Our shelters offer accommodation and care for abandoned, neglected, sick and surrendered animals.

Central West (Orange) Shelter

Our Orange Shelter provides shelter and care to animals that can no longer be taken care of by their owners. Animals arriving at shelters come from a variety of sources, including those:

  • seized by an inspector under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1979
  • surrendered by an owner

The shelter offers volunteering opportunities, microchipping services, as well as advice and support for pet owners in the community. There is also an extensive Foster Care program and a small pet retail shop.

All animals suitable for adoption can be found here.

***Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, this location is closed until further notice. If you need assistance, please contact us on 1300 278 3589. Read more about how our services have been impacted here.***

Shelter FAQs

Our shelters do not have the means to accept uninjured stray animals. If you find an uninjured stray animal, you will be referred to your local council pound.

You can see all animals available for adoption here.

Animals available for adoption have undergone a comprehensive veterinary check, and have undergone any other veterinary treatment and rehabilitation necessary. The adoption fee helps cover part of these costs and allows RSPCA NSW to continue caring for animals in need.
