ACT Rescue and Foster summer issue of ChinWag is available now. Our cover pic for this issue is Toast. Toast was one of nine six-week old puppies dumped in a cardboard box outside West Queanbeyan Vet Hospital. Toast and seven of her siblings (one puppy being adopted by a vet nurse) came into ARF care and have now all found loving forever homes.
In this issue read about K9 Officer Chase. Rescued from a local pound by the Australian Federal Police, Chase was dux of his class and is now a K9 Officer with the AFP. Check out how to look for ticks on your dog, and get yourself a plan for your pet should an emergency arise.
Read about Loukanikos; Greece’s ‘Riot Dog’ who marched with protestors and walked with the community during the Greek economic crisis. And find out who our local heroes are and why, including some of our wonderful local vets who give their time to help pets of the homeless in Pets in the Park.

If treating your dogs like family makes me a crazy dog lady then I guess I’m in …
In another life I work in dog rescue—I volunteer for ACT Rescue and Foster (ARF) by writing, editing, and organising the great little team who publish their quarterly digital magazine ChinWag. Plus helping on stalls, doing some committee and communication sub-committee work, and generally just enjoying the company of other crazy dog ladies—and men!
If you want to find out more about what we do, and join in with some crazy dog lady activities then check out this blog written by one of our volunteers and foster carers https://blogusdogus.wordpress.com Find out if you’re a crazy dog lady—and come and join us!
