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.

Harvey is a beautiful Golden Retriever, who sadly came to the RSPCA as a puppy after he was found locked in a suitcase. RSPCA Inspector Tyson soon discovered that Harvey was put in the suitcase because his owner was having his carpet cleaned before a property assessment and had to leave for an exam. Luckily for Harvey he was adopted by a wonderful family who include him in everything they do. He’s now loving life playing in a big backyard with a pool where he can swim to his heart’s content. Harvey’s family think they’re the lucky ones though to have found him at the RSPCA!
Popcorn and Caramel
Popcorn and Caramel came to the RSPCA on their own but soon became best friends and when their new family came looking for a small pet to love, they were adopted together! This cute duo now enjoy their days in their hutch nibbling on grass and strawberries, which are their favourite foods. They enjoy coming inside at night for warmth and sometimes sneak into bed in the morning for cuddles.
When Lynda and her family met Miah they fell immediately in love. This was good news for Miah who sadly had a very rough start, coming to the RSPCA after she was found confined in a small cage that was so rusted it had to be broken so she could be removed. Renamed Miah, to represent her new found freedom, her family say Miah gives them so much love and laughter, and their lives feel so full with her in them.
Cleo was surrendered to the RSPCA as a kitten during the very busy breeding season. During this season RSPCA shelters across the country receive hundreds of kittens and their mothers in need of new homes. 10 years later, Cleo’s family say that she is a much loved member of the family who’s always reliable to greet you at the door when you get home and show you plenty of attention.
