We are a no-kill shelter, rescuing and re-homing abandoned dogs from death row in Sydney's pounds
  Our Policies  


NO KILL Policy has a No-Kill policy. We will house all dogs we rescue for as long as it takes to find them a loving and permanent home.

Full Return Policy
DoggieRescue stands by their dogs for life. We take our dogs back at any stage, however there is no refund and we do not charge a surrender fee.

Health Check Policy
All Doggie Rescue dogs are desexed, vaccinated and heartworm protected prior to adoption. They have also been vet-checked to confirm general good health. However, Doggie Rescue cannot guarantee the absence of any incubating illness such as kennel cough (a flu type illness common to dogs that have been in the pound environment, which is simply treated with antibiotics and a few days of bed rest) or any congenital health problems to which some breeds are prone.

The cost of all veterinary treatment subsequent to the day of adoption must be borne by the new owners.

Desexing Policy
Doggie Rescue only has desexed dogs for adoption so we only have expertise in matching up with desexed dogs. For this reason we do not adopt to families where dogs are not desexed.

'Dogs Should Be Part of the Family' Policy
We believe that dogs are happiest and most settled when they are integrated into the family. Many of the Doggie Rescue dogs haven't had the happiest of starts, and our policy is to re-home them in an environment where they will truly become a loved and participating member of the adopting family.

For this reason, we look for adopting families where the dog will be allowed access to at least part of the house while family members are home, and where the dog is able to sleep indoors - at least in the laundry or internal garage. For people who intend to sleep the dog outside in a kennel or other outside bed, or who intend to keep the dog permanently outside, a Doggie Rescue dog is not for you.

'Dogs are not to be bought on behalf of others or as a surprise' Policy does not engage in the purchase of dogs as gifts for others or as a surprise, without their direct involvement. It is most important that the whole family with any current dogs are present to make the selection of a DoggieRescue dog.

'Fully Fenced Up Yard' Policy
A good number of the dogs at Doggie Rescue ended up at the pound simply because they escaped from home, (often habitually!), so good security is absolutely paramount..
