checkyourtackle
Hi, checkyourtackle is a newly formed not for profit charity raising education, support and awareness on rare male cancers including penile, testicular and anal. With 1 in 2 Australian men being diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, it was noticed by our founders that most men’s cancers go undiagnosed, treated or discussed due to stigma surrounding men’s illness. With an estimated 72,048 cases of cancer in males in 2016, resulting in 26,566 deaths, breaking the stigma is imperative in survival. “Cancer of Unknown Primary” or CUP is the term used to describe a metastatic cancer with an unknown starting point so the fight against cancer must goes on There is no one I know who can say they DO NOT have a friend or relative that has battled this terrible disease.

Express wildlife rescue and rehab
Hello & welcome to Express Wildlife Rescue. My name is Andrea, and along with the help of my volunteers I run a not-for-profit wildlife organization based in Perth, Western Australia. We rescue & rehabilitate injured and sick wildlife, releasing the animals back into the wild when we can. Sometimes they are just too sick, and they have to be re homed with long-term loving foster carers who continue to look after them. Many of our animals come to us in a poor condition. Often malnourished, sick or injured, we provide them with veterinary care and 24 hour love needed to return them to good health. We specialize in looking after orphaned kangaroos & possums, wild birds and reptiles and we can attend a number of call outs everyday to sick or injured animals. Above is a picture of one of our rescued roos, Monopoly. His mother was shot and he was poisoned when he was just a baby. Express Wildlife rescued and cared for him for as they do so many other orphans. My team and I are very passionate about our native Australian Wildlife, and our aim is to make sure it is still here in generations to come for our children, grandchildren & great grandchildren to enjoy. To continue our valuable work we rely on our volunteers and supporters, who help us by giving up their time to help in our animal care center, help with fundraising events or kindly provide donations of food, bedding or financial support. In addition, I am a licenced snake catcher charging a nominal fee to remove and relocate unwanted visitors. Please visit our 'Snake Removal' page for more information on the types of snakes we have caught & for advice on snake bites.

Best Friends Felines Inc
Best Friends Felines are dedicated to rescuing cats and kittens from all over Brisbane and coastal areas. Whether they are rescued strays from streets and colonies , saved from death row from the pound or owner surrendered we will take them all in . When they come to us they are placed into loving foster homes where they will remain until they find their forever home however long that takes as we have a no kill policy. Recently adopted Aladar was in care for 31 months before being adopted. We will have all vet work completed whilst in our care, including desexing, vaccinating, micro-chipping and worming/flea treatments. Some come in needing more extensive vet work which they will receive in our care. Moo for example cost just over $4000 in life saving surgery within hours of arriving into care and complete her regular vet work . The adoption fees and donations are the only funding we receive to assist in continuing to re-home our cats. From January to October in 2016 we have adopted 263 felines , spent almost $80,000 on vet work and have over 130 cats currently in foster care. In 2017 we are hoping to set up a therapy companion cat program for depression and anxiety sufferers and ASD and other special needs individuals. We are also hoping to set up a pensioner desexing scheme where we assist low income earners to have their pet desexed. We have a long term goal to implement a school educational program to educate the next generation. We will continue to be their voice , we will be their advocate and we will save as many as possible.

Essentials for Women of Perth
Essentials for Women was ‘accidently’ founded in October 2014 by Lenny Jacoby, following a conversation with a friend around the need for sanitary items and basic toiletries for homeless women in Perth. Lenny set up a Facebook event to invite 60 of her friends to donate women’s underwear and sanitary products. Within 48 hours, the event had gone viral and had been sent out to over 67,000 people. To date, Essentials for Women has provided over 102,000 items to women in need in Perth and regional WA. In Perth there are 9592 homeless people every night. Forty-four percent of these people are women who are in need of this support. All items collected by Essentials for Women are distributed directly to women in need at events for homeless and through other not-for-profit organisations in Perth. At Essentials for Women, we believe that: Every woman has the right to access sanitary product; Essential toiletry items are exactly that, essential, not a luxury; By making essential items accessible to women in need, their dignity as a woman is protected.

Cat Haven WA
As Western Australia’s largest cat shelter, we take in and look after over 6500 stray and unwanted cats every year. We work with the community and government to continually improve cat welfare and reduce the feral cat problem in WA. We sterilise and rehome thousands of cats a year, or perform gentle and humane euthanasia when needed from our vet clinic. We never say no to a cat, no matter how old, sick or feral. We strive to continually educate the public and work with local government about responsible cat ownership to significantly reduce the large number of cats surrendered to Cat Haven every year. Cat Haven is a charity which derives 98% of its income from donations and with a cost of over $28 a day to keep a cat at the shelter, adding up to over $8000 a day in peak kitten season, we are constantly stretched for funds. We have a team of dedicated, animal loving staff and volunteers and every cent matters.

Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue Inc
Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue is a small charity providing a number of very important community based programs. These include Seniors for Seniors where cats are matched with older Australians who want the companionship of a pet, but feel they cannot commit to the long term care a pet would entail. These cats remain in the name of the charity and we continue to provide health care where applicable, and the owner just supplies the daily needs of the cat eg food and litter. We also provide Crisis Care while owners are hospitalised or experiencing an unexpected family emergency. With the ageing population many people are forced into parting with their much loved companion when they have to go into nursing homes. This can be extremely traumatic not only for the cat but the owner as well. We have known of some people who have refused to go into nursing homes because they were concerned that their pet of many years would be put to sleep if they weren't there to care for them. With this sort of situation happening more regularly, the charity desperately needs your help to continue it's work providing care and security to these mostly older companion cats and peace of mind for their owners.

Miss Piggy's Guinea Pig Lair Inc.
We Rescue and take in Surrendered Guinea Pigs. Due to being small animals Guinea Pigs are often forgotten about in the Rescue world. They aren't low maintenance as many people advertise. They should have Vitamin C provided daily via Vegetables as like humans they cannot produce their own. Eighty percent of their diet should also be hay/grass to keep their molars worn and their gut stabilised. The Guinea Pigs we Rescue often require an exotics vet which is often hard to find and expensive these costs add up very quickly. So if you can help the Piggies in our care we would greatly appreciate it!

In the 11 years we have donated over 340,000 items to homeless, less fortunate, Domestic Violence victims, hospitals; cancer patients, those suffering mental illnesses etc; aged care homes even wildlife carers and animal shelters; victims of natural disasters throughout Australia and also our Defence Forces serving overseas. We also buy, beg for toiletries which we put into hand sewn toiletry bags which are distributed to those in need . All these donations are delivered straight to those who need them or organisations who help them FREE OF CHARGE. OUr founders drive all over Queensland, including out to Roma, Dalby, Bundaberg, Maryborough to name but a few places in their own vehicle at their own expense, We receive no funding whatsoever. A majority of our volunteers are pensioners buy their own wool etc, or wool which is sometimes donated. If we were to be fortunate to win any of this generous money it would be used to buy wool, toiletries and fuel, all to assist our donations getting to those who genuinely need them. Thank you.

Zambi Wildlife Retreat
Zambi Wildlife Retreat is Australia's first and only animal welfare establishment that can Rescue, Rehabilitate, Re-home and offer Shelter to a wide range of species. While our focus will be on exotic animals needing retirement from zoo breeding programs, circus and private ownership, we also provide care and shelter to domestics, farm animals and native wildlife. Emergency rescue is available across all species. Managed by highly qualified staff and volunteers, Zambi Wildlife Retreat ensures the health, saftey and dignity to all animals in our care. Currently we are applying for a permit to construct an animal display establishment with the NSW government. This will enable us to conduct educational classes and seminars, which will help fund the running costs of Zambi Wildlife Retreat. Our Development Application has already been approved by local council and we are now awaiting our permit from DPI to begin construction of our new area. This area will house lions, tigers, puma, birds and reptiles. Presently we care for over 100 animals including 24 big cats (lions and tigers). We are also partnered with Open Colleges as a real world training ground for students studying to be animal carers. We are in desperate need of donations and corporate sponsorship to continue caring for the animals and to establish a secure future for the animals that call Zambi their forever home. LOTL Rescue, established in 2012, is the founding company of Zambi Wildlife Retreat and operates as a registered charity in NSW (Australia). CF23435

Assistance Dogs Australia Limited
Founded in 1996, Assistance Dogs Australia is the only national charity in Australia to provide internationally accredited assistance dogs across a diverse range of disability needs. To date we have placed more than 200 Assistance Dogs, free of charge, across Australia. 1 in 5 Australians have a disability (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2009) with social care needs far outweighing available resource. Through our work, we see first-hand the dramatic difference an assistance dog bring to their new owners, boosting long term quality of life, improving mental health and increasing mobility, freedom and independence. Assistance Dogs reduce reliance on human caregivers and act as a social ice-breaker to help relieve social isolation, anxieties and loneliness and promote greater social inclusion in their community. Eligible clients include people with congenital or acquired physical disability who require a wheelchair for mobility, children with autism and our ex-servicemen and women and first responders living with post-traumatic stress disorder. We currently have 169 people on our waiting list for an Assistance Dog. We receive no government funding, relying on the generosity of supporters to fund our work. The dedicated contribution of over 300 community volunteers provides a huge boost to the work of our 36 employees and national work program each year.

Life of Pikelet
If Life of Pikelet manages to win or place in this giveaway we're going to hand over ALL the prize to a very special rescue charity - "Paws for Thought" Rescue. This tiny little Sydney rescue made up of only a wife & husband team and a paw full of dedicated volunteers does some pretty incredible rescue work. This little rescue charity is the first port of call when it comes to some of the most neglected, oldest, broken and ill rescue cases Australia has ever seen. They take the dogs that no one wants. The pups that are dumped because they are "too old". And they take on these little dogs knowing full well that many of them are not too far off from crossing rainbow bridge. The incredible work that "Paws for Thought" Rescue do is flat out inspiring. But the work is tough. It's heartbreaking and it's never ending. Their vet bills?... Well let's just say vet bills are phenomenally large. These little dogs often need all the same medical treatments that us young healthy rescue pups need and then some. And then some more and then add more on top of that. Operations, dental, treatments, medicines, the list goes on. It's not cheap. It's not even manageable without donations just like this one I hope we can help with.

A.OK Acts of Kindness
We are a group but we prefer the term family, that don't believe anyone should be going without food or simple hygiene products no matter what the reason they are in this predicament. Every fortnight we join another group and feed the homeless in Parramatta and every 3 weeks we walk the city streets of Sydney looking for those that other charities have missed. We provide them with clean blankets, hot prepacked meals and toiletry and snack care-packs.we also give food hampers to struggling families up to 4 days a week. Everyone that helps does so as volunteers and all goods used are donated or purchased from our pockets. People should donate to us because we can only provide so much from our own funds and if they do it means that we can care for more. Please help us to help others.

