Best Friends Pet Rescue are an association of volunteers who rescue and provide foster care in our own homes. We do not profit in any way from rescuing and rehoming pets – in fact, almost all of us are continually out-of-pocket from these activities but we do it because we care about animals! Adoption fees are set at a level that, in most cases, cover our costs of:
We rely heavily on donations to help defray costs of non-routine veterinary care such as treatment of injured or sick animals, food and chew toys, bedding, grooming supplies, collars/leads and other costs of running a rescue group. See How You Can Help for more information about our needs.
Membership in BFPR is open to anyone who supports the aims and objectives of our association.
The volunteers of Best Friends Pet Rescue embrace the No Kill philosophy. “No Kill” means stopping the killing of all treatable and healthy adoptable pets. It does not mean that animals are never euthanised – euthanasia is an act of mercy to end suffering and we do not believe this word should be used to describe the killing that takes place in Australian pounds and shelters. Every year, many healthy pets are killed in Australian pounds and shelters. For far too long, we have been told that there is no other way and that the killing is entirely the fault of irresponsible pet owners and that shelters are merely performing the public’s dirty work.
These animals’ only “crime” is that they don’t have a home. Others may be sick or injured, but they could be saved with little effort. Unfortunately, they, too, will be killed. *In the last decade, several progressive shelters have put into place a bold series of lifesaving programs and services which have dramatically reduced the death rate in their communities. The resulting success proves that there is a formula for lifesaving, and that if we are to achieve a No Kill nation, it is incumbent upon shelters nationwide to embrace the programs and services which have been proven to save lives. By working with people, implementing lifesaving programs, and treating each life as precious, a shelter can transform a community. The mandatory programs and services include:
A registered charity based in Wagga Wagga and the ACT. We rescue, foster and rehome (wo)man’s Best Friends!
Our mission is to rescue and rehome healthy, treatable pets from shelters in the ACT and NSW region.
100% of donations and proceeds are used to pay for veterinary treatment, pound fees, transport costs, and other costs of caring for the animals.
