Meet our lovable Pets of the Week looking for forever homes at the RSPCA ACT Shelter!

Ruby and Lacey are this week’s friendly Pets of the Week! These gorgeous animals are waiting to find their perfect match. Think that could be you? Read more about them below.

Dog of the Week: Ruby

Meet Ruby,

If you’re looking for the love of your life, don’t look past this tall, dark and beautiful girl! Ruby is a mature Ridgeback cross looking for love. She takes a little time to build trust, but once she falls for you, she’s all in.

As a four-year-old dog, Ruby is the perfect age to balance play and chillax time. She loves to chase a ball, play tug-of-war and can keep herself entertained with toys.

She is very polite, receptive to training and has excellent manners when it comes to food.

Ruby is looking for a home where she’s the only dog and can enjoy the peace and quiet of a calm, child-free home.


Lacey’s an empty nester with love to spare.

Cat of the week: Lacey

Meet Lacey!

Lacey is a precious soul with so much love to give. She has recently become an empty nester as the five gorgeous kittens she raised have been adopted.

This lady is sweet, kind and caring. She is a very playful cat and will even play a little game of fetch with you and bring you her toys to show you how much she loves you.

Lacey is pretty easygoing and adaptable regarding her requirements for a forever home. She is okay with kids and other pets as long as they are a good fit.

Visit the RSPCA at 12 Kirkpatrick St, Weston, and add a new companion to your life – you won’t regret it!
