Connecting rescue pets with potential adopters
The PetRescue website was the first of its kind in Australia when it launched in 2004. Designed to help rescue organisations reach the pet-seeking public by getting their adoptable pets online, PetRescue.com.au now brings thousands of homeless pets face-to-face with thousands of potential adopters every day. And the best part is, all our website services are free to all rescue members and pet seekers alike.
Saving rescue groups time and money
We understand that many rescue organisations lack the time, IT resources and funding to build and maintain their own website to advertise pets for adoption. A basic website can cost them anything from $4,500 to $30,000 to design and develop, then there’s the ongoing cost of hosting and maintenance, adding fees of anything from $240 to $20,000+ per year!
PetRescue is the most affordable and effective online solution for rescue organisations, with zero set-up fees, zero hosting fees, zero maintenance costs.
It takes a lot to deliver one of the world’s best pet adoption platforms for free!
What’s more, because PetRescue invests hundreds of thousands of dollars in new website development every year, our members also get some of the most innovative tech solutions for free - a mobile responsive website, advanced pet listing filtering options, an easy photo upload system, and even custom integration with external pet listing management tools, such as Sheltermate.
Keeping adopters up to date with the latest pet listings
If you’re looking to adopt a pet, you can sign up for a free PetRescue account and set up pet email alerts to be notified when a new pet is listed that matches your search criteria. Simply select ‘My Alerts’ from the sign-in drop-down menu, add your pet preferences to the form and hit ‘Create Alert’. On average, we send over 20,000 pet alerts every week!
Today, Petrescue.com.au is Australia’s largest searchable database of adoptable pets and most visited charity website.
