AMRRIC (Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities) is a national not-for-profit organisation that works with remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to improve the health of their companion animals. In doing so, we are helping to create healthier, safer and happier communities.
AMRRIC’s work focuses on companion animals. To date, the biggest need has been around dogs, which have been the focus of many of our resources and projects. However, recognising the increase in cats being kept as pets in remote communities, AMRRIC’s focus has broadened. We aim to teach Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Rural and Remote communities to properly manage their companion animals.
A significant component of AMRRIC’s work is education, capacity building and the sharing of knowledge. We have developed a range of outstanding resources to support our training, school educations and field programs.
Are you an animal lover who’s keen to embark on a life changing experience? AMRRIC volunteers help to change the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their companion animals. If you’re not able to volunteer, you can hold a fundraiser in your community to raise vital funds so we can continue our work!
