Thank you from the bottom of our heart!

GAR has recently received a donation of $5000 from an amazing couple to go towards Sasha’s medical expenses. This donation will help her immensely! Here is a lovely letter written by Sasha’s guardian angles 🙂

Recently, in the waiting room of a specialist eye clinic for animals, we met a carer from GAR.  With her was a young dog with a serious eye problem. On chatting we found out that this dog had only just come into foster care.  The carer demonstrated such kindness and a quiet confidence in settling the distressed pup on a blanket as she filled out the necessary paperwork.  We were just so impressed.  Later on I googled the GAR website and saw what great things this organization has already achieved. From this experience, my partner and I were inspired to ‘do our bit’.  Knowing just how much it takes to care for a sick animal we decided to donate money and intend to do so again. We feel it is the least we can do to help these wonderful people who take animals into their homes and do their very best to help them to heal, be rehoused and have the life they deserve.  Thanks GAR. ‘

Photographers We Need You!

If you are Geelong based and want to help the GAR furries find their future forever families then please get in touch with Maddison via email, photography@geelonganimalrescue.org.au, and show off some of your work!

A big thank you to the lovely humans at Knitting for Australian Dog Rescue Groups for Sasha’s beautiful handmade jumper
This amazing group knits all year round to keep rescue animals warm and sends out incredible parcels to those who need it most.
We just love the handwritten notes on all these jumpers! Thank you for keeping our furries warm again this winter friends xx

Rehabilitation Pens!

GAR was lucky enough to receive support from DEDJTR to build 4 rehabilitation pens.
These rehabilitation pens known as Project Bootcamp will House dogs that need additional training for correctable behavioural issues that go above the average training that foster carers alone can provide in their homes.
These pens will allow GAR to more effectively assess dogs that are coming in from pounds across Victoria in a safe and controlled environment to rehabilitate and re home safely into the community.
This will provide a viable alternative to euthanasia across council run pounds thereby increasing rehoming rates for animals who simply need someone to put in the time and care to help them be their best and safe selves.

GAR would like to thank DEDJTR for this amazing opportunity!
