Q & A
I've found a pet I want to adopt - what's next?
Once you find a pet you are interested in adopting, you’ll need to contact the rescue group, shelter or pound caring for the pet to find out more. Get in touch with our animal welfare charity group in Edithvale by clicking the orange ‘find out more about this pet’ button located on the profile page. PetRescue supports hundreds of independent rescue organisations, shelters and pounds, and each set their own adoption processes and adoption fees, so you will need to contact them directly for specific information regarding the pet you are interested in. Usually, the process will consist of a chat with the group to see if the pet is potentially a good match, organising a meet and greet with the pet and then completing an application form. For more tips to get you started, please visit our ‘How To’ guide to adopting from PetRescue. Good luck with the search for your new furry family member!
Can your animal welfare charity rehome my pet?
Edithvale PetRescue supports rescue groups and shelters and pounds. Our animal welfare charity doesn't advertise pets from private individuals. You can also use our Rescue Directory to contact the rescue groups in your state, to find one which may have space to take your pet or a waiting list for pet surrenders.
Why aren't rescue pets free?
This is a question that pops up frequently and it’s easy to see why some people would think that, because they are willing to adopt a homeless dog or cat, there should be no adoption fee. Well, in a perfect world, it would be perfectly reasonable. But all rescue pets must be examined by a vet, vaccinated, microchipped and desexed. What’s more, dogs need to be tested for heartworm too. The rescue group pays for all of this out of their own pocket, so in order to make the rescue process sustainable, they need to recoup these costs, at least in part, by charging an adoption fee. In most instances, the adoption fee you pay covers the basic medical expenses incurred. However, if the pet received any extra medical treatment, it's likely that your adoption fee won’t cover these additional costs. Adoption fees generally sit somewhere between $200 and $800. Compare this to the going rate you’d pay for a puppy from a pet store (that in all likelihood came from a puppy farm) that averages between $600 and $1,200, or $100 for a kitten. On top of that, you still have to pay for vaccinations, microchipping and desexing. So, when you add it all up, rescue pets are a bargain!
