Over the past 29 years SADS has saved thousands
of dogs and cats — and from day 1 we've been
working towards change from a culture of killing
companion animals to a culture of saving them
SADS provides veterinary care for animals that are sick or injured — including palliative care for animals that still enjoy a good quality of life
SADS is an established leader of the no kill movement — and we successfully operate a Melbourne-based regional animal pound on a no kill basis, demonstrating that a no kill policy IS possible
In 2013 we saved 96.8% of dogs and 93.3% of cats. Many of these animals would not have been saved by other shelters.
