About this organisation

The Australian Animal Protection Society is a not for profit, self funded animal shelter dedicated to the wellbeing of all animals.

For over 30 years, our shelter has rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed thousands of animals and continue to do this today.

The Australian Animal Protection Society is a community based, not-for-profit registered charity that receives no government funding. We care for hundreds of abused, lost, injured, and abandoned animals every year. 

AAPS is operational 7 days a week and relies solely upon the generosity of volunteers and community support for both the running of the Shelter & the 4 OP Shops, which provide essential financial aid.
