Over 11,000 animals found new homes through RSPCA NSW in the 2012/2013 financial year. While most were adopted throughout shelters, almost 1,000 were through our Care Centres, around 700 were adopted through our partnership with Petbarn, and our Volunteer Branches placed hundreds of animals as well.

Choosing the right pet for you is fun, but takes time, planning and lots of research.

You need to consider very carefully both your needs and the needs of any animal that comes into your life; for example, how much time you can spend for exercise, how much space you have and how much you can afford to pay for food, toys and possible vet bills.

To make this process easier, the RSPCA has introduced Adoptapet, a national website that lets you view some of the animals waiting adoption at RSPCA locations across Australia.

Thanks to the RSPCA, Bendigo Bank and VISA, you can now begin the search for your new friend from the comfort and convenience of your desktop. And when you've found the type of pet you think might be right for you, you can just contact the relevant location to find out more and make arrangements to meet potential new family members.

But the best reason to adopt your new pet from the RSPCA is, not only will you be giving a new home to an animal that really needs you, but through your support you'll be helping the RSPCA to assist many more animals that might not have a chance otherwise.

All RSPCA animals:
• are expertly checked by a veterinarian and temperament tested
• are microchipped and desexed where relevant
• come in different shapes and sizes, including pure breeds and mixed breeds
• have been given love and attention while at the shelter from dedicated, caring RPSCA staff and volunteers.

Browsing through Adoptapet, you'll see that many wonderful pets find their way to the RSPCA for a number of different reasons and all are thoroughly health checked and temperament tested before being offered up for adoption by the RSPCA.

The experienced staff at the RSPCA can provide advice on the best type of pet for you and how to care for him or her properly.

Most importantly, when you adopt a pet from us, you are not only giving an animal the chance at a new life, you’re supporting the continuing efforts of the RSPCA to care for all animals throughout Australia.
