Pound Rescue

General appeal - Rescue Rehabilitate Rehome


Pound Rescue is a private rescue group saving dogs and cats from death row in pounds across NSW, QLD and the ACT. We don’t discriminate on the basis of breed, age, size or health.

We rescue the urgent animals, that is, the animals that are at imminent risk of being killed – not because there is anything wrong with them but because the pound is ‘full’ or they have overstayed their welcome; or because they are distressed and not coping in the pound environment; or because they are deemed too young or too old or too unwell or are judged to be the ‘wrong’ breed; or because they are just inconvenient. We are the rescue of last resort for many of these animals.

All our rescued animals are placed in foster care where they are loved, cared for and kept safe until they find their forever home. They are microchipped, desexed, vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms. All necessary veterinary care is provided where an animal is sick or has an injury. If required we engage animal behaviourists and other experts to assist with training or rehabilitation.

Pound Rescue is self funded and relies on donations to save the animals. We are all volunteers, we don’t have any paid staff and we don’t have the overheads of operating a kennel facility. This means that all donations go directly towards the rescue and care of the animals.

Any donation you make will help us continue our work. A regular donation, however small, really helps but single donations are also very welcome. Pound Rescue is a registered charity and donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
