At Local Pets, our mission is to match loving animals with willing owners, to provide those owners with all the help they will need with caring for their pets and also to educate potential pet owners on the duties and responsibilities that go into the lifelong partnership they will be entering into with their new pets. We are dedicated to not only saving pets by finding them new homes but also to making sure that they receive the love, care and dedication they deserve.
Pets are like family to most of us and they need much more than simply caring for and feeding them. Pet ownership is a huge responsibility and should never be entered into lightly. It is a lifelong commitment, one that goes far beyond just picking out a cute puppy or kitten. With that in mind, our mission at Local Pets is to educate everyone we meet through this website on everything they need to know about responsible pet ownership.
Every year, hundreds of pets in Australia wind up on their own, desperately seeking food, shelter and love. Why this happens is often unknown, but for many of them, it is a situation that not all of them will survive. For the lucky few, they will find kind souls willing to give them the chance by opening their hearts and doors to them as strays, or they will be delivered to local shelter. Unfortunately, it is a sad fact today that many shelters are already overcrowded and can no longer house lost animals for as long as they would want to. With your help, we can keep pets like these from being lost from this world, simply because there is no room for them.
If you love animals as much as we do, we invite you to tour our site. At Local Pets, we hope you will find your next companion and all the help, knowledge and assistance that we can make possible to give you and your new friend the best start on your new journey together.
