Donate Food or Supplies:
There are numerous stray cats and feral cat colonies all over Victoria and food is ALWAYS needed to help feed them. Volunteers go out daily to feed these cats and pay for food out of their own pocket. As you can appreciate it can be very costly!
We can also use both dog and cat food and supplies for Foster homes. If you would like to help this ongoing need please contact us directly to arrange pick up.

And where does the money go?
I am sure that many people are fed up with the constant plea for donations. It comes from all corners and for all needy causes. The situation with the stray and abandoned animals has gotten worse over the years, partly because of the economic situation many people have faced. Vet care has become an expense that many have tried to stretch out with the animals paying a big price. Most of the animals coming into rescue now need major medical care. Hardly any of the smaller dogs come in with good teeth, many have teeth so abscessed and rotten their sinuses and ears are also affected. We are seeing lots of ear infections, skin conditions and bladder infections.
Here’s a sample list of the vet bills we have paid:
Marley (dog)- skin condition $480 (Marley’s adoption fee was $150)
Mickey (dog)- lodged stone and bladder surgery $2704 (Mickey is a permanent foster)
Gracie (dog)- 16 teeth extracted- $985 (Gracie’s adoption fee was $150 because she is a senior)
Gus (dog)- chronic bladder issues- $816

Katie (cat)- hypothermic cat- $500 (RIP Katie )
Buddy (dog)- perianal hernia, neuter, microchip, dental $2053 (Buddy’s adoption fee was $150 because he is a senior dog)
Blackie (dog)- perianal tumours, neuter, microchip, dental $1456 (Blackie’s adoption fee was $150 because he is a senior dog)
