Years of Operation

Best Friends Pet Rescue has been proudly rescuing animals since 2011.

Successful Adoptions

The number of pets with ‘happy tails’ who have new loving homes and a second chance at life.


And we are always looking for more volunteers to foster, advertise, train and walk our animals.

“I rescued my kelpie cross, Elsa, through Best Friends Pet Rescue and she has changed my life. I hope I have changed hers for the better! Elsa’s foster mum was absolutely wonderful and we still occasionally keep in contact.”

These guys do such a wonderful job from start to finish! We picked up our little guy yesterday and I am honestly blown away by how organised they are with the care of these dogs (desexing, vaccinations, flea and worm treatment), as well as how wonderful our little guy looked when we picked him up. Most definitely glad we chose to adopt through this organisation 😃

We have adopted our beautiful girl Lexi from Best Friends yesterday and we are all instantly in love with her. Her foster Mum, Kristy, and volunteer Janey were both so lovely and helpful throughout the process. We are very grateful for their kindness and all the work they do to give these animals a better life. We highly recommend this organization for anyone looking to adopt a fur baby into their families.

I adopted my best friend Jeffery from Best Friends Pet Rescue and I could not recommend them enough! The process was so simple and stress free. Thank you for helping me find my new family member.

If you’re looking for the perfect best friend, BFPR deliver! After I was unsuccessful in adopting one cute dog, I was blessed to have crossed paths with my beautiful boy Sunny almost a year ago! BFPR did everything they could to make sure I ended up with the best friend to suit not only my personality and lifestyle, but also Sunny’s. I have a snuggle buddy and just all round good mate for life 💓
