SAFE (Saving Animals from Euthanasia) Broome rehomes dogs, cats, puppies and kittens that have been rescued from the Shire Pound. All our animals go to foster carers homes as we do not have a shelter here. In their temporary home they are loved, trained and get to socialise with the foster carer's dogs, cats and/or children.

All the Shire Rangers in Broome volunteer their time in caring for and saving these guys as they are too beautiful to euthanise. All the people who work for SAFE, as well as the carers, volunteer their time for the love of animals.

Most of our pets are rehomed to Perth, some locally and some interstate. As we have a great deal with freight, it is cheaper to adopt a pet from SAFE that has been vaccinated, vet checked, wormed and desexed (from six months of age) than to buy a puppy from a pet shop.

Most of our older pets have had training with their previous owners. Unfortunately, around Christmas a lot of animals are dumped, which means we need to find carers and adoptive homes urgently. Although Broome is a paradise for humans, it's not so for our furry friends.

Most of our pets are cross-breeds; we even have a particular breed known as the "Broome Special" or "Broomese Terrier"!! If you are interested in adopting or becoming a carer, please contact us and don't forget to check out our animal listings on the website.

We may mainly deal with cats and dogs, but we have successfully rehomed guinea pigs, a goat, and get calls to take on chooks, assorted birds, and mice! So it seems kids and partners may be the only things we won't rehome.
