About us....


Since 1 July 2014, the Society of Companion Animal Rescuers (SoCares) has been managing the Charmhaven impound operations on behalf of Central Coast Council. 


SoCares aims to reunite lost pets with their owners or find forever homes for every healthy adoptable animal.


We work closely with rescue groups to move animals out of the shelter and into foster care while waiting for adoption.


SoCares is a registered Not For Profit Charity ABN 22106398721 and all donations are fully tax deductible.
