About the organisation
We are a Brisbane based charity that supports animal rescue groups. We specialize in providing funds, supplies and resources in order for rescues and carers to be able to remain financially stable and continue to take on animals in tough times. In addition to supplying much needed resources we also conduct working bees at sanctuaries, zoos, rescues and pounds. Since and during the fires of 2020 (in conjunction with ARC) we have delivered almost 3 million dollars of funding and supplies to wildlife carers and rehabilitators across Australia.
We work with domestic/companion rescue, wildlife rescue and are currently negotiation the sponsorship of work with sea turtles.
Should you want to, we can also provide opportunities for you to get up close and personal with some of the people and animals we work with. The level of involvement in the charity that you have is up to you - you are always welcome to get more hands on.
