RSPCA NSW is calling out to the community to help us to find homes for the2,577 animals still currently in our care.
As of today, anyone interested in adopting a furry or feathered friend fromRSPCA NSW must make an appointment before visiting one of our locations.
If you are interested in adopting an animal, please fill out an appointmentrequest form. After you have submitted the request for an appointment, a staffmember will be in touch to arrange a meet and greet.
“Now, as this pandemic escalates, we are asking for your help to find foreverhomes for the animals in our care. We ask anyone considering an animalcompanion to think about RSPCA NSW,” says RSPCA NSW CEO Steve Coleman.
“We will need your help as throughout this, RSPCA NSW will remain committed tothe care, treatment and welfare of all in-care and incoming animals.”
At this time, when the community is being encouraged to stay at home, thepresence of an animal companion can be priceless. A pet can be a much-neededcomfort, a giver of furry hugs, a listening ear. They make excellentcolleagues. They offer unconditional love at a time when you may not be ableto be in the presence of your loved ones.
The changes to the usual adoption process are temporary. As we are operatingwith a reduced number of staff, please be patient with us at this time.
These changes have been implemented to protect the health and safety of ourstaff and the wider community. In keeping with advice from the AustralianGovernment, these measures will ensure that the number of people in ourshelters at any one time is kept to a minimum.
RSPCA NSW also relies heavily on its foster care network to provide temporaryhomes to animals who need a helping hand. If you are interested in fosteringan animal you can help us by registering to be a foster carer online here.
While COVID-19 is having an impact on many aspects of our lives, sadly, animalcruelty has not stopped. We will still be providing assistance to incominganimals in need.
All animals available for adoption can be found online atwww.rspcansw.org.au/adopt
