PetRescue does big, hairy, audacious work in two areas.
Pet search platform
Australia’s largest online pet adoption platform uniting millions of pet lovers with thousands of rescue pets across the nation looking for a home.
Pet listing management platform
The most successful pet listing management platform in Australia used by over 1,000 rescue organisations across Australia to advertise rescue pets & manage adoption enquiries for free.
Pet adoption assistance programs
Programs, events & initiatives raising awareness about pet adoption and assisting over 1,000 Australian rescue organisations to provide a better outcome for pets in need.
Innovations and initiatives to bypass the system, stem the flow or completely disrupt it.
Every year, more than 100,000* healthy pets are killed in Australia’s archaic pound system without ever being given the chance for adoption.
Pets aren’t safe. It’s time to change this.
Our latest initiatives
PetRescue is the starting point for millions of pet lovin' Australians looking to adopt a rescue pet, but did you know that we also work on big, collaborative initiatives to save even more lives?
Today, adoption is the first choice for millions of Australians. There are currently thousands of families searching and waiting for a rescue pet to welcome into their homes. 💚
Yet, it's reported that more than 100,000* healthy pets are being killed in pounds across Australia every year without ever even being offered the chance to be adopted.
In our most ambitious strategic plan yet, we’re leveraging our greatest strengths as the digital innovators and disruptors of animal welfare to develop a whole raft of positive solutions that will ultimately keep pets safe.
