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

Jonathan Van Ness, Antoni, Paris and Nicole 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.

Guinea Pigs of the Week – Jonathan Van Ness and Antoni

We’re highlighting our pocket pets in conjunction with our adoption drive event this week. Meet JVN and Antoni.

Little Jonathan Van Ness and his bonded mate Antoni can’t help but bring out the best in your life; with them, all things just keep getting better!

Jonathan is the more confident of the two boys. He loves to sprawl around in the middle of the enclosure where he’s on display. You are more likely to find Antoni hidden away in his house. However, once Antoni feels settled, you will see that fabulous personality that we do.

We would hate to separate these two, so we’d love to see them adopted together. Just like their namesakes, they are best friends.

If you feel that you’d like to adopt Antoni and Jonathan Van Ness, come into the shelter, meet the boys and start the next chapter of their lives with them.

Ducks of the Week – Paris and Nicole

Paris and Nicole just want the simple life in a new home. That’s quack!

The girls came to us in need of our help. Like their namesakes (Hilton and Richie), they’re not made to rough it. They needed some serious TLC and pampering before they were ready to find their new home. They love their swimming time, and we’d love it if you had a property with a pond or a pool.

Like JVN and Antoni, Paris and Nicole are best friends, so it would be best if they could be adopted and pampered together.

If you have ever thought of adopting ducks or adding more ducks to your existing duck household, come on down and meet Paris and Nicole.

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