Rescued With Love Inc. is a fully registered, not for profit organisation. They are a group of foster carers who help rescue unwanted dogs from Pounds and Shelters. They have all their vet work done and then care for them in our homes, and teach them how to be a loved well mannered pet. They then find the best possible home suitable for their needs.

Rescued With Love is hosting a very relaxed, fun and easy night at Blue Illusion Camberwell. You can pop along and have a glass of champagne, (or soft drink) and enjoy some browsing for a new outfit or some Christmas gifts for friends and family! It is always such great fun, and everyone who comes really enjoys themselves so please email Jane on and make a booking to come. Feel free to bring friends and family with you!

2013 Oscar's Law Gala Dinner

Saturday 16 February 2013

Central Pier, Docklands
143-175 Harbour Esplanade
Docklands, VIC - Australia

Oscar’s law is a campaign that enables everyone to make a stand and tell the Government that "We do not want companion animals factory farmed anymore” and "We no longer want the pet industry to mislead us about what is acceptable for our animals”.

You can help fight the genocide in Australia's pounds, promote rescue organisations and shelters as the first option to adopting, and change the way Australians gets their pets. Adoption is the intelligent alternative to impulse buying. No puppy factory whether it is 'clean', 'model', 'state of the art' or otherwise is the answer for mans best friend.

Remember if you cannot donate, volunteer, if you can't volunteer, educate. 
We want Oscar's Law.

Farmers Arms Hotel Daylesford

1 East St
Daylesford, VIC 3460
Ph+ 61 3 5348 2091

This 1857 red brick pub is the oldest in Daylesford.

'Executive Chef Gavan Anders has created a mouth watering selection of simple but sophisticated dishes that showcase the freshest of local ingredients at value for money prices. It's all deliciously casual and you don't need a reservation'.

Poppet with her pint!

It was a beautiful clear, sunny day ~ perfect beer garden weather! Whilst the period charm of the interior of the pub is lovely for those without furry children, we were so content with enjoying the sunshine out in the beer garden. 

The meals here are HUGE! The calamari salad was not even considered a main on the menu, but was definitely filling! It was hands down the best calamari salad we had tried in some time, with an asian flare in the dressing and addition of nuts. If this was HUGE, then the Gummy Shark and chips was MAMMOTH! We are not food connoisseurs by any means, but love good food, especially when it is matched with good weather and good company (the pugs of course!)

Gummy Shark & Chips

A trip to Daylesford need not mean a day away from your pooches! We thoroughly enjoyed the road trip out of Melbourne, walking through the town, driving around the outskirts to recommended places to visit ALL with the pugs happy as can be, riding with us in the back, or exploring with us on foot (or paws!)

If you were planning an extended stay in Daylesford, here are a few links to pet-friendly accommodation. Enjoy!
