Helping find a home for every pet (that needs one).
The biggest, most successful, and most secure pet adoption platform in the southern hemisphere. Our globally recognised website has helped unite millions of pet lovers with thousands of rescue pets across the nation.
Making a difference, on a large scale.
PetRescue’s powerful platform has paved the way for technology that helps the Australian rescue community and pets in need for almost two decades. When it launched in 2004, the PetRescue website was the first of its kind in Australia, and since then, it has been the connection for over 750,000 rescue pets and their new families.
Created for the Australian rescue community.
PetRescue brings rescue organisations from all over Australia under one roof, providing the rescue community with an adoption platform designed specifically for their needs. Giving adoptable pets the best chance to be seen by the pet-loving public, PetRescue.com.au brings thousands of homeless pets face-to-face with tens of thousands of potential adopters every day. And the best part is, all PetRescue website services are free and accessible to all rescue members and pet lovers alike.
PetRescue started as a simple, bootstrapped website run by one person (the same year Facebook launched, before the iPhone even existed!) Today, it’s a world-class platform with a small but dedicated team working behind the scenes to regularly improve platform capabilities and accessibility, using technology to drive and normalise adoption and create true social change.
The platform by the numbers
