ABOUT US

We all know the animals are the real stars around here. But if you really want to peek behind the curtain, here’s a bit about the humans.
EVERYBODY NEEDS A HOME - A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN TRULY BE YOURSELF, AND FEEL SAFE AND LOVED.

SYDNEY DOGS AND CATS HOME IS A COUNCIL POUND AND NOT-FOR-PROFIT COMMUNITY FACILITY. THE HOME HAS BEEN TAKING CARE OF SYDNEY'S LOST AND ABANDONED ANIMALS SINCE 1946. AS A CHARITY ORGANISATION AND AN ACTIVE RE-HOMING FACILITY, SYDNEY DOGS AND CATS HOME PRIDES ITSELF ON NEVER PLACING A TIME LIMIT ON ANY ADOPTABLE ANIMAL... EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT TRUE LOVE TAKES TIME...

Our mission is simple – to prevent the unnecessary euthanasia of healthy, loving, domestic pets, young, old or with special needs by re-homing them and giving them a second chance at life, and to provide meaningful experiences for at-risk members of the community. Sydney Dogs and Cats Home opens its doors to over 3,000 animals each year, servicing multiple council areas across Sydney.

WE NEED A NEW HOME

We have been at our current location in Carlton, NSW since 1946 - Sadly we do not own the site we have called Home for 70 years and our landlord wishes to redevelop - rendering us homeless.

Throughout this time of change, our work will continue as it always has, caring for animals and reuniting or rehoming them will remain our first priority.

With the need to raise over $3million for a purpose built facility, we are embarking on the biggest campaign in our history.

With the help of our wonderful supporters, we will be creating a Home with more space; new kennels and exercise yards for our dogs, and a purrfect cattery for our feline friends. We plan on creating a best practice facility that our communities will be proud of.

We know the challenge ahead is large, but the animals of Sydney need us and with the support of our community we know we can achieve anything. After all, it’s how we’ve gotten this far. Please considering making a donation to to help us build our new facility.

MAKE A PLEDGE NOW. DONATE AND HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF $3 MILLION.
