Who We Are
Sydney Dogs & Cats Home is Sydney's only charity pound and community facility.
The Home has been taking care of Sydney's lost, abandoned and neglected pets since 1946. We open our doors to up to thousands of pets each year, servicing multiple council areas across Sydney including:
We aim to provide shelter, food and veterinary care to lost, homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs and cats, in association with the local councils of Sydney. We act under the NSW Companion Animals Act 1998 and the associated Companion Animals Regulations and Codes of Practice and care for pets until a time when such animals can either be reunited with their owners or found a new, suitable home.
We support the Getting to Zero movement, which means we strive to rehome every healthy and treatable animal that comes through our doors, and we never place a time limit on any animal awaiting adoption.
We also deliver a range of successful mental health-focused community programs, creating a lifeline to both the animals we care for and those in the community who need it most.
