Tassie, take a bow-wow-wow

Thank you overwhelming generosity of the Tasmanian dog-loving public who gave generously to our recent Dogs’ Homes annual Christmas Appeal.

The appeal raised an unprecedented $134,000 — and it all goes directly to caring for the approx. 3,000 dogs that find themselves in need of our help each year. Although we fell short of our $150,000 target for the appeal, which ran from December 1 to February 15, we can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support.

When you donate, you’re not just supporting a shelter; you’re saving lives and giving beautiful dogs a second chance when they need it most.
Who knows what would happen to them if you were not supporting them.

We are incredibly grateful for every single cent that was donated, especially in light of the ongoing cost of living crisis that has us all tightening our belts.

As you know, our staff and resources are stretched to capacity, and we are concerned about our future. We are still worried about and our ongoing sustainability, but we hope that generous dog-loving Tasmanians like you, will continue to keep our doors open, now and into the future.

In addition to monetary donations, thank you for the donations of supplies, food, toys, treats, and more. These have been invaluable in easing the financial strain of caring for our dogs. Your support ensures that Tasmanian dogs in need have everything they need to thrive.

Thank you for being a vital part of our mission.
