BESTIE for a BESTIE RSPCA Government House

MOSS Band 19th February – Government House – RSPCA

On Friday, February 19th 2016, RSPCA South Australia is hosting a fun evening with a twist within the grounds of Government House.

The twist is this: South Australian wine-making legends will be hosting tables, where guests will enjoy back-vintage and museum-release fine wines donated by some of South Australia’s best wineries.

Table hosts and supporting wineries include Henschke, Charles Melton, Hentley Farm, Teusner, Samuels Gorge, Gomersal, Kaesler, Hobbs, Maxwell, Mr Riggs, Paxton, Tim Smith, Flaxman, DogRidge and many others.

Their roadmap will be a gourmet menu from Hill of Grace Restaurant Executive Manager and Chef, Dennis Leslie.

Add music, entertainment, and the magnificent surrounds of the Government House grounds, and we promise it will be an evening to remember.

The cause

RSPCA South Australia’s Safe Kennels program provides emergency accommodation for the pets of domestic violence victims, to keep them safe while their owners get the help they need.

Sadly, many people living with domestic violence will not leave that abusive environment if their pets have to remain behind, for fear they will be harmed. South Australia’s domestic violence support agencies do not provide accommodation for pets, so they refer these requests to RSPCA South Australia.

Currently, RSPCA South Australia are receiving more requests to assist people in crisis than we can cope with, so we are expanding our program to meet this need, including building additional kennel space and developing a specific foster care program to assist in housing these animals.

As the average length of emergency stay is two months, this is an expensive support program for RSPCA South Australia to provide (which invariably includes the cost of veterinary care) but it is a very important service that needs the community’s assistance with funding.
