DCH is run entirely by volunteers and receives no government funding. This means that funding resources is an ongoing issue for us. Below is our Wish List of much needed items that will help us to keep on rescuing. If you can help by providing any of these items please contact us, we'd love to hear from you.
Many of our rescue animals come into care needed extra veterinary attention due to past neglect and the harsh environment of the pound. Your donations towards these animals is vital as our adoption fees don't cover this additional expenses. Visit our Sponsorship page to see which animals are currently in need.
URGENT - DCH is looking for a tradie or fencing person who would be able to contribute their time, or work at a discounted rate, for the construction of 4 single-rail horse feeding pens in western Sydney (near Eastern Creek). Please let us know if you are able to help by emailing or calling Nadia on 4576 0495
Food is one the biggest expenses our volunteer carers face in housing our rescue pets. We can always use donations of quality dry food for both dogs and cats and also wet food, particularly for kittens. We're also very happy to accept donations of fresh mince or chicken too. We have carers right throughout Sydney, Blue Mountains and Wollongong. Contact us and we can direct you to the closest carer to you to drop off any food donations.
We are always in need of flea treatments for our dogs and cats. Each rescue animal is given a flea treatment immediately upon arrival and then ongoing until rehomed. Quality spot-on flea treatments are one of our biggest expenses. We desperately need donations of in-date products for small and big dogs, kittens and adult cats. Contact us to arrange drop off close to you or you can post to 44 Dingle St Riverstone NSW 2765
