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.
At the Garage Sale and Adoption Day, all cats will be half price. That's $75 for adults and $105 for kittens under 6 months. Home checks will be waived, cats must be paid for in cash and taken home on the day. You get a 2 week trial period.
Come along and support us to raise some much needed funds for our vet bill. And adopt!
Thank you to Belinda from Canberra. She won a raffle with all these cat toys and bed, and donated them to us. She said she only had one cat and with us having so many, it would be nice for our cats and kittens to have some. We really appreciate you generosity.
We currently have 81 kittens / cats and 36 puppies / dogs in foster care. Yes that's a grand total of 117 animals!
We currently have 31 active foster carers who are looking after the 117 animals in their own homes.
Best Friends Pet Rescue covers the cost of all vet work but our foster carers pay for food / kitty litter out of their own pockets and the cost soon adds up.
Without our foster carers we would not be able to do what we do 'rescue and rehome animals'. So thank you to our team of dedicated foster carers, we appreciate all of the hard work that you do to look after your foster animals. The 117 animals in care also say thank you - without you they would not have a warm dry place to lay their heads or food in their bellies.
Please, please, please consider adopting an animal from a rescue organisation. We need your help to find loving forever homes for our 117 animals.
If you can't adopt then consider fostering.
If you can't foster then consider donating some food or kitty litter.
If you can't donate then consider becoming a volunteer.
If you can't volunteer then please spread the word 'adopt - don't shop'.
You should never judge a book by it's cover. Please don't be scared of Hendrix's intimidating looks, he’s a lover not a fighter!
Hendrix is a medium sized Bull Terrior who weighs around 20 kgs and is in foster care in the ACT. He is approximately 2 years old and was sprung from a regional pound a few weeks ago. If Hendrix was a human we would say he is a 'peoples person', he loves to be close to his foster carers and craves attention and cuddles. Sitting next to you on the lounge is not good enough for him, he has to be sitting on you or snuggled under your arm. Hendrix would make a good companion for anyone who doesn’t mind being loved to death.
Best Friends Pet Rescue will be at the official opening of the new Cootamundra Pound complex, Turners Lane. Saturday 2nd May 2015 at 9.00am the official opening is at 1.00pm.
This will be a fun and informative morning with free microchipping for Cootamundra Shire Residents, BBQ, giveaways, jumping castle, face painting and more.
The Kennel Club will be on hand to give advice on problem dogs and will be giving displays on basic obedience, trick training, tracking and basic grooming tips. The local vets will be in attendance on the day.
This is a note from the Lake Road Veterinary Clinic, but it applies to ALL animal rescue organisations:
Like every other rescue group and shelter in the area, we have NO MORE foster space or resources for unwanted kittens and cats. We have 85 felines in care now and adoptions have slowed to a trickle. If you allow your moggy to breed, you ARE part of the problem.
A week ago, we rescued this big girl from the pound. On Monday, she delivered TWELVE puppies!
In an organisation like ours, we all have certain jobs to do. One of mine is to collate and distribute the donations we have received. I am amazed at the generosity of the people of who leave donations in the bins at either Foodworks, Lake Albert or Wollundry Fruit shop and Pet Store. Thank you to everyone for your contributions, big or small, every bit helps. Maureen
