ARMIDALE RSPCA FINDS HANDFUL OF ‘FUR-EVER’ HOMES FOR NEGLECTED PETS

It was a busy morning for volunteers at Armidale’s RSPCA branch, with a high number of animals adopted.

It comes as volunteers continue to experience a spike in neglected animals, due to unwanted litters.

By midday, the shelter had sold all of its dogs, with plenty of kittens, of all shapes and colours, still awaiting their ‘fur-ever’ family.

The organisation was also offering microchipping to locals.

“We literally couldn’t get set up early enough this morning, we had a ‘puppy queue’ heading out of the shelter and our puppies disappeared literally in the first hour. And we’re full of kittens today… It’s definitely kitten season!”

The RSPCA runs ‘Adopt a Pet Day’ on the first Saturday of every month.
