South West Animal Rescue (SWAR) Inc. is a not for profit organisation based in Bunbury, the South West of Western Australia.
SWAR was established in November 2006 to address the lack of an animal shelter in the Bunbury Area. We are run entirely by a small, but dedicated group of volunteers & foster carers who take on the role of fostering animals in their homes while they are waiting for their “Forever Home”.
We do not receive any government funding and rely solely on the donations of generous businesses and community members.
Our primary goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abandoned domestic animals.
SWAR are strong advocates of responsible pet ownership through sterilising to prevent unwanted offspring. We also believe in potential dog & cat owners researching and choosing the correct breed of dog or cat to suit their lifestyle.
