PetRescue is a growing national movement inspiring Australians to discover the joy and unconditional love a rescue pet brings. We believe there is a home for every rescue pet and enough love to save every life.
Driven by this belief, we created the PetRescue website and embraced social media to give homeless pets a voice and make adoption the first choice for all.
Today, with the awesome support of our growing community of pet lovers, PetRescue has become Australia’s most visited charity website. Every day we bring pet seekers face-to-furry-face with thousands of adorable rescue pets from shelters and rescue groups nationwide, empowering Australians to save over 4,000 lives every month.
We’ve come a long way, but still have far to go
In Australia, around 40% of dogs and 80% of cats that enter pounds and shelters are killed because homes can't be found for them. That’s why we continue to offer our services for free and invest heavily to make it easy for potential adopters to find and save a rescue pet.
But ultimately, our great nation of pet lovers holds the power to put this right. Working together, with compassion and passion for pets, we can save every healthy, treatable pet.
