Founded in 1996, Assistance Dogs Australia is a national charity which trains Labradors and Golden Retrievers to help people with disabilities, providing them with greater freedom and independence.
It’s time for the annual Hogs for Dogs Harley Ride that aims at raising at least $100,000 for Assistance Dogs Australia (ADA), a charity that trains dogs to perform everyday tasks for people with disabilities.
Liverpool Leader reported that the 140-km round trip from Cronulla to Mt Keira Lookout in Wollongong on Harley Davidson motorbikes is in its 11th year, and has always been organised by Liverpool Harley Owners Group.
ADA top dog Richard Lord said about 100 Harley owners had registered to take part in the ride.
“We’re hopeful more people will join us,” Mr Lord said.
The Hogs for Dogs Harley Ride is a return trip from Cronulla to Wollongong on Sunday, March 22.
The convoy will depart Cronulla Beach for the return trip which will take just over two hours.
It takes two years and costs an average of $27,000 to train a labrador or golden retriever to help people with disabilities perform tasks they may find difficult or impossible to do.
