Animal ‘clear-out’


THE RSPCA will reduce prices for adoptions of animals as part of a “clear the shelter” program from Friday to Sunday.

Visitors to the Peninsula Animal shelter, 1030 Robinsons Road, Pearcedale, will be charged a $29 adoption fee for dogs, cats, guinea pigs and rabbits.

“This promotion is all about finding homes for the animals in our care, and providing an incentive to those looking for a new pet to consider adoption,” RSPCA Victoria CEO Dr Liz Walker said.

“We monitor adoption promotions carefully and have found that the price someone pays to acquire an animal has no impact on return rates and no negative impact on the animal’s welfare. All available research confirms this.

“RSPCA Victoria does not put a number on how long an animal is in our care, with some animals available for adoption being with us for almost a year.”

Adoption animals are desexed, microchipped and vaccinated, with health and behaviour checked.

Visit: The Pearcedale centre’s number is 5978 9000.

Promotion runs from Friday 23rd February – Sunday 25th February 2018.
