About this organisation

The Rainbow Paws Program believes all creatures deserve food, shelter, care and respect. We recognize the role companion animals play in the overall well-being of their guardians – particularly individuals and families doing it tough. Companion animals provide emotional support, stability, and unconditional love. We believe they deserve nothing less in return. The Rainbow Paws Program provides free pet food, bedding, supplies (such as leads, jackets, collars), subsidised boarding, subsidised desexing and subsidised vet care for the companion animals of a variety of people including:

• People experiencing or at risk of homelessness

• People who are isolated

• People who are financially disadvantaged

• Individuals with mental health or physical disabilities

•Women, men and youth in refuges or temporary housing
