LETS HELP OOMPAH! Meet Oompah. Mesmerising. Beautiful. Survivor. She is currently at the Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA waiting for someone to call her their own. She is about a year old, possibly sharpei x and came to the home via the pound. Despite her terrible mange, she is a beautiful little girl. In the studio she was happy and affectionate and a real joy to meet and photograph. It always hurts my heart to see a dog who has been treated so badly, greet a stranger (me) with a tail wag and lick on the hand. Dogs are so trusting and forgiving … we owe some of them so much more than they get. Oompah is on medication to treat her condition which of course costs the DRH money. They can’t provide valuable medical care for dogs like Oompah without public support. If you would like to contribute to Oompah’s medical costs, you can make a donation at http://www.dogshome.org.au/make-a-donation/ Or if you, or someone you know, may be able to provide Oompah with a safe and loving home, where she can finally learn what it’s like to belong to a family, please contact the DRH.
Lets HELP OOMPAH and send her pic VIRAL!
Meet 12 year old Millie. After her owner passed away she found herself at the Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA. She desperately needed a home to call her own, but sadly no one inquired about her for all the months she had been in the DRH’s care. So I went out to take her photo, in the hope of getting her story some press in the newspaper and on Facebook and from that, finding her a home. And then guess what happened? A lovely lady came in out of the blue and adopted her. The universe works its magic sometimes, doesn’t it! I wanted to post her photo anyway just to say that golden oldie pooches need to be adopted too.
Best of luck with your new life Millie.
Alex PS: There are several other golden oldies at the DRH still waiting for their forever homes too!

Here are three of the pooch posters from our “New Home” project with the Dogs’ Refuge Home of WA. So far Georgie has been adopted, which is awesome news – now time for Snoopy and Rusty to find their places with forever families too.
The long term pooches of the Dog’s Refuge Home received more publicity yesterday! There’s even a before and after gallery here – http://www.perthnow.com.au/gallery-e6frg1vc-1226030675876?page=1
And two articles here -
Big thanks to Perthnow and Wangle for sharing their stories! lets hope they find their forever homes soon – they have all been waiting long enough!
We have been working on a special photography project with the Dogs’ Refuge Home (DRH) in Shenton Park to highlight their long-term pooch residents – some of whom have been at the DRH for 3 years. Having met and photographed the pooches, I can vouch that they are beautiful, loving dogs, each with different personalities, and all with big hearts. Surely the right forever homes for each of them are out there somewhere? We now need YOUR help to get these posters out and about in Perth and as viral as possible. PDF versions are available on the Long Termers page of the DRH website http://www.dogshome.org.au/long-termers/ and hard copies will be available from their office shortly. Lets help Axel, Frankie, Tyler, Bailey, Bridget, Bullet, Kira, Bruno and Rusty find their new homes.
