Cheers to the end of an era… and new beginnings ahead


Today, we say farewell to Jill, our shelter manager of 16 years now. She is not retiring… but heading into new exciting ventures with her soon to be husband whom she met when the new shelter was being built.

We wish her all the best for the future and now we will see her face around here (we’re sure she’s going to find it hard to keep away!)

So please join us in wishing Jill a very happy See you Around!

Its $2 Tuesday!

Today is the one day of the week when we ask everyone to dig deep and find that spare $2 dollars that’s always floating around and donate it to help us make a difference to the animals in the Alice Springs Animal Shelter.
$2 may not sound like much, but it all adds up in the end and from lots of little things, big things grow!
Your very affordable $2 a week will help to keep food in many hungry bellies and litter in many many trays.

All you need to do is set up a bank transfer into our account; donate your $2 and TA DA! You are done. You have helped a pet in need. Feeling generous? Why not set up a recurring donation of $2 a week!

Donate an Hour Poster 2015


Well, it’s that time of the year again… the tree is up (thanks Scoot and Marg for helping me I would have been there for hours hanging those tags ha ha!) and it is ready to go NOW!!!

So make your way to Pets’R’Us, grab a tag and start shopping to help spread Christmas cheer to those animals who are a little less fortunate!

Remember, gifts can be bought from absolutely anywhere in town, and can be placed under the tree either wrapped or unwrapped. (they can also be dropped off at Pawz N Clawz)

If you think the animals would like something on top of what is on the card please feel free to donate away… items on the cards are what the charities have asked for, but they will absolutely not turn down an extra donation of bandages, food, baby blankets etc!

There was such a fantastic response last year, please help me make this year even bigger and better for our local animals in need!
