About our cause

Our cause is companion animals. More animals share homes with people per capita in Australia than anywhere else in the world. Yet sadly, irresponsible breeding sees hundreds of thousands of healthy but unwanted cats, dogs and other animals put down each year in overcrowded animal shelters simply because there aren't enough good homes for them. Your support will help to raise public awareness about the companion animal overpopulation crisis, and lobby governments to enact laws to prevent future animal homelessness. Learn more. Watch a video

A personal message from Animals Australia:
Our target: $ 1,000
So far we've raised: $ 75

We're raising money to create a fairer world for companion animals. For many of us, the unconditional love of our family dog or cat is a great gift — something we couldn’t imagine living without. Yet, sadly, not all companion animals enjoy the comfort and care they deserve.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of healthy cats and dogs are euthanased at pounds and shelters... across Australia. Their only crime: that they could not find a loving home.

Animals Australia campaigns to address the causes of this tragic pet overpopulation, and to inform people about how they can help protect companion animals too. We work to expose and end cruel puppy farms — facilities that fuel the problem by churning out more and more animals in factory farm-like conditions.

Through our work, a growing number of caring people are choosing to save a life by adopting from a shelter, and are also recognising the importance of desexing their animals.

Thanks to our donors, Animals Australia supports National Desexing Month and is contributing to the Getting To Zero project (an important project working to end companion animal overpopulation). We also continue to push for laws to be changed, to provide even greater protection to dogs and cats.

We need your help to solve the problem of companion animal overpopulation once and for all, and to create an Australia where all dogs and cats experience the joy of a safe and loving home. Together we can make this a reality. Please donate today.
