Hotel Bookings

What is it

The Hotel Bookings program provides subsidise boarding at local catteries and kennels for those four legged friends who urgently need a temporary home. It also provides in-home pet sitting when the circumstances permit. The Hotel Booking program provides short-term care for the companion animals of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, residing at a refuge or accessing medical care themselves

who can access it

The Hotel Bookings program is available to concession card holders. The applicant must also be the registered owner for the pet. All animals must be up to date with the vaccinations to access the program. If the pet(s) are not, help can be provided through our Code Rainbow program. To access the program, a referral from a social worker from a human service provider is also required. This program is subsidised only. All clients will be required to contribute a small proportion of any costs incurred. The client is responsible for arranging for their pet(s) to be dropped off and picked from the boarding facility.

how to apply

To apply for the program applicants can either use the online application form or email a copy of their concession card, referral from their social worker, current vaccinations certificates and proof of pet ownership (such as registration papers or microchip papers). Please note: applications will not be processed until all paperwork is received.
