How we're making a difference...

Bangalow Koalas

"Bangalow Koalas is a not-for-profit charity devoted to protecting and saving our koala population in the Northern Rivers of NSW. We are so grateful for all the support and donations received from Perfect Pets over the past year. Without their help and the help of others we would not have achieved what we have in the short time we have been operating..."  Linda Sparrow - President, Bangalow Koalas

Pets in the Park

"Perfect pets has been a wonderful supporter of the Pets in the Park Canberra. Pets in the Park Canberra provides free veterinary care to companion animals of some of Canberra most vulnerable members of the community who are either homeless or at risk of homelessness. Perfect Pets has provided much needed donations of warm dog coats and jackets as part of our Winter Clothing appeal, much needed through the tough Canberra winter..." Gina Rasmussen, Pets in the Park

Lionsbane Rhodesian Ridgbacks

"Our small kennel is proud to be registered with Perfect Pets. This site has the highest standards of ethics and supports informed decisions for those looking to invest in a furry family member. Perfect Pets require breeders to advise of their practices regarding health screening and breeding ethics. This is important to create a better experience for companion animals and their humans! It is wonderful to be able to refer prospective puppy buyers to this site." Lisa Wardlaw-Kelly, Lionsbane Kennels

Pets & Positive Ageing

"We are grateful for the generous support Pets and Positive Ageing Inc has received from Perfect Pets in promoting our mission, advocating on behalf of older people and their pets, and our events. Perfect Pets is a terrific and effective pet-friendly platform reaching an extensive community of pet owners, rescue groups and businesses, with an ethical approach which we applaud..."  Dr. Eloise Bright -President, Pets and Positive Ageing


Bordermojo Border Collies 

"My experience with Perfect Pets has been really positive.  We have received a number of inquiries for litters via the website and the caliber of those inquiring is also high.  I prefer to advertise in a space where the administrators hold similar views to my own around ensuring pups come from reputable, registered breeders.

Perfect Pets only allow registered Australian National Kennel Club (ANKC) breeders list on their site.  Therefore ensuring that pups you purchase from the site are bred by breeders who must adhere to strict ANKC requirements. ANKC breeders have very strict guidelines that protect both our lines, our litters, our pups mothers and the health of our breed..."  BorderMojo Border Collies


Wazzat Xoloitcuintle

"I was approached by Maria many years ago to ask about the breed XOLOITZCUINTLE for a breed information piece for Perfect Pets.  It is very important that all breeders embrace the correct information the community are given about Pure Bred Dog breeds. Maria was thorough and in depth with all of her questions and the finished articles. I cannot thank Maria and her team enough for the support of the breed and all the help they have freely given..." Regards Jacqi and the Wazzat Team Wazzat XOLOitzcuintle Australia

Nintu Cattery

"As a well established breeder, I receive many many inquiries, most of which are timewasters. Inquiries which come through Perfectpets are never timewasters – these are buyers who have done their research and know what they want. I love using Perfectpets because of the high quality of the monitoring of their breeder/advertisers. I feel that by being approved to advertise on Perfectpets I am partaking of their quality assurance, due to the high standards that they set. I never advertise on sites which let just anyone advertise, this is tantamount to condoning backyard breeders. Of pet sites where I have advertised in the past, Perfectpets is best regulated, the potential buyers genuine, and the site works very well so that inquiries reach me promptly." Truda Straede, Nintu Cattery

Greyhound Rescue

"Perfect Pets have been a huge help to Greyhound Rescue by helping us to secure food for our Kennel Kids. As a charity that relied on donations it has meant a great deal to us!..." Nat Panzarino - President, Greyhound Rescue



Forgotten Souls Dog Rescue

“As a not for profit rescue, we rely solely on donations of any sort, but of course the most important is food to feed our big, beautiful souls in Foster Care!  We were approached by Perfect Pets and offered a regular food drive which we of course jumped at and have since picked up our first load which was beyond amazing!  It is currently being put to good use in all our Foster homes. We couldn’t be more thankful for the support that they are giving not only us, but the whole rescue community ...” Emma - Forgotten Souls Dog Rescue - Rescued | Re-Homed | Remembered

Cherished Pets Foundation

"I have known the Founder of Perfect Pets, Maria Arnold for over 12 years through our shared activities in the conservation, animal welfare and companion pet spaces. Maria is genuine and walks the talk when it comes to ethical practice. She recognized a very real gap in the companion pet industry and saw a solution in Perfect Pets. Her vision of creating a digital community for ethical pet service providers, whether they be breeders, rescue groups, vets, groomers or other, is bold and ambitious and completely needed. It is not an easy task, and her commitment and attention to detail in ensuring a framework for ethical practice in this space is inspiring. It is a work in progress, and the task enormous, and it deserves as much support as we can collaboratively provide. As a human animal bond veterinarian caring for pets and people, I see the relationship that thrives or dies when pets and people connect. To enable the bond to thrive we need to ensure a correct match; source well bred, well managed, well fed and well cared for pets through ethical channels; and educate humans on pet care, breeding, behavior, management, welfare and sustainability. These are all key factors to creating longer term solutions to dealing with the problems of surplus pets and poor breeding practices that our companion pet industry currently faces. I am excited about the progress of Perfect Pets. I see its true potential to play a pivotal role in reaching, educating and connecting people who are committed to a kind, just and sustainable future for pets and people..." Dr Alicia Kennedy | BSc BVMS Veterinarian & CEO - Cherished Pets Community Veterinary Care Founding Director - Cherished Pets Foundation

Mokai Mini Schnauzers

"I chose Perfect Pets as it is for registered breeders and I have been able to reach families who are looking for a forever puppy.  I've been very happy with the the families and others that have contacted me looking for an ethical breeder!" Helen Aitken-Kuhnen, Mokai Schnauzers

Labrador Rescue

"Labrador Rescue have been the recipients of food donations organised by Maria at Perfect Pets. Her thoughtfulness and generosity will allow us to give some of our foster carers some great quality food to provide for their foster dogs. The organisation and ease of pick up of the food is fantastic as Labrador Rescue has only volunteers who are already busy with so many other things associated with rescue so this support and assistance is very much appreciated by our team and our dogs in care!" Wendy, NSW State Coordinator, Labrador Rescue



"As a volunteer for a national charity that operates in ten different locations across Australia, I have had the pleasure of meeting Maria from Perfect Pets. Maria is passionate about animals and is a valuable source of information and knowledge. Her passion for animal welfare is evident in the way that she operates her organisation – her words are very much supported by her actions. She has an incredible network of contacts and happily connects people working for animal-related charities to facilitate and foster relationships that provide a beneficial outcome for all parties – most importantly, the animals..." Paula


Rainbow Paws

"In July 2019, Perfect Pets generously donated over 100kgs of dog food and several bags of kitty litter to The Rainbow Paws Program. It is these types of generous donations from kind hearted organisations that enable us to provide support for the pets of vulnerable people in the Canberra Community. Thank you Perfect Pets for your wonderful donation!" Natasha, Rainbow Paws
