Every dog deserves a home
Wouldn't it be nice if you could visit an award-winning bar, join in one of the latest dance crazes and raise money for a charity all at the same time? Thanks to the Desperate for Love Dog Pound Rescue group you can do all three at their fund-raising Silent Disco on Saturday 27 February. To be held at Mt Hawthorn's popular Pirate Bar, the night promises to be full of fun, food and music, all in aid of a good cause.

Desperate for Love Dog Pound Rescue Inc. (DFL) is a non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers. As their name says, they rescue dogs from pounds and place them with foster carers until a "forever home" can be found. With a network of more than 300 foster carers they are able to rehome about 500 dogs a year. No matter how old or ill a dog is, DFL volunteers will care for it until the end of its life.

DFL does not receive any funding and relies solely on adoption fees and fundraising. Funds raised from the silent disco will help to offset their expenses including kennel costs and vet fees.

What is silent disco? Basically people dance to music listened to on wireless headphones rather than a speaker system. Those without the headphones hear no music, giving the effect of a room full of people dancing to nothing. Sometimes there are two channels on the headphones with the dancers hearing vastly different music. Either way, silent disco is great fun - see below for a video of the author taken at the recent Fringe World Festival.



Tickets to the Desperate for Love Dog Pound Rescue Silent Disco are $30 and can be purchased here. Ticket sales are limited so buy now to make sure you don't miss out. Note: this is an 18-plus event.
