ADOPT WITH FOREVER FRIENDS
FIND YOUR FOREVER FRIEND
Open your heart and home to a rescue animal and save a life!
Almost all our rescue animals are housed with loving foster carers across Victoria. By placing our animals in foster homes, we get to know them very thoroughly: we learn what they are like with other creatures, with children, the elderly, the training they may need and the sort of home they are best suited to. Our rescue animals are all temperament-tested, desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea-treated.
THE BENEFITS OF ADOPTING
SAVE A LIFE
You will change a homeless animal’s whole world and they will love you unconditionally for it!
Adopting is more affordable than purchasing from a breeder or puppy farm. Plus your new rescue friend is desexed, microchipped and vaccinated!
By adopting, you are helping fight unethical puppy farms and backyard breeders (reducing the supply and demand of factory-farmed animals).
Studies have shown that having a furry friend can extend your life while improving your overall happiness and health. Animals also help reduce depression, stress and anxiety.
Get out and about! Enjoy exercise and endless socialising opportunities with your furry friend.

OUR ADOPTION PROCESS
FIND A FRIEND
Browse through our animals available for adoption (the blue buttons above) and check back regularly as we rescue new animals every day!
If you spot an animal that sounds like a good match for you, send in an enquiry. One of our Volunteer Case Managers will send you an Expression of Interest form to fill out.
MEET & GREET
If you’re a good match for the animal and vice versa, we will arrange a no-obligation meet and greet for you. After this introduction, we give you time to think about it and let us know your feelings the next day.
If you want to proceed with an adoption, we then conduct an in-person or online property check to ensure the safety of your new family member.
We offer a 4-week trial and the services of our behaviourists during that time, should you have any settling-in issues. If the adoption doesn’t work out, we will take your rescue animal back for a full refund within those 4 weeks.
Fingers crossed, your adopted animal is now part of your life! And we’re always here to offer help and guidance for you and your new Forever Friend.
