Adoption Applications

Adoption Applications

Due to COVID19 lockdown restraints, we have revised our current adoption process which is now by application. This allows RSPCA ACT to maintain appropriate social distancing and reduce foot traffic within the shelter.

Applications 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 appropriate page below, read and complete and application form. Due to staffing and time constraints it may not be possible to notify you if the animal has already been adopted or if your application is unsuccessful.

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.
