Dear Friends and Supporters, A couple of years ago a person who held a fund raising event for SADS was asked why the event was not to benefit humans.That of course would have been commendable but this time non-human species had been chosen as the beneficiaries and perhaps the answer to that question is best answered by this sample of just three of the many quotes all echoing the same thoughts Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) said “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”. The Prussian philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said “The deeper minds of all ages have had pity for animals” and the founder of Buddhism , Siddhartha Gautama (563-483 BC) said “When a man has pity for all living creatures,then only, is he noble.”

Save-A-Dog Scheme (SADS) was established in 1985 to offer a humane alternative to the killing of unwanted dogs, especially dogs of good temperament, that would otherwise be destroyed at pounds and shelters.

article for destruction on the other is totally unacceptable. SADS is a “coal-face” organisation, which saves hundreds of dogs each year and which seeks, by example, to provide a better way of treating non-human animals.

SADS is an incorporated, non-profit, community based organisation controlled and operated by volunteers with the help of paid staff. It operates as a registered animal shelter and combines this with foster care in the community. Each dog is desexed, vaccinated, wormed, microchipped, vet checked and temperament assessed prior to adoption.

Save-A-Dog Scheme relies on donations for its continuing existence and does not receive any government funding. Donations to Save-A-Dog Scheme are now tax deductible and help with the general care of the dogs and the maintenance of the organisation.

SADS has a no kill philosophy and believes that the dichotomy of a dog being “Mans Best Friend” on the one hand and an unwanted

The greatest expense is for veterinary treatment for the dogs, which includes the care of sick and injured dogs. These dogs are nursed back to health rather than being destroyed as they may be elsewhere.

Erin has chosen a format which presents, month by month, portraits of our animals. As you turn the pages you will meet a new face, photographed with such empathy and definition that you can almost gaze into the soul of the animal and identify each individual strand of fur or hair. As Erin has generously donated both the photo and the printing, SADS will receive 100% of funds raised.





I adopted Cookie(now "Coco") in 2002 when she was probably 8 months old. She is GSP cross kelpie and it was love at first sight, I think she knew I would look after her.  When I walked her around your yard she looked at me and pretty much told me I had to take her home.  I’ve never looked back.  I’ve been mostly single / no kids since then so Coco is like a child. Yes, she is a little spoilt but she is one happy dog and really loved by not just me but all my family.  I look at lots of friends with their expensive purebred dogs with lots of physical and behavioural problems and have a quiet giggle.   Coco is no trouble at all. She had a few ailments to begin with and was a bit mangy when I got her but Savedog took care of that even after I took her home.  She has been so healthy since. I really can’t imagine my life without her now. Thankyou Saveadog.   Regards, Helen McCormack

We adopted a beautiful adult male boxer one year ago in August. Samson has since become the hub of our home. My children snuggle up with him when they’ve had a bad day, we laugh at the funny noises he makes, and play with him in the park. He helps keep us active, smiling and has brought another aspect of love into our home. He is gentle and my daughter loves to dress him up. He has been a pirate, a banker, Princess Leah, and a bathing beauty. Friends of ours loved our story so much, they also went to SADS and adopted a little Kelpie mix puppy of their own! Thank you Save A Dog for the service you provide to those animals in need, and to the families that are looking for a wonderful pet and companion. Sincerely, Christine.
