Animal Rights and Rescue (ARRG) is a non-kill, foster-care group, we rescue and care for animals until they find their forever home. Our ‘foster carers’ and volunteers are all unpaid, monies donated to us, is used directly to help the animals.
We also support people in times of hardship such as domestic abuse, serious illness or homelessness by providing temporary shelter for their pets while they recover. ARRG assists local pounds when required and other agencies such as hospitals, refuges, and vets for re-homing of pets in times of crisis.
Since 1995 Animal Rights & Rescue have rescued and re-homed over 15,000 unwanted animals and have responded to neglect/cruelty cases when the RSCPA is not available and the police need help.

Northern Rivers Animal Services (NRAS) is a not-for-profit, volunteer organisation that aims to rescue and rehome abandoned cats and dogs. The NRAS was started in October 2001 to provide care for the abandoned, abused, lost and unwanted dogs and cats in our region.
We operate within the Northern Rivers regional area, relying on the generosity of foster carers and aim to eventually have our own kennel facilities. As well as rescuing dogs and cats from the council pound, we assist with the costs of desexing for people in genuine need of financial assistance to desex their pet and maintain op shops in River Street, Ballina and Bridge Street, Lismore.
Volunteers are always needed to foster animals (food and vet work provided) and to help out at the op shops. We only adopt our pets to be rehomed within approximately one hundred kilometres of Ballina.
All our animals are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and vet checked prior to being made available for adoption, while any necessary transportation arrangements are up to the new owners.

At Cat Protection Society of NSW, we are very grateful to Oz-Pet for generously providing their eco-friendly litter and litter trays for the kittens, both at our Adoption Centre and in our foster care program. As Oz-Pet litter is 100 per cent organic it is a product we can have confidence in providing to all our growing kittens. Many of the stray kittens who come to us are inexperienced when it comes to using litter trays but we have found they adjust quickly to Oz-Pet. There has been lots of positive feedback about Oz-Pet not only from our foster carers and staff but also from clients who regularly purchase Oz-Pet litter from our retail store.
Oz-Pet is a product that we can be proud to recommend to our adopters.
At Cat Protection Society of NSW, we are committed to improving the quality of life for cats everywhere by educating the community about socially and environmentally responsible cat care. The Good Neighbour Project includes a variety of resources including videos and factsheets to support cat owners in providing the best possible care for their cats as well as protecting local fauna and neighbourhood amenity.
