Fund-raising dinner for Animal Aid (Victorian Bushfires)

One of the organisations that’s doing a great deal to help animals (and their owners) affected by the recent bushfires is Animal Aid.

Animal Aid are providing numerous services including accommodation for small animals, food and bedding for small animals, a list of people able to provide agistment for large animals, and veterinary care.

Immediately after the worst fires on Saturday 7 February, Animal Aid were seeking donations of food, blankets, etc. I’m pleased to say they received so much of that stuff that they are now asking people to hold those supplies for future weeks, because they have run out of space to store it!

However, what they do still need, is more cash to fund their operations. Of course they are happy to take ordinary donations at their website or by phone – (03) 9739 0300; but there is also a very special dinner happening at Leonda by the Yarra in Hawthorn, on Sunday 1 March.

Tickets are $120 a head, which includes canapés on arrival, live entertainment, 3 course meal, unlimited red and white wine, beer and soft drinks, and most importantly, a warm fuzzy feeling for helping our warm fuzzy friends!

What a perfect way to wind down after the Guide Dogs Victoria Open Day – I hope you can make it! Details below, bookings via trybooking.com.la.

Cheers,
Steven

Bushfires
This episode was put to bed before the Victorian bushfires struck. However our intro, outro and a few of the other little bits (including the cute German Shepherd puppy) were shot in Kinglake – one of the worst affected areas.
A couple of dog-related bushfire bits:
