Based in Wagga Wagga and the ACT, we rescue, foster and rehome (wo)man's Best Friends.

All of our volunteers are unpaid. 100% of all donations and proceeds are used to pay for veterinary treatment, pound fees, transport costs, and other costs of caring for the animals.

Our mission is to rescue and rehome healthy, treatable pets from shelters in the ACT-NSW region.

The volunteers of Best Friends Pet Rescue Association Inc embrace the  'no kill' philosophy. 'No Kill' means stopping the killing of all treatable and healthy adoptable pets. It does not mean that animals are never euthanised - euthanasia is an act of mercy to end suffering and we do not believe this word should be used to describe the killing that takes place in Australian "shelters".

We are an incorporated not-for-profit animal welfare charity and a Deductible Gift Recipient for tax purposes.


Our goal is to match pets' personalities and exercise/training requirements with people whose lifestyle they are best suited to. This reduces the chances of the pet winding up in a pound again.

  • Submit an application for adoption (via Best Friends Pet Rescue website)
  • Homechecks are conducted on short-listed approved applicant(s)
  • Best match selected according to the pet's personality and needs
  • Successful applicant notified, and must place a holding deposit while transport/pickup arrangements are made.
  • Adoption transaction completed
