Who else has come seriously close to adopting a pet during iso? Yeah, thought so. Well, now it’s even easier to find your furry best friend, because RSPCA NSW shelters have re-opened to the public.
Like most other things in the world, the RSPCA’s adoption process went completely online earlier this year. Since then, over 2900 animals were adopted out to loving families in NSW, which we truly love to see!
RSPCA NSW shelters and care centres are now open for walk-in adoptions.
The RSPCA took to Instagram to announce the very good news with, honestly, the cutest video possible. Just look at these puppies!

“Thank you to everyone who has continued to support us, it has been heart-warming to see the community turn to animal companionship during these challenging times,” RSPCA NSW CEO Steve Coleman said in a press release.
“We hope this support will continue as we re-open our doors to the public to adopt animals in our care.”
So if you’re ready to adopt your forever friend, here’s what you need to know.
Shelters and care centres are open across the state, but with updated opening times. Check out the full list of updated opening times here to make sure your local shelter will actually be open before you head in.
Social distancing restrictions are still in place at all centres, too.
You can see all the animals available for adoption here, and more details about adopting a pet here. It’s a great place for information about the adoption process and how to take care of a pet. It’s not all pats and tennis balls and cuteness overloads, after all. (But it is a lot of that, too!)
