Jerry is looking for love! Could this be you?

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

Jerry & Joey 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 – Jerry

Jerry was found abandoned at a vacant property and was brought to the shelter to find his forever home. Jerry holds no grudges for his past life but is looking for a loving family to call his own. After a long time waiting, Jerry hopes you could be his perfect match.

Jerry is a sweet, social and cuddly boy who loves to laze about and receive pats. He loves to play with toys, including wand toys that are bright and entertaining.

Jerry requires ongoing medication for the rest of his life due to spinal pain. While this is not debilitating, he will live a happy life as long as he continues on his medication. Jerry’s new family must be ready to monitor his health needs, keep him at a respectable weight, ensure he stays indoors, of course, and showers him with a whole lot of love.

Jerry is FIV positive, which unfortunately means he will need to be the only cat in his new home. We also believe that Jerry will be happiest and healthiest when he has no other pets around to live with.


Joey is a young boy with his whole life ahead of him.

Dog of the Week – Joey

At just six months old, Joey, the mixed breed staffy, has a whole lot of love to give. With a lifetime of happiness and joy ahead of him, sweet Joey is looking for the perfect family to settle in to. Joey is looking to become an important part of the family. He wants to be on adventures, cuddling on the couch and just enjoying life.

But Joey is young and still has a lot of things to learn. He will best suit a family with some experience with adolescent dogs. Someone willing to provide a set of rules and invest in further training. Joey is an extremely smart boy and with love and treats – he is extremely food motivated – will make the perfect companion in no time.

Joey is playful and energetic and loves to play with rope toys and tennis balls.

Joey will best suit a home with older children, backyard space and secure fencing. This lovely boy cannot wait to find his perfect match and start the rest of his life.

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