Our primary mission at A Cause for Paws is to provide the physical and financial means to support rescue groups in their goal to save animals from neglect, abuse and euthanasia. Our founder discovered, through their own volunteer work, that animal rescue shelter operations rely solely on donations and volunteers. The process of rescuing animals from vulnerable situations requires considerable physical and financial resources from the initial retrieving of these animals to medically treating them within the shelter system and ultimately adopting them out to suitable new homes. Our primary aim is to use fundraising techniques to raise money for rescue groups where funds are urgently needed, as well as mobilising community support to assist with the volunteer work required to facilitate the rescue process.
Our secondary mission at A Cause for Paws is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome companion animals in need. A Cause for Paws rescues all animals, no matter their health or behavioural needs. We believe that all animals deserve a second chance at a wonderful life. Through the use of dedicated foster carers, we are able to temporarily hold animals in a safe and loving environment until they are ready for adoption. We have also joined forces with veterinary clinics around NSW, who can provide urgent veterinary care to all of our animals. We strive to successfully rehome all of our animals into homes that suit their needs and extravagant personalities, and with families that will love and care for them forever.
A Cause for Paws strongly believes in the humane treatment of animals and does not support euthanasia that is unnecessary and avoidable. ALL animals deserve the right to live a happy and healthy life, and the opportunity to experience a second chance at life. A Cause for Paws’ board members share a coinciding passion and dedication for animal welfare and rehabilitation, which ultimately has enabled our vision to come to life. The team believes heavily in unity, and trust that by working together, we can rescue, rehabilitate and rehome an increased number of animals, especially those on death row.
If you are interested in adopting one of our animals please send through an email to email@example.com and request to complete an Adoption Interest Form.
Once the form has been completed, our staff will check over all the information provided to ensure your family is a suitable fit for the animal enquired about. If suitable, we will reach out to organise a date to set up a meet and greet between your family and the animal you are interested in.
We give your family, and our team, as much time as needed to discuss your experience at the meet and greet and decide on whether the animal is going to be the new addition to your family.
A house and yard check is then completed to ensure the space is well suited to the animal.
Adoption fees and all paperwork is then completed and a two week trial will begin. The two week trial is a period of time in which the family and the animal have time to settle in together, and ensure that everything is working out okay. Once the two week trial has come to an end, our team will check in. If everything went okay, then the adoption process is completed!
