Dog Rescue Newcastle
BIN or Source Number: R251000026
We are a group of people, just like you, who love animals. We have decided to do something about the disgraceful number of dogs and cats who are euthanased daily right here in our local pounds. We are based in Newcastle but we rescue dogs from all over eastern NSW including Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, the Hunter Valley, Central Coast, Taree, and Mudgee. We don’t have a kennel facility. All of our pets are in loving foster homes while they are waiting to be adopted. Once we accept a dog into foster care we keep the dog for as long as it takes to find him or her a home. This can take weeks or many, many months.
Adoption Policy: ModerateThe first step is to look at the profiles of our available dogs and find one or more that you might want to adopt. Fill out our online Adoption Questionnaire: https://tinyurl.com/drnadopt. You only need to fill it out once and you can list the names of multiple dogs that you would like to inquire about. If there is a phone number listed in the dog’s profile then you can also phone for more information. Arrange to meet the pet, usually near the foster carer’s home. If that goes well we will arrange a property check so we can verify that your home and yard are suitable for the pet you’ve selected. (Sometimes we’ll do the property check before you meet the pet). If both sides agree, then you can adopt your new family member! When you pick up your new pet, you will be asked to: sign our Adoption Agreement, sign a NSW Companion Animals Register-Change of Owner/Details form, and pay the Adoption Fee by bank cheque or direct debit to Newcastle Permanent BSB: 650 000 Account: 503087208. Sorry, no personal cheques. *If paying by direct debit include the name of the pet and your surname as a comment. Make the transfer at least 24 hours before picking up your pet so we can confirm receipt. Also, please print a receipt and bring it with you. No cash payments will be taken at any point. If you have to pay by cash please visit a local Newcastle permanent branch and directly deposit into our account. Please bring the receipt when you come to pick up your new family member. (No Receipt No Handover) This is just a guide. Special arrangements and variations to the procedure are made when you live outside the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie area. Most of our pets are available for interstate adoption. Please contact us about this procedure.
