Converting overgrown fields into three dog exercise yards is all in a day’s work for Lend Lease.
A team of twenty came to create, armed with all the materials, including fencing, kennels, shade cloths, sand and dog baths. It was a massive project, in very hot conditions. The project was not quite finished at the end of the first day - some shade cloth and fencing remained – so a team of six returned to the shelter to complete the job.
A huge thanks to all involved and we look forward to welcoming you back in 2014.
The recent NSW bushfires showed just how much the community rallies around the care and protection of their animals.
RSPCA NSW put out a call for donations and was overwhelmed by the support received. Relief efforts were coordinated from the Sydney Shelter with our inspectors, vets, nurses and education team on the ground at the evacuation centres. We received collapsible cages, bowls, collars, leads, medications, food, enrichment toys, blankets, litter, poo bags, harnesses, treats and chews – you name it, we had it!

International law firm Allen & Overy approached us in mid 2012 offering pro bono support, and the wheels really started turning in this relationship a few months later when our General Counsel started with us.
Allen & Overy have put in a phenomenal amount of hours overhauling our adoption agreements, and reviewing many more legal papers and contracts.
Thanks guys – your support means the world.
