Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge
BIN or Source Number: BIN0000224400510
The Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge (Sippy Creek Animal Refuge Society Inc) was established in 1979. Our Mission statement is 'Giving refuge to abandoned and surrendered cats and dogs until permanently rehomed and educating the community on responsible pet ownership". The Refuge is an independent, non-profit, charitable organisation and has a non-euthanasia policy. We also run education programmes for the community on responsible animal ownership. All cats and dogs admitted to the Refuge are Vet checked, vaccinated, wormed, desexed, micro chipped and medically treated if necessary prior to being available for adoption to the public. We have comprehensive terms and conditions of sale to ensure the animals are adopted into an appropriately loving home. The Refuge is managed by an unpaid, elected committee, and run by a small staffing compliment and a large dedicated group of volunteers. The Refuge operates from a 1.08 hectare site at Sippy Creek Road, Tanawha (adjacent to the Council Pound) and can house approximately 50 dogs and 50 cats at any given time. We accept cats and dogs from the Sunshine Coast Council Pound after owners cannot be traced, and from private surrenders.
