S.A.F.E Animal Rehoming Charity

Attention all animal lovers!!!

Have you ever wanted to TRULY make a difference? And be a part of something BIG. Not just saving one life... but thousands!!??

Due to unforeseen construction issues our beloved animal rescue shelter, located on the northern beaches of Sydney, (formerly known as The Animal Welfare League NSW, Ingleside) was evacuated and shut down -permanently- in July 2017... leaving staff without jobs and companion animals without a home!

A group of ex staff and volunteers are now hoping to raise enough money to either buy or build a new rescue shelter on the northern beaches!
We have started up a bit for profit charity named: S.A.F.E rehoming!
(Sydneys animals for everyone)

Anyone who lives on the Northern Beaches area will already know that there are so few animal shelters in the area, and now with the biggest one in the entire region shut down, we truly fear for all the animals who will be left without a safe place of refuge and the families without a safe way to rehome.

All of our dearly loved animals were fortunately relocated to other shelters to find their forever homes. But all of the dedicated staff and volunteers want to continue helping the homeless animals of Northern Sydney!

Although our work will not be affiliated with AWL NSW anymore, they are a great source to see some of the belief systems we follow and what we will strive to be once again.

We had rehomed, on average over 1000 animals each year! And that was just from the Ingleside Shelter.

A shelter on the north shore needs to exist so that these animals have a chance of a bright future in a new home and so that families can rehome their little furry ones in a safe, ethical and loving way.

Needless to say, we will be more than happy to take on any corporate sponsors/donors who want to inject larger amounts of money than the GoFundMe!

We are hoping to raise enough money to either buy or build a new rescue shelter on the northern beaches!

Please dig deep and open up your heart to help us save thousands of little lives that need our assistance now.

We have a website:

As the kitten season begins the litters have already started rolling in!
We have too many animals needing help and not enough homes to place them in. This means we're now having to turn away enquiries :(
So please, if you have any space in your home and heart for a temporary foster cat and/or kittens please email us as soon as you can. We provide absolutely everything!

HELP! We have urgent surrender enquiries coming through our ears but no foster carers. If you have a spare room, bathroom or laundry and an open heart please let us know.

Hello precious supporters!

Not sure if we’ve mentioned our lead for taking over a boarding cattery in Roseville next year?? :D

The business seems very successful, with space for up to 30 boarding cats and the holiday periods are usually always booked out. We will be able to expand the boarding capacity and the best part is there is space for us have up to 20-30 welfare cats in the facility as well. We would operate as SAFE Rehoming and our primary focus would be rehoming the welfare cats with the boarding being the way to keep us above water financially.

We can't move forward.
We need a guarantor for the lease, being that we are not in a position to buy the business outright and currently have no personal assets.

Could you be a guarantor for us?

If this is something you would consider doing, please let us know and we can supply you with the boarding facility’s financial numbers as well as SAFE Rehoming’s business model.
Even if you’re not able, you may know someone who can :)

Many many thanks!
The S.A.F.E rehoming team.
