Charities - Box Hill, VIC
Founded in 2011, Homeless Hounds is an Australia-wide network of volunteer foster-carers working to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals into loving forever homes.
Homeless Hounds Animal Rescue exists to ensure the welfare and wellbeing of all animals in need of care. We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome at-risk companion animals, and seek to support and promote responsible pet ownership and animal welfare.
Whilst cats, dogs and other companion animals are seen by most as our best friends, there are many animals who unfortunately end up in situations where they are at-risk and without vital care. Stray and unwanted animals regularly end up in shelters or pounds where they can develop behavioural problems and their core physical and emotional needs are not met.
We also recognise that there are times when a responsible pet owner may be temporarily or permanently unable to provide appropriate care for their loved ones, such as periods of economic hardship, poor health or unsafe living situations.
Through our network of animal lovers and dedicated volunteers, we provide a home for animals that come into our care, while they receive any veterinary care or behavioural training they may require before we find them a forever home. We advocate for animal welfare and responsible pet ownership.
We are a volunteer-based not-for-profit organisation registered as a Charity with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission with DGR status.