Australia for Dolphins Limited
At AFD we’re working to bring an end to dolphin cruelty in its two main forms: the commercially-driven practice of dolphin hunting and the cruelty-ridden practice of keeping cetaceans in captivity for entertainment. In addition to the moral bankruptcy of stealing animals from their homes, a large body of scientific evidence suggests that dolphins suffer immense physical and psychological stress in captive environments, so we’re working hard to change the tide on the acceptability of this profit-driven industry. Using a combination of strategic litigation and political activism, we work to bring about meaningful legislative and political changes. Our ground-breaking legal action has already stopped 62 aquariums purchasing dolphins from these gruesome hunts - cutting out up to 50% of demand for the dolphins. Please help AFD raise urgently needed funds to shut them down completely, and save thousands of innocent dolphins from torture. A global law firm has prepared a detailed legal argument, and a fearless Japanese firm with a track record of winning lawsuits against the government has also joined the fight. We are desperate to launch this legal action before the next slaughter season starts in September. But the truth is, we simply don't have the money. Your generosity could help make this life-saving legal action possible.

All Breeds Canine Rescue Inc
All Breeds Canine Rescue Inc is a canine rescue that never says no to any canine in need. We take on the hard cases, the animals suffering from medical conditions that require immediate treatment at great expense, cases that many other rescues would not be willing to take on. We place all of our canines in care into loving home environments for the duration of their stay with us, until they find their forever homes. We make sure each canine in our care receives the all the love and attention that they could want to help to make their transition to a new family a lot easier for them. We rely solely on fundraising to help these canines and sometimes have to raise thousands of dollars to treat a canine's medical condition which requires a wonderful dedicated team of volunteers, each of whom give freely of their time, but often dig deeply into their own pockets to help us reach a target. To receive a share of this $5000 would make things so much easier for us financially enabling us to take in and help more canines in crisis.

Share the Dignity Ltd
Early in 2015, an article by Mia Freedman published on Mamamia caught our attention. We were shocked to learn that in Australia many homeless women and women in domestic violence shelters had to face unthinkable indignities during their monthly period. For these vulnerable and at risk women, each month brought a shameful and traumatic experience, suffering indignities such as having to clean themselves in public toilets and use paper towels or newspaper to create makeshift sanitary pads. Reading it from the comfort of our homes, with the knowledge that many Australian women couldn’t take hygiene for granted during menstruation, we knew we couldn’t allow it to continue. We believe that sanitary items should be a right NOT a privilege. In April and August we hold our collections for sanitary items, Collection points around Australia help us in our mission to ensure every woman has dignity when dealing with her monthly period.

Children's Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation Inc
For over thirty years the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) has been raising funds for research into childhood cancers. Australia has one of the highest incidences of childhood cancer worldwide. One in 500 Australian children will develop a cancer before 15 years of age – that’s 600 Australian children diagnosed every year. Childhood cancer is the single greatest cause of death from disease in Australian children, with three children losing their lives to cancer every week. In Australia, childhood cancer is second only to breast cancer in terms of the number of years of life lost by the disease. The quest to find cures for childhood cancer is one of medicine’s greatest success stories. Fifty years ago only two percent of children with cancer survived. Medical research alone has improved overall survival rates to 80 percent. With childhood cancer still the leading cause of death from disease in Australian children, there is more work to be done. There are still particular childhood cancers – such as brain tumours and neuroblastoma – with survival rates as low as 50 percent. CLCRF has a commitment to ensure this ground-breaking research continues so that the future generations will be the ones to live cancer free. The Foundation relies on the generous support of the community to continue its vital research, as we do not receive State or Federal funding.

The "Anonymous X" name stands for personal before political, thereby our aim is to raise awareness of the issues of homelessness and disadvantaged. We genuinely care about the people we helps, welfare. We will sit and listen to their stories, get to know more about their journey and what led to them sleeping on our streets. We have a volunteers program in which we run fortnightly called "X - Marks the Spot.” This is designed to give volunteers an opportunity to experience the cause they are supporting, first hand.

Perth Homeless Support Group Inc
We have seen too many people needing help in our beautiful city and feel that this group can make a difference. This group was started by Ron Reid and came into fruition in Jan 20th 2014 during the summer heatwave. There are places the homeless can access water in Perth, but it comes out warm. ProAqua has installed cold water fountains but there is a small fee to be able to access them with a recyclable bottle. So Ron came up with the idea of giving the homeless access to this luxury by gifting them with a reusable bottle and a water card that they can return and have it topped up. He then started the Facebook group, to share his idea and see if there were others who would like to do the same. There many organisations in Perth doing the best they can with limited resources to cloth, feed and support the homeless. Everyone can make a difference to a person’s day by buying them a meal or giving food and water vouchers to those on our streets. We are a group of people that believe and encourage every single individual to make a difference in any way you can. SEE THE NEED AND ACT IN A WAY THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. This group is also open to donations, non-perishable food items, food vouchers, sealed water bottles and water vouchers and refillable bottles for the Pro Aqua water fountains in the city. Packs made up of toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, women's personal hygiene products and anything you would think was a normal part of life would be gratefully received. The homeless don't always have access to these kinds of things, so anything is going to be very helpful. We take a hands-on approach to pursuing social justice in the community by responding to needs in practical ways and Referrals to other organizations that deal with homelessness. We believe in the pursuit of honesty, ethical practice, trustworthiness, and accountability in all interactions, and maintain an openness to innovative ideas and possibilities.

All meals are home cooked, fresh on the night and we try to provide options to suit all diets. In the future, we would love to raise enough money to buy a food truck and branch further out into the community.

Whether it is a family break up, moving overseas, an owner has passed away, no longer enough time to spend with your dachshund, children or any other number of reasons they come for rehoming, we work with you in a non- judgemental manner to make sure that your dachshund goes to a home where they will be ideally suited. Our dachshunds are placed with people who know and understand the quirks of this breed. All our dachshunds are desexed, vaccinated, heartwormed and invariably have to undergo extensive dentals before they can be rehomed. Any donations received go straight to the veterinary care of our dachshunds. Pounds are extremely stressful places for a dachshund so please contact us for help so that they do not have to go through one. We do not charge for helping you rehome your dachshund and we do not judge anybody who needs to rehome.

Dogs' Refuge Home (WA) Inc
The Dogs' Refuge Home is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue, care and re-homing of dogs. Established in 1935, the Dogs' Refuge Home is one of the oldest animal welfare agencies in Australia. Our activities are motivated by the fundamental understanding that dogs are entitled to the same love and respect that they unconditionally give to us. Based at 30 Lemnos Street, Shenton Park, our kennels are capable of housing up to 150 dogs. We have a pro-life policy, which ensures that no dog will be euthanised on economic grounds. Every year we take in many hundreds of dogs that have been abused, neglected or simply no longer wanted. In the past financial year we found homes for over 1300 dogs and reunited hundreds of lost dogs with their owners. Without public support we are unable to provide vital care to these beautiful dogs and save healthy, re-homeable dogs from unnecessary destruction.

Advanced Breast Cancer Group Limited
The Advanced Breast Cancer Group is a unique community based service that has been supporting women diagnosed with secondary breast cancer and their partners, families and carers throughout Queensland since 1999. We offer a professionally led group delivered on a weekly basis, both face to face and by telephone, from our Brisbane office. This enables local and rural women throughout Queensland to access psychosocial support, to share their experience and overcome the isolation they feel. Every year, we deliver two workshops in Brisbane that bring together women involved in the weekly group, their partners and family. We invite guest speakers presenting on cancer-related topics as well as facilitators leading creative expression activities. Women with advanced breast cancer are the forgotten face of breast cancer. They are not ‘survivors’ who can put their cancer behind them and get on with their lives. These are the women who have to live with the knowledge that sooner or later they will die of their disease. These women fall between the gaps, and the Advanced Breast Cancer Group has developed an efficient and effective means of bridging this gap by offering psychosocial support to find ways to live meaningful lives in the face of this frightening illness. Your support will help us continue this important work.

Pets Haven Foundation Limited
Pets Haven Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation (non-government funded) which re-homes orphan felines and canines who would otherwise have no future. Our highest value is "pro-life". We rescue from death row pounds, cruelty cases, puppy farms and the community. We endeavour to responsibly rehouse these orphans back into the community in order to give them a second chance at life. Every case is unique and each animal is managed according to their particular circumstances and current condition. Animals that do not require rehabilitation are kept at the shelter whilst awaiting their forever home, whilst those in need of medical attention are placed into approved foster homes with all medical provisions paid for by Pets Haven. When the animal has recovered and is in good health, it will then be placed up for adoption. Animals that enter Pets Haven have generally been mistreated, are malnourished, abused or neglected and often require extensive medical treatment which is always provided to ensure a full recovery. Our foster carers help immensely in that they provide a wonderful, safe and loving home environment so that the rehabilitation process can be successful.

Orange Sky Australia
Orange Sky Australia is a world first started by two 20 year-olds. These boys put two washing machines and two dryers in an old van so they could wash and dry clothes for their new homeless mates. Starting in the streets of Brisbane, Orange Sky has now grown to over 12 mobile laundry vans servicing more than 76 locations with over 600 volunteers. Despite OSL’s rather early stage and the challenges facing the homeless we have expended every effort into further restoring the respect of homeless with a new branch of Orange Sky with mobile showers. Everyone has their own tears, marks, colours, imperfections but each deserves to be handled with the same respect as we place on the garments we put in our washing machines. As our younger volunteers found out, washing takes time. It’s this time we use to foster truely positive conversations. It costs us $6 for to clean a cycle of clothes and only $3 per shower. Help us by voting, volunteering or donating today.

Animal Aid Abroad provides much needed food, medical supplies and treatment for injured, abused and overworked animals in developing countries. Funds collected are specifically used to: Providing free veterinary clinics and owner education to reduce the daily suffering of these animals; Empower and educate animal owners to improve the lives of their animals and consequently their own well-being and livelihoods. This is to be achieved by supporting local partner organisations in developing countries to run outreach clinics, mobile units, community educational programs and other innovative projects if and when they arise; Manage and maintain current sponsorship programs for partner organisations to help with the care and rehabilitation of abused, sick and abandoned working animals; Inform and raise public awareness about the plight of working animals in developing communities and advocate change. A staggering number of households in developing countries depend on working animals for their livelihood. The condition in which these animals work is extremely pitiful. They are forced to carry unimaginable loads, are beaten and underfed. Exploitation of these voiceless creatures always goes unheard. These animals are loaded with excessive weight, are made to work for long hours - sometimes without food and water. If this was not enough, they are even forced to work when they are sick or injured. Their cruel owners deliberately cause injury to the animals and prod sticks into their injuries, twist their tails as they believe this makes it easier for them to control their animals while carrying their excessive loads. Furthermore, ropes and harnesses used cause cuts and abrasions on their bodies. Weak laws and a complete lack of sensitivity among people encourages such fearless cruelty.

