Success Stories

Bella and Dennis

Bella and Dennis were brought into DAS earlier this year.  They are always vet-checked, vaccinated, wormed and microchipped (if they aren’t already).  Despite their cute looks these two were in dire need of medical attention.  Both around 12 years old, one had a serious heart murmur and one needed serious dental work. Infected gums can cause a serious drain on these little ones,creating extra strain on the heart.

ARF was able to take care of them, getting the necessary vet work done, making sure they were fit and ready to go to their new home.   Bella went from barely being able to walk, to trotting along and keeping up with the others for her daily walk. These two were feeling so much better now and even more so after getting the royal treatment by our fantastic groomer!! Don’t they look great??

How You Can Help

Become a Foster Carer

Being a foster carer takes time, dedication, commitment; but the rewards can far outweigh the effort when a neglected dog blossoms, and is then successfully placed in a new, loving home.

Find your best friend

Adopting from ARF takes the guesswork out of finding your dog.  ARF dogs are assessed against basic criteria so the type of home they need is identified before being made available for enquiries
