Peggy's Promise is a registered not for profit Animal Welfare Charity AND Public Benevolent Institution. The first of its kind.
The team provides a One Health approach when dealing with companion animals in our community. For many, their Pet may be a sole companion and friend and we try to assist maintaining this bond by supporting owners to KEEP their pet rather than surrender to an already overburdened shelter. We offer support services for pets including but not limited to vet work ie desexing, vaccination, microchipping, emergency surgery and quality of life options. Included in health care we provide owners with flea treatment and worming. We assist with a good quality dry food as many issues come from a lack of suitable nutrition. Other assistance includes short-term emergency accommodation, grooming, leads, collars, coats, and bedding. In addition, we support with ongoing welfare checks and advice and liaise with a number of community services including police, disability support, community centers, homeless shelters, refuges and other animal welfare groups.
When a person is unable to continue to care for their pet we offer rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming. This can work toward the reduction of unwanted litters and responsible animal management.
The team consists of a number of experienced coordinators with knowledge in animal health, nutrition, and behaviour. Included are additional volunteers who offer transport, foster care, fundraising skills and administrative support.
Peggys Promise also takes in dogs & cats from pounds across NSW, we complete all vet work and find suitable homes for them.
