Adopt A Pet

You have decided that the time is right to adopt a pet but you are finding it difficult and time consuming trying to find the right pet for you. Well, you have come to the right place!

Pressplay Pets will save you time and frustration by working directly with rescue groups and animal shelters to find the perfect pet that fits your lifestyle.

Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world.

The Pet Industry Association (PIAA) stated on January 31 2018 in their post – Australian Pet Ownership Statistics that “More than 62% of Australian households own a pet. Of these, 38% are dog owners and 29% are cat owners. In addition to this, 59% of people who do not currently own a pet admit that they would like to own one in the near future”. They also found “a higher proportion of us live in a house with a cat and/or a dog than with a child. The ratio of pets to the human population in Australia is around 101:100, meaning there are more animal companions than homo-sapiens”.

These figures may come as quite a revelation to some, but for us proud Aussie fur-parents they do not surprise us one little bit! Owning a pet is one of life’s little blessings.

Unfortunately though, many people do not place enough consideration of what “breed” would be more suitable for their lifestyle and family. Their final decision, often based on “type” over “temperament” contributes to poor choice and/or behavioural issues as some of the reasons owners surrender their pet to a pound, shelter or rescue group.

These organisations can quickly become over-crowded and over-whelmed with the amount of animals they need to rescue. They need help!

Pressplay Pets is an Australian adoption consultation service passionate about reducing the amount of animals being surrendered. We believe that when people have a true understanding of what lifestyle they live and what they can honestly offer a pet this will have a significant impact on the reduction of animals surrendered.

Think of us as the “GO TO” for finding pets for passionate pet loving people.

The service we provide is case by case. We work with the adopter throughout the entire adoption process. From figuring out the perfect fit, to working across the rescue groups to find a match, meet and greets of family’s and pets to hand over. We also provide an adoption pack full of samples and brochures to help the new pet owner on their way to happy, healthy pet ownership.

We take the pain away from filling out application form after application form. We take the disappointment away from looking at dog after dog and not connecting with any of them. We stop you from jumping through hoop after hoop.  We know which hoops to jump through giving you a quicker and much happier outcome!

By guiding people to make better choices in the first instance when bringing a pet into their lives, is paramount to the greater success of changing these outcomes.
