About Us

Small Steps is a life saving initiative by Rescue Pets

We at Rescue Pets have created Small Steps because it appals us; it breaks our hearts to witness the unnecessary suffering and loss of countless innocent lives. 

The current system of shelters, intended to provide a safe haven for needy pets, is not only antiquated but woefully inefficient. As a result, we are witnessing an alarming number of pets being put down – lives that could have been saved with a more compassionate and forward-thinking approach. It is time for change. It is time to embrace a better way of rehoming needy pets: through online platforms that offer them a second chance at life and love.

Please don’t misunderstand us we love Shelters and the amazing people who work within them. Shelters are a very necessary part of our animal welfare systems here in Australia, however the world has grown, the need has grown and we can’t just ignore the thousands of pointless deaths every week.

But amidst this tragedy, there is hope. A much, much better way exists – a solution that can turn this bleak reality around. Online pet rehoming offers a lifeline for these animals, providing them with a genuine chance at finding their forever homes. By utilising the reach and convenience of the internet, we can bypass the limitations of physical shelters and increase the chances of a successful match between pet and adopter.

Online platforms open up a vast network of potential adopters who may not have considered visiting a shelter physically. With just a few clicks, pet profiles can be seen by countless individuals looking for a furry companion. This increased exposure significantly boosts the chances of finding the right home for each pet, increasing their chances of survival and happiness.

Rehoming pets online allows for comprehensive and personalised profiles, enabling potential adopters to gather vital information about a pet’s history, temperament, and specific needs. This transparency helps ensure that pets are matched with suitable families, reducing the risk of returns or failed adoptions. It also enables adopters to make an informed decision, creating a foundation for successful and fulfilling lifelong companionships.

The shelter environment, although necessary, can be overwhelming for pets, causing them undue stress and anxiety. By embracing online rehoming, we can minimise the time spent in cages and provide a more comfortable transition for these vulnerable animals. The home environment is far more conducive to helping pets flourish, allowing their true personalities to shine through and increasing the chances of a successful integration into a loving family.

Pets are not just animals; they become cherished family members, offering unwavering love and companionship. By embracing online pet rehoming, we acknowledge the importance of this bond and prioritise the welfare of these sentient beings. It’s time to shift our focus from temporary shelter stays to permanent, loving homes, where pets can thrive, grow, and give back immeasurable joy and happiness to their new families.

The time has come for change. We cannot afford to turn a blind eye to the unnecessary loss of precious lives due to an antiquated and inefficient system. Online pet rehoming offers us a chance to rewrite the narrative and save countless innocent souls. By expanding our reach, providing individualised profiles, reducing stress, and strengthening the human-animal bond, we can create a future where no pet is left behind. Let us embrace a better way, an innovative path that will lead us to a world where every pet has the opportunity to find a loving home and experience a life filled with care, compassion, and happiness.

Imagine a world where no pet is left behind, where we no longer have to witness the heartbreaking sight of animals being euthanised simply because there isn’t enough space or time in overcrowded shelters. It is within our power to make this vision a reality.

To those who may harbour concerns about the safety and legitimacy of online pet rehoming, rest assured that responsible platforms such as rescue Pets prioritise the welfare of the animals above all else.

The success stories of online pet rehoming are countless and heartwarming. Pets who were once on the brink of euthanasia have found their forever homes, bringing immeasurable joy and companionship to their adoptive families. Through online platforms, we can empower individuals to make a difference, allowing them to directly participate in the rescue and rehoming process.

It’s time to break free from the constraints of an outdated system and embrace the power of technology and human compassion. By advocating for and supporting online pet rehoming initiatives, we can save lives, alleviate the burden on shelters, and create a more humane society for both animals and humans alike.

So, let us unite in our determination to make a change. Spread the word about the benefits of online pet rehoming. Support and volunteer with organisations that are leading the way in this progressive movement. Donate to their cause, enabling them to expand their reach and make an even greater impact.

Remember, behind the statistics and numbers, there are individual lives at stake – innocent beings who deserve a chance at happiness and love. Together, we can revolutionise the way we rehome needy pets, providing them with the second chance they deserve. It’s time to embrace a better way, a way that will save lives and create a brighter future for our four-legged companions.
