Our Mission Statement
With thousands of rescue groups and shelters across the country full, thousands die every year simply because we don’t have enough homes.
Sadly, there is a presumption that rescue pets are in some way broken. This is simply not true. Most are abandoned at 4 weeks or surrendered by the owners for other reasons.
Our aim is to not only rescue and re-home as many as we can but to also educate the public on how we can change the sufferings for thousands every year.
Over the last four years the massive overpopulation problem has been a focus in animal welfare. We have come to understand if we build bigger and better shelters/systems the more we can intake; this is simply not true & more keep coming. The importance of desexing has become a highlight and now many councils are introducing compulsory desexing laws and new regulations reducing how many dogs/cats breeders are allowed to breed per year.
We aim to promote desexing as responsible pet owner ship and to work with vets are various other desexing networks to find more cost-effective ways for the public to desex their pets.
Using free media outlets such as social media, we will & have become a voice for the voiceless.
There are many reasons why a pet may be surrendered & each one could be different; however this doesn't help our current situation of over- crowding in pounds and shelters or over loaded shelters and rescue groups.
How do we make it possible to Succeed?
At PawPrint we have Sponsors and a very supportive public! Our sponsors help us with the big stuff! But the Public help us with everything else: Donations of food; blankets; toys; bedding; kitty litter; time for human interaction & dollar donations.
Our sponsors are:
Aussie Rooster Store at Kippa- Ring. They allow us to advertise; collect donations and educate the public of the importance of animal awareness; safety & over-crowding. We hope to drive animal welfare forward promoting a more humane future for our companion animals.
Phoenix Trailers are also a major sponsor, who we are delighted to have on-board.
How can you help?
Without foster carers we simply cannot operate. Foster carers are the lifesavers of every rescue group offering kind loving homes to those in need.
Feeding pets in care can be expensive, so any food donations go a long way in helping us achieve our goals. These can be dropped off at either of our Aussie Rooster Store or to our office in Grice Street.
