After Malibu/Leisel was successfully rehomed and Ange was fostering her relations, Kay and Jan discussed setting up an organization to rescue and rehome white shepherds and raise some funds to cover costs. Before the concept was fully operational Ange rescued a White Shepherd from Blacktown pound. When Ange picked her up and took her to the vet she weighed 16 kilos.She was called Hope.
Kay and Jan are involved with the Brunswick Lions Club and where able to hold some sausage sizzles at Dan Murphy's in Ascot Vale in January 2008 when the Lions had a rest. From theses Sausage Sizzles and generous donations from the Dogz Online community money was raised for Hope's rehabilitation.
Ange had been calling out a few dog type names to our rescue when suddenly she responded to the name Ice. Ange tried it a few mores times mixed in with other names and she responded each time. As Ange already had a dog named Ice it was felt Spice was more appropriate. Spice was responding well to Ange's tender care but was still not quite right. The vet did some further investigations and Spice was diagnosed with Diabetes. Because Spice needed monitoring frequently to bring her diabetes under control with Ange working full time it was too difficult for her to be able to successfully monitor Spice's diabetic treatment. Kay decided to foster Spice in Melbourne. Jetpets at very short notice flew Spice down to Melbourne on Australia Day public holiday.
