Devoted to Dooley

Dooley the four year old Kelpie cross first came to us for emergency boarding when his beloved owner was hospitalised. Without his owner having a support network, RSPCA ACT stepped in and helped Dooley in his time of crisis. 

Dooley’s owner had been present at his birth, and had saved the little pup’s life after complications arose. They had an incredible bond, and without our help, his owner would have been forced to surrender him upon entering hospital.

RSPCA ACT inspectors regularly took Dooley to visit his owner at the hospital, and these visits were incredibly special. If you have a pet, you will know what sort of effect their presence can have when you are unwell or alone.

We had every intention of reuniting Dooley with his owner once he was well. Unfortunately things took a turn for the worse, and Dooley's owner passed away after a long illness.

Dooley was adopted in June, a very long time after entering our care. All the staff at RSPCA ACT will miss him, but we are so happy that he has found his new forever home.

RSPCA ACT offers a range of holistic programs and by helping animals, we are helping people in times of crisis. Help us help them by donating to our pet support program
