Woolworths Pet Insurance & PetRescue Partnership

Woolworths Pet Insurance is proud to partner and support PetRescue, creating true social change and saving lives through pet adoption across Australia.

PetRescue is one of Australia’s most visited pet adoption platforms and is free for all Australians and pet rescue groups. In 16 years, over 650,000 pets have found loving new homes.

Donated funds directly help by:

  • Connecting thousands of rescue pets with potential adopters to help them find loving homes quicker through one of Australia’s largest free online pet adoption sites - On average between 70,000 - 80,000 pets are helped through PetRescue every year!
  • Over 1,000 rescue groups profile their rescue pets on the free online PetRescue platform and management tools, helping rescue pets find their forever home easier - By providing tech support, rescue groups can focus on what they do best - caring for, rehabilitating and adopting pets.
  • Enabling critical pet adoption assistance programs such as delivering essential quality food to rescue groups for pets in their care, and adoption assistance promotions for special needs pets who need extra support to find their loving home.

Plus, Woolworths Insurance has supported PetRescue through on-site adoption events, and supporting PetRescue’s work in saving greyhounds from kill shelters, providing equal care to pets by ensuring that the previous vet history is not considered on the first claim.>

PetRescue is on a mission to redefine the future of pets using innovation, technology and partnerships to ensure pets are safe, respected and loved. Woolworths Pet Insurance is proud to support PetRescue on that mission, and so much more!

You can get involved or find out more on PetRescue’s innovative life saving initiatives and programs by visiting PetRescue.
