    Default Donations

    I just wanted to put this list 'out there' for those who'd like to make a donation to help with rescue pets. All these ppl need any help they can get from the public to help rehome these prescious pets

    I have always donated to the RSPCA...because they call or have fund raising days etc...but these other places are (mostly) private, they find the money themsleves and cannot afford to advertise for help.

    Donate to PetRescue | PetRescue

    So long as it isn't the RSPCA I'm happy to try and help
    The MDBA Pacers are also a great group ( yes,I'm a member )

    Whatever you do, DO NOT GIVE TO THESE ASSHOLES. They are NOT a rescue services but merely a re-homing service.

    We need: DOG FOOD- DRY OR TINNED

    DOG FOOD DONATIONS ARE ALWAYS MUCH APRECIATED AS WELL AS ANY SHAMPOOS OR FLEA PRODUCTS, TOWELS ETC. WE CAN ARRANGE PICK UP WHEN POSSIBLE.

    Please contact LEE OR FIONA on 02 xxxx xxxx - or email - if you can help with this wish list item.
    THEY ARE BLOOD SUCKING SCUM TAKING WHAT SHOULD GO TO REAL RESCUES!!!

    Thses people openly admit they do not take dogs from pounds. They ONLY accept surrendered dogs and they charge a fee of anywhere up to $300 to surrender the dog, then they charge another fee to adopt them. They are NOT rescue!

    In fact, I advise everyone to send an email of protest to Shel from PetRescue about their listing.

    I didn't realise that these dirt bags were listing on pet rescue. I'd love to know how much they charged for this one dog -
    Bailey's profile at PetRescue

    The woman who wanted to surrender this dog contacted me first. Within days she had also then contacted these dirt bags and surrendered the dog to them. They charged her something like $300 to surrender it claiming that it needed 'training' for poor behaviour before it was re-homed and because it was overdue for a vaccination. It was already desexed and chipped.

    Just how much 'training' can you do on a dog while it languishes freezing its ass off in a keneel in the middle of Winter.

    Given that the dog was taken in by them on the 11th or 12th of July, it was listed on Pet Rescue on 16th July and re-homed on the 18th July, JUST HOW MUCH TRAINING COULD HAVE BEEN DONE!!!

    They are scum sucking assholes.

    Wow!! that's a bloomin' lot of money to surrender a dog..surley that alone would have the alarm bells ringing (specially considering the dog is already desexed)...even so, it's still ridiculous. No-wonder some dogs are just dumped

    im going to in a way defend them a bit thats where i got my dog, and they are husband/wife with a property, they dont just dump the dogs in a shelter they walk them groom them get them up to date feed them it would not be a low overhead thing to run it would take a lot of time money and most of all devotion

    My beef with them is that they claim to be a rescue. They are NOT a rescue. They suck off the backs of real rescue orgs who are saving dogs. They have charitable status and have the gall to call for donations even though they are a money making business, not a welfare agency!

    If you think they are so fabulous, how come you are here asking advice from strangers instead of aksing them for advice??
