I'm taking PAWt in Petember!

Hi, I’m Sam.

 My dogs Merlin and Elsa, and I are taking part in Petember. I have special needs, so raising money to help other kids like me is important to me.


Help me be a suPAW star in the biggest doggie dress-up comPAWtition in Australia – Petember!


Petember is extra special because my PAWticipation raises funds and awareness for Variety Assistance Dogs. These PAWsome animals change the lives of kids living with Autism, Anxiety and Epilepsy.

Each week in September, I'll be showing you all my exciting dress-up themes for you to showcase my dogs PAWsonality! 

Make sure you check them out right here! And while you are checking out my PAWsome outfits, why not make a PAWstive difference to a child in need?

Petember is all about good dogs doing good.

Assistance Dogs are a lifeline for children in need. Last financial year, Variety – the Children’s Charity funded 9 Assistance Dogs to help improve the lives of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Anxiety and Epilepsy. 

It costs can cost up to $40,000 to train and place a Variety Assistance Dog with a child in need. Your supPAWt will assist Variety to fund assistance dogs for kids currently on our waiting list and to work with service providers to train, care for and place future assistance dogs.

I am Sam

Wednesday 1st Sep
My name is Sam.

 My dogs, Merlin and Elsa are my best friends.

Taking part in Petember is important to me, as I get to raise money for kids with special needs, just like me.

I was born with Sturge Weber Syndrome. I have Epilepsy, and right sided hemiplegia which fluctuates. I suffer from severe Hemiplegic Migraines, which I have to stay in hospital for, as it’s just like having Stroke. It can take weeks or months for me to get back to my normal self.  

My favourite things to do are listening to music, PlayStation and watching movies and TV shows ( I like Arrowverse at the moment). 
I like to take my dogs for walks around my neighbourhood. I have a new lead with a big handle that helps me hold onto them. 
Since COVID lockdown, I haven’t been able to go to Maiwel and Sunnyfield. I miss my friends, but have learnt to do online meetings to stay connected.  
Merlin, Elsa and I love being together and keeping each other company. 
We are going to have fun dressing up for Petember

Thank you to my Sponsors
