Join Us

Promote evidence-based solutions to save the lives of pets and people. Support research into effective strategies to decrease the number of treatable and adoptable dogs and cats euthanased in Australia.

Share that knowledge with communities, governments, welfare agencies, veterinarians, universities, and professional organizations to advocate for policy and legislative change and save lives.

Because We Care

  • 100,000 treatable and adoptable dogs & cats are killed every year in Australia
  • Some pounds kill 50% of dogs and 80-95% of cats
  • The Australian Pet Welfare Foundation is committed to decreasing the killing of pets in pounds and shelters throughout Australia.
  • Knowledge gained through research supported by the Foundation can transform the way shelters and pounds manage and rehome abandoned and lost animals.
