As you know by now, here at Jetpets we are passionate about rescue pets. That’s why we were excited to hear from Anne at the RSPCA NSW about some recent rescue success stories!
Tinkerbelle (now named Belle and pictured far right) and Sandy (now named Essie and pictured right) were transported from Sydney to “Rescued With Love” in Melbourne in April. Kae from Rescued with Love kindly offered to take on these two girls which they affectionately named the “Button Sisters” as they were cute as buttons!
Both girls had severe skin infections due to neglect and were in need of some TLC and time to recover before they could be desexed and eventually rehomed. Kae has been taking wonderful care of these 2 girls and their progress can be seen on the Rescued With Love Facebook page.
DeDe (pictured right) was originally at the RSPCA’s Shoalhaven Shelter where she was fostered with her brothers and sisters. A few of the litter were actually deaf so finding the perfect home was a little trickier than usual.
DeDe was spotted on the ‘adoptapet’ website by Pam who lives in Melbourne. Pam had been searching for the right dog for awhile and finally found DeDe. She contacted the RSPCA Shoalhaven Shelter and had a long discussion with the manager to figure out if she was the right person for DeDe. Of course she was the perfect mum and we arranged DeDe’s flight down to Melbourne to her forever home!
We are very excited to again be participating in the RSPCA Million Paws Walk this year!
The Million Paws Walk is a fun day for all animal lovers. Money raised through entry fees, the sale of merchandise and online fundraising will help to fund the RSPCA’s critical work in the community, including the care of more than 28,000 animals entering shelters each year.
Taking part in the Million Paws Walk is a great way to help animals in need. All animal lovers are encouraged to brush off their walking shoes, pull out their pet’s leash and bring along their ‘best friend’ to Australia’s favourite pet event.

Jetpets is proud of the partnership that we have with the RSPCA Australia-wide. The RSPCA does amazing work with rescue groups all over Australia each and every day.
In February, we were so happy to help the RSPCA NSW with the transport of Izzy the Shar Pei.
Izzy, who had Entropion (a medical condition in which the eyelid folds inward,) travelled down to Melbourne to be relocated to Shar Pei Rescue.
Entropion is is very uncomfortable and irritating for the animal. Thankfully, Izzy had Entropion surgery and was lucky enough to find a new ‘furever’ home within two weeks of arriving in Melbourne – a great result!
Thanks to Anne from the RSPCA NSW for sending us this adorable pic of Izzy and we hope that she is settling into her new home nicely!

Once again, we had a fabulous time at this year’s Million Paws Walk. This year in Victoria alone, over $500,000 was raised to support animals in need.
