Illoura Animal Refuge is a not-for-profit animal shelter located in the heart of the Derwent Valley. Illoura, provides refuge to hundreds of stray, unwanted, abandoned and mistreated farm and companion animals. We focus on rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming while providing permanent residence to many animals that due to circumstance, cannot be rehomed.
Illoura was founded and is run by young animal activist, Grace Hills, from her home in Hayes We specialise in poultry rescue as well as working towards significantly reducing local stray and feral cat populations through various programs and strategies.
We strive to promote responsible pet ownership through highlighting the importance of desexing and microchipping. We rehome cats and dogs once they have been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated.
These animals require frequent vet visits, surgeries, medications, x-rays, ultrasounds blood tests and more. Costs are covered by Grace and her supporters. If you can help by donating money to pay the vet bills, there are some critters and people who would be very grateful. Please donate to:
