Sydney Dogs & Cats Home Is Waiving Adoption Fees on Large and Medium Dogs to Help Clear Its Shelter

Welcome a new barking BFF into your home without paying an adoption fee.

Because you're reading this, we know you're not someone who received a pet for Christmas, only to decide it wasn't for you. We know you're one of the good folks. You're probably wishing that you did receive a loveable animal as a gift, even if you already have one — or several — that you adore.

We understand your yearning, and so does the Sydney Dogs & Cats Home. And, while it references two types of pet in its name, it's currently trying to find permanent homes for the canines in its shelter, which is at capacity. So, to help encourage you to add some more wagging tails to your life, it's lowering its adoption fees — and completely waiving them in some instances.

If you're keen on having a small dog for company, you'll find your adoption fee halved. For large and medium dogs, though, there's no adoption fee at all. Announced on Monday, July 11, the reduced and waived fees are in place for a week — and while you can't put a price on the happiness a new furry, four-legged friend will bring, it's hoped that the move will encourage people who have been thinking about adding a pet to their fam (and have considered it thoroughly) to make the commitment.

Whichever size dog fits your life, all animals that find loving human companions via Sydney Dogs & Cats Home come vet checked, vaccinated and microchipped, as well as desexed and treated for fleas and worms.

Sydneysiders eager to give a woofer a new home full of love and pats can currently view which dogs are up for adoption via the organisation's website. Then, if you see one that captures your heart, you can submit an enquiry online. After that, you'll hear back from the Sydney Dogs & Cats Home's team about progressing the adoption.

There's more to welcoming an animal into your life than overdosing on cuteness, of course, as making the commitment to care for an animal is serious business.

For more information about Sydney Dogs & Cats Home and its adoptions — or to view dogs available to new homes, and make an enquiry — visit the organisation's website.
