The Petbarn Foundation
The Petbarn Foundation was established in 2012 with a mission to help pet-related charities and welfare organisations care for animals in need. Since then, the Foundation has raised over $20 million, providing hundreds of small and large charities across Australia with financial support. In the wake of the Australian Bushfire disaster in 2020, the Petbarn Foundation distributed over $1.4 million in funds, products and services for those directly affected by the fires including a $75,000 donation to Vets Beyond Borders and delivering over $100,000 of pet food to rural areas. Over 56,000 pets have found loving homes through Petbarn Adoption Centres across Australia.
In six years, the Foundation raised $3 million for Seeing Eye Dogs Australia, to provide training for 60 service dogs. Through the Foundation’s partnership with the RSPCA and other rescue organisations, more than 47,000 pets have been rehomed with 100% of adoption fees returned to the partners.
