We are dedicated
to the safety and
wellbeing of animals
in our care.

North Queensland Animal Rescue is a Cairns based registered charity and is run entirely by volunteers. We accept dogs in need
of re-homing through private surrender and from
council pounds throughout north Queensland.

All dogs in our care are placed in approved, loving
foster homes – we do not have a shelter facility.



Adopt, don’t shop – find your perfect companion here


Provide a safe and loving environment until they find their forever home


Join the team of wonderful volunteers supporting our work


We offer judgement free and discreet
re-homing services

Thank you for your support.


NQAR is a registered charity and only exists due to the generosity of the public.
