      Welcome Gethen

      Hi Folks, my name is Gethen Sullivan. I’ve recently accepted a position with PHSG organisation on the Committee as Company Secretary.

      I have a wealth of experience in Management, Computers / IT, Customer Service and Marketing. A real estate agent and music event host by trade, after my experience with all walks of life, both in the corporate sector and the music scene in Perth, and at the age of 40,

      I decided that it was time for me to start giving back to society. I was put in contact with Ron & Michael of PHSG, and we hit it off from day 1. Since accepting the position, I’ve found everyone involved with PHSG to be welcoming, and most importantly kind-hearted. I get huge kick out of helping people, which is why my volunteer role as company secretary brings me so much joy. That added to the huge amount of appreciation we receive from those in need who attend our Sunday Outreach program, it is truly heart-warming. With a love for animals, meme’s and a zany sense of humour, I feel right at home with PHSG, and I am truly blessed to be part of the team.

      Have a fantastic Merry Xmas everyone and a safe and happy new year.

      Volunteer of the month

      Volunteer of the month this month was presented to Ray Dunbar.

      Ray has been a important part of Perth homeless support group for a long time now and was chosen for our volunteer of the month because of his commitment and dedication to making sure our homeless pets are well taken care of.

      Ray makes up little care packs that he distributes every Sunday at our outreach. Each pet gets enough to last them for the week.

      Donations of all pet food, tinned and dry as well as collars and leads and flea and worm treatment will be greatly appreciated by ray and can be dropped to our depot in Bayswater.

      Congratulations Ray on this well deserved award.
