Help Us Help Them

We are a completely not-for-profit organisation. As such, we run on the generousity and good-will of the wonderful Canberra community. From individual donations to support from local businesses such as Petstock Belconnen, Canberra Pet Stylist and other organisations including ACT Rescue & Foster and Labrador Rescue, The Rainbow Paws Program is only able to do the work it does because of the wonderful support we receive from all of Canberra.

There are many ways you can help The Rainbow Paws Program. Please see the options below to determine what suits you best!

Donate Food & Goods

We are always in need of pet food and other pet products such as leads, collars, blankets, jackets and more. The majority of our clients own dogs and cats so any donations of (unopened) dry, tinned and sachets of cat & dog food are always greatly appreciated. We are more than happy to pick up any donations or alternatively donations can be dropped off at a number of locations throughout Canberra. Please contact us for locations.
