The Lost Dogs’ Home is proud to have adoption ambassadors not only in Australia, but also around the world. Every time we receive an email, we are taken on a virtual tour via wonderfully descriptive updates from their new owners and fantastic photos showing how much they are enjoying life.

Recently we received correspondence from another proud ex-pat adopter and regular pen pal Julia, on how her intrepid beagle mix and former resident of the Home – Optimus Prime – is (literally) living a dogs’ life in San Francisco, USA.

// April Photo A Day //

Day Twenty-Three: Shoes

Puppies chew for two main reasons:

To relieve the pain and discomfort of teething which usually occurs between 3 to 6 months of age
As a way to explore their surroundings, much like a toddler will explore using their hands.

Rather than letting your puppy teach itself to chew household items, it’s important to establish good habits and house rules from the moment it comes home.

PLEASE SHARE: Despite Easter 2014 drawing to a close we are hopping about with joy at The Lost Dogs’ Home following a fantastic long weekend of adoptions at our North Melbourne Shelter.

A total of 27 cats and kittens and 16 dogs and puppies all now have a home to call their own. We are sending a big thank you to those who opened their hearts and homes to a deserving shelter animal this weekend!

However, there is still plenty of opportunity to adopt one of our wonderful dogs and cats. Our fantastic April adoptions drives are continuing and the Anzac long weekend ahead offers another perfect opportunity to welcome a new four-legged companion into your life. Check out our purrfect adoption offer at our Campaspe and North Melbourne shelters where the adoption fee has been waived for all cats over 6 months and at our Warra shelter in Brisbane we have many wonderful dogs and cats just waiting to go home with you for half the usual adoption fee.

Day Twenty-Two: Lazy

Ruby was quite lazy this morning as she didn’t want to get up for a photo, preferring to sit on her warm bed instead! What does your pet do that’s quite lazy?

Day Nineteen: Outdoors

Our pets love heading outdoors for some exercise and a good sniff around, but take care as there can be some plants that can be quite irritating to their skin. Find out more online at http://dogshome.com/toxic-plants/

North Melbourne: 2 year old Mystique can be a little bashful in new environments and with new people, however she is a very sweet affectionate girl with a lot of love to give.

She simply adores being patted and once you spend a couple of minutes patting her she starts to actively seek out your attention.

Mystique will need to go to a quiet new home with an owner who can provide her with lots of gentle encouragement to help her transition into her new home.

Until April 30, we are waiving the adoption fee of cats aged six-months and over at our North Melbourne shelter.

Where: The Lost Dogs’ Home North Melbourne Shelter, 2 Gracie Street. North Melbourne
