RSPCA Australia

The RSPCA runs 40 shelters and employs around 1,000 staff. It costs more than $80 million each year to deliver all of our services which help improve the lives of Australian animals. Most of this money comes from public donations and fundraising initiatives, as well as business partnerships, grants and RSPCA patrons.

The RSPCA’s mission is to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection. To achieve this, the RSPCA works to enforce animal cruelty laws and prompt new legislation where required. The RSPCA also operates animal care and adoption facilities, and seeks to raise community awareness regarding the humane treatment of animals. In addition, the RSPCA works with government and industry to establish standards for animal care.

Let’s Go Fido! offers discounted rates to owners of adopted dogs, because we believe every dog deserves another chance and the people who give them that chance deserve recognition.

APDT Australia

The mission of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) is to enhance the human-dog relationship by educating trainers, other animal professionals and the public and advocating dog friendly training.

But foremost the APDT is the main provider of Australia’s Dog Training conferences, attracting world class speakers. Let’s Go Fido! encourages and supports their trainers to continue to educate themselves by attending APDT conferences both within Australia and overseas.

ASDOG

ASDOG provides professionally trained assistance dogs to people with physical disabilities free of charge. Each puppy progresses through a 2 year training program to prepare them for their future role as an assistance dog. Beginning in the home of a volunteer puppy raiser, the assistance dog journey is founded on a happy home environment and an abundance of social opportunities! Dogs in training then participate in a 12 month advanced program of intensive obedience, skilled tasks and public access training before being matched with a recipient and undergoing the team training required for a proficient working partnership.

Let’s Go Fido! has trained and continues to offer support with the present puppies undergoing their two year training program. The trainers would be proud and honoured to one day to take a puppy completely through this journey (as hard as it would be to hand them over at the end). Let’s Go Fido! encourages everyone to support this charity and consider becoming a puppy raiser and help train the support dogs of the future. It would mean the world to a person with disabilities.
