Rockys K9 Rescue

About Rockys Rescue

Rocky’s K9 Rescue was set up by Merna Karam to save dogs and cats from a death sentence at the pounds in NSW. Our aim is to re-home good and deserving animals with a new family for the rest of the pet’s life.

Rocky’s is staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers who work as foster carers, transport the animals, work on fundraising campaigns, administration, website,  and Facebook and social media.
