Monika's Rescue do an amazing job, all those poor dogs rescued from death row from shelters and pounds. I found that they were excellent in vetting people to ensure they have the right dog for the right family. We recently wanted to adopt a puppy , the one we really wanted was just not suitable for our age of children and that was made clear and the other little ...read more

Monkias Rescue Centre is a disgrace to humans and animals. For my whole life i have been surrounded by animals, birds, insects and wildlife and for the past month of my life i have been in tears. My family and I bought a Jack Russel Terrier X from Monikas Rescue Center and it was horrible. When we first organised to go see two dogs the day before we went to visit ...read more

Fostered a sweet Aussie Terrier named Finn who had been at the shelter for 4, yes FOUR years, after he was initially rescued from death row at Blacktown Pound. I had initially chosen a number of dogs and Monika's personal knowledge of each dog was shown as she said that this dog needed daily eye drops, or that one snaps-so are there children in my home; this ...read more

I had a wonderful day at Monika's Doggie Rescue on Wednesday. The staff there are absolutely devoted to the dogs. The dogs are loved and looked after wonderfully well and are so deserving of a loving home. The office is so busy and they cannot afford extra staff. Volunteers help out but the decision regarding adoption is handled by Monika who knows each ...read more

Firstly, I would like everybody to know that I am a single female with one dog, we both love all other animals, I have a huge secure yard in the suburbs, I don't have kids, I make a decent living and can provide a loving and caring life for any pet that choose to take in. However, I am very disappointed.... I am also worried about the dogs. I also had a similar negative ...read more

You do not need to worry about the dogs. They have been saved from the pound on their last 24 hours before being put down because people put them there. Firstly, would you want to see an ex death row doggie go through more turmoil by being rehomed to the wrong family ...read more

We had a similar experience to Callioe. We couldn't fault the care these dogs are getting or the fantastic work of this volunteer organisation in rescuing these dogs from the pound. We just found them difficult to deal with as the only person who seems to be able to respond to specific requests about dogs or 'match' families with them is Monika herself. This may have ...read more

We've been a dog owners for over 30 years and thought this time we would give a home to a rescued dog. We filled in an extensive form and were then asked to repeat most things on the form while on the phone. Our current dog can't travel in the car due to illness. It was suggested that despite her illness and that the car makes her uncomfortable, we put some towels ...read more

Do the world a favour and adopt your pooch from Monika's. Keep in mind this is a volunteer organisation. I was a little overawed the first time I arrived; a lot of barking and a lot of dogs - but I must say they are extremely well looked after in their temporary care. Given these were all "death row" dogs, I didn't have particularly high expectations, but theres so many ...read more

We had an extremely poor experience here as only one person is able to meet with potential dog adopters and they were apparently too busy to meet us. We were not allowed to meet any of the dogs or assess their compatibility with our family. We struggle to understand the methodology and have never been turned away from meeting potential members of our family ...read more

Unfortunately we had a very similar experience. There were indeed many wonderful volunteers looking after many dogs and doing wonderful work- except delegation of office tasks seems to be a real issue. there was one harassed and unhappy person manning the ...read more

I would just like to say that volunteers cannot bring out dogs to meet prospective adopters, as they do not know each dog. The volunteers are there just to help out that day-walk dogs that are brought out by kennel hands. The kennel hands know which dogs have not had a ...read more
