Adoption Appointments

Adoption Appointments

In the interest of the health and safety of our staff and members of the public, adoption appointments are required for anyone interested in meeting an animal available for adoption. This allows RSPCA ACT to maintain appropriate social distancing and reduce foot traffic within the shelter.

Bookings are essential for all adoptions. Head to our Adopt a Pet page to find animals available for adoption.

When you have found an animal you are interested in, select the specific booking page below, read and fill out all required information. Filling out all required information will help speed up the adoption process.

Due to a limited number of available animals, there may be times were suitable animals are adopted prior to your appointment. Please contact us or check our website prior to your appointment to see if the animal you are interested in is still available.

On arrival to the shelter please sanitise your hands prior to interaction with animals or RSPCA staff. Any visitors that are visibly unwell with cold or flu symptoms will not be permitted entry.
