Do you speak cat? Please help change lives – become a Foster Carer.

RSPCA ACT is seeking meowvellous cat-speaking, cat loving Canberrans to open up their homes and hearts to be foster carers for kitties in need. As the months grow warmer, the shelter expects to be seeing another influx of kittens requiring care, socialisation and loving hands until they find their forever homes.

Valuing your 'friendchips' with your furry friend on International Microchip Day

RSPCA ACT is reminding Canberra pet owners who value their friend-chips with their furry friends, to get them chipped and if they are already chipped, to check that all details are up to date.

International Cat Day

They're furry, independent, full of sass and vibrate like no one's business. We love cats and what better time to celebrate our furry overlords than with 'International Cat Day'? Wednesday 8th August is ‘International Cat Day’, a cat-tastic time to reflect and celebrate the bond between cat and human, but also, to advocate for their care and protection. They bring so much to our lives and ask for so little in return – just non-stop scratches (but not too many, don’t be clingy), delicious food from a full bowl (not half-full, don’t disrespect them like that), world domination and your full and
