Rescue Organisations

At the Ordinary Meeting of 13 December, 2011 when considering a report regarding the Operation of our Animal Care Facility, Council resolved in part that we will work with rescue organisations approved by the Division of Local Government (Now Office of Local Government).

Rescue group applications

All rescue groups that apply to work with us must have a clause 17(1)(c) exemption granted by the Office of Local Government under the terms of the Companion Animals Act.

Once rescue organisations have completed a Rescue Organisation Application Form(110KB, PDF) and been approved, you:

  • Are invited to sign an agreement(130KB, PDF) confirming the arrangements under which you'll work with our Animal Care Facility as a rescue group
  • Can then contact our Animal Care Facility to discuss your interest in rescuing impounded or surrendered companion animals that are available for sale.

The application assessment and agreement endorsement process may take several weeks to complete.

Approved rescue organisations

When an animal is rescued from our Animal Care Facility, rescue groups must:

  • Comply with the terms of the animal rescue agreement
  • Ensure the rescued animal is cared for appropriately, registered and de-sexed prior to its sale.

A number of rescue organisations have been approved by us to rescue animals from our Animal Care Facility:
