Our Adoption Process

When one of our animals is ready to find their new family, we list them on ​​​​ PetRescue , which is a wonderful website used by rescue groups across Australia. We also share posts about our animals on our Facebook page.

We ask anyone who is interested in adopting to complete our adoption application form which helps us to understand your home environment and lifestyle. We use this information to help us decide whether the animal you've applied for is the right match for your home. Not all animals are the right match for the people who apply for them, and while this may be frustrating we ask that you please bear in mind we make all of our decisions with our animals' wellbeing at the forefront. Should this be the case, we would be happy to assist you in finding an animal who may suit your home environment - whether it is listed with us or another group.

When we have found the right home for an animal, we arrange for 'Meet & Greets' here in Bendigo at Bush's Produce Stores.  This is an opportunity for you to come and meet the animal, and we will usually advise that if you feel it is a good match, you can adopt them and take them home with you on the day. Bush's Produce Stores are a great sponsor of our rescue and will also offer you 10% off storewide on the day to help you get set-up for your new furry family member.
