Frequently asked questions
What happens to animals that don't get adopted?
Our animals ALWAYS find their furever homes. Some do take longer than others, but our rescue will look after them for as long as it takes!
Where do the animals come from?
All of our animals have either been rescued from an Australian pound or have been surrendered by their owner for various reasons, such as they are moving overseas, or they can no longer look after the animal due to costs.
Why desex rescues before adoption?
I already have an animal, whats the process in adopting a friend?
Yes, we have information on most of our rescue animals to know if they are cat, dog and/or child friendly. All adoptions require one or more meet and greets to ensure that existing animals get along with their potential companion before an adoption is approved.
Why is there an adoption fee?
Every animal in our care is vet checked, desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and wormed/flea treated. We also regularly have animals that require extra vet care (such as dental, emergencies etc.). Our adoption fees help to cover theses costs for the next rescue in care, to ensure we can continue to save lives.
