I have been amazed at the generosity of some of the small businesses in supporting dog shelter groups and, equally amazed at the huge companies that don’t. Pompous Paws has been more than generous to Stafford Rescue Victoria over the last 18 months. Donating her merchandise for on-line fundraising, donating merchandise for our stall and for donating a percentage of the profits from a very successful line of their merchandise last winter. I was particularly impressed when the owner of Pompous Paws Dianne Charbel donated her precious free time to model for Stafford Rescue’s new merchandise range. What a success it has been for us, a huge thank-you to Dianne’s two dogs Evie and Georgia. A pet owner herself, Dianne is not just about the almighty dollar and supports other groups and has a passion for very worthy animal causes.
