Meet our lovable pets of the week looking for forever homes at the RSPCA ACT Shelter!

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

Dog of the Week: Sadie

Meet Sadie, a gorgeous young Kelpie looking for an active owner who can match her incredible athleticism. She is no lounge lizard and will keep you on your toes and on top of your fitness goals!

Sadie has seen very little of the world, so she is close to a blank canvas at this stage, but with her intelligence and willingness to learn, this beautiful girl could achieve just about anything you put your mind to.

On top of being as sweet as pie, she is a real social butterfly and enjoys the company of her people. Sadie could also do well as a second dog to help expend her boundless energy and, of course, to have an additional set of paws for a good game of chasies.

Sadie would suit an owner who is experienced and prepared for the needs of owning a working breed, who could be a muster dog extraordinaire, depending on your vision for her.

Cat of the Week: Illidan

Illidan is a soft-natured sweetie who absolutely adores being around people. She will, without fail, always approach you for pats, love and cuddles. She, of course, enjoys any pat but especially likes little baby scratches behind her ears and under her chin.

Though she is very content with scratches, it’s not quite the same story with stress. She has a history of urinary tract infections as a result of major stressors, and to prevent this from recurring, she will need a calm place to call home. Her ideal home would be as an only cat where she can snooze, play and get lots of love from her humans.

Illidan is on a diet of RC Urinary S/O, which helps manage her urinary issues, and (thankfully) she loves it. Illidan would make the perfect cuddle companion, and besides her simple diet and plenty of scratches, she won’t ask much in return for her love.

If you want to meet this lovely lady, come down to RSPCA ACT today and say hi.
