Lendi volunteers at the Sydney Dogs and Cats Home

A couple of weeks ago, some animal-loving members of our Lendi team generously donated their time to volunteer at Sydney Dogs and Cats Home.


Sydney Dogs and Cats Home is Sydney's only charity pound and community facility - they are a no kill shelter and will keep an animal as long as it takes to find them a home. The Home has been taking care of Sydney's lost, abandoned and neglected pets since 1946 - they currently work with Bayside, Fairfield, Georges River, Inner West, North Sydney, Randwick, Waverley and Woollahra Councils. They run a number of Community Programs including, Army Program, Youth Mental Health School Program, Aged Care Programs and Community Services Program.


If you think that volunteering at an animal charity is all about cuddling puppies and kittens, you'd be very wrong. There's a lot of hard work involved in keeping an operation like this running. Some of our team's responsibilities included:

  • cleaning out rabbit cages
  • washing bedding/toys/bowls
  • hanging out washing
  • cleaning laundry and pet food kitchen
  • sorting donations
  • socialising and feeding rabbits
  • grooming dogs in kennels
  • moving dogs from their day kennels to night bed/kennels
  • washing/cleaning out doggy day kennels
  • walking dogs
  • brushing and socialising cats

Our happy team of volunteers were also kind enough to bring along donations of food, treats, toys, blankets and other supplies.


Sydney Dogs and Cats Home is currently in the process of trying to raise money to build a larger facility with more room for their animals (they have been in the same facility since 1946 in residential Carlton). If you'd like to donate or volunteer your time and help you can contact them via their website here.

Earlier this year, our team volunteered at Monika's Doggie Rescue. Read the full story here.
