There’s nothing better than coming home to a fur baby.

Let’s be real – happiness is coming home and knowing your pet is there to greet you. So, if you’re looking for a little (or big!) buddy, then we’ve got some news for you.

This weekend, the RSPCA is on a mission to ‘Clear the Shelters’ with adoption fees reduced to $29 for all animals great and small across the country.

The organisation aims to re-home as many animals as possible over the three-day adoption drive starting this Friday.

Last year, a whopping 2,654 animals, totalling 90% of all animals in RSPCA’s care, found their furever homes across the country.

However, some animals, such as Kevin the Great Dane, did not find a forever home last time. But, we think 2020 is his year!

NSW has over 700 animals available for adoption, including puppies, dogs, kittens, cats and pocket pets like bunnies, guinea pigs and tiny mice, turkeys, duck and chickens, Charlie the Miniature Horse and Sheepy the sheep will be looking for their forever homes.

Rest assured that while adoption fees will be drastically reduced, normal adoption procedures will apply to ensure every animal is matched with the right family. This includes one-on-one meetings with prospective adoptive parents and future fur-siblings. The animals will have already been desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and undergone veterinary checks and behavioural assessments.

It’s also important to note that there is zero effect on the welfare of animals adopted for reduced prices. The long-term success of adoptions is not influenced by the cost of acquiring the animal and there is no negative effect on their welfare.

Even though the $29 adoption fee does not come close to covering the cost of treating and caring for the animals, you can’t put a price on finding forever homes for animals in need.
