Identify, Update, Reunite!
With 12|12 Pet ID Day just around the corner, we talk about the importance of not only identifying your pet, but using December 12 as a reminder to check that your details on your pet’s ID are up-to-date.

Volunteering at The Lost Dogs’ Home
Between 1995 and 2010, the estimated number of people volunteering across Australia has doubled. This upwards trend comes as good news to organisations, like The Lost Dogs’ Home, that value the role volunteers play in their day-to-day operations.
To mark International Volunteers Day on December 5 and to find out how to get involved, we speak with the Elena Calodoucas, the Home’s volunteer coordinator and Jan, a long term volunteer at the Home.Pets-A-Loud Series One Episode Eight: Is your pet invisible?
November 27, 2012 01:15 PM PST
This year National Pet Register, the pet ID database service created by The Lost Dogs’ Home, reunited in excess of 53,000 lost pets with their owners. With 12|12 Pet ID Day, a national day of awareness on December 12, we ask – is your pet invisible?
Each year, thousands of lost animals without identification end up in shelters around Australia making it extremely difficult for shelter staff to contact owners and for owners to find their pets. A pet without any form of identification is virtually invisible.
Formed over 20 years ago, National Pet Register was established by The Lost Dogs’ Home in response to the high numbers of dogs and cats that arrived at shelters without an ID.
This week, we look how the simple act of identifying your pet and keeping your contact details updated betters the chances of your reunion. We also look at what you need to do if you have lost a pet, or if you have found a lost pet.Pets-A-Loud Series One Episode Seven: Veterinary Clinic and Vets

This week on Pets-A-Loud, we get an insight into the daily workings of the Clinic, its dedicated staff and preview the Home’s new clinic set to open next month. We also get a hands-on account from work experience and newly graduated veterinary science student about her time in the Clinic’s work experience program.Pets-A-Loud Series One Episode Six: Behaviour Rehabilitation
November 11, 2012 03:44 PM PST
A high number of these unclaimed dogs at The Lost Dogs’ Home have behavioural issues and need additional training and socialisation before going up for adoption.
The Home in conjunction with Planet K9 operate a comprehensive behaviour rehabilitation program that is tailored to the needs of each dog. The program gives dogs the opportunity to be rehabilitated and as a result, better their chances of getting adopted and staying on at their new home.
This week, we meet Daryl and Ozzie – two terrific terriers and graduates of the behaviour rehabilitation program. Arriving at the Home in a severely traumatised state, the pair were recently adopted following their successful rehabilitation.
We also explore the types of problem behaviour and how each can be tackled.Pets-A-Loud Series One Episode Five: Holidaying and Pets
November 07, 2012 08:10 PM PST
Taking your pets on a holiday with you can be the most memorable experience for you and your family. Pets love our company and most of them also enjoy the great outdoors. You can’t however, always take your furry friends with you- perhaps you feel like you need a break, or the holiday you have planned is simply not going to be any fun for your cat or dog.
With the holiday season around the corner, this week we look at some handy tips for holidaying with and without your pet.
Join our Head Dog Trainer Nicole Beasley as she explains the complex canine world so their human guardians can teach them to be fun family members.
