Hunter RSPCA shelter has lots of animals available for adoption

The Hunter RSPCA shelter at Rutherford is bursting at the seams with animals in need of a home. 

RSPCA NSW regional manager Debbie Jaggers says its the perfect time to adopt a new fury friend while the kids are still enjoying the school holiday break.

She said the shelter had 28 dogs and 9 cats for adoption, and many more who would be soon be ready for a new home.

The shelter also has kittens, birds, guinea pigs, horses and goats who are seeking new homes.

Roxy, a four-year-old staffordshire bull terrier cross cattle dog has been at the shelter for 171 days.

“She is a beautiful dog, she is very special,” Ms Jaggers said.

“We are bringing her into the office for a bit of a change of scenery as she’s been here a while now.

“She’s happy to chill about.”

Roxy is looking for a home where she is the only dog as she adores human company.

Emily, a one-year-old black short hair cat, is also looking for a home. She has spent 112 days at the shelter and is looking for a home where she is the only cat.

Ms Jaggers said Emily was playful and loved human company.

The Burlington Place shelter, in Rutherford, is open every day except Tuesday.
