Australia’s most visited charity website
Giving rescue pets the very best chance of finding a forever home
The PetRescue website was the first of its kind in Australia when it launched in 2004. Designed to help rescue organisations get their adoptable pets online, PetRescue.com.au makes rescue pets more accessible to the pet-seeking public.
Every day, PetRescue.com.au brings thousands of homeless pets face-to-face with more than 20,000 pet-seeking web visitors. What’s more, our member rescue organisations are able to list their rescue pets available for adoption on our website at zero cost. Today, Petrescue.com.au is Australia’s largest searchable database of adoptable pets that’s free to access for all pet seekers.
Pets on social
Sharing pets with thousands of followers
We’ve got proof that promoting rescue pets via our social media pages helps to get them adopted faster. Around 50% of the pets we post find a new home within 40 days of being featured! Every pet listed on PetRescue.com.au also has social share buttons, encouraging all visitors to share the pets they find online with their family and friends.
Getting rescue pets into 100+ stores nationwide
Many rescue pets are located in out-of-the-way shelters, or in foster carers’ homes, so by organising and promoting adoption events, we can give rescue pets the perfect opportunity to meet families looking to adopt.
We’ve helped to promote in-store and community adoption events all over Australia. And since 2015, we’ve partnered with PETstock to bring National Pet Adoption Day to more than 100 PETstock stores, helping to find loving homes for hundreds of rescue pets every year.
We also assist rescue groups, shelters and pounds in partnering with their local PETstock store to run adoption days throughout the year.
Putting rescue pets into the media
By leveraging sponsorships and partnerships with major national brands, such as PEDIGREE, PETstock, Woolworths and Sensis, we’re able to secure thousands of dollars worth of free media every month to reach millions of Australians - encouraging them to adopt their next pet.
Our ultimate goal is to get just 1 in 5 people looking for a pet to adopt, and save the lives of all homeless pets left unclaimed in Australia’s pounds.
