Give a Dog a Bone - Christmas Appeal (Nov 15 - Dec 15)


Give a Dog a Bone, Keep Kitty Happy (GADAB) are running their 9th Christmas appeal (Sydney) that assists animal shelters and other animal services by providing them with toys, treats and food for the cats and dogs in their care.


You can help by placing one pet item (a treat, toy or food for cats or dogs) in your shopping trolley and taking it to one of the designated collection points located throughout Sydney. The items are then collected and distributed to animal shelters and services in need prior to Christmas.

Please pass on this information about the appeal to your friends, work colleagues and the wider community. 

The Give a Dog a Bone, Keep Kitty Happy appeal is held in the lead up to Christmas to capture the spirit of giving that is part of the festive season and draw attention to the particularly serious strain placed on services caring for homeless animals at this time of year.

  • Animal services often experience an influx of animals over the Christmas period or directly after.
  • People in the community want to do something to assist animal services. Offering this opportunity to donate one item provides a simple means to do this and has a direct positive impact on the animals and the service. 
  • To raise awareness of the many animals who do not have a home. 
  • Donating to this appeal will also directly assist animal shelters as well as organisations helping homeless people or people who are in financial need to care for their pets (Way2Home, Pets in the Park and many more). 

When: NOVEMBER 25 to DECEMBER 15, 2015
