If you work, and your company has a charity day option – I absolutely implore you to give back to your community. Today I was lucky enough to do this – and got to spend several hours helping up at the Dogs Home of Tasmania.

It was great to be able to go behind the scenes and see what the volunteers and staff get up to. Admittedly, I haven’t been to the dogs home in a number of years – and with some recent funds being made available, the upgrades here and there have been a nice touch. What was even nicer was there wasn’t a full kennel – so praise be that stays that way over the summer period.

As cute as it was, it certainly wasn’t just play with the puppers and be done with it. I didn’t think I really noticed at the time but man, coming home I am exhausted. We weeded and picked up poop and scrubbed out viewing areas – absolutely hit my 10k step allowance for the day super early!

This cutie patootie was my highlight of the day. I totally forgot to get a picture of him not in his pen (two walks and a play makes for a pretty good day!) Clever little cookie knew how to sit, roll over, say please (shake paws) and whilst he looks super sad here, I super pinky promise that wasn’t for the whole time! These puppers are so super loved out there, and I don’t doubt for a moment they’ll stay in there for much longer. Everyone of them had such an amazing temperament.

I’m a massive fan of “Adopt, don’t shop.” Wally, my fur kid, was adopted from there when he was 4 months old. There’s so many benefits of adopting, including having their shots up to date, microchip and also de-sexing, which can cost a fortune!!

I know that going forward I’ll be looking at putting a more permanent volunteer application in and get my charity on – and see if I can’t do some fundraising on the side, both with my photography and shake some tins when the time comes.

Do you have a pound doggo? What first drew you to them?
