Doggy donation

Doggy donation Image

By Jack Hayes

They were the words that no Southbanker, or wider lover of dogs, wanted to hear: the annual Dachshund Race would not run in 2019.

German Bier Hall Hophaus and Southgate have had a wonderful tradition of bringing the Dachshund race to life since 2015, and in that time raised over $13,000 for Dachshund Rescue Australia.

Although there will be no race in 2019, Southgate has continued its philanthropic ways by donating $2000 to The Lost Dogs Home. The announcement was made to coincide with International Dog Day on August 26.

And Southgate Melbourne marketing manager Elise Hill shared some exciting news for the future of the race last month.

“While the event has now come to an end, we hope to continue Hophaus’ excellent work by supporting groups such as The Lost Dogs Home,” she said. “We are planning a brand new event for the dogs of Melbourne to enjoy in 2020.”

Since its inception, the “Tecklerennen” has attracted runners from all corners of the country and gained global notoriety.
