Looking Back at 2018
What an absolutely incredible year 2018 was for Pawfect Pals!
Pawfect Pals had our first birthday in March and celebrated with a Trivia and Silent Auction night in June which was a huge success, trivia, side games, raffles and of course the key to ‘The Fridge’ all on offer, while people silently bid for the incredible donated items up for grabs, with all involved having a great night while raising much appreciated funds for our dogs. We couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate our 1st birthday!
But we didn’t stop there, we’ve been busy, out spreading the word about rescue and our pawfect pals in 2018, attending many different pet expo’s around Melbourne and holding several adoption days, as well as our ever popular Christmas Photo Shoot. We had a stall at the Dog Lovers Show which was magnificent, our ambassadogs and their people coming from all over Victoria, the snog-a-dog booth was in particular a huge hit with lots of the dog loving community coming by for a snog.
During the last year our team have done an incredible job of rehoming 160 dogs, that’s 160 lives forever changed for the better, with 160 families now with 1 extra member, this monumental effort has not been without some hairy moments such as beds spontaneously exploding but thankfully no dogs were injured!
While some dogs are dodging exploding beds other pawfect pals are getting themselves jobs as support dogs and office mascots. Even though 2018 was such a positive year, our hearts broke as we had to say goodbye to 4 of our pals Slim, Delta, Luna and Cesar, you will not be forgotten and we will see you again over the rainbow bridge.
We’d like to thank all of our adopters, supporters, Facebook followers, everyone who has donated to us, we’d also like to send a special thank you to our foster carers and volunteers, we are eternally grateful for all that you do, there are no words to describe how special you are!
2018 would not of been possible without all of you! Watch out 2019 Pawfect Pals is coming for you!
