RSPCA NSW Shelters re-open to the public! Posted on June 15, 2020 RSPCA NSW shelters and care centres across the state are ready to welcome walk-in adoptions effective Monday 15 June 2020. Opening our doors again to the public will bring an end to our successful ‘Adopt from Home’ program. Launched in April, the online initiative found homes for 2680 animals in RSPCA NSW shelters and Petbarns across the state. “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,” says RSPCA NSW CEO Steve Coleman. “We hope this support will continue as we re-open our doors to the public to adopt animals in our care.” Please see below to find the latest opening hours for your nearest RSPCA NSW shelter, care centre, and vet clinic, as they may have changed.
