Keep the world’s best pet adoption platform running!
This is probably the nicest ask you’ll receive this tax time. It’s not our style to call you up and ask for money, to fill your mailbox with begging letters and branded pens, or to recruit an army of chuggers to stop you in the street. We run our donation drives on a shoestring to maximise the impact of your gifts - to keep the world’s best pet adoption platform running, and to help save the lives of thousands of rescue pets every month. Please take one minute to help keep PetRescue here for everyone who needs us. Thank you.
Hello there. It seems you like visiting PetRescue. That's great!
It's a little awkward to ask, but we need your help. We don’t invest huge amounts of funds and resources in fundraising. We’re a small but growing team of pet-loving techies who look at the big picture and create radical change that improves outcomes for rescue pets Australia-wide. We depend on donations, but only 0.05% of visitors to the PetRescue website give. If you donate just $3, less than the price of a morning coffee, you can help keep PetRescue thriving and free for everyone who needs it. Thank you.
John Bishop, PetRescue Co-Founder
It feels a little awkward to say this, but we need your help.
You’re probably thinking PetRescue will be fine if you don’t give anything today. Because someone else always gives, right? But only 0.05% of visitors to PetRescue donate. And here's the thing... If every pet lover using the website donated just $15 this tax time, in less than one week we'd raise enough funds to make sure we’re here for another year - helping more people like you and thousands more rescue pets in need. So, if PetRescue is useful to you, please take a moment to help. Thank you.
Give up just one cup to help rescue pets every month.
It only takes a minute, and as little as $3 a month (a very reasonably priced coffee), to give rescue pets the very best chance of finding the love and care they need for life.

What is the one thing in the world better than Hershey chocolate? Hershey kitten of course! I am delicious, smooth, and utterly irresistible, but rather than melt your tastebuds, I will melt your heart.
I am a young adventurous fellow looking for this magical place called my forever home. Have you seen it at all? I have no idea where it is, but my foster mum says it is the most amazing place in the world, with these people called 'lucky'. I don't know what that means but I sure hope there is tuna!
I am happy, loving and snuggly. I am toilet trained with my litter and never have accidents or make a mess. I've been raised with kids of different ages and I love how snuggly they are. My adoption fee includes microchip, up to date vaccinations, parasite treatment and desex
Once you are ready to adopt, please complete the OTC Adoption Application questionnaire below. This is not a contract or agreement of any kind, just an expression of interest in the animal. We will not authorise meets unless this has been completed and only approved applications may meet the cats. Once you are approved and have submitted all relevant information, we will organise for you to meet the cat at your home, or in a public place. If you have other animals they must be at the meet.
If at the meet, you and the cat get along- you have the option of either taking the cat on the spot (in exchange for the full adoption fee paid upfront, and contract signed)- or placing the cat on hold for up to 2 days without any holding fee applicable. When adoption begins you will be provided with 7 days' worth of food for the cat, as well as what brand and type of food it is, so that you may change their diet carefully and slowly, or purchase more, if needed.
*PLEASE NOTE we do not hold cats for 3 days or longer, without a non-refundable holding deposit of $100. If you are unwilling to put a deposit on the cat, we will continue to advertise and speak with other potential adopters and so you may miss out. We have had to make the deposit non refundable to avoid time-wasters, especially when it comes to kittens under 5 months of age. The $100 holding deposit is then subtracted from the outstanding adoption fee, which is to be paid at collection of the dog. Eg if full adoption fee is $450, and you pay a $100 holding fee so we can hold the cat for a week- the day you collect the cat you will sign and adoption contract, and pay the remaining $350 fee of which $50 is non-refundable.
During the trial period, should the pet become ill, you must present it to the OTC-approved vet clinic in your area and OTC will cover any treatment needed.
On commencement of the trial period, OTC will send you a copy of your signed contract, the vaccination cards, desexing certificate and microchip number implant details.
So. Ready to roll? Then fill out the attached short form, and we will be in contact to successful applicants asap. Feel free to follow us up via Facebook page inbox.
