General Adoption Information - Animal Rights and Rescue
For the foreseeable future, ARRG is restricting access to follow social distancing requirements, until the Pandemic passes. Therefore any adoption of our cats or dogs can be attended by ONE ADULT ONLY!!! Adoptions are by appointment only, as all of our cats and most of our dogs are being fostered in private homes.
To expedite the adoption process, please email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) proof of homeownership (or if renting, a letter of agreement from your landlord owner) - and for dogs, photos of your fenced yard - prior to phoning ARRG (02) 6622 1881 (M-F 10-2 excl PH) for your pre-adoption interview. You can take the opportunity to include in your email why you will make the best guardian for this dog/s or cat/s.
New local council microchip registration policy:
When you adopt from Animal Rights & Rescue Group Inc (a clause 16(d) organisation) you are entitled to a discount when you register your pet with your local Council.
You will need to show your ARRG Interim Receipt as well as the sterilisation certificate as proof.
