A Langwarrin family is staggered by the number of unwanted animals awaiting adoption. “When we decided it was time to welcome a dog to our family, we were blown away by just how many gorgeous unwanted animals were in need of loving homes,” Sarah Guenther said. “It feels good to know that our decision to adopt a rescue dog means that we’re not inadvertently supporting unethical puppy farms.”
Allison Brown from The Lost Dogs Home said the shelter was passionate about finding the right homes for the countless unwanted pets found wandering, seized due to poor treatment or surrendered to its shelters each year. “Every animal has a right to live in a loving home, and it is our mission to ensure the right pets are matched with the right people,” Allison said.
Lost Dogs Home staff will be at Frankston Council’s Pets Day Out on Sunday, October 13, to answer questions about adopting and owning a pet. The council runs an annual ‘adoption lottery’, covering the purchase price and first-year registration costs for the first 15 animals adopted from the shelter.
The Lost Dogs Home has more than 70 animals awaiting adoption — each desexed, microchipped and vaccinated. Visit www.dogshome.com
