What's On at Animal Aid

Adventure Dog 2020- DATE TBC

We are very sad to announce that in line with advice from the Federal Government relating to gatherings of 500 plus people, Adventure Dog will be postponed from 5th April 2020.

The safety of our participants, staff and volunteers is our number one priority. With the COVID-19 situation moving so rapidly, and with the advice of the Australian Medical Association we are confident this is the correct decision for us and the community more broadly.

The advice from health officials is intended to protect those most vulnerable in our community, slow the rate of infection and keep our health care system from being overburdened. We feel as though it is our responsibility to do our part for our community.

We will be keeping a close eye on the situation as it develops. 

To everyone that has registered we will be in touch as soon as we have a new date locked in. We understand there will be individuals who have already registered but cannot attend the revised date, in these cases we will issue refunds for your registration fees. In these unprecedented times we hope you will bear with us while we regroup.

We will keep you all in the loop.

In the meantime, keep safe.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.


Community Events

Dog Walking Group - Cancelled Until Further Notice

Our monthly dog walking group has unfortunately been cancelled until further notice. We will keep you updated via this space and our social media when we are back up and running.

You can support Animal Aid AND exercise your dog at the same time by participating in the walking group organised by Animal Aid supporters. On the first Saturday of each month, a group meets at a designated point along the Warburton Rail Trail for a walk to help raise funds for shelter animals in need of special veterinary care. Everybody is welcome, whether a dog owner or not. All walks are suitable for prams and strollers, although it can be a little rough in some places. All dogs must be kept on a lead at all times. The walk lasts for approximately 2 hours.

Adventure Dog 2020Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Adventure Dog 2020 is going to be bigger, muddier and even more adventurous! Does your dog love getting out and about, leaping and bounding, wading through water and muddy meadows? We're welcoming all dog lovers and their canine pals to take part in Adventure Dog - A Cross Country Challenge, help us raise money to care for the animals at Animal Aid. Join us at the picturesque Wandin Park Equestrian Centre, where you and your furry friend will be mentally & physically challenged by 25 obstacles spread over almost 4km. Together you will venture over the hills, under the logs, through the mud, you will enter the bush and plunge into the water with a splash! All while enjoying the views across the Yarra Valley towards Mt Donna Buang. Friends and family are welcome to come along on the day to give their support, there will be plenty of activities to keep them busy while you hit the course! After completing the challenge you and your four-legged friend will have a chance to re-join your supporters and refuel with plenty of food and drink on offer in the event village.
