About us


About Strong Hearts

Strong Hearts was founded over ten years ago, by two sisters - Michayla and Jess. It started as a rescue for farmed animals, but has since branched off to become a rescue for dogs and cats as well.

Strong Hearts is passionate about raising awareness about the plight of farmed animals, and to educate people to see farmed animals as individuals, who seek love, warmth and comfort. We also raise awareness about the importance of adoption - both for farmed animals and companion animals. Desexing is such an important element to helping aleviate the companion animal crisis.

Strong Hearts is based in Melbourne, Australia. We rehabilitate farmed animals on our two properties, and prepare them for adoption. For the dog and cat branch of our rescue, we have foster carers throughout Melbourne who care for our rescue pets until they are ready for adoption.

Adopt, don't shop!

How we operate

Strong Hearts and it's farm animal, cat and dog rescue components is made up entirely of volunteers. Not a single person who works at Strong Hearts is paid to do the work. They are all just extraordinary people who donate their time and incredible amount of energy, love and dedication. Most, if not all of our volunteers somehow balance jobs, families and lives but somehow find the time to dedicate their time to support this special cause.

It is for this reason that we ask you please be kind and patient when dealing with our volunteers as they all do what they can whenever they find the time.

We have teams of volunteers that assist with:

  • Transport and logistics

  • Foster caring

  • Adoption administration