We are located in Western Australia. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp9I_XVTNHwaqDIdX_uuDjw “WISH” Animal Rescue is a community based, not for profit organisation, run entirely by a dedicated team of experienced volunteers. WISH seeks to provide support to existing dog owners, in a caring, positive, non judgmental fashion to assist you to work through any problems or refer you to someone who can help. We feel education is a vitally important facet and we aim to provide you with information and resources to assist you. "WISH" also see the benefits of networking and we aim to provide links to many established rescues, advocacy organisations and animal care facilities already doing great work in Australia. Contact: wishrescueteam@gmail.com ABN: 92 565 633 298 http://www.petregister.com.au/ Our beautiful "WISH" animals have wound up here, due to no fault of their own. Please email wishrescueteam@gmail.com with any enquiries.. We at WISH have made a promise to them, to find them new homes, with perfect families-who will be there forever. The adoption fee for our dogs & puppies is $550 (unless stated otherwise) and covers all the vet work that has been done/or will be done for them - Sterilisation, Microchipping, Vaccination, and they have all received Flea & Intestinal worm treatment and a vet check. They are in foster care throughout Perth, until the perfect home comes along.. ADOPTION PROCESS ... Some animals will receive more than one application for adoption, therefore some things can take a little longer than we'd like as we are a volunteer based organisation with limited resources. Adoption fee is $550 which covers the vet work that each dog recieves.Some dogs have a different adoption fee-but it depends on age and vet work... Please follow this process for your adoption enquiry; Firstly 1) http://www.wishanimalrescue.org.au/adform/ 2) Fill in our adoption inquiry form so we can learn more about you, your family and lifestyle. 3) A meet and greet can be organised with the foster carer, once questionnaire and yard pictures have been viewed. 3) Wish Animals Rescue will conduct a house check if we believe you to be a suitable applicant. 5) Adoption form & adoption fee is to be completed prior to the re homing of the animal-there is a safe two week trial period. 6) After a successful trial period, the animal becomes a permanent member of the family and their new life begins, and this is our Wish... http://www.petaddress.com.au/Default.aspx

A BETTER LIFE FOR FOSTER KIDS INC
Our project will offer to Foster Children the basic needs such as clothing, shoes, personal hygiene products, 85% of children removed from home come with nothing except what they have on. Also it will enable these children access to sporting facilities, dancing, music lessons which in turn will help these children form friendships outside their normal circle thus showing them that child abuse and neglect is not the norm they think it is because that is all they have seen.Tutoring for the children to help them catch up to their class level thus lowering the stigma these children face from their peers. If we are ever going to break this cycle of abuse and neglect from one generation to the next we need to provide these children with the parental skills they never learnt from their parents, through treating them the way children should be that is nurtured and loved and provided for and showing them they are worthy, so as when they have children they will have the ability to rasie them in a loving caring home. We can do this by education and building a strong base for them. It takes a whole community to save these children.

Sydney Fox Rescue
Sydney Fox Rescue (SFR) is a registered Australian charity and animal advocacy organisation. Since 2012 we have worked tirelessly to rescue, care for, desex and rehome a variety of introduced and native species with a particular focus on foxes and dingoes (through our program Sydney Dingo Rescue). Unfortunately, as an introduced species in Australia, the welfare of foxes often falls through the cracks. Australia as a nation, consistently fails to stand up and take responsibility for animals we brought to this country. Foxes were brought to Australia, through no desire of their own, to be hunted and slaughtered. It’s time we move past this archaic attitude and look towards more compassionate conservation methods. A share in this funding would help cover the cost of much needed expansions of our outdoor enclosures to accommodate more rescue animals in need and assist those creatures all to often forgotten. Please note: none of our foxes or dingoes are ever released. Foxes are kept under permits in accordance with relevant government regulations.

We rely on donations to help us help the ferrets who come into our care, some needing extensive and ongoing vetwork which can be quite expensive. Without the donations from kind hearted people, we couldn't help as many of the ferrets as we do. We have currently had an outbreak of distemper at one of our locations, locking this specific location down, which means any funds we have and have raised are being used to try and save as many ferrets as we can and for the huge vetbills that are to come. We run Unwanted Fuzz out of our own homes, relying on donations, and like all rescues, most of this does end up coming out of our own pockets. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Bunnies also often come to the orphanage as a result of being dumped, neglected, handed into vets or rescued through the orphanage’s rescue service. Judi & Bryce’s passion for the pet rabbit was born in 2003 when two bunnies arrived through a hole in their back fence. The two young giants were Hiro and Chi (RIP). The couple were intrigued by their intelligence and unique nature, and when they became aware of the high number of rabbits dumped in night boxes at shelters and subsequently euthanaised, their journey into pet rabbit welfare began

FareShare Australia Incorporated
FareShare rescues surplus food and cooks free, nutritious meals for Victorians doing it tough. Every year, two million Australians will experience hunger. But, over the same period, we’ll also waste 200kg of food for every man, woman and child in the nation. This doesn’t make any sense. Melbourne food charity FareShare is doing something about it by rescuing surplus, quality food from supermarkets, farmers and other businesses. With the help of 800 regular volunteers, FareShare cooks this food into 25,000 free nutritious meals a week for Victorian charities – such as soup vans, homeless shelters, food banks and school breakfast programs. We do this in Australia’s largest charity kitchen, based in Abbotsford. FareShare does not receive regular government funding to cover the costs of our operations. Your donation will help us to collect surplus food from supermarkets, farmers and other food businesses. It will also pay for the cost of running our kitchen, and then distributing food to hundreds of Victorian charities. We are fortunate to receive pro bono support from many businesses – helping to cover the costs such as maintenance of commercial kitchen equipment, packaging and offsite food storage. However, we need to raise money to keep our six refrigerated vans on the road every day, pay for electricity to run our ovens and coolrooms and employ chefs to oversee nearly 100 volunteers a day.

Last year RSPCA WA received more than 15,000 cruelty calls, investigated over 6,000 cruelty complaints, provided 130,000 days of animal care and rehomed hundreds of animals. RSPCA upholds five freedoms for animals: - freedom from hunger and thirst - freedom from discomfort - freedom from pain, injury and disease - freedom to express normal behaviour; and - freedom from fear and distress. There are many ways you can support RSPCA WA – through donations, fundraising events, volunteering, foster care, sponsorships or adopting one of our rescued animals. Visit rspcawa.asn.au for more information.

Sanfilippo Children's Foundation
Our mission is to fund medical research so a cure can be found in time for children battling Sanfilippo today and those born with it tomorrow. Sanfilippo Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that is progressive, neurodegenerative and always fatal. It is estimated that 2,000 babies are born each year worldwide with Sanfilippo and life expectancy is just 12 – 20 years. There is currently no treatment, so a child diagnosed with this condition and their family face many challenges for which the foundation was created to address. These include limited opportunity to access emerging treatment and clinical trials; lack of up to date and accurate information; and as a rare disease there is significant isolation and lack of an accessible support network dedicated to the condition. Since our inception in 2013 we have funded 6 research projects both in Australia and overseas. Our funding is critical as research in any field is highly competitive and grossly limited, but for rare diseases this is further exacerbated. Researchers struggle to obtain funding from traditional sources due to the relatively small patient numbers and inadequate return on commercial investment. We are directing much needed funds into critical research for a condition that until now has been largely neglected.

Broken Hill Pet Rescue
Broken Hill Pet Rescue is a non-profit organisation committed to saving on average 400 animals per year that are surrendered or abandoned at the Broken Hill Pound. We are unique in the way we operate acting as a stopgap, providing these animals who are at risk of being euthanised with temporary homes whilst we look for adoptive homes or alternative rescue. Our work is supported by volunteer carers, fundraising activities and donations received. Funds are spent on a variety of things to provide for the animals such as food, medicines, vetwork, topical treatments and anything else that they may require. We believe that no animal should be euthanised simply because they found themselves unwanted or in unfortunate circumstances and work tirelessy to educate the community on resposnible pet ownership. We strongly support microcipping, vaccinations and desexing of every animal in our care. We aim to support the rescues we work with both financially and with our services. We are provide extensive notes and information on our animals, temperment testing every animal that comes into our care. During busy periods of time or when we have a lot of animals going to certain rescues we will cover the costs of transport, vet work or release fees to take away some of the financial burden. To sustain the work that we do we seek support from other organisations and groups. Without donations we would not be able to provide these animals with the new start that each and every one of them deserve.

Horse Rescue Australia Incorporated
HRA began in 1986 when Sally Davies took in two horses (SJ and Gumdrop) who were badly malnourished and had injuries from cruel handling. Sally co-produced a newspaper at the time and featured the horses on an ongoing basis, so readers could follow their rehabilitation. Offers of help soon started coming in, as well as sadly, reports of horses in similar conditions. Horse Rescue Australia Inc. is a non-profit organisation and registered charity, devoted to the care and rehabilitation of horses that have been abused, abandoned or neglected. The horses come to us via a few means; surrendered by the owner, and seized/rescued horses from authorities such as the RSPCA and the Animal Welfare League. We are self-funded through memberships, sponsorships, donations and benefit events. We also have regular fundraising activities, such as an annual Open Day, 2nd hand gear sale, calendar and other merchandise sales, and at times a stall at local events. All this work is accomplished by a volunteer care-taker and small committee, with help from generous members of the public who volunteer. HRA receives no government funding. Since HRA began in 1986 over 1,500 horses have passed through our gates with the vast majority placed into new caring homes. By supporting the new owners, not allowing horses to be sold on and accepting horses back when owners can no longer care for them we are able to ensure that they will never return to the situation and conditions that led them to needing rescuing. Although sometimes heartbreaking, it is immensely gratifying when horses make a full recovery and are placed in new, caring homes. Such rehabilitation is a long and costly process, with special feeding, ongoing veterinary attention & medical care and necessities such as dentistry and farrier work. Please look through our website and see how you can help us help neglected and abused horses. You can become a member or sponsor a horse (or all of them!). We need donations, memberships, and sponsorships constantly – this is the only way the horses can get the care, feed, vet services, medicines, rugs, etc that they need and deserve.

Lynch Syndrome Australia Limited
Lynch Syndrome Australia (LSA) is the only charity in Australia advocating for Lynch syndrome, a hereditary cancer causing syndrome. It is believed that 1:280 persons may be affected yet only 5% have been diagnosed. With Lynch syndrome there is a lifetime cancer risk of up to 80% for colon cancer. For women, a lifetime risk of up to 60% for endometrial cancer. Other cancers at a much higher risk than the general population include, but are not limited to, ovarian, stomach, urinary tract, pancreatic, prostate and brain. Whilst other cancer organisations concentrate on specific cancers, LSA concentrates on a whole genetic condition. People affected have a lifetime risk of many different cancers. Everyone at LSA is a volunteer. We are five passionate women, all with full-time jobs. After a full day at work, we then come home get our families sorted and then take on LSA putting more hours in, working from our own homes after hours and on weekends. Fighting for a cause that has personally touched our lives. We are not a big corporation, we don’t yet have a nationally recognised ribbon day and donations are small. We achieve so much with so little that we have.

Ovarian Cancer Australia Limited
On average, 4 Australian women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every day; of these 3 will die. 57% of women with ovarian cancer will be dead within five years.

Women need to take control of their health and speak to their GP if they’re worried about symptoms. Ovarian Cancer Australia supports those affected by ovarian cancer, gives them a voice, facilitates research, and raises awareness on a national scale. We deliver best practice, accessible support informed by consumers. Without government funding, we rely solely on the generosity of individuals and corporate Australia to continue our vital work.

