Detailed Information

North Queensland Animal Rescue (NQAR) is a Cairns-based registered charity dedicated to providing a safe and loving environment for dogs in need of re-homing. Operated entirely by volunteers, NQAR accepts dogs through private surrender and from council pounds across north Queensland. All dogs under their care are placed in approved foster homes, as NQAR does not have a shelter facility. Their mission is clear: adopt, don’t shop, and find your perfect companion here.

At NQAR, the focus is on transitioning dogs to their forever homes while serving as a valuable community resource and advocating for responsible dog ownership. The organization prides itself on offering judgment-free and discreet re-homing services, ensuring that each dog receives the care and attention they deserve. NQAR operates with compassion, kindness, and respect in all interactions, prioritizing the safety and well-being of the animals in their care.

Supporting NQAR means supporting a community where all animals have a loving home and are valued, respected, and cared for. The charity relies on the generosity of the public to continue its vital work. Whether through one-off or regular tax-deductible donations, every contribution helps NQAR fulfill its mission of finding loving homes for dogs in need. Join the team of dedicated volunteers at NQAR and be a part of making a difference in the lives of these deserving animals.
