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
again.
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!
