What We Do

Adoption

We'll help you find the perfect new addition to your family. Be you after a bouncy new puppy, a quiet lap cat, or a dog for a running companion, we can help you find your furry soul mate

Re-homing Services

Though we hate to see it happen, we understand that circumstances change and you may no longer be able to care for your pet. If you're struggling to pay the bills, if you've had to move into assisted housing, if your newborn is allergic to your pet, or any other issues--please contact us so we can help you find a new home for your beloved pet

Fostering

Animals that are in need of a new home usually don't have anywhere to live while they wait for their future families to come along, and that's where we come in. Our tireless volunteers open up their homes, hearts, and pockets to care for these animals while they wait for their time to be adopted.

Our Staff

Angela Atkinson

Founder and Manager

Angela founded TFRA in August of 2011 after realizing the animal rescue network in Northern Queensland was still struggling under the weight of homeless and unwanted animals. She now spends every day working tirelessly to keep TFRA running smoothly and ensuring every animal that comes through her front door gets the best chance at life possible.

What our clients say

Have just adopted the beautiful Koda today and she has settled in beautifully and certainly made herself at home! She has been playing non stop with our other puppy fletcher and they just love each other! So grateful for all the hard work you all do! Koda was given a second chance and without your¬†organization she wouldn’t have gotten that and we wouldn’t have her! Thank you so much

Just wanted to say thanks to Townsville Foster and Rehoming, with special thanks to carer Mel, for our gorgeous kitten Minnie. She came to us a week ago and she has quickly become part of the family. Our lovely boy Higgy, also a rehomed cat, has adapted really well to Minnie and the two are on the way to becoming good friends. Minnie has a great nature and is a sheer delight. Thanks to all concerned. Liz Tynan
