Melbourne Animal Rescue Incorporated - General Appeal


Melbourne Animal Rescue Incorporated (MAR) is a not-for-profit Charity organisation in Melbourne, Australia. We are a community foster care network that was founded in July 2010.

Over 250,000 dogs and cats are unnecessarily killed across Australia each year. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the enormity of the problem of our companion pets being killed, however by focusing on each individual animal's life and how we can impact their future, we are making a difference.

MAR is made up of a network of volunteer foster carers who look after animals in their own homes until a suitable new owner is found. We have no central location (i.e. a shelter or head office), and we firmly believe in the foster care model.

We take in cats and dogs that are surrendered by their owners, abandoned, and those on death row at Victorian Pounds.

MAR is a "no-kill" organisation. This means that we go to great lengths to rehabilitate animals when they need it, instead of euthanising to save money or time. Animals that come to us can require extensive medical treatment, specialised diets, and, in the case of past neglect or abuse, emotional rehabilitation, which includes re-socialisation, behavioural modification and obedience training.

We ensure that our animals are placed in a temporary foster home that will allow them to thrive (i.e. matching them with the lifestyle of the people, and personalities of existing pets in the foster home), and we carry that diligence through to the adoption process.

We focus on 'quality over quantity' - ensuring we thoroughly rehabilitate and assess the needs of every animal in our care, whilst still rescuing as many animals as we possibly can. We are 100% volunteer run and rely on donations and our fundraising efforts to continue our vital work.
