About Us

Life of Pikelet is a rescue foster family, a registered business that functions for charitable purposes and a highly regarded social media influencer. But more than that, it’s a family.

Not just another pretty face on social media. Pikelet is a pup with a purpose!

Once upon a time back in early 2013, a little red staffy pup found himself alone and on death row, sitting on the cold concrete floor of a cage at a Sydney council pound.  How he ended up unwanted and unloved we’ll never know, but what happened next changed his and his now family’s life, forever.

A rescue organisation called Big Dog Rescue, quickly stepped in and took this little boy under their wing, contacting a foster family they knew would love and care for him. And that they did, and still do. Yep, his foster family soon became his forever home, falling in love with his playful, gentle nature and giving him a name they knew would capture the essence of his sweetness, Pikelet.

Fast forward five years later and Pikelet Butterwiggle is officially acclaimed worldwide as Australia’s premier Rescue Ambassadog and big Foster Brother Extraordinaire. Featured around the world in mainstream media, Pikelet’s star later rose to fame with his Penguin Random House published life memoirs “The Extraordinary Life of Pikelet” in May 2017. Everybody loves an underdog, and Pikelet truly is just that.

Living in Australia with his Ma and rescue pup siblings, Betty, Blanche, wingmen little bros Patty Cakes, Pumpernickel, Papadum and Powerade and two beautiful sanctuary sisters fallow does ‘Pony’ & ‘Patootie’, this little family are working hard to change the stigma of what it means to be a ‘rescue’ dog here in Australia.

Using their social media channels, Pikelet and his equally charming little brothers Patty Cakes, Pumpernickel, Papadum and Powerade are providing the world one silly, cute, funny, beautiful photo at a time, proving that ‘rescue’ doesn’t always mean ‘damaged’ or ‘broken’.

Together the Life of Pikelet family have successfully cared for and rehomed over 80 foster siblings and have assisted with the rehoming of hundreds more. They have also donated an excess of $170,000 to a wide range of animal rescues and charitable causes with the aim to donate so much more!

Pikelet would love you to join him, his family and fellow loyal Life of Pikers on their adventures by signing up and spreading the word that ‘rescue’ truly is the best breed.
