About Us

about us and banner

Our mission is to prevent unnecessary euthanasia of healthy, loving, domestic pets, young or old, or with special needs, by rehoming them and giving them a second chance at life.

Sydney Dogs and Cats Home has been taking care of Sydney’s lost and abandoned animals since 1946. In 1999, we evolved into a not-for-profit organisation and an active re-homing facility, which prides itself on placing no time limit on any adoptable animal that is in our care.

Our mission is to prevent the unnecessary euthanasia of healthy, loving, domestic pets, young or old or with special needs by rehoming them and giving them a second chance at life. 

Today the Home opens its doors to up to 4000 animals each year and services 10 council areas across Sydney: Botany, Hurstville, Kogarah, Leichhardt, Marrickville, North Sydney, Randwick, Rockdale, Willoughby and Woollahra.

Being an impound facility that services the community means we do not refuse any animal that arrives by our councils regardless of their temperament, medical condition or age.  

We believe that all animals that arrive on our doorstep deserve compassion and we will continue to strive to provide the best possible care for all our animals, and be the premier rehoming facility in NSW.
