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 is a privately run, pro-life animal rescue group located in Bendigo, Victoria.

We are dedicated to rescuing animals that are in desperate need of a second chance and prepare them for adoption.

This process involves any vet work required and every animal is desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for fleas and worms.

We are currently looking for amazing people to become Foster Carers.

Fostering provides a homeless animal with a safe and loving home until a forever family can be found.

Rescue groups can only take on an animal if a Foster Carer is available, without a Carer, an animal is likely to face an uncertain future in the pound.

Fostering is an incredibly rewarding experience which literally saves the lives. For more information please

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.
