Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge

Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge (12)
The Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge (Sippy Creek Animal Refuge Society Inc) was established in 1979 with the primary aim of providing temporary refuge and eventually new homes for abandoned, abused, stray and unwanted cats and dogs.

The Refuge is an independent, non-profit, non-government funded, charitable organisation run primarily by volunteers.

The Refuge has a strict non-euthanasia policy.

All cats and dogs coming to the Refuge are Vet checked, vaccinated, wormed, desexed and micro chipped prior to being made available for sale to the public.

Prices range from $125 for cats, $140 for kittens and $170 for dogs.

The Refuge is managed by an unpaid, elected committee, and mainly run by a dedicated group of volunteers.

The Refuge operates from a 1.5 hectare site at Sippy Creek Road, Tanawha (adjacent to the Council Pound) and can house approximately 70 dogs and 50 cats at any given time.

In 2007 we rehomed approximately 400 cats and 750 dogs.

We rely heavily on the support of local businesses, clubs, councils and the community in general, for which we are very thankful and could not survive without.

We operate 12 collection points located at Shopping Centres throughout the Sunshine Coast for donations of food and other essentials for the Refuge.

Our website displays cats and dogs available for sale and is updated several times per week.

Volunteers are always welcome (Minimum age 18 years) with a range of activities from working with the cats and dogs, to lawn mowing, gardening, general upkeep and maintenance, washing etc.

Tuesday & Wednesday from 9.00am to 12.00pm
Thursday & Friday from 9.00am to 3.00pm
Saturday from 9.00am to 1.00pm.
