RSPCA NSW Clear the Shelters - February 24-26

RSPCA NSW are aiming to Clear the Shelter this weekend with $29 adoption fees state-wide for all animals great and small, regardless of age or species, in an attempt to find new homes for the hundreds of animals in care across the state.

“It’s all about finding forever homes for all our animals and giving that extra incentive for people looking for a new pet a good reason to adopt, instead of shop through somewhere like Gumtree or backyard breeders,” comments RSPCA NSW Head of Animal Care Services Brendon Neilly.

A menagerie of animals are looking for their forever homes: not just puppies and dogs, kittens and adult cats but pocket pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs, even livestock such as goats, Shetland ponies, pigs and ducks will all be available for adoption this weekend.

Last year  583 animals were rehomed during Clear the Shelter, which was 81% of animals available for adoption. This year, RSPCA NSW are aiming to have every single animal find their new forever home.

RSPCA NSW currently have 596 animals available state-wide, some having spent over 450 days in their care.

Normal adoption procedures apply, including desexing and microchipping, vaccinations, veterinary checks and behavioural procedures, as well as a one-on-one with prospective new adoptive parents, to ensure all our animals go to great homes. RSPCA NSW is also committed to making contact with each new adoptive family at both three and six months.

“We have monitored this promotion carefully and the evidence shows that there is no higher return rate whatsoever, and no negative impacts for the animal’s welfare. The majority of people are already looking at adopting a pet, and this special adoption drive helps them make that decision to adopt, not shop,” concludes Neilly.

Anyone looking for a new addition to their family is urged to visit an RSPCA NSW shelter, Care Centre or NSW Petbarn Adoption centres.

When: Friday 24th to Sunday 26th February 2017

Where: All 10 RSPCA NSW shelters, 2 Care Centres (Tuggerah and Rouse Hill) and NSW Petbarn Adoption Centres.
