Dog and puppy adoptions

Dogs and Puppies

To view animals available for adoption please click the "See the animals" button below. Ensure to read and understand the adoption requirements of the animal you are interested in. If there are no suitable animals available for adoption your appointment may be rescheduled or cancelled.

Adoption appointments are available 2 days in advance, if there are no adoption bookings available all appointments have been booked out. Please check back later for new availabilities.

RSPCA ACT asks that individuals wanting to make an appointment are prepared to take animals home on the day, RSPCA ACT does not place holds on animals. Dogs and puppies will be adopted to the first suitable applicant, so please read the information below to help speed up the adoption process.

Important notes for Dogs and Puppies

If you have a resident dog in your home, please ensure they attend the appointment with you so a dog-to-dog meet and greet can be facilitated.

All members of your residing household (including children) must meet the dog prior to adoption. Please bring along photographs or a short video of your backyard to provide staff information about the security and fencing of your backyard.

If you live in a rental property, written permission from your landlord must be provided to staff.
