Peninsula Animal Aid (Redcliffe Peninsula, Clontarf - Queensland)
Last year, after the heartbreaking loss of our beloved Kelpie, I wanted to donate his remaining feed to the PAA as we were to be dog free for a while. Upon arrival, there was a Border Collie Cross having her photo taken as she’d only just been surrendered (on her 2nd birthday!). I wasn’t going to be tempted, however after a couple of visits, including the rest of the family, she was “put on hold” for me till her vet work was done. She then came home for a “sleep over”, she was terrified of cars, cupboards, the fridge door, stairs, trips to the beach, horses and would chase anything that moved when out walking. Now she has turned around to be a happy confident dog and brought joy and laughter back into our home, she loves the car, horses, beach walks, fridge is her best friend and stairs are great to hurtle up and down racing us, doesn’t chase “anything”. A totally different dog now to who came home with us, and we are better for having her in our lives and knowing that we rescued a lovely dog, she goes almost everywhere with us.
