About this organisation

Melbourne Animal Rescue Incorporated (MAR) is a no kill community foster care network that was founded in July 2010. We became a registered charity in March of 2015. We have no central location (i.e. a shelter or head office), and we firmly believe in the foster care model.

Our primary purpose is to save the lives of animals who are unwanted OR facing euthanasia in shelters and pounds. We aim to also take in owner surrenders otherwise destined for the pound.

Our other aims are to; Educate the general public on responsible pet ownershipDiscourage animal cruelty and neglectPromote the outlawing of puppy and kitten farmsPromote backyard breeding to become heavily regulated and policed