Dairy Farming Families are suffering immeasurable financial pressures bought on by the devastating drop at the farm gate of milk prices especially in Victoria and Tasmania by milk processors Fonterra and Murray Goulburn who incidentally made profits for their shareholders. Some Dairy Farming Families have already had to leave the industry and many more are on the brink of financial ruin. Abnormal rain events over the past three months in Victoria and Tasmania have increased pressure as Farmers resort to hand feeding their cows, problem is many farmers can’t afford to buy in hay because they are not being paid for their milk, many Dairy farmers are running at a loss. Aussie Helpers have assisted hundreds of Dairy Farming Families with more than three thousand round bales of hay delivered directly to farms in need free of any charge to help keep their cows fed and farms operating. It is time for all of you who really care about our Dairy Farming Families to help Aussie Helpers continue with our work, keeping in mind that we have already spent $400,000 assisting our Dairy Farmers over the past three months. We are asking you to donate, just five dollars if that's all you can afford and more if you are able as there is no help from the Government as they just don't care. We must work around Helen Keller's words and donate to get moving. "Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much" So PLEASE AUSTRALIA open your wallets and hearts and give what you can.

Good Samaritan Donkey Sanctuary Incorporated
The Good Samaritan Donkey Sanctuary (GSDS) was established in 1990 by Jo-Anne Kokas (OAM) to care for rescued donkeys. It offers shelter, food, refuge and care for abandoned, neglected, mistreated or ill donkeys. It also offers a home for donkeys that are unable to be cared for by their owners due to sickness or simply moving to an unsuitable location. Most of these donkeys come to the attention of the GSDS via the public, RSPCA, police or rangers. Sometimes the donkeys are delivered to the Sanctuary and sometimes the Sanctuary has to organise collection. The GSDS is located at Glen William which is around 30 kms south of Dungog in the picturesque Upper Hunter Valley. The property covers 300 acres which is divided into paddocks that offering both hilly and flat grazing land. A specialist Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is located on the property which includes stalls and equipment to cater for the needs of very sick donkeys that need constant care. The herd fluctuates between 70 and 150 donkeys with up to 12 in the ICU. In addition to the herd, a further 100 donkeys are currently in foster homes, mostly as companion animals and occasionally as work animals – donkeys can be used as guardians to protect herds of sheep and goats from wild dogs. These fostered donkeys always remain the property of the GSDS so they can be returned to the Sanctuary should their living or health circumstances change. The GSDS is a non-profit registered charity. It receives no government funding and relies totally on the generosity of the public.

Animals Asia Foundation (Australia) Limited
Animals Asia’s goal is to close every last bear bile farm in Asia and build respect and kindness towards bears. Currently there are over 10,000 bears confined in cages on bile farms in China, and about 1,200 suffering the same fate in Vietnam. Many bears are caged their entire lives - up to 30 years - in cages so small that they are unable to turn around or stand on all fours. As if that wasn’t cruel enough, the bears suffer regular bile extraction - a hideously painful practice involving various invasive techniques that cause massive infection in the bears. Bear bile is used in traditional medicine many ordinary household products. The cruel practice continues despite the availability of a large number of effective and affordable herbal and synthetic alternatives. Seeing these beautiful creatures suffer this pointless cruelty regularly brings us to tears. But what drives us on is working with our rehabilitated bears in our bear rescue centres in China and Vietnam. Animals Asia works with, not against, the authorities and it’s a method that works. With your help, we can achieve so much more.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia (Australia)
"My dream is to eradicate obstetric fistula from Ethiopia. I won't achieve this in my lifetime, but you can in yours" Dr Catherine Hamlin AC - Co-founder, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia We believe in a world where all women are able to deliver their babies safely and where childbirth injuries are a thing of the past. Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia has a very clear goal: we’re working to eradicate the most horrific childbirth injury, obstetric fistula – and we won’t stop until this is done. In rural Ethiopia, where women have little or no access to maternal healthcare, they will be in agonising labour for days if their birth is obstructed. If she survives, she will almost always lose her baby and suffer debilitating injuries that leave her incontinent, isolated and ashamed. Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is dedicated to restoring the health and dignity of these women who have survived horrendous – and preventable – childbirth injuries. Founded over 50 years ago by doctors Catherine and Reg Hamlin, these two surgical pioneers remained in Ethiopia following their initial three-year posting to continue treating these marginalised women. Today, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia is a healthcare network of over 550 Ethiopian staff servicing six hospitals, a rehabilitation centre, and the Hamlin College of Midwives – working to prevent the injury in the first place. To date, over 50,000 women have had their health and dignity restored. Because of generous donors around the world, this life changing treatment is provided free of charge to the patients. But there is still much more to be done.

The sanctuary focuses on poultry because they are the most exploited group of animals in today’s society, with almost 50 billion being slaughtered each year, most having been farmed in cramped windowless sheds and battery cages. Some of the residents are products of school hatching projects, which only serve to teach kids to view animals as disposable products; or have been dumped in public parks or roadsides. While the sanctuary’s primary focus is on domesticated poultry there is also a resident sheep flock, a resident pride of cats and two resident goats. All residents have a carefree existence – they are not exploited for food or clothing and are free to roam during the day. Since 2001 A Poultry Place has assisted more than 2600 beings by offering them temporary or permanent shelter. More about the philosophy behind A Poultry Place can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qqLMFBGvWI&feature=youtu.be

Foodbank WA
Foodbank WA help feed over 53,000 people every month, 22,000 of whom are children. In 2016 Foodbank provided 2.8 million kilos, which equates to over 100,000 meals a day. Hunger is a hidden crisis in Australia with over two million Australians, 1 in 6 seeking hunger relief at some point each year. Half of those in need are children. The annual Foodbank Hunger Report highlights that it’s not just the homeless and unemployed who are doing it tough but 74% of those in need are low income families including single parents. Also at risk are the elderly, people with a disability, refugees and people of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islander descent. While we have the scale and size to effectively fight hunger throughout the state, our Foodbank Hunger Report 2016 shows that there are at least 7,000 people who are being turned away every month due to the lack of available food. The need to bridge this gap becomes more compelling when you consider the benefits of ensuring every Australian has enough to eat. According to a recent Foodbank Hunger Report the return on our services include addressing immediate nutrition needs but also contributing to improvements in health, emotional wellbeing, sense of self-worth, social relationships and ultimately overall standard of living. It’s clear that every meal provides people with more than just a full stomach today. It helps them and the community in which they live to achieve a brighter future. This is why we need your help. Join us in the fight to end hunger.

We currently rescue and re-home unwanted, death row, abandoned and abused dogs from the Byron Shire; also from Grafton, Casino, Kyogle, Lismore and Ballina.. The Byron Shire Council also relies on CAWI to re-home the Shire’s impounded dogs upon their release. To financially support this, our volunteers run our second hand goods shop where 100% of the profits are directed towards veterinary treatment and finding dogs new homes. CAWI is currently working closely with Byron Shire Council in providing very successful subsidized de-sexing programs for cats and dogs in the region. All remaining funds are held in a Trust Fund working towards a Rescue and Training Centre. For some years we have been working, in cooperation with Byron Shire Council, towards obtaining a parcel of land where we can establish a facility to care for, exercise and retrain dogs, whilst they are in transition to their new homes. The main aim for CAWI is to establish a Dog Rescue and Training Centre in the local area. CAWI has great connections within our local community and we can see a fantastic future. CAWI is working hard towards the goal of changing the existing paradigm of what happens to the these dogs; to one where they have freedom to play, are fed with the best nutrition, provided with environmental enrichment and caring trainers.

We are passionate about support children in foster care and their carers. We provide a range of services to support children and their carers through the often difficult journey that is foster care. When children are removed from their homes it is often a highly stressful and traumatic time and they leave with very few if any personal possessions. The charity was founded by Kelly Doyle and Glen Gillman who are foster carers and saw first hand children arrive in to their care with nothing but the clothes (or even pajama's) they were wearing. Help us provide the basic essentials and some comfort items to these children who are removed from all that is familiar and are left with nothing.

A Seat at the Table Inc.
A Seat at the Table Inc. (ASATT Inc.) provides sponsored opportunities for young women to attend advocacy and leadership events, such as the UN International Women’s Day Breakfast. Recipients are young women aged 12 - 22 who attend a public high school and/or are seeking the services of youth organisations. Traditionally it is these young women that often face barriers to attending professional and personal development opportunities. ASATT recognises the challenges for young women who are either disengaged, from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and from regional or rural locations. Programs such as ASATTs Transferring Skills to Work Program, uses interactive and out of the box group activities to tackle the misconceptions about the labour market, boost participant confidence and demonstrate that everyone has the inherent skills to contribute to the labour market at an entry level capacity. Skills from school, home, and anywhere in between are transferable and valuable to employers. The program also includes recruitment experts and local Shero’s who inspire with their stories and share some lessons learnt from their own experiences. ASATT aims to deliver Transferring Skills to Work in School around Australia, starting with South Australia. Your support can help make this happen!

QMHR ARK MISSION
Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Association (QMHR) was established in 2011 A not for profit organisation , our desire is to help the poor, sick and underprivileged in the world. QMHR represents, serves and “helps those who cannot help themselves”. Our mission put simply is to make a difference in people’s lives no matter how small that change may be. The association’s primary objective is to provide vital resources in the way of funds, food, clothing or care to those in need. It has now been active for the past 5 years. Upon researching various charities to support and donate to, it became very evident that a portion of the donations (and their intended donation as well) does not reach the under privileged but is allocated to Charity Admin Costs (inc. wages), Operating Expenses of the Charity, Advertising & Marketing collateral development for the Charity. As a result of this, the rationale to establish an association of global compassion were 100% of all donations (financial, perishable items and non-perishable items) entirely reaches the poor and under privileged was developed and struggling families. QMHR is set up to help and benefit the poorest of the poor being ,the relief of poverty, the sick, those with disabilities, the misfortunate (orphans & abandoned children), the helpless and underprivileged, mentally Challenged Children and Adults and minorities and Refugees and struggling families.

Port Macquarie Animal Welfare Service PMAWS
Founded in 2006, Port Macquarie Animal Welfare Service (PMAWS) is a NSW Government registered charity. It is a non-profit group, dedicated to the welfare of domestic animals in the Port Macquarie/Hastings area and beyond. We help abused, abandoned and unwanted animals and rely heavily on invaluable assistance from donations, fundraising, foster carers and voluntary workers. Our group, PMAWS, aims to help create a community where every pet has a permanent loving home, every companion animal is desexed - as a precaution to limit breeding cycles - and where all animals are treated with respect and compassion. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world! Our cats and dogs are not kept in pens or cages, they live with our foster carers until they are adopted and placed in their new permanent home - no matter how long it takes, and currently do have a number of long term cats in care. We aim to find the best home for our animals, not the first one.

Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation Limited
Mitochondrial disease (mito) is a debilitating genetic disorder that robs the body’s cells of energy, causing multiple organ dysfunction or failure and potentially death. It is terminal. There is no cure and few effective treatments. One in 200 people are at risk of mito, making it the second most common, serious genetic disease after cystic fibrosis. One Australian child born each week will develop a severe or life-threatening form of mitochondrial disease. The Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (AMDF) supports sufferers and their families, funds essential research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of mitochondrial disorders, and increases awareness and education about this devastating disease. The AMDF’s mission is to support the mito community whilst seeking a cure. Founded by and working closely with those from the mito community, the AMDF strives to provide support services that help those affected by mito to feel more informed, empowered, connected and less isolated. The AMDF is committed to finding an urgently needed cure for mitochondrial disease and believe that funding research is the only way a cure and effective treatments will be developed. As such the AMDF is driving research into mito by identifying and funding strategic research initiatives that improve diagnosis and treatment, and translate into preventions and cures.

Edmund Rice Camps Qld
Edmund Rice Camps provides recreational camps programs for children aged 6-16 and families experiencing disadvantage during school holidays. Young adults volunteer as ‘big buddies’ matched with a child for the week to be their mentor, positive role model, and best mate. The children come to us through contact with Agency Groups within the community. Many come from families that may not be in a position to provide such experiences for their children, or are under pressure in some way. Referrals are taken from schools and agencies in a variety of fields in the Greater Brisbane region and beyond, including disability support, mental health, community housing, family support, social work and education. We aim to boost participants’ independence and resilience through an increased sense of self-worth, inner and outer confidence fostered by the 1-on-1 attention and friendship of our volunteers, and also provide a much-needed break from often difficult circumstances. Money raised for ERC contributes to our on-camp resources, hiring catered camp sites, a broader range of activities and the training of our volunteers. This has a positive and direct impact on the number of children for whom we can make a difference.

Youth Futures
At Youth Futures we believe that all young people matter, regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in. We are a community charity that has been helping young people realise their potential since 1988. After starting out as a crisis accommodation service in Perth’s northern suburbs, the team quickly realised that it takes a lot more than a warm meal and a roof over someone’s head to break the cycle of poverty and disadvantage. Today we offer young people across Perth the opportunity to participate in a number of Homelessness, Education and Support programs aimed at enhancing their wellbeing and increasing community participation. Our passionate team of qualified staff offer young people relaxed and non-judgemental environments where they can address their current needs and create a plan for a brighter future. We work from an empowerment model and adopt a holistic and strengths-based approach, always acknowledging that each young person we help is an individual with their own story and needs.

Taralye
Imagine the world of children who are born unable to hear their parents’ voices, listen to soothing music, learn nursery rhymes, or use language to communicate. There are approximately 20,000 children and adolescents in Australia today who have a hearing impairment, and every year, around 500 Australian babies are born with a hearing loss. Taralye supports children who are deaf or hard of hearing, and in 2016, we supported 6,500 children and their families. Our work in audiology, early intervention, and early-childhood development are all aimed towards realising our goal of giving these children the opportunity to learn, listen, and speak to their full potential. Your donation can change the world of these children and their families. Early intervention enables children who are deaf or hard of hearing to learn language and social skills at par with their hearing peers by the time they start school. A 2017 Deloitte study shows that every dollar invested on early intervention for deaf children yields a $2.20 return in terms of social, educational, vocational, and economic benefits. This means that they achieve well in school and grow into productive and gainfully employed members of society. So donate now to get the kids talking.

Southern Tas Cat Rescue Inc
We are a small group, mainly based in the Huon, Kingborough and Far South areas of Tasmania, although we will take cats from other areas if we have room. We are dedicated to rescuing and re-homing unwanted cats and kittens. STCR accepts surrendered pet cats/kittens from the public and also traps feral/stray animals. This helps protect wildlife by reducing the number of cats hunting in the local environment. STCR cat and kittens are cared for by a dedicated group of foster carers who spend considerable time and effort socialising and preparing the cats and kittens for eventual re-homing. All cats and kittens accepted by STCR are de-sexed, micro-chipped and vaccinated before being re-homed. Our organisation also works to educate the public on responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on de-sexing. We further promote and support the confinement of cats indoors or in a secure outdoor enclosure, for the safety of the cat and to help protect Tasmania’s native animals. We rely on donations from the public and our adoption fees but this barely covers our veterinary costs. Our foster carers pay for their own cat food, litter, bedding and basic veterinary supplies. Ideally, we would like to de-sex, microchip and vaccinate all cats and kittens as soon as we can, but we do not have the funds. We generally wait until a cat is adopted before we arrange veterinary procedures. No cat leaves us for a permanent home until it is de-sexed, microchipped and vaccinated. It is very upsetting to all concerned when we have no available foster carers or sufficient funds and can no longer accept surrendered cats.

Rosie's Place Inc
Rosie's Place is a place for children and young people who have been impacted by sexual assault and domestic violence. Rosie's Place has been operating for 30 years in the outer western suburbs of Sydney. Predominately the Blacktown Local Government Area and surrounding areas. Rosie's Place provides therapeutic services to our clients through counselling, support, advocacy, court support, group work, and sensory play. Rosie's Place is funded by Family and Community Services, so all our services to families are free. Rosie's Place is constantly seeking external financial support from the community to expand on our therapeutic work. Over the years additional donations and grants has allowed Rosie's Place to create and self publish resources for our clients and the wider community, as well as set up a sensory play space, garden and art therapy space and pay for a therapy dog for the service. To date Rosies Place has created 22 books and 1 board game. These publications give voice to our clients stories and their continuing struggle to hang on to their connections of hope when violence has ripped it from their young lives. We believe we have a responsibility to capture those stories of our clients to acknowledge their experiences and have their voices heard. We currently have several resources we are wanting to develop for children and young people including a protective behaviours resource, children rights card game and young mens art book. But we can only have these resources printed with the help of the community through donations.

Australian Youth Climate Coalition Limited
The Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) is an independent, non-profit and non-partisan organisation with 120,000 supporters and over 750 active volunteers nationally. We educate, engage and inspire young people to take action on climate change and sustainability. We believe that the only way to solve the climate crisis is through a social movement - a groundswell of support and momentum that is powerful enough to inspire the change we need and hold decision makers to account. We do this through: • National grassroots networks where volunteers are supported, through one-to-one mentoring and local groups. • Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network: a national network of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people who are leading climate justice campaigns. • Switched on Schools: each year we educate thousands of high school students about how to make a difference on climate change, and empower them to start their own campaigns in their school or community. • Strategic national campaigns such as stopping the Adani from wrecking our Reef and climate with their dangerous Carmichael coal mine. We are empowering our generation to make sure history is not written for us, but by us.

Fresh Start Rescue Incorporated
Fresh Start Rescue is a South East Queensland based non-profit organisation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of dogs and cats in need. We are run solely by incredible volunteers and foster carers, hence we have no shelter.

This includes: spay/neuter, microchip, vaccination, heart worm test and treatment and internal and external parasite treatments whilst in foster care. This is included in the adoption fee, meaning you save money by adopting a rescue animal. Fresh Start Rescue Incorporated receives NO funding and relies on donations from our generous volunteers and supporters. We are now a Registered Chairty so your donations over $2.00 are tax deductable!

Soul Soup Patrol, S.O.U.L. Care
Servants of United Love Incorporated is a Non-Profit Organisation who relies on the generosity of people and organisations to enable us to continue the work that we do. Our aim is to serve those who seek our assistance with kindness and compassion. Within S.O.U.L. Inc. we run the Soup Patrol, and S.O.U.L. Care. S.O.U.L. Soup Patrol is a voluntary group established to serve food, basic necessities and information on the streets to clients who seek them. Inspired by Mother Teresa of India and Pier Giorgio Frassati of Italy we attempt to reach out in Christian love to those in need in Rockingham, West Australia. The soup run goes out twice a week on a Thursday and a Sunday to six stops in the Rockingham area. We also do a Home Run to homes on a Thursday for those who are unable to get to the Soup Run stops. We have approximately 50 volunteers who donate their time to the soup run once a month. We also hand out care packages during the week for people needing assistance and are unable to afford food. The demand for food parcels has skyrocketed in the past year, and we are stuggling to keep up with the demand as we rely on donations from the public and local businesses. S.O.U.L. Care is another branch of Servants of United Love Incorporated, and is also a non-profit organisation. St, Pio's House of Hope is a safe house for homeless pregnant women and provides a loving, safe family environment. We aim to encourage and enable women to pursue positive lifestyle choices and gain strength and independence.

Open Canvas
What if you could empower someone who has experienced homelessness, a disability or other adversity by helping them exhibit art they've created and show it to the world? What if they could earn an income by selling products with their art on it, such as phone covers, tea-towels, puzzles or greeting cards? There are significant barriers faced by such artists which affect their ability to exhibit, promote and sell their art. The cost of exhibiting art in reputable galleries is significant, as is getting art online. Other barriers include accessing art supplies and mentoring opportunities with professional artists. Open Canvas was created to empower disadvantaged artists and help them with these issues. Some have lived on the street, some have disabilities, others have experienced substance abuse and addiction. We've got a website with artwork created by artists. We tell their stories, raise awareness of the issues they've experienced, and get their art out into the world for others to enjoy. Our catch-cry is for people to buy "art with heart". You can make a difference to someone's life by buying original artwork and other merchandise with art on it, such as phone covers, puzzles, tea-towels and greeting cards.

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation is a children's charity that, for more than 27 years has been purchasing essential and often life-saving medical equipment for sick and injured children in paediatric, neonatal, maternity, emergency and intensive care units in over 300 hospitals across Australia.

Humpty organises a visit to the hospital so that the donor can see their piece and hear first hand, the difference they have made.

Women's Community Shelters Limited
More than 1 in 2 women are turned away from crisis shelters when they need one. More than 60% of these women (often with their children) are leaving domestic violence. WCS exists to meet this ever-growing demand and works with local communities to develop collaborative responses to the problem by establishing new shelters. Our shelters are characterized by community ownership, strong oversight and governance, the leveraging of in-kind support from the community, and dedicated volunteer programs. Our staffing model provides support to women 24/7 on-site. WCS needs your support to help establish even more crisis shelters for women and children who are homeless or leaving domestic violence. It is our aim to open 2 new shelters by the end of 2017, another in 2018 with one in the pipeline. A new shelter would support an additional 120 women and children per annum, with outreach and advice available across the local community. We are funded on a unique and ground breaking tri-partite model, bringing together philanthropy, community and government. Can you help us change the paradigm in NSW and give these women the support they need?

International Needs Australia
International Needs Australia is a Christian organisation journeying to create a just world where girls and boys, men and women are treated equally with respect, dignity and opportunity to reach their full potential. I am SHE “From the day that I was born, my family wished I was a boy. My name is SHE… As soon as I could walk, I helped my mother cook, clean, fetch water and look after the animals. While my brothers are at school, I walk to fetch water. It’s a long way and I get scared. Sometimes men hurt me. Now I’m twelve and my parents are selling me to an old man to marry. They say it will be good for me. But it’s good for everyone except me. Because I am a girl, they think I am nothing. But I know that is not true. I can learn, I have a voice, I have dreams, I can be what I want to be. If I can see a doctor, I won’t die so young…and so often. If I go to school, I can show my village many ways to do things better. If you let me start a business I can help my family and my world. When I walk with you I can do all these things. When I walk with you, we can change the world together. Because I am SHE AND I AM NOT NOTHING!”

