Your visit to the SPCA is an exciting event for our animals! You will be enthusiastically welcomed by an onslaught of happy purrs, body rubs, excited barks and crazily wagging tails of the many animals that are awaiting homes at our Adoption Centres.
Adoption saves TWO lives:
Every lucky animal that leaves our Adoption Centre - makes space
for another one to find a loving home!
The adoption animals at SPCA come from many sources. Some are surrendered by their owners, some are
rescued by our inspectors or members of the public, whilst others have been taken from neglect or cruelty situations.
After checks by our vets and behavioural assessments by our trainers, they are then given the OK to be put up for adoption.
Tens of thousands of people have adopted pets from the SPCA and enjoy many, many happy years together with their adopted companions.
Everybody has a unique adoption story - some adopters feel very connected with an animal they meet at SPCA. Others have made a conscious choice to adopt a pet, instead of buying one. We often have adopters returning to adopt another pet when looking for a second pet or after their first adopted pet has passed away.
