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

Shoalhaven Shelter

Our Shoalhaven Shelter provides care, shelter and veterinary treatment to abandoned, injured, neglected and sick animals. Animals arriving at shelters come from a variety of sources, including those:

  • handed in as an injured or sick stray
  • seized by an inspector under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1979
  • surrendered by an owner

Located in Nowra, the shelter acts as the animal holding facility for Shoalhaven City Council. As well as companion animals, the shelter often has livestock available for adoption, including goats, horses, pigs, poultry and sheep. In addition, the shelter offers a Foster Care program and volunteering opportunities.

All animals suitable for adoption can be found 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.
