Millions of farmed animals such as cows, hens and goats are slaughtered every year in Australia’s agricultural industry. Farmed animals are among some of the most vulnerable creatures when it comes to their rights and wellbeing.  

Unlike companion animals such as dogs and cats, farmed animals are not protected under any animal cruelty laws and therefore not afforded the same rights. Many of them die painful, horrific and needless deaths at a very young age. This is because they are deemed to be a “waste” on some farms for various reasons. Male calves and goats cannot produce milk. Hens are gassed at 18 months because they are no longer commercially viable.  

‘Til The Cows Come Home is Australia’s leading online adoption agency for farmed animals. We save and rehome unwanted animals. The tireless work of our caring staff and volunteers has brought kindness, eased suffering and given a second chance to many farmed animals across the country.

There are many ways in which you, too, can support the work of ‘Til The Cows Come Home.


Running a sustainable and effective organisation that can fulfil its mission to rescue and rehabilitate unwanted animals, costs money. One-off or regular donations provide much-needed funds that save lives and help reduce the brutality of the farm industry.   

Regular monthly donations help ensure that more foster stations can be set up to save more lives and support our dedicated team of volunteers who are on the frontline every day to care for these animals. 


‘Til The Cows Come Home would not be possible without our wonderful volunteers.  The time and skills of volunteers are valuable to help further our work. There are many ways in which you can volunteer to help make a difference to our wonderful cause. If you are interested in volunteering, send us an email at with a bit about you, your skills and experience.  


Foster carers make an invaluable contribution towards helping ‘Til The Cows Come Home in its mission. They provide rescued animals with a safe, caring and nurturing environment while they await adoption.

Our strong network of foster carers is the reason behind our zero euthanasia rate. Foster stations allow animals to have as much time as needed to be matched to suitable adopters. If you are interested in foster caring, send us an email at today!

Make The Switch To More Sustainable, Cruelty-Free Brands

With growing awareness of the realities and practices of the animal farming industry, more and more people are starting to make the switch to sustainable and cruelty-free alternatives.  

Vegan foods offer a great alternative and a simple and easy way to switch to a cruelty-free lifestyle. Many brands and organisations are expanding their offerings to plant-based alternatives, even in the dairy industry. This gives a strong indication of the surging popularity of ethical and cruelty-free food alternatives.

We can all bring more mindfulness into purchase decisions by looking for brands and products that do not harm animals or the environment. 

Spread The Word

Sharing our message with friends and family can help to increase overall social awareness regarding animal welfare matters. It can also promote conscious consumerism. This is a great way to empower ourselves and others so that everyone can make strong, informed choices for themselves.
