We are lucky our two staffies don’t mind storms.

Couldn’t care less!

Been out running in circles and barking at the thunder since 4:30am

Mine couldn't care less!

Hides under the bed scared and shaking like a leaf

This doggo is to cute!!!! Our doggos didnt mind this mornings thunder usually they are on our lap freaking out.

My Bella couldnt care less. The greyhound I had looked for it as in jumping up with a bark but didn't annoy her

Willingly came back to bed and hid

Could not get them off the bed this morning

Anti anxiety meds for my staffy

No care

Gorgeous ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Hates his foster sister barking at the sky noises at 5am 😂

Under the bed.

Was just wondering if the dog in post was for adoption, I think one of its siblings is my bosses dog and it would be awesome if they could play together

Got one that sleeps through it all and the other needed his thunder shirt!

Big scary German shepherd is afraid of the sky clapping

Hollie Masterson 😜

Vetalogica tranquil treats are really good and they also make tranquil tablets for dogs and cats.

Whippet jumps 7 foot fences to run from it…

Hey GAR family, The Animal Law Institute needs our help!

ALI is a predominantly volunteer run legal service that helps to protect the most vulnerable in the animal world as well as helping rescue groups with all things legal.

It is a vital service they offer and we would honestly be lost without them, this is a group that the animal community cannot afford to lose.

If you can help in any way, please head over to their page where you can read about the important work they do.
Its unsung hero's like this that really make the animal welfare world go round 🐾HELP!

We are heartbroken to announce that come December, we are faced with the very real prospect of closing our doors after six years of fighting for justice.

Since 2015, our lawyers have:
🐾 Launched legal proceedings to hold breeders and pet shops accountable for unethical and cruel behaviour;
🐾 Challenged the captivity of dolphins at theme parks in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia; and
🐾 Assisted the Australian arm of the Non-human Rights Project.

We have also established Australia’s first and only Anti-Puppy Farm Legal Clinic, currently open in Victoria. We need to expand this Clinic into NSW and QLD, as we know puppy farming is also rife in these states.

But come December 2021, our funding runs out. Without funding, we will be unable to continue this important work.

Every $6,000 that we raise allows us to stay open for one more month - that's another month continuing our fight for justice.

And in major news, we now have a generous donor who has committed $10,000 to our cause – if we can get to $100,000!

Help us stay open and continue to be a voice for all animals: www.givenow.com.au/ali
