Important Information regarding surrendering your cat or if you have found a stray
Kitten season has arrived, and we now have no space left in our cattery. This means we are unable to freely admit animals into the Shelter. Because of this, we ask those wishing to surrender their own pets to phone us first to ensure we have a pen available, or if there is no space, be added to our waiting list for when we do have room. It is also extremely beneficial if your pet is up to date with vaccinations as this will reduce its stay in Quarantine.
In relation to stray animals, we request finders call their local council to collect directly from them, as when we have no space in our quarantine pens, we will be calling Councils to collect them from us. It is far less stressful for the animals to go directly to another Shelter, rather than come to us and then be transported elsewhere.
One of our core values is to never to turn away an animal in need of our help. Please call the Shelter during business hours on 9798 8415 and our team will do all they can to assist.
Who we are
The Australian Animal Protection Society is extremely animal welfare focused and we recognise that the first step of responsible pet ownership is to desex. Thousands of animals are euthanised simply because there are too many of them & there aren’t enough responsible people to adopt them and make provisions for them during their entire lifetimes. We offer heavily discounted desexing in order to make your pet care as affordable as possible – click here to view our prices.
As a not for profit organisation, we receive no government funding. We rely heavily on the proceeds of our vet clinic & four opportunity shops, plus general donations & bequests to survive (we are tax deductible). We have numerous animals available for adoption, most of them surrendered for various reasons & we are known for giving second chances to those that may not have a chance at other shelters or rescue organisations. We love the animals in our care like we love our very own animals & between all of us – our devoted volunteers, our dedicated staff (who also volunteer their time out of sheer love for the animals,) our members (you can become a member too!) & committee of management (all volunteers) our animals are treated as individuals, with their own likes & dislikes & we rehome them accordingly, hopeful that they will be happy in their new homes. Not bad for a little shelter that has observed the changes in animal welfare for over 45 years!
Please visit our adoption pages & if someone catches your eye, give us a call on (03) 9798 8415 or (03) 9798 8044. All of our animals are desexed, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated & vet checked prior to leaving our premises. We also provide a 2 week health guarantee after adoption. If an adoption is, unfortunately, unsuccessful for some reason, we will gladly accept that animal back into our care. Our adoption fees are quite low so we make no profits on adoptions.

Microchip Update Reminder
Recently, there have been several cases where lost animals have been found, however owners are not able to be located due to incorrect or out of date microchip details. Microchips often play a vital part in reuniting pets, so remember every time you change phone numbers and/or addresses you need to up-date these details as obsolete details are the reason many animals end up unclaimed in pounds or shelters.
Owners can check microchip details at any vet clinic or shelter and contact information for the main microchip registries are listed below;
- National Pet Register 1300 734 738 www.petregister.com.au
- Central Animal Records 03 9706 3187 www.car.com.au
