Delve further into the history of The Lost Dogs’ Home in ‘Faithful Friends’ – a history of animal welfare in North Melbourne.

Researched and penned by Felicity Jack (Hotham History Project) and published in 2000, this educational historical resource examines the establishment and early development of the Home, the successes and struggles faced, and the stories of those individuals that fought long and hard to improve the welfare of dogs and cats.

Copies of Faithful Friends can be ordered via the Hotham History Project or check with your local library.
