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.
BFPR will at the Wagga Wagga Marketplace this Saturday from 10.00am to 4.00pm with puppies, cat and kittens available for adoption. Our wish is to find great homes for our fosters. BFPR has wonderful animal foster carers and did you know we have one of the largest number of rescued cats and kittens on PetRescue http://www.petrescue.com.au/groups/10142 which is a huge effort for a rural rescue. Please support us by adopting, not shopping.
Where is the Marketplace?
Best Friends Pet Rescue will be at Bunnings Warehouse on Thursday 26th March at 7pm. We will have some of our gorgeous animals with us, which are available for adoption. So come and say hi and meet some of our cute critters!

Our very beautiful Koda is still looking for her forever home. We cant understand why nobody is interested in her.
Koda loves to play with toys, swim in the creek, and cuddle on the lounge with her foster carer. She is friendly and social with other dogs. A cat-free home would be best as she likes to bark at them even through a window.
Koda knows sit and walks nicely on lead. Koda needs hormone replacement therapy, a syrup that is added to her food twice a day. This is due to spay surgery leading to light bladder leakage when she's asleep. The medication is not expensive but she will need it permanently. She is a Rhodesian Ridgeback crossed with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier
She is nearly 6 years old and completely passed that puppy stage. Her adoption fee is only $190.
If you are interested in meeting Koda, you can contact us by filling in our Contact Us form.
Alternatively, if you are interested in adopting her, you can fill in an Adoption Application form.
Ratbag is LOST in Glenfield (Wagga), he is an ex-BFPR cat. Black and white, medium-haired, microchipped, and wearing a blue collar.
This young mumma came into care pregnant and had three gorgeous kittens who all were adopted, Bing, Lizzy and Darcy. Her rear paw had been broken in the past and left to heal on its own. A week ago she accidently broke her right rear leg. I braced myself for the worst, she would have to be put down, we are a small scale rescue with no funding. But to my happy surprise, no she was not just a cat she is worthy and loved and BFPR could fund her operation, her leg was so badly broken that it was amputated. Tildi is the most amazing cat, she is walking, using the litter, adapting and getting stronger everyday. She is now a three-legged cat and when she has fully recovered will be looking to find the wonderful caring home she deserves.

Aren't they cute!
One of our carers who normally has three of these gorgeous puppies, was asked to puppy sit while another carer was away and ended up with six puppies.
She decided to be ambitious and managed to get them all to sit and wait for their dinner. These are six of the 10 of a litter we took in 5 weeks ago and are now all looking very healthy. All are ready for adoption with some already having interest.
Use trainers who understand that animal behaviour is a science - it is predictable and behaviours can be learned and unlearned using reliable positive teaching methods. If your trainer advocates using punishment and dominance - get your dog outta there!
