Fraser Coast Dog Rescue

Welcome! Adopt your new best friend here! Click here for Dogs Available for Adoption!

Fraser Coast Dog Rescue is a group of volunteers dedicated to saving dogs from the local pounds due to be euthanased. We are a non profit group of individual people just wanting to improve and ensure the lives of dogs in our area.

Most of these dogs are “Death Row Dogs”. They have no more options. Their previous owners have not come to get them, or they have been abandoned or simply unclaimed dogs that no one wants. We are the last hope they have.

We are currently seeking foster carers to share their homes with these special dogs. We ask that our carers be forward thinking people who are able to share their love with the animal while still maintaining enough distance to let the dog go when their forever family comes to get them. This is a hard thing to do and it takes a special person to achieve it.

If you are interested in volunteering your home and your heart, please see our criteria here and then contact Annette to begin this most rewarding process.

As rescuers we save dogs and bring them into our homes, treating them as our own. We de-sex, microchip, vaccinate, worm and heartworm test all the dogs before we allow them to be adopted.

The dogs remain in our foster carers' homes until a suitable family wants to adopt them and be their 'forever families'.

We DO NOT adopt out any dog that has not been de-sexed.

These are very special dogs and our mission is to give them a second chance at life.

Please visit our Dogs Available For Adoption page and meet your new best friend. Also, browse the happy stories of other dogs that have had that second chance at life and been saved from Death Row in the Dogs That Have Been Adopted section.

As our funding comes strictly from the public and our volunteers, we greatly appreciate all donations. We all volunteer our time, love and homes to these special dogs.

None of the volunteers are paid and all donations go to cover the cost of the vet work for dogs that require extra medical treatment.
