    The Petbarn Foundation is dedicated to rehabilitating abandoned, abused, injured or displaced animals and pets back into their natural environments and/or habitats.

  • Relief

    The Foundation will support activities which bring relief to pets, animals and the people who love and care for them.

Pet Care Packages COVID-19

Animal rescues and shelters are anticipating that changes to people’s financial circumstances as the impact of COVID-19 unfolds will lead to an increase in the number of pets surrendered at rescue centres and shelters. Pet-rescue groups provide care, food and shelter for animals when no one else can but are often charity run organisations relying on donations and volunteers to help continue their work. Immediate assistance from The Petbarn Foundation and ARC will provide Pet Care Relief Packages to pet rescue groups to enable them to continue caring for animals across Australia.

The Pet Care Relief Assistance Package will include:

  • 1.7 Million dog and cat meals
  • 5000 Flea, tick and worming treatments
  • 5 x Tonnes of cat litter
  • 500 kilos of chicken feed

Fundraising Initiatives

  • The Petbarn Foundation encourages Australians to open their hearts to a pet in need of a forever home. In partnership with the RSPCA, more than 140 Petbarn stores nationally will hold a "Clear the Shelters" event, whereby prospective pet parents are able to meet a number of lovable pets in need of a new home.

    The aim of the event is to find forever homes for a number of pets that have previously been displaced for a variety of reasons. All pets have been assessed for re-homing suitability and vet checked. Importanlty, the Petbarn Foundation aims to find long-term solutions for these beautiful animals across Australia.

    Having a pet as part of your family is a wonderful experience and the Petbarn Foundation is delighted to play a role in not only helping pets in need find new homes but in this process enrich the lives of people as they welcome a new member of the family through adoption.

    Clear the Shelters

  • Petbarn Foundation raise funds for animal charities through the Tree of Hope to help assist animals their care over the busy Christmas period and year ahead. Petbarn customers have the opportunity to purchase $3, $5 or $10 to hang the decorations on the Petbarn Tree of Hope. All donations collected on behalf of Petbarn Foundation are distributed to the nominated animal rescue group that often rely on the generosity of the community to help fund the cost involved in rehabilitating pets and preparing them for a second chance at a happy and healthy life.

    Tree of Hope

  • At any one time over 2,000 Australians are estimated to require support from a Seeing Eye Dog. To help reduce this figure, the Petbarn Foundation and Seeing Eye Dogs Australia (SEDA) are urge Aussies to get behind Petbarn Foundation annual fundraising appeal to assist Australians who are blind or have low vision.

    "It takes a lot of time, love, patience and money to raise these special working dogs that will one day become the gift of independence for people who are blind or have low vision," said Leigh Garwood, General Manager from Seeing Eye Dogs Australia.

    "Last year’s successful fundraising campaign through the Petbarn Foundation has enabled us to train six dogs who are all doing well. We're once again calling on everyone's generosity to support this year's appeal," added Garwood.
