We are a not for profit registered charity. All donations made to us are tax deductible. We save dogs from metropolitan and rural pounds that are in danger of being killed. These dogs are either surrendered by their owners, for any number of reasons, or have been lost and not claimed by a specific date. Once this date has been passed, they are at risk of death due solely to the lack of space in the pounds. We have volunteers who assess the dog's temperament. Because we are a community based foster care network, i.e. the dogs are fostered in volunteers homes, we make sure that all dogs are human and dog friendly, in accordance with the DPI regulations. After the dog has been in our care for approx 2 weeks, sometimes more, once the carer deems it to be socially acceptable, it is listed on the Petrescue website. We carefully vet the applicants for the dogs, as we don't want them to end up in the same situation again. Every dog is vaccinated, microchipped and desexed before being rehomed. Of course, they are vet checked as well. Some dogs are simple, others, can be very expensive, as they may be carrying injuries from previous abuse, or may have cancer or allergies that need to be treated. No dog is euthanised due to lack of funds, only terminal illness.
