A huge thankyou to Bechallenged who kindly donated the spoils from their recent team building event. DCH carers now have brand new dog kennels to use with their rescue dogs (and cats!) and the generous folk at Be Challenged also made a $500 donation as well.

Here is ex-rescue dog Millie picking out her favourite.

Petstock National Adoption Day

February 2017

A big Thankyou to all the DCH volunteers who attended the National Petrescue/Petstock Adoption Day in 2017.

DCH had a stall at the Marsden Park Petstock which showcased some of our needy rescue pets and was able to advise the public about animal rescue in the community.

And also thanks to the wonderful petstock staff who opened up their store to us on the day.

Santa Paws 2016 Photos

November 2016


This year is fast disappearing and it’s that jolly time again where Santa and the Christmas Spirit is in the air. Sadly, it’s not always a happy time for some animals who find themselves alone and without homes.

Each year in conjunction with the wonderful Franklin from Franklin Photography we hold a Santa Pet Photo booth at WellPet Vets Nepean. This event not only allows clients and their pets to capture a beautiful of their pet with Santa; celebrating the special bond we have with our pets and their part in our families, it also serves in an effort to raise awareness and much needed funds for a local welfare group. This year our WellPet Santa Campaign will be sponsoring DCH Animal Adoption.......

Hearts Aligned

April 2016

On Tuesday April 26, 2016, David (one of our members) and his rescue dog Jasper attended the launch of Hearts Aligned. It was a great night and Jasper who was very happy that he could bring his tennis ball was a big hit.

The Hearts Aligned initiative follows the real life stories of three Australian pet owners, all who have taken part in a demonstration that shows how dogs help reduce stress levels and improve our lives. You can see the full campaign video on Youtube or the Pedigree website.
