Echuca Animal Rescue Service

Echuca Animal Rescue Service is a community-based, not for profit, organisation focused on rescuing, fostering and rehoming companion animals.

We have a dream that one day all animals will be safe, loved and cared for. We believe that every life is special and deserves a second chance.

We will partly fund our veterinary and other costs by fundraising events. Any donations are gratefully accepted and are tax deductible. 

Find us here or phone 0466 983 674.

Happy Paws Animal Rescue

Happy Paws Animal Rescue is a privately run group, located in Bendigo. We rescue animals that are in dire need of a second chance and prepare them for adoption. All animals are desexed, microchipped, vaccination and Flea & Worm treated.

The adoption fee for all kittens is $150.

Campaspe Animal Shelter

Holy MEOW it’s a purry valentines adoption day not to be missed! As cupid strikes this week, we are hoping our feline friends will also be lucky in love!

For one day only we are holding a Purry Valentine Adoption Day this Caturday, February 17 at the Animal Shelter.

We have extended our operating hours to give everyone a chance to find their purrfect match.

We still have over 50 cats and kittens needing homes.

See our poster below for more details, and help us spread the word by sharing with all your friends.

There will be a post on our Facebook page this evening for everyone to share as well.

Chally Animal Rescue

Volunteers at Chally Animal Rescue come from a range of backgrounds - but we all have one thing in common; we are all passionate about helping the forgotten animals in our society. On a daily basis, this is in the form of the many foster animals we look after and adopt into loving, forever homes. But more than this, we are passionate about long-term solutions and community education; our dream is that one day we are no longer needed.
