Welcome to 4 Paws Animal Rescue Inc.

4 Paws Animal Rescue Inc. provides refuge for homeless dogs and cats on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and beyond.


We are a non profit organisation run entirely by volunteers. We rely on donations from members of the public and local businesses.

Many of our animals come from Council pounds.Others have been surrendered or abandoned due to lifestyle changes of their owner. Some have been rescued from cruel living conditions where they have been abused or neglected.

Our animals are cared for in the homes of our wonderful Foster Carers until they can responsibly rehomed to a Forever Family. 


All 4 Paws animals are vet checked, micro-chipped, wormed, flea treated, de-sexed and Council registered prior to being
available for adoption.

4 Paws also has a number of special care pets that will remain with us as 4 Paws Permanent Residents rather than being available for adoption. These elderly or special needs pets deserve the very best and we have made a promise to them to keep them safe.
4 Paws Permanent Residents require sponsorship from local businesses or individuals to help us provide the very best care for them. We also need permanent carer to take these special pets into their home, click here to see the pets in need of care.

As well as re-homing our animals, we also believe that education is the key to reducing the number of unwanted companion animals. To this end, we strive to teach members of the public about responsible pet ownership by holding community events.
