Our mission is to rescue healthy, treatable pets from pounds and shelters in southern NSW & ACT and rehome them with adoptive families.
We are based in Wagga Wagga and Canberra.
Do you have room in your heart and home to provide foster care for a homeless dog, cat, puppy or kitten? The number of homeless dogs and cats we can rescue and rehome is limited by how many foster care spaces we have available. Foster homes are needed for both short term (e.g., 2-3 weeks) and long term care.
Dogs and cats are vaccinated and behaviour evaluated before being placed with a foster family. We will discuss your household situation and match you with a type of pet to suit you - a puppy, a large or small breed dog, an adult cat, or a kitten.
Yes, rescued Cavies aka Guinea Pigs! These boys need a new home, together or separate. Ring us on 0490064900 or fill in the Contact Us form to be put in touch with their foster carer.
Best Friends Pet Rescue is going to be on the cover of this year's White Pages. You can find out more information inThe Daily Advertiser's article about it by clicking on the image below.
If your neighbours' dogs bark excessively, first speak to the neighbour. Then use your council complaint process. Poisoning the dogs is a vile act!
See the article about this at The Daily Advertiser!
If this is the life you provide for a dog, don't have one!!!
Copper is having all sorts of socialisation experiences in foster care!
We are collecting a litter of Ridgeback X Staffy puppies, aged 12 weeks, from a pound on Saturday. If you are in the Wagga area and can look after a large puppy for a few weeks, please email email@example.com today. The average time in care for a puppy is 4 weeks.
I know that many of you have seen and commented on yesterday's report in the Sydney Morning Herald about the Wagga pound.
In the five years that BFPR has been in existence, 500 of the 1300 pets we have taken into our care have come from the Wagga pound. Our little group of volunteers works very hard to rescue as many pets as we can house and care for. Our hearts are not limited, but our resources are! We don't have enough foster homes, money, or time to take in any more than the 85 pets we currently have in our care. As space opens up through adoptions, we will rescue more pets from the pounds that we work with.
We can change the world, one life at a time.
