Zorro & Jolie

“This is Zorro and Jolie. They’re mother and son. I won’t go anywhere without them.”

Zorro and Jolie adore their owner and it was amazing to see them interact and see their unique bond. Luckily for these two dogs, they have found a place to stay in housing commission accommodation. However, it’s not easy to find and many still struggle out on the streets with their animal companions.

Sam & Ty

“I’ve had Ty since he was 2 weeks old and he’s 2 years now. I got him from the pound. I’ve had plenty of opportunities to enter a shelter or home but none of them will take in Ty as well, so I said no. Wherever I go, he goes.”

We came across Sam and Ty outside Woolworths in Town Hall. Sam has nothing but love and care for his dog and would rather stay out on the streets than be separated from Ty – another example of the unique bond between pet and owner.
