Every homeless Dog deserves the opportunity to find a loving, well-suited home for life.

The Dog Adoption Zone was a unique opportunity to learn all about Dog adoption with experts on hand at the show and dozens of Rescue Groups that exhibited. Visitors discovered whether Dog adoption was right for them, what’s involved, how to find a suitable Dog and how to start the process.

We are committed to raising awareness for adoption and substantially increasing the number of abandoned and homeless Dogs placed in loving homes. By allowing hundreds of shelters to exhibit at the Dog Lovers Show since 2013 we have helped 2,000+ Dogs in need to find loving, well-suited homes.

With your support we are confident that the 2018 Sydney Show helped contribute to improving the lives of many more Dogs like never before, so we encourage you to spread the word and help us promote this important initiative.

Visitors were unable to actually adopt a Dog at the Show, but they were provided with all the right information and contacts needed to make informed decisions. Qualified staff were also on-hand at the Show to advise visitors of all the nearest shelters to their homes as well as Dogs that are available to adopt now. Most of the exhibitors who participated in the Dog Adoption Zone brought Dogs along to the Show that were available for adoption – so visitors actually met many Dogs up for adoption at the event.
