Welcome to Honey’s Pledge Inc.

Honey’s Pledge Inc. is our animal rescue and rehoming project, based on our property in central Victoria, Australia. We believe every animal has a right not only to live out their natural life, but to live out that life with as much quality as is possible.

We do not have all the answers, we cannot ‘save’ every animal. We are limited by our resources.  We do what we can.

As well as directly assisting animals who come into our care we have a strong ethos of working with other individuals and groups with the same aim, in educating our community on cruelty free living and how each and every one of us can make a difference.

and Honey…..well read on….
