When you Opt-2-Adopt an animal from our Animal Refuge you are supporting a not-for-profit organisation that dedicates its time and effort into re-homing those animals that have been surrendered, abandoned, mistreated, or lost.

When you opt-2-adopt you are saving 2 animals – you’re giving a home to one and opening up a place at our refuge to save another.

Foster Information

Fostering is a great way to provide help and assistance to Maryborough District Animal Refuge and animals in need.

Can you provide:

  • suitable transportation equipment (cat carrier, lead for dogs);
  • a comfortable and safe living environment for the animal;
  • adequate containment (fencing) for the animal with protection from the elements.

In addition you will need bowls and bedding for your foster animal.  Maryborough District Animal Refuge will provide high quality premium food for your foster animal.  It is a big responsibility deciding to be a foster carer but a rewarding one.  You will need to be patient and affectionate as you will be caring for their emotional and mental wellbeing as well as their physical needs.  A driver’s licence is necessary to get to and from possible vet appointments and to and from the refuge on an as needs basis.
