A compassionate community of animal carers

Our Network

Companion Animal Network Australia represents the companion animal welfare work of our six member agencies.

Adoptions and fostering are the core of what we do. Our network has found homes for millions of animals that have been surrendered and neglected but we always have many more awaiting adoption.

Learn more about your state’s agency below, and find a furry friend who’s eager for a new companion.
