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

Bluey and Jarvis 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 – Bluey

Bluey is a beautifully natured dog whose previous owner sadly passed away. Because Bluey had no one to care for him he was brought into our care. Now he is ready to find a new family to become a loving lifelong companion.

Bluey was loved and trained in his previous life, and he has a range of skills. He can sit, shake, stay, fetch and he will give and leave objects on cue. He loves a good play with a tennis ball and will happily play and play with you.

He is friendly and confident in many settings; he can easily ignore dogs who have less dog-to-dog skills that he possesses.

In the shelter kennels, Bluey presents as vocal; however, once you get him out into the yards, you’ll see he’s just keen to be out and away from the shelter environment with his person. In that one-on-one space, you will discover a friendly, engaging and confident boy.

We want to see Bluey with a loving person who will treat him like the loving companion he is. Come on down and meet Bluey today.


Jarvis is ready to be his own man.

Rabbit of the Week – Jarvis

Jarvis is a curious rabbit who came into the shelter with his brother Stark. We made the decision not to adopt the brothers out as a pair as they were not getting along, which is common for brothers. However, since being separated from each other, Jarvis has come out of his shell. He started to explore around his enclosure more and enjoys discovering new toys.

Jarvis is a friendly rabbit who likes to be picked up and held. Jarvis has always lived as an indoor rabbit and therefore we recommend that be kept as indoor rabbit with a family who will give him lots of attention and socialisation. He could also possibly live with other desexed female rabbits.

Rabbits are fantastic pets to own as they are incredibly smart, and they can be easy to teach. They can be trained to perform tricks, they can be trained to walk on a lead, and they can be litter trained too. Rabbits like Jarvis can bring lots of joy and entertainment to your life and can make wonderful companions to you.

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