We would greatly appreciate FRESH donations of endive, bok choy, choy sum, dutch carrot tops, parsley, broccoli, pak choy, wombak, chicory, radish tops, cos lettuce. Also we need oaten or grass hay and bags of oaten chalf. Anybody who wants to donate but lives too far away, please use Woolworths online and deliver to the AAPS at  https://www.homeshop.com.au/

Rivid Pets

You may have noticed a few professional photographs of some of our animals available for adoption
on our website. These stunning pictures have been taken by David Oakley, who kindly volunteers his time us once a week. David has his own website - please visit him at Rivid Pet Portraiture. He has an amazing affinity with the animals and the patience of a saint.

Featured dog



Cocasse was surrendered to us because his owners could no longer keep him & it’s not often that we would be thrilled with an animal being surrendered but in this case, it was definitely in Cocasse’s best interests. ........... He is now a much improved, very handsome boy who loves to play ball & he is just so smart & loyal with those he knows. He loves his walks & he would suit an active adult family or a family with older teens.....
