ARE YOU LOOKING FOR LASTING LOVE THIS LONG WEEKEND?
RSPCA WA is launching its ‘Lasting Love’ promotion over the WA Day long weekend, which will see all of its long term residents available for adoption at half the usual price.
The special adoption price - available only from Friday June 3 to Monday June 6 relates to all the dogs, cats and other pets that have been available for adoption for five months or more, and includes microchipping, sterilisation, vaccinations and behaviour assessments by RSPCA WA.
RSPCA WA Executive Manager of Community Engagement, Maree Daniels says the reason for the Lasting Companions promotion was to find homes for as many long term pets as possible over the public holiday weekend.
“Some pets can remain under our care for a long period of time for a variety of reasons, maybe they’re not the prettiest or the youngest, but each still has their own charm and potential to make lasting, loyal and wonderful new family members, she said.
“There is no time limit to how long an animal might be with us waiting for its suitable new home, but we’d much rather see them enjoying being part of a family as soon as they are ready.
“We are hopeful we can find suitable homes for as many as possible this long weekend, which will in turn create space for us to take in more animals who need us in the weeks to come.”
RSPCA WA’s Animal Care Centre is based at 108 Malaga Drive, Malaga, and is open every day from 10.00am to 5.00pm including the long weekend. Animal lovers can also view potential pets online at www.adoptapet.com.au
RSPCA WA relies on donations and community support to generate more than 90% of the funds required to sustain its animal protection work, as only six percent is covered by a grant from the State Government.
