May marks Foster Care Month so we wanted to highlight one of the wonderful organisations we work within Melbourne, The Lost Dogs Home.
The Lost Dogs’ Home cares for over 16,000 lost and abandoned dogs and cats every year and is one of Australia’s largest animal shelters. They provide a wide range of animal welfare and community programs and services.
The Lost Dogs’ Home is very active in fighting for a better deal for animals without owners. As a voice for Australia’s unwanted, stray and lost dogs and cats, The Lost Dogs’ Home plays a crucial role in the promotion of responsible pet ownership programs and is a strong lobbyist for fair animal laws, which will decrease the number of abandoned and stray animals being admitted to animal pounds and shelters in the community.
Currently for the 2020/2021 year, The Lost Dogs Home have:
- 13,821 abandoned & lost animals in their care
- 92% of dogs reunited & rehomed
- 2,432 animals in their Foster Program
- 141 Animals in their Behaviour program
Catmate is a proud partner of The Lost Dogs Home providing in-kind support for their organisation.