FOOTHILLS COMMUNITY CARE
FOOTHILLS COMMUNITY CARE is an independent, grassroots, not-for-profit charity focusing on the Dandenong Ranges and Foothills area of Outer Eastern Melbourne offering Hospitality and Community to individuals and families experiencing disadvantage, homelessness, addiction, mental illness and isolation. Over the past 15 years we have been gathering people around food, to provide a place for people to belong, connect and experience genuine hospitality. We do this through our 2 weekly community meals in Upwey on a Monday night and Ferntree Gully on a Wednesday night. Over the past 15 years we have also run our Ferntree Gully Christmas Day Lunch on December 25 for over 230 people each year, to gather together and celebrate, on what for many is a lonely and isolating time. Through our Community Casseroles Co Op we provide home cooked delivered meals for people who need some extra support for a little while, more than food it lets people know they are not alone. We provide over 7,000 meals per year, and behind every meal is a story of local humanity. We believe healthy community is only possible when we all come and share together, and what better way to do this than through hospitality. We rely heavily on volunteers and donations to continue to support our local community.

OzChild
For over 165 years OzChild has fought to provide better ways to put a safe roof over the head of our most vulnerable and at-risk children; children who, for their own safety, can no longer live with their family as the result of family violence, abuse, alcohol and substance misuse, trauma and chronic neglect. Every night of the year we keep more than 300 children safe in our foster care and kinship care programs. We provide support services to at-risk families in danger of falling apart. And we provide respite care for the families of children living with a disability to relieve some of the pressure and give the parents or carers a chance to recharge and refresh. We provide educational support and therapy. We care for kids who need it and deserve it. Each year OzChild gives more than 6,000 children, young people and their families a chance to shine.

True Blue Dreaming Inc
True Blue Dreaming is unique in that it focusses on mentoring kids in rural and remote areas, in their own communities and where there is evident disadvantage or social exclusion experienced by young people. In the Kimberley, True Blue Dreaming is designed to address the sense of alienation, lack of self-esteem and self-worth and feelings of hopelessness that many young people have reported in various studies. Other rural communities may not face such obvious disadvantage but the risks all teenagers face may be compounded by living in smaller, isolated communities and a lack of social connection. True Blue Dreaming uses young adults as role models and mentors to build meaningful relationships with young people in those communities. The mentors are predominantly University students or post graduate students who are committed to, and passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people who experience social disadvantage. They are the role models that many young people living in remote communities would seldom have an opportunity to meet without a True Blue Dreaming program. True Blue Dreaming programs currently focus on young people in the Kimberley, Pilbara and Wheatbelt regions of Western Australia. Existing programs operate in Derby, Looma, Fitzroy, Halls Creek, Port Hedland, Yandeyarra, Newman, Tom Price, Bruce Rock and Wyalkatchem.

Whitelion is a not for profit community organisation that has been supporting highly vulnerable young people in the community for more than sixteen years. Whitelion opens doors to opportunities for youth at risk aged 10-24, with specialist youth outreach services including case management, housing, mentoring, education and employment programs. By connecting these young people back to their community, Whitelion provides our young people with practical and effective supports that enable them to make positive choices in their lives. The young people that Whitelion supports have seldom had positive influences in their lives; many come from backgrounds that are characterised by multi-generational disadvantage, unemployment, substance abuse and offending behaviour. These young people require consistent, practical and intensive support to break the cycle of disadvantage and reach their full potential. Whitelion delivers integrated programs & practice approaches that go to the heart of addressing youth disadvantage. Today with a service footprint across NSW, Vic, Tas, SA and WA Australia, Whitelion provides support to over 2,000 at risk and disadvantaged young people at any given time.

Tiny Tails Rescue Adelaide Incorporated is a not for profit rescue run by dedicated volunteers helping rescue unwanted dogs & cats and giving them a second chance. Before being adopted all dogs & cats have vet work completed and are cared for in the loving homes of our foster carers. While in foster care, they get to experience the comforts of a family environment and are taught how to be a well behaved and loving pet. Once ready for adoption, we look for the best and most suitable home for every dog and cat in our care. This current kitten season we have already been inundated with abandoned kittens and our dedicated vollies are undertaking 2, 4 and 6 hourly round the clock bottle feeds. A true labour of love. We rely heavily on donations and need funding assistance to purchase kitten supplement milk, kitten and food and kitty litter. Dogs that come into our care often require medical and dental treatment all of which can be costly. ALL money raised at events is used solely for the purpose of veterinary expenses to give every animal a second chance. To contact us via email at tinytailsrescueadelaide@gmail.com

Seven Women
Seven Women is an incorporated not for profit organisation, socially and economically empowering marginalised and disabled women in Nepal through skills training and employment. Our public speaking engagements, fundraising events, donations and sales of goods raise funds to support our centres in Nepal. We began in 2007 as a grass roots development project to create change for seven women who were found operating out of a tin shed and enduring harsh discrimination as a result of being disabled. Seven Women founder Stephanie Woollard first met these women and invested in training in the hope that gaining a skill would give them a means to earn an income. Steph now designs what is sold herself and funds the project through the sale of the women's hand-made products. Through a dedicated and passionate team we have been able to establish four centres in Nepal (two in Kathmandu and two village projects) which have trained and employed over 900 women.

Starting Over Dog Rescue Ltd
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.

Global kids Charitable trust fund /Angelshope
Angels Hope was founded in September 2011 and had its national launch on 15 November 2012. We realised through personal experience, the devastating effects that bullying can have on the victim, their family and friends. We realised there was a shortage of organisations in Australia and Internationally that targeted bullying as a priority. Our family had a difficult experience with our daughter Chloe. The physical symptoms she developed as a direct result of bullying were horrendous. The clinical medical team who handled Chloe during her 5 month period of hospitalisation told us that Chloe had injuries that are exactly like a horrific car accident. They estimated it would take Chloe 2 years to get back to functioning,Chloe is going well but will always have the medical condition given to her As the father of a bullied victim, I knew that I had to do something to help not only children but also affected adults, which is why Angels Hope was created - an organisation that is expanding at an astonishing rate. Currently we are reaching an average of 60,000 visitors a week through our Facebook page (facebook.com/globalkidsangels). 6,000 of these are first time visitors, and our web page is currently receiving 2000 visitors per week this doesn't include or creative angels targeting youth which is reaching around 20,000 per week The last 12 months Angels Hope have helped approximately 3000 people directly and thousands indirectly with our ‘speak up’ page and our social media positive mentoring. What makes Angels Hope social media interactions unique is that we actively help people every day. We also involve the whole community to create cultural change. Angels Hope is implementing anti-bullying programs in schools, sporting organisations and workplaces throughout Australia. Schools will have a supportive peer group of Angels Hope advocates. Our programs allow the students to take ownership of their own mentoring and accountability. This complements the work the school is already undertaking. Parents can become involved through social media and we also provide a mentoring system outside the school community.Our website contains a ‘Speak Up’ page where the bullying victim, bystander or survivor can report confidently. This has been and continues to be very successful. Angelshope have just became charity partners with On The Line call back service logo is attached and Bullying has a strong link with homelessness

Australian Schools Plus
Every Australian child deserves a promising future, and a promising future starts with a great education. But too often, a student's future is determined by their postcode or background. Children growing up in disadvantaged circumstances consistently fall behind at school - and once behind, it's hard to catch up. Did you know that at the age of 15, students from a disadvantaged background are 2.5 years behind in their learning compared with their peers? Now you can help close this education gap. Australian Schools Plus connects you with the schools that most need your support, to help all students fulfil their potential. Your donation will go to projects designed by principals and teachers to have the greatest impact on their students’ lives, by providing extra support and resources or trialling new approaches to learning. More than 4,600 schools across Australia are eligible for support through Schools Plus. Create a brighter future for students in need by giving to a disadvantaged school today.

Preterm Infants Parents Association Inc (PIPA)
Approximately 8.7% of babies born in Australia are born premature. The Preterm Infants Parents Association Inc. (PIPA) is a Queensland based charity which offers practical and emotional support to the families of these infants born premature. Our goal is to raise awareness of premature birth and to provide understanding, information, encouragement, friendship and, where possible, financial assistance to parents of preterm infants. PIPA is maintained entirely by volunteers, most of whom are parents of prematurely born children. We have seen families lives turned upside down as they rise to the challenge of caring for a premature or sick newborn that must spend time in a neonatal intensive or special care nursery. Not only must they deal with the emotional turmoil associated with the uncertainty surrounding the prognosis of their child’s outcome but also they are often faced with financial hardship. These financial pressures may arise from the need to live away from home for extended periods, from taking unexpected leave of absences from employment, additional childcare expenses or from the costs associated with travelling back and forward to the hospital each day. That is why we need your help.

The Wayside Chapel
At The Wayside Chapel we’re not interested in fixing people; we’re interested in being there when people need us. Those we help are often at their lowest point, with a perception that they are all alone in the world. They may be people who have burned all their bridges – who have no contact with former friends or extended family. The people who turn up at the Wayside are not always easy people. Some have had such appalling experiences that their opinion of their fellow humans is at an all-time low. Many live on the streets or in circumstances that are far from safe. Some have mental illness, addictions, or vices they have become dependent on. Others are ready to turn their lives around and all it takes is a kind word and a sympathetic ear for them to ask, ‘Where do I start?’ The Wayside Chapel values every one of these people, and judges no one. Everyone is worth our time. Each person deserves to be loved. Wayside is a place where people who feel they have nothing left to live for can find a community. And when they are ready to move forward, someone who cares to walk alongside them. Wayside is swamped with people who have exhausted all their options and literally have nowhere to go and no one to turn to. We need your help to keep our doors and our hearts open to the most vulnerable people in our community.

Paws of Love Animal Rescue Inc
NOTHING BUT LOVE FROM HERE ON OUT Paws of Love Animal Rescue is dedicated to identifying the most at risk companion animals - those most likely not to make it out of pounds alive - and to providing them with the necessary rehabilitation required before matching them with a family who will ensure that they never go without, for the remainder of their lives. From the time we rescue them, they will know "nothing but love". Every donation goes directly towards the cost of vet care and rehabilitation, without which we couldn't save half the lives we save every year. We believe that animals are a special part of our community and as such, deserve to be respected and cared for as such. We are committed to helping them, one life at a time.

Cathy Freeman Foundation
Today in Australia, Indigenous children are twice as likely to be developmentally vulnerable as non-Indigenous children. The vision of the Cathy Freeman Foundation has always been ambitious but simple: An Australia where Indigenous and non-Indigenous children have the same education standards and opportunities in life. Every year the Cathy Freeman Foundation provides education programs to thousands of Indigenous children across Australia to help improve attendance, confidence and goal-setting skills. The success of our programs speaks for themselves. For example, in 2016 one of our wonderful partner schools, Xavier Catholic School in Wurrumiyanga NT, is finishing the year with a 400% increase in Year 12 graduates compared to the year before. But we need your help to keep these positive trends going. By supporting the Cathy Freeman Foundation, every dollar you donate helps us to close the education gap once and for all and help Indigenous children build bright futures.

