YOUR SAY: Family plea, help us find our lost best furry friend

We are appealing for help.

Our family and my three year old have lost his best friend, our dog.

He's his best friend, and he's distraught as we all are about our lost dog of 10 weeks and it's been harder with COVID 19.

Our lost dog is Tall Black furry and timid he won't come he's run and hide he's been gone for ten weeks now, lost from Tahmoor Wollondilly and we would appreciate it so much if you hear or see him to message us with where and when thanking you so much.

He has never got out before and not been out on his own, he is nine years old and been desexed, and microchipped and has a collar on, we have been looking day and night for him out at day and night he's been seen around Tahmoor /Bargo area near the creeks he travels along it. He seems to have been going round in a circle and seen in Thirlmere walking towards Buxton he goes round the streets at Couridjah and has been seen at a few roads in Buxton by different people and near the creek.

He won't come to a stranger, he's very timid and runs and hides.

We have been out till 2am and in the day, night and weekend and we still can't find him.

If you see him, please contact us. (We will pass your details onto the family)

Help those doing it tough

As temperatures drop and we draw towards the end of the financial year, I am calling on the

community to donate to the Vinnies COVID-19 Appeal to support people doing it tough.

With families around Australia under intense financial hardship and uncertain job prospects due to the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, Vinnies is bracing for an increase in calls for assistance once the government's JobKeeper and JobSeeker support payments are wound back in the coming months.

We need to raise $1.2 million to ensure people already struggling and those who have never had to seek assistance get the support they need to avoid falling into poverty.

Your generosity will help families have enough food and be able to keep the lights on.

To ensure all donations over $2.00 are tax deductible, please donate before 30 June by calling

13 18 12 or visiting vinnies.org.au.
