    About Maggie's Rescue

    Maggie’s Rescue is a bit different. We are a registered animal welfare charity, a co-operative of carers that support animals in need of homes. Our goal is to find these animals their permanent homes in families who will commit to loving them for life.

    When you talk to the carer for a particular animal, that person is usually looking after the care of that animal and knows the dog or cat well.

    Any animal we rehome has been desexed, vaccinated and microchipped and we worm all animals on arrival in our care.

    We are committed to No Kill philosophy and believe that public education and desexing is the cornerstone of this. We aim to have basic obedience for each dog by the time of rehome in place and offer ongoing telephone assistance for new owners if needed.

    Please help us top up our food fund 🐱

    $2,890.00 raised
    GOAL: $20,000.00

    Now is the purrfect time to donate.  

    Did you know that a cat can be pregnant by 4 months of age? Every spring, un-desexed cats living in colonies around Sydney give birth to litters of kittens. By us caring for 40 kittens, this will mean that there are roughly 320 less stray cats on the streets over a  12 month period.

    Continuing warm weather means that kitten season never ends, it is just one long cycle. Kittens in our Foster Carer program receive the best of care which means quality, vet approved kitten food and formula. 

    Did you know that it costs rescue groups approximately $423 to feed one kitten from 4 weeks of age until it's adopted at around 12-14 weeks? That's a massive amount of food and pressure on foster carers and rescue to provide for these animals. If we don't receive financial donations we cant provide for these kittens. 

    Help us raise $20,000 to top up our Food Fund. 

    All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

    From all of us here at Maggie's Rescue... THANK YOU!
