800,000 pets adopted via PetRescue!
We’ve got the kind of tail-wagging joy that makes your whole body wiggle because 800,000 pets have been marked as adopted on PetRescue’s adoption platform!
Thank you to the growing PetRescue community, including rescue organisations, pounds, shelters, and vets who use the platform to find homes for literally hundreds of thousands of pets.
A pet is not a pet without a home, and this would not be possible without the hundreds of thousand pet-lovers like you that have helped bring pet adoption into the mainstream since PetRescue launched in 2004. Because of that, so many homeless pets continue to find homes on PetRescue’s free adoption platform.

"Sometimes when I feel overwhelmed I just cuddle and play with Kiki and I genuinely feel better after." - Casini
"Since being sick, I felt like I had lost purpose due to my inability to do what I used to. Training Juniper to be an adventure cat has given me a focus. She’s the perfect daily companion to get me outside but also to nap and cuddle with as well." - Anna
"There is something special about adopting a pet, not choosing them for looks or their breed but choosing them for their unconditional love." - Danielle
"Bringing him into my life put everything into perspective - all of a sudden, I had this thing I was so in love with that all the other stuff that I thought was important was less so. I believe we have a really special bond." - Mish
"She’s my best friend, in hard times and good times, she has always been there to cry or dance with." - Sam
"Oliver has really turned my world upside down; he is so loving, cheeky and adventurous - I have all the love in the world for this handsome boy. He's had a tough beginning and I just want to shower him with all my love and care." - Kiki
"He's fitted in perfectly to our family and we honestly feel like we've won the dog-lottery, we could not have dreamed of a better doggo for us!" - Helen
“We rescued Jessie in 2007, and she is now 18 years old. We loved her straight away, and she has brought so much joy to our lives. She is still a dedicated guard at the gate despite her arthritis and is almost totally deaf.
She has taught us patience and empathy while her confidence increased and she learned to trust us. She has come to work with us almost every day until recently, and she is now happily retired!” -The Hudson's
Since losing our cat Sparky a few months ago, Natasha has brought new energy to our home and made our other cat Suki come out of her shell.
Christmas Day will be much easier with Natasha around since Sparky has been at our last 18 Christmas', and this will be our first without her.’ - Sophia
“I was determined to give him the love he deserved. He stared at me the whole drive home. Later that night he sat on my lap for the first time and went to sleep. I felt so relieved that he could now sleep peacefully and that he was safe.” - Dani
“We fell in love with him immediately. Leaving the meet & greet was extremely hard not knowing if the foster family would choose us, especially when Buddy followed us to the car on our way out like "Am I coming too?". Thankfully, we got the call later that evening saying they chose us. Turns out Buddy didn't want to go back inside and kept watching the driveway after we left. We went back and brought him home three days later” -Gabby
