About S.A.F.E. Rehoming
S.A.F.E. stands for 'Sydney's Animal For Everyone'. Here at S.A.F.E. Rehoming we believe there is an animal out there for every person or family, or more to the point, a person or family for every animal!! Just like families and homes, pets come in all shapes and sizes and it is extremely important to ensure the pet is matched to the correct home and visa versa. Not only does this ensure the animal will find its forever home but also that you and your new furry family member will build a strong bond and be happy with each other!

S.A.F.E. Rehoming Inc. was launched in September 2017 by the 'Save Our Shelter' campaign. The need for a new independent animal care facility became critical after the closure of the largest rehoming facility in July 2017. The concern caused by the closure prompted the community to start the 'Save Our Shelter' campaign to help protect the unwanted, homeless and stray animals in the area. There are currently almost no facilities in Northern Sydney which will take in pets from the public. There are very limited sources of education and advice on pet ownership and very few places which offer pets for rehoming.
The former staff and volunteers from the closed shelter, many of whom are now working tirelessly for S.A.F.E. Rehoming have some stories to share here.
