Bushfire Appeal - No More Goods Required

Thursday, 9 January 2020

Dogs Victoria has been overwhelmed with donations from our members and the dog community, however we have now reached capacity for donated food and goods. Moving forward, it is requested that only financial donations are made to support firefighters and affected communities.  Here’s a couple of ways you can help.

Dogs Victoria Management Committee has created a Virtual Dog Show fundraising initiative to provide much needed financial assistance to those members affected by the devastating bush fires across the country. Entries close 9pm on 26 January 2020.

You can donate by entering the virtual show and/or electing to pledge an amount via Easy Dog Entries https://www.easydogentries.com/au/shows/enter/4614. You will need a log in to access this.

As an alternative, if you would prefer to donate direct, Dogs Victoria has established a dedicated Bendigo Bank account to collect funds for all its member communities hit by fires so far.  All proceeds will go directly to those most in need.  Bank details are - Account Name: Victorian Canine Association | BSB: 633-000 | A/C: 136 271 210 | Ref: Donation/Fires
