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

Jerry, Marshmallow and Bubblegum 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 – Jerry

Jerry is a lovely older gentleman who has plenty of years and love to give to a fortunate family. Jerry loves to go out on his daily walks with volunteers and particularly enjoys playing games with toys. He has lovely manners with people and has some good foundational basic training.

Jerry can be quite an active dog but also loves just to chill out and hang with his people. In his new home, Jerry would be happy to be the only dog in the household. But he could also be accepting of a friendly female dog companion.

Jerry’s new home must have secure fencing to ensure he can be kept safe and happy in his new living space. This handsome guy will suit a family with older children. However, all interactions between children and dogs should be actively monitored.

If you have space in your home and heart to welcome Jerry into your family, make sure you speak with our team.

Rabbits of the Week – Marshmallow & Bubblegum

Marshmallow and Bubblegum are a bonded pair of rabbits looking to find their forever home! They are inquisitive and interested in meeting new people but still need to build up a little bit of confidence.

Marshmallow is the quieter bunny of the pair but with her sister’s help she’ll make a lovely companion for the right family. Marshmallow and Bubblegum are looking for a dedicated family willing to give them time and patience to settle in, as well as a whole lot of love for the rest of their lives.

This duo will need a large indoor or outdoor enclosure already set up and our team will need to see photos before their adoption. The bunnies will love lots of interactions throughout the day and plenty of enrichment to help keep them happy and healthy.

Marshmallow and Bubblegum could live with older sensible children, but slow interactions are necessary to help make sure they are comfortable and settle in.

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