Welcome to NEAST!

We are a small non-profit registered charity located in north-eastern Tasmania that provides a safe haven for abandoned, uncared-for and stray animals in need of help and rehoming.

All of our animals receive health checks, vaccinations, microchipping, neuter/spaying and flea/worm treatments, and are placed with foster families where possible, as they await their permanent homes.

NEAST is a No Kill sanctuary and we are dedicated to finding the right homes for our animals.

Please check our adoption page if you are looking for a new member of your family!

NEAST founder Michelle Jesson manages a litter of black and white puppies as they pose for a photo in a yellow bathtub.

How you can help




Not yet ready to adopt or not able to at this time?

Fostering can be a wonderful alternative for short or long term care.

Maybe you have a spare weekend where you can give a long term carer a little holiday?

Maybe you might feel able to help an animal recover after a surgery. No matter your situation, if you feel that you could make a difference, please contact us.


We often take on animals who require extensive veterinary treatment.

Please consider becoming a regular donor to help us to continue saving lives.

One-off contributions are also greatly appreciated.
NEAST is a registered DGR, so donations over $2 are tax deductible!
