Welcome to Native Animal Rescue (NAR)

Native Animal Rescue is dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of sick, injured, orphaned and displaced native animals. We will take in any wildlife that are considered native to Western Australia according to the Department of Parks and Wildlife. We will also care for any lost pets (wildlife) and do our best to reunite them with their owners.

At Native Animal Rescue, we do everything we can to ensure that wildlife are able to be released back into the wild. We work in collaboration with our partner vets to provide a service to the Northern Suburbs of Perth, Port Hedland, and Broome.

Native Animal Rescue cares for over 3,000 native animals each year, and we have over 200 volunteers all over Western Australia. As Western Australia grows, we are experiencing an increased need for supplies, monetary donations, and volunteers every year. If you are interested in the care and rehabilitation of native Western Australian wildlife, we’d love to have your help.

Short history

Native Animal Rescue is a not-for-profit, non-government incorporated body licensed under the name Fauna Rehabilitation Foundation. The Fauna Rehabilitation Foundation was founded in 1982 and has its headquarters based on a 15 hectare natural bush site in Malaga, Western Australia. Over the years we have grown and expanded to Port Hedland and Broome, and are involved with leading-edge conservation programs state-wide. We are continuously collaborating with councils, governmental departments, and universities to develop and maintain game-changing rehabilitation strategies.
