Shelter goes on adoption drive

The RSPCA is slashing its animal adoption fees for three days with the ambition of rehoming all the animals in its care.

Dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits and guinea pigs at the organisation’s Bendigo and Castlemaine animals shelters will be available for adoption for a significantly reduced price next weekend.

RSPCA Victoria chief executive officer Liz Walker said the animal welfare organisation wanted to encourage anyone interested in a new pet to consider adoption.

“We would love to see all of our animals adopted this weekend because pets belong in a home, not a shelter,” she said.

“We’re hoping the reduced fees will encourage those considering a new addition to their family to take the next step.”

From July 21 to July 23, the adoption fees will be:  

  • Dogs (four months+) $50
  • Puppies $100
  • Cats (four months+) $30
  • Kittens $50
  • Rabbits & Guinea Pigs: $30
  • Mature cats and dogs (10 years+) No Fee
