RSPCA ACT reminds pet owners to avoid Easter Dangers

With Easter fast approaching, we are all anticipating the heavenly chocolate coma that awaits us. But for now, it’s time to talk about chocolate and your pets. While some people may argue that they have given chocolate to their pet with no adverse effects; it is vital to note that like any food or medicine, the reaction to the toxin is dependent on the dosage and the circumstances.

By closing time on Saturday, 93% of adoptable animals at RSPCA ACT found their forever homes. Of all the animals ready for adoption, only 9 animals were not adopted. One of the dogs who did not find her forever home, is Mitsy, who has been in our care for over 200 days. Mitsy is desperately looking for her perfect family and needs someone with plenty of backyard space and 6ft Colourbond fencing. Mitsy loves to play with tennis balls, and despite her size is quite
