We thank Andrew, Tim and the rest of the team and look forward to a long and happy relationship.

JRZ Homes - Helping create the next step for RCR, a new shelter on its own land

Jessie and the team at JRZ Homes are working with us with the planning, earthworks, concreting, etc for the new shelter. They have done food drives at Christmas and have raised funds for fuel and vetwork. Please support the great businesses that support your community.

JRZ Homes working alongside some of Bundaberg’s Best Lenders(that’s right-LOCAL Lenders) have come together to be able to allow First Home Owners the opportunity of using the $20000 First Home Owners Grant(FHOG) towards the deposit of their new home. The FHOG is paid to the owner when the slab stage is invoiced which unfortunately means most lenders won’t let you use the FHOG as a deposit. $20000 can go a long way to form your deposit! Talk to JRZ Homes today learn more about how we can get you into a Brand New JRZ Home sooner!

Isis Veterinary Services

Jason at Woodgate has provided us with some much needed care for our rescue dogs. We are proud to be associated with Jason and his highly dedicated team.   www.mvol.com.au/isisvet.aspx



Good Quality Dry Food

As always, we have some empty bellies to fill and appreciate any and all donations of quality dry food.


Concrete, reo bar and labour

Being able to concrete more floors of our pens will make the dogs much more comfortable when we have wet weather.


A portable building to use as an office

We desperately need a portable building to use as an office, as the rescue’s efforts and capacity has grown, so has the administration and need for room.

Red Collar Rescue is Committed to Educating the Public about De-sexing

Download our flyer, print and distribute in whatever capacity you can. Local shopping centres, community meeting places, and public notice boards. Each year in Queensland (and all over Australia) thousands of healthy, family friendly dogs are euthanased in animal shelters and veterinary clinics because they are either unwanted, pregnant or their puppies can’t be re-homed. Don’t let your dog or his/her puppies become another statistic and contribute to the sad loss of life that results from pet over breeding.
