Adopt an RSPCA NSW animal and get a best friend for life.

Exceptional Owners

RSPCA NSW has many animals who need a little extra care to stay happy, healthy and safe. That’s why we are on the lookout to find those exceptional owners. These pet owners open their homes and hearts for these special animals, and ensure they receive the specific care or housing necessary to give them a happy, stable life.

RSPCA NSW will always provide adoptees of these special animals with clear care guidelines and, in some cases, other ongoing help or support.

An animal may need to be adopted by an exceptional owner if they fall into one or more of the categories below:

  • Long-term behaviour support
  • Old age
  • Ongoing medical condition e.g. diabetes
  • End of life care
  • Restricted or specialised housing

If you’re interested in becoming an exceptional owner and caring for animals that needed a little extra attention please email us here.  To find animals needing an exceptional owner search on Adoptapet and tick the “special needs” box.
