Angel and her mum Lee are homeless. In Melbourne, they sleep
on the streets, anywhere that they can as they struggle to
survive day by day. A supporter of RWL 12 months ago mentioned
the story of Angel and her mum and we could not turn away.
So we decided to try and do something to assist those less
fortunate. And Project Angel - in honor of little Angel who still
sleeps on concrete or whereever her Mum is, was born.
After a year of research we have found the perfect spot to help
dogs like Angel. We are going to help supply food - with you-
the public, for those who live on the streets of Melbourne, or
who are living in poverty, with their dogs. We will do the hard
yards, you will see what we do with your help!
Speaking to a social worker - she said, How amazing, these
people have never known unconditional love in their lives
except for their pets. So in conjunction with St. Mary's House
of Welcome in Brunswick Street Fitzroy, Rescued With Love
will be organizing food for those with dogs who need help.
Angel - for whom our project is named after.
Our Food Drive is from 4-31 August 2012
HOW CAN YOU HELP? DONATE FOOD!
IT'S EASY - JUST TWO TYPES TO CHOOSE FROM!
1. Bags of Dry Dog Food
We request SMALL KIBBLE ONLY!!!
Large and small dogs can eat small kibble, but small dogs
often cannot eat large kibble. To keep it easy, and suitable
for everyone, we ask for SMALL KIBBLE Dry food please.
2. Peel back individual serves of wet food
We request wet dog food in this kind of packaging only.
The homeless do not have access to can openers, or
spoons to use in large tins. These individual serves are peel
back, easy to carry for those who are transient, and
can be given to the dog to eat from without any hassle.

Please understand we are not accepting any donations for
Project Angel apart from food. Any food that is not within
the requested limits shall be donated to a respected
Shelter/s in the Melbourne area and not used by RWL.
RWL will not benefit from any donations made for Project Angel.
What happens next?
RWL Volunteers will gather all food together and re-bag the dry food
into smaller ziplock bags which make them easy to carry.
It will then be delivered to St. Mary's House of Welcome in
Fitzroy to be distributed to those in need. Many are homeless,
many live in poverty. Our aim is to help those who love their
pets to assist them.
Once the store of food gets low, RWL will then start another drive
for food with your help.
On behalf of everyone at Rescued With Love, St. Mary's House of
Welcome and our supportive Vet Clinics, we would like to say...
with hearts and hands together.....................
