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. Where can I see all animals available for adoption? You can see all animals available for adoption here. Why do you charge adoption fees? 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. Is there only one shelter in Sydney? Yes, there is only one shelter in Sydney located at Yagoona. However, we do have a Care Centre at Rouse Hill that also has animals available for adoption.
