The Animal Rehoming Service (TARS)


Bessiebelle as a stray Bessiebelle's pampered new life

The Animal Rehoming Service (TARS) is a Melbourne based, not-for-profit service that finds permanent new homes for unwanted pets; from tropical goldfish to champion horses, but the vast majority are dogs and cats. To date, over 800 animals have been successfully rehomed through the service.

It operates by putting owners who have to relinquish their pets, in touch with people wanting to adopt them, thus saving pets from the harrowing and sometimes fatal experience of being sent to pounds.

Foster people care for those animals who find themselves truly homeless. New foster carers are always needed, as many adopt the dogs and cats they've taken in!

For more information on adopting or fostering a pet, please contact Michaela on 0409 213 131.

If you would like to help The Animal Rehoming Service to care for and find great homes for the many unwanted animals that pass through the service, you can nominate them when you apply for your FREE Community Benefits Card at any Ritchies Supermarket.
