QUICK EXIT

You can help by fundraising for Pets In Crisis


We strongly believe that no pets should be at risk of being abused and no one should feel that they can’t leave a violent home!

Pets are part of our families so the the thought of leaving them behind in an emergency is unthinkable! When someone is faced with the decision of leaving a domestic and family violence situation and they have pets, the logistics of leaving can be even more frightening. They need to think of where their pet will go once they leave. Can they stay with a friend? Does their abuser know where that friend lives? The majority of womens shelters/refuges do not allow pets. If they leave the pet with the abuser, what will happen? Will it increase the risk that their pets will (if they are not already affected) become the victims of the violence? 

If there are no safe options for their pet, our Pets In Crisis program helps. But we need your help to continue providing the service.

There are lots of ways you can help the pets of Queenslanders who have escaped domestic and family violence. Below are just some ideas to start you thinking.

Cutest Pet Photo Competition
  • Invite your animal loving colleagues to enter a photo of their pet into the competition.
  • Then, invite all your workmates to attend the Photo Competition, perhaps in the Tea Room, where all photos are laid out on a table, and have a jar/glass next to them.
  • Ask your workmates to place a donation into the jar next to the photo they think is the cutest.
  • The jar with the most donations, is declared the Cutest Pet.
  • Don’t forget to let us know you’re fundraising by emailing
Pet-Owner Look-A-Like Competition
  • Invite your animal loving colleagues to enter a photo of them and their beloved pet into the competition.
  • Then, invite all your workmates to attend the Photo Competition, perhaps in the Tea Room, where all photos are laid out on a table, and have a jar/glass next to them.
  • Ask your workmates to place a donation into the jar next to the photo they think is the cutest.

Bake Sale

Thank you for your help, for everything you have done for me over the last few days. Your services are more than impressive and impeccable for anyone who may be in danger or in need of help of any kind. I may not be here today without your protection and the services you provided me. It is amazing to know there are people out there that give their absolute best to keep others safe, because they can and they care. Before making the call to you I felt too ashamed and far too proud to ask anyone for help. But now I feel strong knowing that I had the courage to put my hand up and ask for help. It saved my life!
