Sydney Fox and Dingo Rescue (SFDR) is a registered Australian charity and animal advocacy organisation. Since 2012 we have worked tirelessly to rescue, care for, desex and rehome a variety of animal species with a particular focus on foxes and dingoes as well as other animals considered either socially or legally to be 'pest' animals. Unfortunately, the welfare of so called 'pest' species (also called 'feral', 'non-indigenous' or 'invasive' species) in Australia, often falls through the cracks. We, as Australians, consistently fail to stand up and take responsibility for animals brought to Australia through no fault of their own, trying their best to survive. It is time, as a nation, that we move towards more compassionate conservation methods.
5 Key Points About Our Program:
- 1. All of our rescue animals are desexed, microchiped and vaccinated.
- 2. All our rescue foxes and dingoes are housed in secure outdoor enclosures with the appropriate government permits.
- 3. We are a registered charity and have rehomed over 400 animals since 2012 (including foxes, dingoes, cats and rabbits).
- 4. We believe compassionate, science based conservation means caring about both introduced and native species and we work hard to assist researchers, universities and wildlife organisations with fox samples and data.
- 5. We work with many native wildlife and animal welfare organisations including the Dingo for Biodiversity Project, the Centre for Compassionate Conservation, WIRES, the Animal Rescue Cooperative, Possumwood Sanctuary and Wildlife Hospital, RSPCA Vic, The Animal Welfare League, World League for the Protection of Animals, Monica's Doggie Rescue, and more as well as many council pounds and shelters.
We are a volunteer run, small, grassroots charity and so you can sleep soundly knowing 100% of your donation will go directly to supporting animals in need.
We are a non-kill rescue and provide permanent sanctuary to any and all animals that come into our care who are not suitable for rehoming or cannot be released.
We own a 100 acre bush sanctuary where we can provide a safe, secure home to our rescue animals, since moving our rescue centre here in 2018 we have worked on building bigger and better enclosures including 3 acre enclosures for our permanent resident dingoes (that's the size of a foot ball field!).
We run a variety of programs to assist animals who typically may not qualify for assistance, rescue or care from domestic or wildlife animal rescue services.
