Two Happy Graduates From the Hahndorf Animal Shelter

A dog exercise park is often a very companionable place, and owners regularly chat between themselves while their "kids" engage in a meet and greet with their other furry friends.

Most of my favourite dog parks are south of Adelaide, and the most popular dog parks there are at Hazelmere Reserve, CC Hood Dog Park, and at Orphanage Park next to Tabor College.

A dog park needs generous amounts of space, seats, and some shade for owners and pets, and all three of the above parks south of Adelaide are well set up as dog off leash areas. Some even have fun things to do for your dog such as pipes to run through, and courses to navigate.

While wandering Orphanage Park recently I discovered a sign advertising the Orphanage Park Pooches' Xmas BBQ, and thought I would share it further. There's quite a strong community spirit between dog owners at Orphanage Park, and a Christmas get together for owners and pooches is a great idea.

Orphanage Park Pooches Xmas BBQ

On Sunday November 30th from 4pm until 7pm, you're invited to a community barbecue with free live music. It's BYO food and drink, but being Christmas you're also invited to bring a donation of money or dry dog food to help one of my favourite charities - the Hahndorf Animal Shelter.

The Hahndorf Animal Shelter is a small no-kill shelter run by a very dedicated group of volunteers, and is where both of my "kids" come from. The Shelter relies heavily on donations and sales of its attractive calendar (only $5 each), and I was pleased to see that the Orphanage Park community is helping this small non profit shelter for cats and dogs.

Live music at the Orphanage Park Pooches' Xmas BBQ features brackets from Resolver, a dynamic pop band whose members are drawn mainly from dog park people. Other music is also being provided from various members of the dog park community on the day.

It promises to be a pleasant and friendly way to spend a Sunday afternoon, with all sorts of dog breeds taking advantage of the dog off leash areas. Why not bring along your pampered pet, together with some spare dry dog food as a donation to help keep the furry ones at Hahndorf Animal Shelter happy over Christmas?

Great idea!

Please be aware that Hazelmere Reserve is not a dog park - it is a reserve where dogs are able to be off-leash while under effective control. It is a shard use reserve and when sporting activities ae being held dogs must be on-leash at all times.