Phangan Animal Care for Strays
Phangan Animal Care for Strays is the only clinic dedicated to wild and stray animals on Thailand's island of Koh Phangan. From our small clinic, we have sterilised 4,500 animals and treated tens of thousands of sick and injured cats and dogs as well as the occasional monkey, bird and even snake. However, we are now at a critical stage in our evolution. We now have the space to keep more animals in the clinic post-surgery since building extra indoor kennels to help reduce noise-pollution for our neighbours. We see this as a huge opportunity but we don't have the resources to increase our sterilisation efforts unless we secure a full-time vet. We rely heavily on volunteers but a full-time vet that can work alongside them and sterilise animals consistently throughout the year would mean we stop seeing big spikes in the population, stop seeing distemper and parvo outbreaks, starvation, injury, poisononings and suffering. Donate to help PACS get a vet so that we can double our efforts and end animal suffering.

Furkids Animal Rescue
We are a self funded QLD based animal rescue that survives on public donations and fundraising to keep saving lives. We have saved nearly 1000 animals in 3 years and this number continues to grow unfortunately quicker than we can help. $5,000 would go towards the purchase of a vehicle that we can use for transporting animals, collecting physical donations, food donations and vet trips where we have multiple animals being seen on any one day. Or, $5,000 could desex 40 male puppies or 30 female puppies. Or it could microchip 200 animals. Without the help from our supporters and donations such as this, we have minimal resources and rely on the Committee and Volunteers for many things that can only be sustained for so long. We spend hours at fundraisers to raise $300.......... It's not the most efficient way to raise funds, but we do what we have to do. We also pride ourselves in educating the public on many aspects of animal welfare, health, diet, training and many other topics. $5,000 is an awesome amount of money and we could only be so lucky as to be the recipient.

Every dollar received benefits the shelter directly. Our board and supporting committees consist of dedicated, unpaid volunteers. We aim to keep running cost to the absolute minimum, but keeping the shelter open is a costly affair though. Without boring you with the details, it costs $109 per day to house and feed one woman.

Moorook Animal Shelter
The Moorook Animal Shelter has been rehoming unwanted dogs and cats since 1999 and during this time the shelter has managed to home thousands of dogs and puppies, cats and kittens. The shelter has made such a difference for so many of the abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats not only in the Riverland but across South Australia The shelter was founded upon a no kill, open inclusion philosophy and does not discriminate; we provide a second chance for all ages, genders, breeds, colours and sizes as every dog and cat deserves to find a loving home. We have often taken in animals refused by other shelters. In an effort to reduce the number of animals in shelters, desexing and immunisations are included in a minimal adoption cost (for dogs this also includes micro-chipping). Our focus has primarily been the 3 Rs; rescue, rehabilitate and rehome, fundraising was always a secondary consideration with very generous supporters and sponsorships meaning that all donations were gratefully received with minimal appeals required. Unfortunately that has now changed. We receive no government assistance and the shelter is run by dedicated volunteers and aided by the public who support the essential community service the shelter provides.

Squishies Flat Faced Animal Rescue Incorporated
In 2011, Paw Prints Private Rescue began as a small all breeds cat and dog rescue group in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. After taking in a number of flat faced cats, it became apparent that there was a need for a dedicated rescue group, for these beautiful, but often horrifically neglected cats. Squishies Flat Faced Cat Rescue was founded in 2012, to give flat faced cats all the special care they need and to find them homes that understand the commitment they require. After 4 years of running Paw Prints and Squishies Cat Rescue side by side, we have now merged the two groups creating Squishies Flat Faced Animal Rescue Inc. Our focus going forward will be flat faced cat and dog breeds, while still taking other breeds, whenever possible. Squishies rescues from pounds nationwide, as well as taking private surrenders from owners who can no longer care for their pet. All animals that come into care are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and parasite treated and given all the time and support they need to be ready to find their forever homes. Squishies currently has an outstanding vet bill of over $28,000 and we are desperate to raise money for this, so we can continue to save animals in need.

Second Chance Animal Rescue Inc
Second Chance Animal Rescue was founded in 2008 after vet nurse and local shelter volunteer Marisa Debattista witnessed firsthand how many beautiful animals needed help, versus how little resources were available. Knowing she could make a change, Marisa launched Second Chance Animal Rescue with a few vet nurse friends and a handful of animals. Since then, we've grown into a network of hundreds of foster carers and other volunteers, with just as many cats and dogs in care. We're proud to say that by the end of 2015 over 6000 animals had been rescued from not-so-pleasant fates in pounds and shelters throughout Victoria, and are now happily settled in new homes around the state. (Of course, our adopters will tell you, the question remains about just who saved who!) On April 19th, 2015, after many years of planning and endless fundraising efforts, our first animal shelter opened in Campbellfield, Victoria. This allows us to save more animals and gives potential adopters the chance to meet animals in a happy, relaxed space. We'd love you to visit us. Who knows? You might just meet your new best friend. Second Chance Animal Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status Please consider a bequest to Second Chance Animal Rescue in your will. With your help, we can continue our rescue work for years to come.

Fraser Coast Pet Warriors
Our mission is to reduce the companion animal population in the Wide Bay with an effective desexing programme. With a transient human population, animals, mainly cats are abandoned and left to breed unabated; this leads to disease , injury and misery for these poor animals, as well as impacting negatively. on the environment, as roaming cats predate heavily on wildlife. Last year we rescued 251 cats and kittens, all were vaccinated, microchipped, desexed and rehomed. Seventy of these cats were taken from death row at the council pound in Hervey Bay and Maryborough and put through our foster system. We take all pregnant and mother cats to allow them to give birth and raise their kittens in foster care, many of these poor mums are skin and bone and have been having to leave their kittens to scavenge for food; we provide them with top nutrition, bring them back to health and allow them to raise their young in a loving, warm and comfortable environment, then once the kittens are weaned they are all put through our system and all are desexed, preventing thousands of births. Our volunteers work tirelessly and food and litter costs are often met by them. Vet costs, while discounted for rescue groups, are still a huge burden for our group, the more funds we can bring in, the more animals we can rescue ?

Stafford Rescue Victoria Org
Stafford Rescue Victoria was started with the intent to establish a central point of contact for those who had lost or found a Stafford. Unfortunately this service is fast becoming one of the most used. Today our aim is: *To promote the welfare of unwanted and destitute pure bred Staffords regardless of age if the quality of life is still good. *To raise funds towards this aim. To maintain funds for SRV. *To operate an adoption scheme for the protection of these dogs and to provide a happy and secure home. With the increasing popularity of the breed more Staffords are ending up in shelters or unwanted pets. In some cases the ‘Staffy’ has become the fashion accessory of youth. For some it’s a fleeting encounter as they are faced with the needs of an energetic dog that quickly becomes too demanding on their time. It’s a fact that Staffordshire Bull Terriers need to be ‘Part of the Family’. They simply cannot be left in the backyard. With a deep knowledge for the breed the current rescue co-coordinators are Jan Hutton & Linda Szirer, along with several other volunteers. There is no ‘used- by date’ placed on SRV Staffords, they are cared for and loved as long as needed until a suitable ‘Forever Home’ is found.

Celebrity Pets Rescue Charitable Trust
Celebrity Pets Rescue Charitable Trust is a rescue and rehabilitation program for animals that find themselves lost or abandoned through the local council’s impoundment procedure. We have rehomed literally THOUSANDS of beautiful creatures that deserve second chances, which in other circumstances would have met with very different fates. Because of a general lack of exposure and social skills, some unruly “Celebrities” can be more difficult to place, so we enlist the services of a behavioural specialist. Paul from Complete K9 Solutions visits each week to introduce rehabilitation programs for pooches that need extra help before being adopted. The benefit of intense assessment has been rewarded 100 fold. Many of the bigger more powerful breeds can be relocated with confidence that their new owners will have the tools to continue their rehabilitation. Our core team members spend countless volunteer hours providing the general pet care and administration duties that a Charity of this nature generates: photographing; vet runs; bathing worming and flea treatments; conducting “meet and greets”; attending endless telephone/email enquiries; placing ads; creating pet profiles; organising sterilizations; recording microchips and transfers; performing record keeping and reporting duties; and so on. We NEED help meeting the costs of running our Charity.

Unforgettable Creatures Incorporated
Unforgettable Creatures Incorporated is an Animal Rescue and Advocacy Group that does some unique work with Rescue Creatures and Humans in the Melbourne Community. We devote all our time and resources to housing and behavioural rehabilitation of creatures rescued from cruelty situations. UNC rescue dogs are mostly the big kids, bull breeds and crosses, that have no alternatives due to behavioural challenges that result from abuse and neglect. Therefor UNC promotes responsible companion animal ‘ownership’, we educate the community in how to care for a large dog, how to train them in positive, successful ways and make them safe, healthy family and community members. Most of UNC dogs are healing in foster homes. We often advocate for dogs during court proceeding and have extensively fought against the unjust Breed Specific Legislation. Unforgettable Creatures Inc collaborate with Family Violence Services, this is at the heart of our Charity. We safely house, provide care and refuge to animals of women and children fleeing family violence. We receive referrals from services like Safe Steps and Wire, when women are entering refuges and are unable to take their companions to safe houses. We reunite women and children with their creatures once long term housing is found.

The animals we rescue are in all manner of conditions (unwanted, abandoned/dumped, abused, mistreated, malnourished, starved, injured, sick, old, orphaned, newly born, pregnant)and we provide vet care, love and comfort to assist with recovery and rebuilding trust with the aim of rehoming. If quality of life cannot be assured then we enlist the aid of vets to help end their suffering, holding them and telling them they are loved to the very end. The work that we do is vital in our community, and we are often called upon by government departments, police fire and emergency, and non government organisations and charities to assist with animals in need. We are self funded so we have full time work in order to provide this money. As we are a no kill shelter, we are always full, and we are always struggling for funding, every cent goes back into the animals and we are transparent in our spending. Any assistance is urgently needed and greatly appreciated.

Australian Dingo Foundation
The Australian Dingo Foundation wants the world to respect and grasp the key role that our apex native predator plays in the equilibrium of our wild ecosystems, and how all biodiversity, and even farmers, can do better where dingoes are left unmolested. Rather than the "big bad wolf" that sheep graziers and extermination industries have historically portrayed, the dingo is in fact an amazing social and sentient species, now emerging via mounting piles of good science and understanding, as a very necessary part of a healthy eco-system. ADF is about conserving, preserving fast disappearing eastern seaboard genetic material in its original form, gathering data on all three dingo eco-types and facilitating non invasive research so we can understand and therefore instill public will to join the call for eradication to cease and conservation to flourish. Education and live experience for our visitors and all the ways we can possibly externally display our tamed ambassador dingoes, along with providing the best possible life in captivity for the world's largest collection of DNA tested pure and intact dingoes at the Dingo Discovery Sanctuary and Research Centre, is our chosen way forward.

