Operating since 1910, The Lost Dogs’ Home is said to be the voice for animals without owners. Continuing to strive for the creation of fair animal laws, and working directly to reduce the number of lost, abandoned and stray cats and dogs, The Lost Dogs’ Home is one of the Australia’s largest animal welfare organisations, caring for more than 25,000 cats and dogs each year.
They shelter and care for lost and abandoned cats and dogs, as well as providing a public veterinary and operating the ‘National Pet Register’ which provides free pet ID tags, discounted microchipping and a 24/7 pet recovery call centre for speedy recovery of lost pets. One of their most important programs is their Adoption Program, which aims to place their sheltered animals into loving homes with well-prepared and informed owners, whilst also ensuring the pets are ready to be loved and cared for.
It is important to note that The Lost Dogs’ Home were selected randomly as a winner of our MegaMayMonth $10,000 cash give-away through an independently verified electronic drawing system. Whilst we realise there is some stigma associated with The Lost Dogs’ Home from a select group of lobbyists, we act as an independent and impartial party in awarding them the $10,000 cash give-away.
Irrespective of the opinions of some of these groups, after spending the morning with them it is apparent that the team at The Lost Dogs’ home are one of the most passionate and committed group of people and overall we’re pleased that they are the winner of our MegaMayMonth $10,000 cash prize!
