Golden Oldies Animal Rescue group has received some much needed donations.
Earlier this year, charity founder Gina Fallon was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment since then.
Students from Sydney's Cranbook School Harvey House donated some much needed supplies such as dog food, flea medication and dog treats for the all the dogs in the shelter.

Harvey Housemaster Elisa Scala said that she had been swamped with scores of donations from students keen to make a difference in the lives of the many dogs cared for by charity founder Gina Fallon and her army of volunteers.
Ms Scala said she was taken aback by the overwhelming generosity of the boys involved in the charity drive, saying that she was greatly heartened at the amazing support Cranbrook boys had shown for dogs which had been abandoned, neglected or abused.
"The boys have been fantastic and some have even shown interest in fostering a dog," she said.
Among the many boys who gave generously to the initiative was Cranbrook Year 10 student Alfie Broekhuizen, who said that he was pleased to have been able to make a difference for animals in need, particularly in the case of older dogs who were often more difficult to rehome.
"Harvey House's contribution to animal rescue is particularly meaningful, especially as a dog owner," Alfie said.
"Our support of Golden Oldies' senior dogs shows the contributions we can make as students, and all that Harvey House does to care for those who need it in our society."
Student Head of Harvey House Angus Ritchie and Second Head of House Evan Chee recently joined Ms Scala in delivering several loads of much needed supplies to Golden Oldies, with the boys happy to take time out from their busy HSC study schedule to ensure the donated goods could be put to good use.
