RSPCA NSW's Shelters Have Reopened to Vaxxed Sydneysiders If You're Keen to Adopt an Animal
Thousands of animals were adopted during lockdown, but there are still hundreds looking for a forever home.
Like much of Sydney, RSPCA NSW's shelters closed to the public during lockdown. Instead, the animal-rescue centres launched a completely online adoption process. But now that the Sydney has reopened, RSPCA NSW is doing the same — in excellent news for anyone who'd like to help a furry or feathered creature find a home.
From today, Tuesday, October 26, centres across the state are reopening to the public — as long as you've been double-vaccinated. While more of us are still working from home and practising social distancing (and increasingly wanting a four-legged friend as a comforting companion), the RSPCA is encouraging Australians to adopt. So, if you've been thinking about adding a pet to your fam (and have considered it thoroughly), now might just be the time.
The online adoption form is still a part of the process, however, and it's recommended that you search the RSPCA NSW website for available animals as your first step. From there, you're asked to still fill out the online form, and then wait to be contacted by RSPCA staff, who'll book in a meet-and-greet appointment for you and your possible bundle of fluff at the shelter.

Across NSW, there are hundreds of animals that need a new home full of love and pats. There's more to pet adoption — and to foster care, if that's the route that'll best work for you — than overdosing on cuteness, of course. Making the commitment to care for an animal is serious business. For further information, read RSPCA's FAQs.
