This Saturday 9 February, the Huon Valley Dog Walking Association is holding a garage sale at the hall in Cradoc Park on the Channel Highway from 9am to 1pm, with all proceeds going to the Dogs' Homes of Tasmania. There will be many treasures to be found at bargain prices, and not just dog related items, I promise. For example, David and I have a hardly-used cat tree house and scratch pole up for grabs! There will be books, clothing, home wares, plants and more, with all proceeds going to the Dogs Home in Hobart so they can continue the great work they do. Anything unsold at the end of the day will go to the local scout group or the tip shop, so come along and make us an offer.
The Dogs' Homes of Tasmania do a fantastic job, re-homing dogs that haven't had the best start in life, arranging veterinary care and much more besides. Recently, they found themselves in financial difficulties, struggling to continue services. Thanks to fundraising by many kind people, including several collections in Cygnet, the emergency passed. Then the bush fires hit Tasmania, and fire affected families needed somewhere secure for their beloved pets to be housed and cared for. Then... you get the idea. The need for funds to keep this important service open continues. Please come along, grab a bargain and help them to look after man's best friend.
UPDATE: We raised around $1,400 - thank you to everyone who came!
