Why adopt

Every year, the RSPCA provides shelter to thousands of animals in need of a good home. By choosing adoption, you’ll not only have the chance to make a friend for life, but you’ll be giving an animal a second chance and helping support the RSPCA.

A second chance: wonderful pets come through our doors every day for a wide range of different reasons, through no fault of their own. These include animals surrendered by their previous owners, and sadly some who have suffered neglect or cruelty. By adopting an animal in need, you’ll truly be giving a second chance to someone who needs it.

Find your perfect match: our RSPCA staff really get to know the animals in adoption centres and Petbarn stores, so we can help you meet and fall in love with the pet who’s right for you!

Pets are well looked after: all RSPCA animals undergo health and behaviour assessments, are fed a nutritious and healthy diet, and all dogs and cats are desexed, microchipped, and vaccinated.

Supporting the RSPCA: every dollar of your adoption fee helps us care for other animals, as well as investigating and prosecuting animal cruelty and educating the community about responsible pet ownership.
