Over ten dogs found a forever home at the Dog Adoption Day hosted at the Botany Town Centre at the weekend.
There is a bit of a process in adopting a dog to ensure it goes to the right owner. Anyone who was interested in adopting a dog on Saturday could put their name down to sign up.
From there, the owners and their properties are checked for suitability by the rescue agency, and then the puppy can go on a trial with the family. On the day, 10 dogs were signed up with potential families.
DC Rescue founder Cherie Baker says, “It’s great to see our dogs getting so much love and attention at events like these. It’s a great opportunity for people to see what the dogs are like out and about and amongst crowds.
“We received so many enquiries for adoption and also foster homes on the day, which is great because the more dogs we find homes for, the more we can rescue. The Dog Adoption Day is such a worthwhile cause and DC Dogs are grateful to be a part of it every year.”
Tanya Chadha, marketing manager at Botany Town Centre says, “Initiatives like these are important because they not only bring the community together, but they also open a wider conversation around dog adoption accessibility and education.
“It’s great to see families interacting with the dogs and learning about what the process of rescuing and homing them entails.”
