Chance to be in the dog house at Shenton Park

A home open fundraiser will be a distinctly dog-friendly affair.

THE Dogs’ Refuge Home in Shenton Park will host events to suit two and four- legged visitors to its Home Open fundraiser on Sunday.

It will run from 10am to 3pm at the Lemnos Street shelter in Shenton Park.

President Karen Rhodes said it was a way for people to support Perth’s homeless dogs while having a sticky beak around the shelter.

“Our Home Open will be great fun for the whole family,” Ms Rhodes said.

“Not only is there a huge amount going on for anyone who loves dogs but by coming along people can feel good about helping us to raise much-needed funds to enable us to continue rescuing Perth’s homeless hounds.”

The Home Open will include stalls with items for dogs as well as homemade cake stalls, raffles, hydrobaths and a mega jumble sale.

“We also have over 100 dogs waiting to meet our visitors and we’re hoping that some might even grab their new owners’ attention” Ms Rhodes said.

Carine resident Jarrad Tate will voluntarily send himself into the dog house for a Dogs’ Refuge Home fundraising appeal run that day. His charity Tate Family Foundation will match up to $25,000 to boost donations for ‘In the Dog House’.
