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 & 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. Today the Home opens its doors up to 3000 times each year to welcome animals into our care as we provide pound services to 8 council areas across Sydney. We have more than 230 dedicated volunteers, who assist with animal care, fundraising, events, admin, foster care and animal transport.
