​Rehoming service

Prior to rehoming, dogs and cats are desexed, lifetime registered, vaccinated and microchipped. They also leave the shelter with a collar and tag. The shelter has a wide range of dogs and cats for sale and all are temperament tested.

The shelter operates under a 'low euthanise' practice. This means only dogs or cats assessed to be either a danger or having an illness that would affect their quality of life are euthanised.

Cat trap cage service

​Please note, there has been an outbreak of Feline Panleukopaenia virus in Sydney. 
As a result, Council has been forced to suspend the cat trap cage service.
