CQ Pet Rescue Inc.
BIN or Source Number: BIN0000367534014
We are a non-profit animal rescue charity based in the Central Highlands of Queensland, Australia. We foster and re-home abandoned pets from the CHRC pounds and catteries. CQ Pet Rescue Inc. was created in May 2012 due to the lack of RSPCA presence in our part of Central Queensland. A small group of people heavily donate their time and skills to keep our operation going, and we are funded purely by fundraising and adoption fees. We have a number of foster carers that help us foster cats and dogs as we take them from the pound and advertise to re-home them. All money raised is used to pay for veterinary bills and basic operational costs. We regularly do pet food drives to help keep our operational costs to a minimum. Donations $2 and over are tax-deductible. You can contact us by message on this page or via [email protected]
