It makes me happy to see that they are all so passionate about animals. The most genuine and lovely people I have ever met. Thankyou so much for taking in my babies I will be forever grateful. As sad as it was as there was no other way for me to bring them with me overseas, knowing they are in a good home makes me so relieved.

We Adopted Merric & Dorrin & these brothers are a treasure to Love. They have filled my heart with so much joy, after my Bailey girl passed in June 2019. Silver Lining Pet Rescue were amazing. Merric & Dorrin came fully vetted & fully house trained. I am truly grateful to there Foster Carer Carol Silman & to Silver Lining for this Awesome opportunity to be able to adopt these Gorgeous Boys...

"I began animal foster care in December 2012 when Silver Lining Pet Rescue was literally being set up. I immediately jumped at the chance to work with this rescue only as I saw the vision Denise and April had and the amazing work that would come to so many in need as a result. I don’t know how they do it sometimes but I do know they do it well. At not one time have I ever had the need to question the running of this rescue as all within this rescue are transparent, open and work solely with the aim of putting the animals first. While the general public may not see as much I can guarantee I see this each day with how this rescue is run ethically. 
I have honestly lost count now of how many beautiful cats, dogs, kittens and puppies over the years I have had the pleasure of fostering, giving not only my home but love as though they were mine."

"I have adopted my fur baby that I was fostering. I feel it is the utmost importance in doing what we can for unwanted animals. Until Law comes in that All dogs and cats Must be desexed and only breeding can be applied for through a Permit system we NEED groups Such as SLPR . SLPR reaches Australia wide and not only helps people that no longer want their pets or can't have their pets due to medical or location reasons but they rescue animals on Death Row from refuges that have a kill policy. It is not the animals fault if they have been surrendered. Often due to poor training,people leaving or going on holidays. My experience with SLPR has been a positive one and I find that each of the people running SLPR has a deep and passionate love and empathy for the animals they try to help. Often overwhelmed by the influx of unwanted Animals they try to find and join up new carers,( including helping other rescue groups). This is a hard task surprisingly. I could not think of a better way then fostering, then with the option of adoption. I was impatient and wanted to adopt my big girl from day one, but I had to do a trial period of 3 weeks, after they came out and assessed myself and my property. I was extremely impressed that they did not allow me to adopt same day. This showed me they had ethics and standards and they stick to the guns putting the Animal first, very responsible. This helps stopping animals going into a knee jerk reaction or spontaneous adoption that later could result in the animal being back up for fostering/adoption. I have nothing but praise for these people and the wonderful fosterers and adopters. I can only hope MORE people will join the revolution of Fostering and adopting wiping out back yard breeders that do it for money or because they do not desex."
