Safe Tails

Safe Tails Program

Help us provide a temporary home for the pets of those in need

Happy Tails Animal Rescue Inc. has proudly created a community program called Safe Tails; to provide temporary and emergency housing for animals of individuals at risk or experiencing domestic violence, homelessness or other needs in Queensland. Often families are forced to surrender their pets or stay in unsafe environments due to lack of support options for their animals. We want to support families to seek safety by looking after their fur family while they look after themselves.

Referrals accepted via community support agencies. Are you a community agency supporting a client who could use our help? Please email us or click here to complete a referral form.

Partnership with DV Connect

Help us provide a safe refuge for the pets of those fleeing from domestic violence…

According to a recent Australian study, 50% of women who were victim to domestic violence reported that their violent partner had hurt or killed one of their pets. The study also revealed that as many as 33% had delayed leaving their violent relationship out of fear for their pet’s safety.
