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

Cairo and Cookie 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 – Cairo

Cairo the cat found himself at the shelter as a stray and is ready to find his new forever home. Cairo is a sweet but sensitive boy who has a lot to say. You’ll often find him meowing to anyone walks past. As well as being chatty, there’s nothing more that this boy loves than a good nap.

Cairo enjoys pats and affection from his new friends but would mostly prefer to have all four of his paws on the ground while smooching. As Cairo is FIV positive, it will be important for him to be an indoors cat only at his new home. However, he would greatly appreciate access to an enclosed and secure outdoor run.

Cairo could live with other cats in his new home, if they are also FIV positive. However, Cairo would prefer to live in a feline-only household, so no dogs, please.

This handsome boy is looking for a family that is patient and willing to understand he may need some time to settle into his new environment. Cairo will be best suited to a family with older children and a home with a quiet environment. If you might have the perfect home make sure to speak with our team.


Cookie is looking for love and a forever home! Could that be you?

Dog of the Week – Cookie

Meet Cookie! Sweet Cookie could be the perfect daily exercise buddy but would also appreciate an owner who is at home more often than not. Cookie is an active girl who would love to be included in household activities and outings such as hikes, bike rides and all other adventures.

Cookie would best suit someone who has previously had experience with her breed and willing to invest the time and energy into keeping her actively and mentally stimulated. Cookie is a social dog who could be open to meeting a friendly, playful male dog.

Enrichment activities and toys will help ensure that Cookie also stays mentally healthy as well as in good physical shape. Cookie is best suited to children over 8 years old and all family members must come and meet Cookie prior to adoption. Please remember that all interactions between children and dogs should be monitored at all times.

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