WA Pet Project (WAPP) is our first rescue we began working with.
WAPP a not for profit and incorporated group based in Perth, Western Australia. Their Committee is experienced working in animal rescue and they are proud supporters of the No-Kill movement. Offering pet re-homing and an adoption program for cats and dogs, their vision is a world where animal rescues don’t need to exist. They love their foster pets, but what they love more is pets living in their homes. Forever.
WAPP's aim is to help the community become great pet owners through various education programs, online resources and dog training courses. Because they believe success will come from addressing the cause, not only the issue.
Edith from WAPP says 'Donations allow our carers to focus on what they're there to do, caring. Being able to supply our carers with pet goods takes stress of our wonderful team and of course keeps our pets healthy and adoption ready. They simply mean it's not costing us even more to do what we do. Most carers pay for their own food too, so it's a financial thing too when they already do so much'.
Their have 5 key areas of focus in achieving their goals:
1. Education on responsible pet ownership
2. Provide simple and clear learning materials
3. Engage with the wider community to spread our message
4. Rehoming of pets
5. Dog training courses
