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

Pepper and Lucia 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: Pepper

Meet Pepper!

Pepper is a sweet, wiggly and active kelpie girl with a winning smile and a heart of gold.

Pepper is a very loving and sweet girl. She needs a family that would let her snuggle up inside and feel like she belongs. This three-year-old kelpie is loyal and has a heart big enough to love you forever. She is keen to please, loves to learn new tricks and would thrive with plenty of training and attention.

Pepper loves being active too. Her favourite thing to do is go for a long walk, and can’t wait for plenty of adventures with her new owner.

Ideally, Pepper would live somewhere she can play outside and chillax inside. She would be happiest in a big yard, with plenty of room to play fetch and very secure fences to make she doesn’t go on any solo adventures.

If you’re looking for a loyal best friend with plenty of love and energy, look no further! Pepper is your girl!

Lucia has an active side (after cuddles, of course).

Cat of the week: Lucia

Say hello to Lucia!

Lucia (pronounced Loo-sha) is a purr-fect companion cat looking for the best of both worlds.

Don’t underestimate this ball of multicoloured fluff as she spends the day laying around, dozing off and stretching out in a big patch of sun. This pretty kitty is a ball of energy when she wants to be. She loves to play, pounce around and take down any cat wand wiggling in her sight!

Lucia loves to play tricks, often laying with her head peeking out of her hidey-hole, as if there’s nothing that could make her move, but watch out for when this playful girl wakes up!

Lucia is looking for a home where she is the centre of attention. She has a big personality and wants to be her owner’s one and only. She is a sweet, loving girl with lots of snuggles to give and would love to curl up and keep her new best friend to be warm as the weather gets cold.

As she is six years old, she is past her kitten stage and ready to settle down in a quiet home without any young kids or other pets.

Lucia has lots of love to give and is looking forward to finally meeting her forever family.

Paw note: Last week’s pets, Murphy and Heizi, are still looking for their forever homes!
