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.
I have been fostering for BFPR for two years now and just wanted to share my experience with fostering dogs, cats and kittens during this time. They just want to be cared for as you would your own animals, and most importantly they need to be safe and loved until they find the right home.
Each animal has a different personality, and a different history, and will react differently to being fostered but this is just one of the great parts to fostering. It is not always easy sometimes it is hard and messy and very tiring. But having these wonderful animals in my life is a privilege.
When a foster is adopted it's sometimes almost heartbreaking and you may wonder why you put yourself through the heartache... until the next needy comes along and you're reminded of exactly why you foster: because they need you and I often find I also need them.
Anyone in Canberra and considering a new addition to your home?
Why not consider adopting Bandit?
Bandit would make a fantastic family dog. He is laid back, playful, affectionate, gets on well with other dogs and loves people and especially children. He doesn't jump up or mouth and is just very easy to manage. For a pup he is quite lazy, and he's a bit of a clown and makes his carers laugh all the time.

We received another wonderful donation this week from the customers at Wollundry Fruit Barn and Pet World in Wagga. Thank you to the customers for the donations and to Allan for allowing us to have the donation bin in his shop.
A few days ago, a young boy put some rubbish into our PetRescue + Pedigree-sponsored pet food donation bin at Lockhart IGA. Someone pointed out his mistake and he removed his rubbish, then went home and made this sign which he put on the lid.
Everyone loves a happy story and we have two to share. Jesmond has a new bed big enough for him to stretch out on. Thanks to S.T. who donated it for him.
We also had some lovely cat toys donated by K.L. With kitten season starting they will be greatly appreciated by both our carers and the kittens.
Thank you again to the two ladies for their donations.
We need a small dog transported from Wagga to a foster home in Canberra. Is anyone driving over this week? If so, could you please contact us by filling in a "contact us" form here.