North Qld Animal Rescue Inc
North Qld Animal Rescue (NQAR) is a completely volunteer run organisation, focusing on rescuing and rehoming homeless, dogs and cats from the Far North Queensland region.NQAR puts all rescued cats and dogs into homes with approved foster carers. We believe this gives the cat or dog the best chance at finding a new home as it removes them from a stressful shelter environment and gives them a safe space to live (and be trained) while they await their forever home. Whilst in foster care the foster family has the chance to learn about the animal’s personality so they can help potential adopters to decide whether the animal is best suited to their family. All foster carers and potential adopters have to complete an application, sign an agreement and have a property inspection done before being allowed to have any NQAR animals. This is to ensure animals will be placed in the most appropriate home for their needs. A vas majority of the animals we take into care are from the Cairns Regional Council pound. We also rescue from local pounds on the Tablelands, Mossman, Innisfail, and Charters Towers and occasionally take in owner surrendered pets. ALL animals that enter our care are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed, flea and tick treated. The desexing, vaccinations and microchipping is done at one of our chosen vet clinics and the wormers, flea and tick treatments we purchase as needed. We then put a price on our adoptable pets which if we’re very lucky, covers our costs. More often than not, dogs come into our care that need treatment for things like mange, ear infections, worm infestations, dental surgery, gastro, and parvo but also more recently we’ve had dogs who need surgery for ingrown eyelids, luxating patella and Osteochondritis Dissecans. We’re very lucky that one of our main vets give us a very generous price on these surgeries and we do get some donations from the public. We are of the opinion that once an animal comes into our care, we will do what we can to make sure it receives the treatment it needs, within reason. All donations make a difference to the lives of the NQAR rescued pets <3

In 2016, the ORRCA team celebrated 30 years of rescuing and researching whales, dolphins, seals and dugongs along the NSW coast.

Our members come from all walks of life, age groups and nationalities. Most importantly, ORRCA operates a 24 hour, 7 days a week Marine Mammal Hotline. Our Hotline is staffed by volunteers and keeps ORRCA members, Government Authorities and interested members of the public informed of marine mammal sightings, incidents and emergencies. These events are not only in NSW but often in other states or other countries. ORRCA receives limited financial grants relying on income from memberships, donations and workshops to keep the hotline and the organisation functioning. We are a non-profit organisation and have a charity status.

Express wildlife rescue
Hello & welcome to Express Wildlife Rescue. My name is Andrea, and along with the help of my volunteers I run a not-for-profit wildlife organization based in Perth, Western Australia. We rescue & rehabilitate injured and sick wildlife, releasing the animals back into the wild when we can. Sometimes they are just too sick, and they have to be re homed with long-term loving foster carers who continue to look after them. Many of our animals come to us in a poor condition. Often malnourished, sick or injured, we provide them with veterinary care and 24 hour love needed to return them to good health. We specialize in looking after orphaned kangaroos & possums, wild birds and reptiles and we can attend a number of call outs everyday to sick or injured animals. Above is a picture of one of our rescued roos, Monopoly. His mother was shot and he was poisoned when he was just a baby. Express Wildlife rescued and cared for him for as they do so many other orphans. My team and I are very passionate about our native Australian Wildlife, and our aim is to make sure it is still here in generations to come for our children, grandchildren & great grandchildren to enjoy. To continue our valuable work we rely on our volunteers and supporters, who help us by giving up their time to help in our animal care center, help with fundraising events or kindly provide donations of food, bedding or financial support. In addition, I am a licenced snake catcher charging a nominal fee to remove and relocate unwanted visitors. Please visit our 'Snake Removal' page for more information on the types of snakes we have caught & for advice on snake bites.

The HVBA also advocates on their behalf to ensure Brumbies are treated humanely at all times and we provide education and promotion to the public to raise awareness of the major problems our wild horses face by our Government. Our Hunter Valley Brumby Sanctuary provides refuge for our Brumbies while in care, especially mares that are generally trapped while pregnant and also for some Brumbies that cannot be rehomed. But for those that can be rehomed, the HVBA finds those Brumbies wonderful forever homes where they are adored by their new families. Despite our Brumbies coming from Government land, eg Kosciuszko National Park, we do not receive any Government funding and rely solely on donations.

St Kilda Mums (and our sister branches Geelong Mums and Eureka Mums, Ballarat) aim to share the joy of parenthood and save the earth’s precious resources by joining with Maternal & Child Health Nurses and social workers throughout Victoria to meet the material needs of families with young children. We collect, sort and redistribute essential nursery equipment, clothing, books and toys to families in need. By becoming a financial donor, you enable us to help the rapidly growing number of families that turn to us. Your support allows us to meet the immediate needs of families in crisis, as well as plan for our long-term future. Your gift, combined with an incredible team of volunteers and generous donations of pre-loved baby gear, means that we multiply the impact of your support. We helped 7,383 families last financial year, the average family spends $2000 on nursery equipment – multiplied by 7,383, that’s $14,766,000 those families would not have been able to afford. Through financial donations, volunteer support (we have one part-time staff member for every 100 volunteers), and donations of pre-loved baby gear, we were able to give those families everything they needed to keep their children safe for less that $1Million.

Children's Ground Limited
Why Children's Ground? Despite significant economic growth, pockets of extreme intergenerational poverty and inequity remain across Australia. Decades of extensive government and non-government programs and services have failed to overcome Australia’s greatest humanitarian crisis. In fact, the situation has deteriorated for many of these communities. Why? The current suite of services and programs tend to be poorly funded, short-term, crisis-driven, and operate in silos. This approach fails families who have multiple needs and require support from a range of services over long periods of time. It also fails to address the core problem: the cycle of intergenerational poverty and inequity.

The Thin Green Line Foundation Ltd
The Thin Green Line Foundation provides urgent aid, equipment, training and funding to Rangers and their families in low-income countries and conflict zones. The organisation also works with Indigenous Rangers in Australia and abroad. Rangers often work for little reward or recognition, risking and regularly losing their lives to protect the world’s wildlife and its fragile ecosystems. These brave men and women who stand on the frontline of conservation to safeguard our planet urgently need our help. A ranger is killed in the line of duty every three days – often violently at the hands, machetes and guns of criminal poachers. Without Rangers we stand to lose so much. The Thin Green Line Foundation (TTGLF) is the only organisation solely dedicated to providing Rangers with the assistance they deserve and need. As the official charity arm of the International Ranger Federation, TTGLF has unparalleled access to Rangers worldwide. The Thin Green Line Foundation is highly successful at delivering much needed support to Rangers, with a wide range of effective programs worldwide – from Kenya to Tanzania, Costa Rica to Guatemala, Thailand to Indonesia, and in many, many more places around the globe. In the sad circumstance of a Ranger losing his or her life in the line of duty, TTGLF helps to ensure the widows and families are looked after into the future.

Free Spirit Equestrian Center and Rescue, Inc.
FSEC is a non-profit organization. It is made up of a Mother/Daughter team who dedicate their days to caring for the animals. The main focus and goal in the start of this venture, was to save as many equines in need as possible. In the end, Tammy & Jenna saved many animals including: horses, ponies, goats, pigs, cats and their newest resident, Leopold the donkey. The farm consistently has 10 to 40 rescues at a time and the cost of rehabilitation is great. All of the animals on the property are rescued from terrible situations: either abandoned, abused and/or neglected. Some were saved from slaughter or breeding facilities. We also have a few animals who weren't lacking love, but the families could no longer care for them and so they have been granted sanctuary with us or are in the process of waiting on a forever home. Free Spirit runs solely on the generosity of others whether monetary, supplies and/or volunteer hours. It is strictly NON-PROFIT. Our goal is to not only rescue equines in need, but to allow them to also help others through therapy. FSEC has the potential to serve the community not only as a rescue but with extended goals of incorporating therapeutic riding, and emotional therapeutic outreach to organizations such as wounded warriors, shelters for abused women/children and social services/foster care children.

Peanut's Funny Farm
Our mission is to bring as many disadvantaged, neglected and abused animals and children together to provide care and rehabilitation for both. Evidence is accumulating that shows strong links between animal cruelty and other crimes including interpersonal, family, and community violence. Intervention in cases of animal abuse can be an important avenue for also preventing or identifying other abuse to children, the elderly or partner abuse. Further, evidence shows that children exposed or encouraged to engage in animal abuse are more likely to further abuse animals or to develop conduct disorders. By identifying the issue, appropriate treatment could prevent future issues for both human and non-human animals. Programs such as the one at Peanuts Funny Farm work towards dissolving potential future animal abuse and human violence by promoting kindness and compassion towards all beings. Teaching children animal-assisted activities with kindness/empathy and thoughtfulness both enhances the quality of animal welfare as well as the quality of the children’s life. When together, animals and children comfort, respect, trust and love each other and learn that they do matter. We believe this will help break the cycle and mindset of abuse as well as create a better future for both animals and children of today.

Chuffnut Cavies
Chuffnut Cavies Rescue Shelter is a guinea-pig dedicated rescue shelter in Victoria, Australia. We are the longest running, guinea-pig dedicated shelter in this state, and one of the longest running in Australia. We are a large shelter, with large costs involved, with 99% of the finances coming directly from the shelter managers own pocket. We go beyond, trying to help others to help their piggies, by offering online (FB) assistance to folks who need emergency advice for their precious piggies - this is all done without any financial gain to the shelter, only the fuzzy warm feeling that piggies in need are being helped all over the world! We take in any unwanted, sick, neglected, abused guinea pigs. We have even extended our aid to interstate animals when the shelters in those states were unable to take them. We provide these rescue animals with much-needed medical attention and good care. We rehabilitate then we rehome to the best of homes. The costs to care for up to 200 guinea pigs is often mind-blowing, especially the cost of top-quality veterinary care. Our shelter would be grateful for any assistance to hep us to continue helping unwanted or neglected pets in Victoria!

We pride ourselves on being a no kill shelter and a sanctuary for those rabbits that come into our care with such horrible histories.

Fauna Rescue Of South Australia Inc
When you find native wildlife needing help in South Australia, who do you call? Fauna Rescue SA is an independent, not-for-profit organisation providing native wildlife rescue and rehabilitation services. We operate three 24-Hour Wildlife Rescue Hotlines and the only specialist Koala Rescue Unit in SA. Our highly skilled and experienced teams of wildlife specialists are all volunteers. We receive no government funding. In the past 30 years Fauna Rescue SA has grown to become the largest wildlife welfare organisation in SA - the responsibility is huge and the financial burden greater. Rescued wildlife need specialist care. In most cases our volunteers are trained, experienced and accredited to treat them. In others we rely on support from a network of veterinary clinics across Adelaide who mostly provide us with low or no cost services. Post initial treatment these animals almost always require rehabilitation prior to release. If not for Fauna Rescue SA over 7000 sick, injured or orphaned wild animals such as koalas would simply have nowhere to go for the specialist care they require. Funds raised will help with ongoing costs such as specialist rescue equipment, medication, some veterinary services, feed, and wildlife enclosures. Fauna Rescue SA is a registered charity with deductible gift recipient status for personal donations over $2. Thank you for helping us save South Australia's native wildlife
