New homes, funds crucial

AN INFLUX of eight small dogs in the past few days has Fraser Coast Pet Warriors pleading for funds, foster carers, food donations and people to adopt the homeless pets.

President of the volunteer group, Marie Barnes, said they were desperate for donations to pay off their $1800 vet bill and were searching for good temporary and permanent homes for the dogs, pups, cats and kittens in their care.

“The crucial part of this is that we save lives,” she said.

Ms Barnes said they had 14 foster carers across Maryborough and Hervey Bay but they were worn out and the group needed “to find fresh parents” with fully fenced yards to protect and feed the animals.

Anyone wanting to help should telephone Ms Barnes on 0407 371 538 or Pet Warriors secretary Kim Smith on 4128 0406.
