Maisie and Jill (Vic)

Maisie was a total nut-bag when she arrived from the rescue service. She didn't seem to know there were behavioral boudaries or things called manners. Being a Shep x kelpie she had a good dose of the smarts. The older Rafferty was her mentor and her new Mum...

Rose and Erin (Vic)

Weighed down by a heavy chain and a large spiked collar, a scared dog crept slowly out from a crumbling shed. A severed pig's head lay beside her for food and a large stick propped nearby was used to silence her lonely barking. Shaking, she gently crept up and...

Pepper and Melissa (VIC)

When Pepper was surrendered to a country pound, she was terrified of the entire world. She’d spent her whole life in a backyard. When an unfamiliar male staff member took her to the vet in the back of a van, she reacted with fear aggression when he tried to get her...

Maisie and Jill (Vic)

Maisie was dumped by her previous owner. He was happy for her to be put down as a healthy 1 year old. He said she was untrainable. We think she is a kelpie x G shep. Whatever happened to her she had extreme separation anxiety and after 80 applications to adopt her, I...

Ernie and Fiona (WA)

Mindi and Kristen (VIC)

Miss Mindi and I met through Best Friends Pet Rescue 2.5 years ago. She'd just raised and weaned 11 puppies and was anxious and underweight, though steadily improving thanks to BFPR's efforts. Her introduction to me and my middle-aged pug was a 6 hour car...

Dusty and Linda (SA)

Tom Kitten, the 13year old tabby cat who had been my son's cat since he was 4 years old, had died of kidney disease. We were very sad. On my way to work, I saw a sign outside a vet's clinic. It read : "KITTENS FOR SALE". On my way home I called in...

Oscar and Kirryn (South Australia)

My daughter and I started fostering in 2017 and fell on our feet hand rearing bottle fed babies that came into the rescue. During our first kitten season we had a litter of three kittens about a week old. We named them Max, Tabby and Callie. Little did we know how...

Team Golden Oldies and Lisa (NSW)

We began adopting senior dogs five years ago. Sadly in that time we have lost ten precious souls. When we lose an oldie we adopt another. Not to replace them, how could you. But because we know that there will always be an old dog looking for a forever home. We...

Buddy and Anne (Victoria)

I fell in love with Buddy the moment I saw his picture saying he needed a foster home. Although already having two other fosters at the time, we opened up our home and he eventually became our special foster 'fail'. From being a cute and cuddly six month old...
