Apply now to become a puppy carer

Thank you for your interest in becoming a 12 month puppy carer. Please complete the application form below and submit it.

This program is taking applications across most local government areas across Greater Melbourne, Greater Geelong and surrounds, Mornington Peninsula, Macedon Ranges, Bendigo and Ballarat regions, selected areas in the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast in Queensland, and Central Coast and selected areas in Northern Sydney including Hornsby Shire Council and City of Parramatta New South Wales.

Once we receive your application, our friendly team will notify you if you are in an area that is currently open to puppy caring, or will add you to our waitlist.


To proceed with this application, all details must be of the primary puppy carer only.

Thanks for your interest in puppy caring. Our carer admin team is taking a break over the holiday season (however our puppies are in the wonderful hands of carers, on site staff and volunteers). We look forward to process new applications when the office reopens on January 8. We will be in touch with all new applicants in the new year. Thank you for your patience. Have a safe and happy festive season.
