

We Need to Fund Our Dogs’ Special Diets

For the health and well-being of our dogs, many of them are on specialised diets and therefore require different types of dog food. Shelter dogs need these specialised diets tailored to their unique needs as they often experience heightened stress and are recovering from injuries, surgeries or trauma.

That’s why we are asking for donations, so we can buy the right type of food to look after our dogs.

One day we may need nutrient-rich food for young pups, the next week we may need a special high-protein diet for our canine senior citizens. Every dollar counts.

We need your financial support to be able to cater to every dog’s needs.

All donations of $2 and above are tax deductible.

What Our Dogs Eat Is Crucial for Their Recovery

For our dogs, one size does not fit all. If we didn’t provide the appropriate nutrition and support to dogs like Twirl, she would likely not have survived.

Not long after being born at the Hobart Dogs’ Home, Twirl’s growing slowed and she started losing weight. Her gums became pale and she developed anaemia. She needed help.

Our amazing vet team advised a specialised diet and rest in foster care. After a few months of treatment and eating the right food, Twirl thrived. Today she is well loved in a family home, enjoying the life she may not have otherwise had the opportunity to live.

DONATE to help every dog in our care receive the specialised nutrition they need to recover and thrive.
