We find loving homes for abandoned and stray pets

At any given moment, there are thousands of lovable pets in animal shelters across Australia waiting for a new home. Petbarn is passionate about sharing the joy of pet companionship so through the Petbarn Foundation, we partner with these shelters to make sure these pets are welcomed into families to receive the love and care they deserve.

The companion animals that you see in our adoption centres, including kittens, cats, puppies, dogs, rabbits, mice, rats or guinea pigs are not sold for profit. These are rescue pets which means that if you adopt a pet from a Petbarn Adoption Centre which are located in selected Petbarn stores, 100% of the adoption fee is returned to our adoption partners.

We have helped re-home thousands of rescue pets on behalf of our adoption partners.

Australia is a nation of pet lovers with more than two thirds of households owning a pet. Sadly, those homes aren’t always forever with hundreds of thousands of unwanted pets being surrendered to animals shelters every year. Petbarn are actively involved in raising awareness for pet adoption. Since opening our first Petbarn Adoption Centre in 2012, we have helped re-homed thousands of rescue dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and rabbits on behalf of our partner animal shelters whom we partner with closely.

Our Adoption Partners

The adoption process

  • 1

    Assess pets for adoption

    Our adoption partner assess the pet’s suitability for rehoming. All adoption pets have undergone a comprehensive vet check and been de-sexed. In all cases dogs and cats are micro chipped, treated for internal and external parasites (such as worms and fleas), and had their initial vaccination and dogs are also treated for heartworm.

    Petbarn Adoption Centres

    Our partners bring their shelter animals to Petbarn where they will stay in purposely built and installed enclosures while waiting to be rehomed. All Petbarn enclosures are built at our cost and have designed in collaboration with the RSPCA to ensure the well being and safety of the pet during their short stay with us.

    Quality Care

    Dedicated Petbarn staff personally care for all adoption pets. While being cared for in Petbarn Adoption Centres, staff see to all the pets needs including feeding and checking the health and wellbeing throughout the day. Dedicated staff from the adoption partner also ensure the pet is cared for during their stay.

    The Perfect Match

    When a prospective pet parent shows interest in adopting one our adoption pets, a Petbarn team member will spend time explaining the adoption process and ensuring there is a good connection and responsible intention between them and the pet. In the best interest of the pet, no pet is adopted until a thorough interview is conducted with the potential pet parent in line with our adoption partner procedures.

    Adoption Fees

    The fee of adopting a pet will vary and is set by our adoption partners which is paid by anyone adopting a pet. The adoption fee is collected by Petbarn and passed directly onto the adoption partner. 100% of the adoption fees are returned to the adoption partner. Petbarn does not profit from adoption fees. Petbarn is proud to provide food, housing and dedicated staff to caring for the adoption animals while in staying in Petbarn Adoption Centres.

  • Natasha

    Domestic short hair

    10 Months old

    Lovable & cute

    My new Fiancé and I decided it was time to adopt a cat to call our own.

    We walked into Petbarn Nunawading and fell in love immediately with Natasha, the 10-month-old kitten.

    We went home and talked about it. Later that we week we found out that she had been there for a few months and no one wanted to adopt her.

    We got the news that she was ours and we were sooo excited. We went to the shops and bought everything possible for her.

    She now lives at home with me, my fiance, my mum and dad and brother. We have 1 other cat and dog.

    She fit in automatically and its only been 2 days!!

    We are so excited to watch her grow and to watch her personality come out.

    Thank you so much Petbarn for your quick response from Cat Corner of the adoption and for all your lovely help in getting her the correct food and information.

    We're so happy with our new kitten 'Tiny' she's so friendly, purrs constantly so has adjusted really well, kids love her. The process from pet rescue was really easy, were very happy & glad to save a life!

  • Mary

    Domestic Short Hair

    Less than a year old

    Cuddly and adventurous

    I adopted Mary the kitten at the beginning of July and she has been a wonderful addition to my household!

    She's very adventurous (chasing shadows around on the floor) and loves cuddling up on my lap whenever I'm relaxing! My new best friend is beautiful!

  • Frosty Fruit

    Domestic Short Hair

    Kitten Orange, sweet and refreshing

    We adopted our lovely boy Frosty Fruit from Petbarn Northmead. Strange name for a cat but it does suit him – he’s orange, sweet and refreshing! He is a very affectionate cat who loves nothing better than trying to snuggle on the kitchen bench while food is being prepared – he does love his food!

    We had some early struggles with our other 2 male cats but they are all putting up with each other now – while not the best of mates there’s no fur flying.

    We are so pleased that we met Frosty when we did and are thrilled that he is a part of our little feline family.

  • Magpie

    Domestic Short Hair

    Kitten Full of love

    I wasn't planning on getting another cat as I left my one to my mum to keep her company as she was lonely. But I walked into Nunawading Petbarn about two weeks ago and absolutely fell in love with a cat up for adoption by the name of "Magpie".

    Straight away I could tell that he was so full of love and needed copious amounts of attention. I refused to leave the cage he was in, I physically couldn't I was so In love so I decided to adopt him. He now goes by the name of Rufus and he is such a beautiful cat, he adores everyone and makes sure they know it too.

  • Minnie

    Domestic Short Hair

    Kitten Beautiful nature, loves cuddle

    I called in at Petbarn Campbelltown as I was near there and needed food and treats for my cat and dog.

    I saw Marmalade in her cage and she was the image of my cat Lucy when she was a kitten. I was tempted to take her there and then. But decided to go home and talk to my husband and think about it overnight. I thought I will go back tomorrow afternoon and if she is still there it's meant to be. So I went back and there she was on her own so I adopted her.

    We have named her Minnie as she is Lucy's Minnie Me. She has settled in well and has a lovely nature and loves cuddles.
