Looking to adopt a small furry companion?
Sadly, there is never a lack of furry friends at Little PAWS Rescue waiting to go to their furever home. Our rescue currently takes in and rehomes Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, and Rats. We receive a variety of ages, breeds, sizes, colours, and temperaments of animals, all making their way into our rescue for various reasons.
We offer a 30day trial period for our animals with their new families, this allows time for the animal to settle into a new environment, and then for you to determine if they are a good fit in with your family and lifestyle. Due to various reasons, we are a pro-indoor rescue. Meaning our animals who get adopted get to live amongst their family, out of the weather, and more protected from the viruses we cannot vaccinate against.
Before taking an animal on trial there are some important details and requirements to go through regarding housing and individual animal cares. After you have had a chat with our adoption coordinator about which animal/s you may be interested in and are well suited to your home, we can book in a viewing time for you to meet your potential new family member. That’s when we will go through in more detail the care, health, and behaviours of the animal/s you are interested in and answer any questions you may have. We offer ongoing support during your trial to ensure the adoption is for the best for both you and the animal.
We provide free loan equipment during the trial period so you can see whether a furry friend is right for you without a financial commitment.

Prior to adoption all our rabbits are vet checked, microchipped, sterilised, up to date with vaccinations, and given a thorough health check.
Guinea Pigs are microchipped and males are sterilised. Male rats are sterilised.
Please note, some of these animals come from poor circumstances and can be nervous in their new home. Please be patient while they learn to trust you, there is nothing more rewarding than watching a timid animal open up and learn to love their new human.
