Adopt One and Save Two Lives!?

Currently we have some beautiful felines and canines in our care, waiting to be adopted!

By adopting an animal in need, you don’t only save one but two lives in one go! You get to keep your best friend forever, and open room at a foster carer’s home for another one!

Please visit our adoption page to view the animals that are available for adoption.



GAR is a not for profit organisation that heavily relies on donations. We don’t have any paid workers, everyone is a volunteer! Every cent raised goes towards saving animals in need!

You can now donate using these simple steps:
– send an SMS that says GAR to 0437371371
– receive a reply with a link
– fill in your details and donate

Thank you for supporting GAR!

Bruno, the loveable, gentle greyhound. This sweet natured gentleman, is a professional couch potato. He loves to sleep all day, cosy in his winter jacket.

Unfortunately at only four years young, Bruno is losing his sight. Because of this, we think Bruno would be best suited to a mature couple with very little expectation of long walks, or outdoor activities. Bruno loves people and other large dogs, does a great job of welcoming you home, but also doesn’t mind his own company. He is often frightened by loud noises and unfamiliar territory, and would love to always have company, be it another dog or humans. Bruno would also prefer a consistent environment with very little change, to help him memorise the position of furniture and doors etc. This gentle giant will offer you love and friendship, all wrapped up in a soft, fluffy package.

Bruno is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and up to date with flea and worm treatments.

M/chip# 956000008721150
