Enrichment Building Day!

Hey All,

A.P.P.L.E. has planned it's first ever official event! On Tuesday, May 7th we are going to be getting together on the UQ Gatton Campus for a fun afternoon of DIY dog enrichment creation. We are planning on constructing toys/puzzles for the greyhounds at the clinical studies centre on campus. We will be starting around 10:30am and going for as long as people want to stay. We will be watching some cool documentaries while we put together the in cage enrichment for the hounds. This should be a lot of fun so come out and help affect positive change for the pups that live on campus!

Here are some of the materials we are going to need to build the toys:

 o   Cereal boxes

 o   Toilet paper / paper towel rolls
 o   Milk / Juice containers (non plastic)
 o   Egg containers
 o   Cardboard
 o   Newspaper
 o   Raw Bones
 o   Pvc tubes
 o   Rope
 o   Old sheets
 o   Paper bags

If anyone has any of these things kicking around, or comes across them in the next few weeks hold on to them because they will be really valuable for our efforts to improve the lives of the greyhounds. Cheers!

- A.P.P.L.E.
