About the Welfare Service
Dalmatian Club of New South Wales Inc. has, for many
years (since 1973 in fact), run a welfare service for
Dalmatians requiring re-housing for any number of
the years we have re-homed Dalmatians straight from
the Council pounds (after making every effort to
trace the owner), or arising from the death of an
owner, and sometimes because the Dalmatian and
the home were just not 'right' for each other.
Indiscriminate backyard breeding and the popularity
of the Disney films have been unfortunate contributors
it's not just the Sydney area which the Club
covers; our membership is widespread and there are
very active and willing members throughout New South
Club raises funds throughout the year for the Welfare
Service - it's not cheap to vaccinate, microchip
and neuter a Dalmatian, ensure he is correctly registered
and sometimes, see to injuries, before finding
him a loving home.
Dalmatian Club of New South Wales desexes all rescues
before being placed. We believe the Dalmatian's own
needs are paramount. Dalmatians require/need a safe
and loving environment where they can provide friendship
and company for their new owners.
who are placed through our Welfare Service are very
special - and the people who eventually receive
a rescue Dalmatian are thus very carefully 'vetted'
to ensure the new home is the right home for the rest
of the Dalmatian's life. Life on the rebound can
be confusing and frightening for any dog - and we
want to make sure he has every possible chance.
Our welfare volunteers, wherever possible, follow up
after placement to ensure the Dalmatian is happy in
his new environment.
and her helpers are always on the lookout for potential
new homes so if an older Dalmatian is a possibility
in your home, think about contacting the Club and
putting your name forward to be considered for a Welfare
