RSPCA ACT is at Cat-pacity!

With over 200 cats and kittens in care, RSPCA ACT is looking for purrfect forever homes for a number of felines currently available for adoption.

RSPCA ACT CEO Michelle Robertson says, “Our cattery is full of beautiful adult cats desperate to find their forever homes. We’ve had a number of cats in care for a long period of time and we want to find them their perfect match just in time for Christmas”

To help make room for other vulnerable cats and kittens on our long surrender wait list who are in need of help, RSPCA ACT is making adult cats available for adoption for $99.  This will be case until the end of December 2020.

Every cat available for adoption is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and health checked by our team.

“Some adult cats have cat flu and would really benefit from being out of the shelter environment and in a permanent loving home.” Ms Robertson explained.

With our cattery full and more than 30 cats on the waiting list to come into the shelter to be rehomed, our Animal Care team is desperate to find well matched and loving homes for the adult cats currently available for adoption.

“As our cattery exceeds capacity, we see an increase in the likelihood of spread of illness and disease. This means not only will animals stay longer to recover, but a greater stretch on our resources here at the shelter.” Says Ms Robertson.

There may be families who have been thinking about adopting a cat for some time, but for whom the adoption fee may have been prohibiting.

However, while Christmas may be the purrfect time to welcome a new pet into your household RSPCA ACT encourage all would-be adopters to consider the long-term commitment to owning a pet. Including the ongoing costs of food, litter, enrichment and potential medical costs involved.

Adult cats available for the $99 adoption fee include 4-year-old Wallace who has been in care for 109 days and Cory who arrived at the shelter as a stray.

Thanks to shelter partner Hills Pet Nutrition, 25% off Feline Science Diet will also be included with every cat adoption.

Animals available for are listed and profiled on our website and bookings are required for adoption online. Head to to find your perfect match!
