Our mission is to rescue healthy, treatable pets from pounds and shelters in southern NSW & ACT and rehome them with adoptive families.
We are based in Wagga Wagga and Canberra.
Do you have room in your heart and home to provide foster care for a homeless dog, cat, puppy or kitten? The number of homeless dogs and cats we can rescue and rehome is limited by how many foster care spaces we have available. Foster homes are needed for both short term (e.g., 2-3 weeks) and long term care.
Dogs and cats are vaccinated and behaviour evaluated before being placed with a foster family. We will discuss your household situation and match you with a type of pet to suit you - a puppy, a large or small breed dog, an adult cat, or a kitten.
This is one of the 5 pups/dogs and a kitten with an infected eye that our volunteers collected on Friday from a regional NSW pound. We don't know what this youngster is - some sort of hound? - but "Tully" is safe now and being fed up on fresh lamb flaps and chicken mince that kind people have donated to BFPR. Tully won't be ready for adoption for 1-2 months because we will postpone desexing surgery until he is in good condition. To donate to him and his friends, email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Meet Charlotte, one of three very pregnant queens we rescued today from a pound. They've been vaccinated and wormed, and now we wait for kittens!

Looking for that someone special....
Meet Belle. She has spent the last 8 years with her someone special. Sadly her companion died recently at the age of 82 years. Belle stayed on in the house alone for 6 weeks waiting, until she was taken into foster care.
We are seeking Belle's new special someone. She is used to being one on one. She is companionable rather than cuddly but she loves being stroked, is talkative and has a really impressive deep purr, befitting her senior years.
Do you know her special someone?
Ride needed from Wagga to Melbourne around 15 Oct. Bindi is a large dog who rides well in the car, she just sits and looks out the window.
This adorable little dude is "Teddy". He is 14 years old and was sadly surrendered to us due to a family medical crisis. We've had him desexed, vaccinated, heartworm-tested, and all of his rotten teeth removed. If you would like to apply for Teddy, or help to sponsor his adoption fee for rehoming, please email email@example.com
This is Ronnie, who is recovering in foster care after surviving Parvovirus! His sister Kayla was a lot sicker and will hopefully be discharged this afternoon after almost 3 weeks in hospital. To donate towards their treatment:
