Second chances

MORNINGTON Park Waste Transfer Station held a sausage sizzle at the Second Chance Reuse Shop to raise funds for the Dogs’ Home of Tasmania.

As well as a sausage sizzle, the Transfer Station put on face painting, a raffle, and showed a display of furry friends from the Dogs’ Home.

The prize for the raffle was a brand-new kennel which was donated for the event.

The winner of the kennel was Megan and her puppy Wellie, who she rescued from the Dogs’ Home of Tasmania.

The aim of the event was to raise money to go towards the achievement of the Dogs’ Home of Tasmania’s goals for 2018.

This year, the Dogs’ Home is working hard to provide the best possible care to all dogs who enter its care.

It is promoting the dual responsibilities of dog ownership – ensuring that dog owners not only look after their dogs, but their community.

The Dogs’ Home is also promoting desexing of dogs and delivering education programs to schools in the community.

With the help of loyal customers and the wider Eastern Shore community, the Transfer Station was able to raise $1,500 on the day.

Local businesses which supported the event include BlueScope Steel, Baker’s Delight Glenorchy and Trendy Cut Meats.
