Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption

Mission / Objective

Sydney Pet Rescue & Adoption is a registered charity and not for profit incorporated association which has been operating since 2006.

Our dream is for a loving home for every pet and no more cruelty to animals.

Our mission:
• To rescue and re-home companion animals from Death Row in pounds, and other homeless animals
• To short circuit the surrender process, and thus reduce the number of animals reaching Death Row, by providing owners with viable alternatives to surrender, including: short term emergency foster care, assistance with locating pet friendly accommodation and assistance with re-homing
• To educate the public about responsible pet ownership, and their rights and responsibilities under the Companion Animals Act, the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, and other relevant legislation
• To promote an understanding of the valuable role companion animals play in the lives of individuals and the community
• To promote the prevention of cruelty to animals

We are committed to a No Kill policy. We don’t operate a shelter, rather our rescued pets are lovingly cared for by dedicated volunteer foster carers in their own homes, and we look after our animals as long as necessary to find them a loving forever home.

We have deductible gift recipient status and all money raised for the charity, goes directly to the cause – to care for our animals – as we are 100% volunteer run, and we also allow donors to have a say in how their generous donations are utilised.

This is a great opportunity if you want to help but are unable to adopt or foster a pet

A regular monthly donation is a great help to us as it is predictable income that assists us with planning ongoing support for our rescued pets.

  • Full sponsorship – $40 per month goes to help provide the pet’s food, flea/wormer and medical expenses which can be quite expensive.
  • Half sponsorship – $20 per month.
  • For sponsorships of 3 months or more, we will provide a Sponsorship Certificate.
  • Sponsorships are tax deductible.

Sponsorship enquiries, please email Michelle on [email protected]
