Pet Rescue taking place around Australia around the clock

October 2011

The internet is now buzzing with messages from pet lovers who are rescuing pets around Australia. 

Dog Rescue

People are banding together to help abandoned and homeless pets and other animals.  Social media is playing a big part in the drive to get as many pets a home as possible.  Pet foster is becoming quite popular with people taking on homeless dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and other animals and caring for them in their own homes.  This relieves the animal shelters and provides spaces for more shelter dogs, cats, rabbits or paddocks for horses.

The types of pet animals that are commonly the recipients of pet rescue shelters and foster carers are: dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, and horses.

Cat Rescue
Rabbit Rescue
Horse Rescue

Wildlife rescue has been traditionally a known and publicly approved phenomenon with people doing short courses to become wildlife carers. 

This activity has now extended to pets with a burgeoning growth in animal welfare awareness and pet rescue groups which can take the form of just a few people who care about animals getting together and forming a social group or others who form an incorporated association. Some are just individuals that offer their time as a volunteer in an animal shelter or dog pound.

Bird Rescue

Facebook is one of the social marketing mediums used by many involved in pet rescue with people posting pets for adoption or sadly dogs on death row in the hope of saving them before their time is up.  Even a special language of the pet rescuers is developing such as shortcuts for the euphemism of dog euthanasia ‘put to sleep’ now taking the short and recognised facebook form of ‘PTS’. 

If you are interested in pet rescue and would like to help The Pet Directory has many shelter pets listed on our Adopt A Pet page and our Dog Classifieds or Cat Classifieds pages with many rescue dogs or rescue cats that need a home. You can promote them on your facebook or send the links to friends in emails. 

Please do consider adopting or fostering a pet  because these dogs and cats and rabbits etc are all looking for loving homes and sure deserve them.
