Membership Code and Pet Listing Rules
We support the responsible and ethical rescue of companion animals and offer membership exclusively to organisations that agree to abide by our Membership Code and Pet Listing Rules. Please familiarise yourself with these documents prior to submitting a membership application.
Apply for membership to PetRescue
Membership applications take one to two weeks to be approved, after which you can begin listing pets on our site immediately.
Please note, delays in membership approval are usually due to the vet reference not being received. You can speed up this process by chasing your vet to reply to our email.
