Presenting FuroutWest Furblockopolis 16th to 18th of November 2018 at The Atrium Resort in Mandurah.

Tirek is joining us again, though rather than swimming elegantly, he is looking a little more…blocky!
How will his city look this time? Who knows, but his many friends are coming along and invite you all to join them for even more fun and events!

Watch out for the community polls as they are released soon!

FOW 2017 over, Work on FOW 2018 begins

Our hard work on FOW 2017 is now over – we finished the convention raising a grand total of $3850 for the charity (Assistance Dogs Australia) with a total attendance of 112 furs, and we’ve started work on FOW 2018.
There’s some exciting stuff in the pipeline for FOW 2018, just wait and see.

FOW 2017 – Convention Feedback

What…It’s Monday already?
That would mean the first ever FurOutWest is over, and the preparations for 2018 are already underway.
As the community con though, we could really do with some feedback before we go into debriefing as a committee.
What did you like?
What do you think needs to improve?
What didn’t you like?
Now we also understand that you may think we won’t like the answers, but I can assure you that every single bit of feedback we receive will be read and replied to, good or bad. After all, we actually listen to everything that you say, as we fully admit that despite our experience, we can always learn.
Drop a line using the on the facebook page, or on the form here, if you want to keep your feedback private.

FurOutWest 2017 – Charity Announcement!

Good evening everyfur.
Firstly, we must apologise for the quietness, but after some negotiations, we at FurOutWest are happy to announce our charity for the inaugural year is the
community’s first choice. Assistance Dogs Australia.
At the moment, we are not sure on exactly what days they will be present, but the scheduling will reveal all closer to the time.

Founded in 1996, Assistance Dogs Australia is a national charity which trains Labradors and Golden Retrievers to help people with disabilities, providing
them with greater freedom and independence.
Assistance Dogs Australia provides a free service to people with disabilities. Our recipients include those born with developmental disabilities like cerebral
palsy and spina bifida, those who acquire debilitating illnesses like multiple sclerosis, and those who have been in tragic accidents and will never walk
We also provide dogs for children with autism, people living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and are excited to launch a new pilot working with
people living at home with dementia.
Each Assistance Dog takes two years to train and requires an investment of over $30,000 – however, Assistance Dogs are provided to people living with disabilities
free of charge throughout Australia.
As a result of our program, these highly trained dogs allow recipients to have greater mobility, gain confidence and allow them to have higher self-esteem.
Have a good evening all, and keep your eyes peeled for a new poll that will be posted on the weekend…our mascot needs a name!
