Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
Meet our lovable Pets of the Week looking for forever homes at the RSPCA ACT Shelter!
This week’s Pets of the Week are handsome young dog Trevor, and two beautiful chirpy lorikeets Peach and Cherry.
Dog of the Week – Trevor
When Trevor came to us he wasn’t an easy young fellow. He is one dog that’s full of attitude and is very aware of his own self importance. Looks can be deceiving for this young guy. While Trevor looks like a small-sized dog, he is actually more on the medium size!
Trevor will need a life with daily walks and plenty of exercise to ensure he’s happy and healthy. This boy is a tenacious and active young pooch, keen to meet an understanding person who will give him the time and space he needs to become a great companion.
There are a few things Trevor enjoys in his day-to-day life including walks, having his photo taken (just look at that smile) and tasty treats!
Unfortunately, Trevor’s not suitable to a home with small children. He could, however, live with older and mature teenagers who know how to respect his boundaries.
Birds of the Week – Cherry and Peach
Cherry and Peach have found themselves at the Shelter due to a change of circumstances and want to find a parrot-experienced home to call their own. Lorikeets aren’t the easiest birds to keep, so it will be important for their new family to be well informed of their needs and requirements.
This dynamic duo are loud little critters who enjoy whispering, talking and screaming their conversations to anyone who will listen. These feathery friends are the best of friends and spend their time gossiping about everyday life.
Cherry and Peach would love to have a large aviary to themselves, or even share their new space with other lorikeets (as long as slow and careful introductions are made). Lorikeets require a special diet, one they currently are on and will need to continue when they leave the Shelter and find forever homes.
This pair love to swing on their toys, shred foliage and, of course, spend time with each other. Cherry and Peach are looking for a super committed family as they could live up to 30 years!
Visit us at 12 Kirkpatrick St, Weston and add a new companion to your life – you won’t regret it!
