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

August and Tinkerbelle 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.

Cat of the Week – August

August the Cat found himself at the shelter as a stray and is now ready to find a new forever home to call his own. This handsome boy is very sweet and oh-so affectionate. August loves to roll about in happiness when he is receiving pats and absolutely loves a good chin scratch.

This guy enjoys the quieter things in life and would prefer to live in a more relaxed home environment. August is social with children, and could potentially live with calm and sensible kids, but anyone too loud or boisterous will lead to August feeling uncomfortable.

August would love to be the only pet in his new home. He doesn’t want to have to compete against anyone else for the affection he craves. August will make a great companion for someone ready to give him all the love he desires.

This handsome boy is a ‘Twilight Adoption’ cat. August has a medical condition that will need close monitoring by his new family and a trusted veterinarian of your choosing. If you wish to enquire more about August’s medical needs, please get in touch with our team for further discussion.


Tinkerbelle is a lovely lady looking for a new home!

Dog of the Week – Tinkerbelle

Tinkerbelle the dog is a lovely girl who deserves the world. Tinkerbelle can take some time to warm up to new people, but once she knows you, be prepared for loving slobbery kisses! Tinkerbelle has had a pretty unpredictable life so far so now this darling girl would love a secure home where she can spend and enjoy the rest of her life!

Sweet Tink loves a tennis ball and enjoys her daily walks out of the shelter with our volunteers. She is a big strong girl so is looking for a physically capable owner who can continue with her regular exercise sessions. Tinkerbelle will love regular exercise adventures to keep her both happy and healthy.

Her loving forever home will need 6-foot Colourbond fencing to ensure she stays safe and secure in her new home. This lovely lady is not very fond of other dogs so would prefer to be the only canine creature in her new household!

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