Beemo and Kirra (ACT)

Beemo was listed at the pound the week before we moved into our new house. They were unable to hold him any longer, so we picked him up on the weekend, and spent the first night with our fridge, our bed, and our new dog! We nearly didn't get to adopt him, though...

Bastille and Johanna (Tasmania)

Almost exactly eight years ago, our family decided to visit our local RSPCA pet shelter in Launceston to see if we could find a dog that would make an extra member of our fur family, but also provide a companion/reason for my husband to walk regularly as part of his...

Lil and Kerry (NSW)

Our little Lil isn't meant to be here! Two years ago we lost our tiger, Murgy and brother, Bear’s melancholy persisted for months. My Mother-in-Law arranged for the people at Cootamundra Vets to send photos of kitties they had up for adoption. We committed to a...

Max and Becki (Victoria)

Max was dumped at the pound. Not only did his owners totally abandon him, they signed him over for euthanasia. He was petrified around men. Spending several days with him he came out of his shell enough to convince the manager to give him a chance. A male would...

Shawn and Sue (Collingwood)

Shawn the staffy x lab came to our home as a senior and lived till the fruitful age of 18+. He was gentle and happy dog and a close companion to Painter the rescue. Shawn taught him the world is not so scary and to relax and enjoy life. We are so sad Shawn is now gone...

Scarlett and Donna (NSW)

This girl is the most remarkable girl I’ve ever known. She was heavily pregnant when she came into my care, had only one functioning eye and was absolutely terrified from being abused. I spent hours and hours with her trying to build her trust and confidence. I was...

Matilda and Donna (NSW)

This girl was tied to a metal chain for three years whilst used for breeding. Then abandoned, was left to fend for herself and fed scraps of bread until taken to the pound. The moment I saw her I knew she was meant to be in my life. When I met her (initially to foster...

Leo and Nidhi (Victoria)

Happiness. This one simple word, although mammoth in its meaning, doesn't even come close to actually describe how i feel ever since Leo stepped into my life. The ginger giant came to us from a pound, dirty and smelly (reminds me of Phoebe's Smelly Cat)....

Sonya and Zoe (NSW)

Isolation is tough, even without a pandemic rampaging, but isolation in an animal shelter? I’d never thought about what that might be like, not until I met Sonya. Her extreme reactivity to other dogs meant that being kept in a shelter, even one as loving as hers, was...

Squeak and Amy (QLD)

Squeak was a foster from Rachie’s Ratirement Home in late 2019. Squeak was surrendered to the rescue and had developed an eye infection – one so serious that it left the rescue with only two options – euthanise or operate to have the infected eye removed. There was no...

Aria and Amy (QLD)

Aria was adopted from Rachie’s Ratirement Home in November 2018, and was my very first rescue pet. She has been the perfect role model for new additions given her confidence and the rescue’s fantastic screening process, which matches adopters up with rats that are a...

Neville and Alison (QUEENSLAND)

It was about 9pm when I got the call about Neville and his brother Louis. He had arrived at the rescue, dying from malnutrition and suffocating from an untreated respiratory infection. The prognosis was grim, we weren’t sure he would make the night, but as always we...
