About this organisation

Red Collar Rescue Inc. was established in 2009 and became a registered organisation in late 2010 with the primary aim of providing temporary refuge and eventually new homes for abandoned, abused, unwanted and death row dogs. We are an independent, non-profit, non-government funded, organisation run primarily by Sharyn and Russell Banks.


All dogs coming to Red Collar Rescue are Vet checked, vaccinated, wormed and desexed prior to being made available for sale to the public. Prices range from $200 upwards for dog adoption. The Refuge is managed by an unpaid, elected committee, with all funds coming from fundraising and donations. The Refuge operates from a 160 acre property at Woowoonga, near Biggenden.

Since 2009/10 we have been able to re-home over 3200 dogs that would have otherwise been euthanised. As we live onsite, we are available 7 days a week by appointment, 365 days a year to talk to prospective adopters and welcome visitors. We endeavour to spend as much time as possible with our dogs, this allows us to get a better idea of their nature and how they interact with other animals and each other.

Our aim is to find the right home for the right dog. We can be found at 476 Woowoonga Hall Road, Woowoonga, just off the Isis Highway between Childers and Biggenden.
