Zoo Studio Charity Work

Zoo Studio Charity Work

 Zoo Studio Charity Work is to help raise even more money for Australian animal charities and causes. Ever since Zoo Studio was born we have undertaken many charity projects each year, to help raise awareness and much needed funds for the wonderful work that is done.


Why We Do It

it’s not only our priority, it’s our duty

We passionately believe that Animal Welfare is a top priority, and that as a successful business in the pet industry it is our duty to do what we can to help those animals in need, and the people who help them. Charities we have supported over the years include RSPCA QLD and WA, Queensland Amstaff and Staffy Rescue, Cat Cuddle Cafe Brisbane, Pugs SOS, ABC Rescue, Chihuahua Rescue QLD, Fresh Start Rescue QLD, Delta Dog, Oscars Law, SAFE Perth, Bat Conservation and Rescue Queensland, FAUNA, Little Paws Kitten Rescue, Peiradise Shar Pei Rescue, GSD’s in Need, Labrador Rescues and many more. 

“We passionately believe that Animal Welfare is a top priority”

We have photographed for books, calendars and gift cards to sell to raise money, we have held exhibitions and auctioned off our art to raise money, we have hosted photo booths to raise money, and we have provided prizes to many charities to auction off or sell as raffle items. We have also provided our photographing services valued at many hundreds of thousands of dollars to animal charities for free. This is all part of  Zoo Studio Charity Work.

Below are some of the organisations that Zoo Studio Charity Work has worked with on charity fundraising projects.


Cat Cuddle Cafe is a rescue dedicated to saving the lives of the unwanted, abandoned, and
neglected cats of Brisbane and the surrounding area. The rescue was established over 20 years ago, and is proud to maintain a no-kill policy, caring for and rehoming cats that may otherwise not be considered adoptable.  Some, but not all, of the cats in care have special needs. Others just need someone to love.

The cats are cared for by a network of foster carers have opened their hearts and homes up to look after cats, kittens and mothers to be. For cats with long term conditions, they also provide all the love and care they need to live their fullest life.

In 2015 we opened Australia’s first cat café run by a rescue, allowing people to enjoy organic and fairtrade coffee whilst interacting with some of the rescues cats and kittens available for adoption. 100% of the profits from the cafe go towards the rescue and rehoming program.

QLD staffy and amStaff Rescue

QLD Staffy and Amstaff Rescue (QSAR) are all about improving the lives of Staffordshire Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers and their crosses in need of help. They do this by providing rescue, foster care, education, training support, and adoption into safe and loving homes. Their  work involve but is not limited to advertising, marketing, transporting, feeding, vet work, medical care, and temporary kenneling, fostering or homing.

Coming Soon – ‘Paws & Reflect’
An Exclusive New Book by Lorraine Charlecrafte – Photographer at Zoo Studio

In times of crisis, we believe in taking time to pause and reflect on what we have, what we are grateful for and how we can help others when they need it most.

That’s why, the team at Zoo Studio are teaming up with the NSW Wildlife Information and Rescue Education Service (WIRES) to create ‘Paws & Reflect’; a limited-edition coffee table book featuring past and present Zoo Studio fur-babies and  wildlife affected by the current bushfires.

Book your studio session with us today and your fur-baby will feature in Paws & Reflect alongside bushfire affected wildlife!

100% of proceeds from every Paws & Reflect book sold will be donated directly to WIRES to help fight for the survival of our country’s native creatures.

$100 from each session booked will be donated to WIRES, plus, each fur-baby will receive a Zoo Studio gift certificate valued at $300 in thanks for their support at this difficult time.

“It is always an honor to photograph the beautiful fur babies that come through our studio with their human families. We get to learn and discover all about their personality and character and what their families love and adore about them. However, sadly there is another side of those animals  less fortunate than ours. The ones who don’t get to sleep on warm beds, or curl up next to other fur and human family. The ones who are scared and timid and who have been mistreated. It’s the charities and rescues that strive to help make a difference in their world to show them that they deserve a second chance. That’s what Zoo Studio Charity Work strives to help do – help make a difference in all their worlds!”
