Sawyers Gully Animal Rescue Group
Every few months my partner and I go down to our local animal rescue group and do some sort of donation for them. We were in touch with Sawyers Gully Animal Rescue Weston who explained that with their current cats and kittens in care they are going through 42 cans of cat food in a single night. 42 cans! That’s insane.They let us know that there ALDI locally was the most cost effective option and that anything we could donate would be greatly appreciated… so we went on a bit of a rampage…. This was what we walked out of Aldi at Greenhills at Maitland with on Sunday afternoon.
The photo above is two ALDI trolleys full of 27 trays (12 cans in each) a total of 324 cans…. Would you believe this massive number (only 8 trays short of a pallet) will only last the Sawyers Gully Animal Rescue for about 7 days.. I just can’t get enough.. It’s something like $200+ worth of food right there… They go through $300+ a week for food and rely on donations… Much like a lot of the rescue groups in the area.
If you’d like to donate to them, please feel free to contact me personally or I can put you in touch with the girls directly. They have a facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sawyers-Gully-Animal-Rescue-Weston/554196344616086 which you can visit, like and follow their progress.

guys – Nat here… I have wanted to send me thoughts to those
suffering at the moment due to our natural disasters going around the
nation. I have to admit, although we’re not directly impacted by the
fires within NSW at the moment, I had been rather emotional for those
who are suffering right now.. I was absolutely disgusted after seeing a
news story that looters have been targeting the “evacuated
areas” where by residents have fled their homes due to the fires… and
poor excuses for human beings have raided the houses stealing tvs, cash
and property… seriously what the hell is wrong with people!! One
report said that a 12 and 13 year old teens were responsible for one lot
of fires, It makes me so angry that some of these fires were
deliberately lit by arsonists and there are people who are losing
everything…. yet there are lowlifes that seize the opportunity to just
keep on taking – I am so genuinely sorry for those impacted. My heart
breaks for you..
I know it’s not helping directly and that
this is not the most professional means of expressing my heart ache for
all of you, but I am sending my thoughts and prayers to everyone – We’ll
do a rain dance or something and help bring on the rain and put an end
to these fires.
If we; Natalie Crowe Designs
can do anything to help any of you, please don’t hesitate to contact
us. I am so sorry once again.. We’re here to help and we’ll do what we
can make a difference.
Please stay safe .
My thoughts are with you. x
