Paw-fect opportunity to adopt your next pet

Published on 01 August 2022


Dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are getting ready to go to their potential ‘forever homes’ as part of an open day event this August.

The Glenelg Shire Animal Welfare Centre, in partnership with Warrnambool RSPCA, are hosting an Adoption and Open Day on Saturday 27 August 2022 from 10am to 2pm, at the Darts Road facility in North Portland.

The event aims to let community members learn more about the Animal Welfare Centre and its services, as well as meeting some of the animals ready for adoption.

“As part of the Open Day, visitors can meet the amazing staff and volunteers who care for the animals at our Centre. It’s also a great chance to learn more about how the Centre operates, and our partnership with RSPCA Warrnambool,” said Glenelg Shire Animal Welfare Centre Team Leader Sharon Allen.

“If you’re thinking about adopting or fostering a dog or cat into your family, or perhaps you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, then the open day is a wonderful opportunity to come and have a tour of the Centre, pat some dogs or cuddle some kittens and possibly add to your family.

“All dogs and cats adopted are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, treated for worms and fleas and registered at the time of adoption.”

“We look forward to welcoming the community to the Centre this August.”

The Glenelg Shire Animal Welfare Centre provides a temporary home for lost, stray, surrendered and seized animals. Importantly, the Centre helps to find new forever homes for animals in partnership with RSPCA Victoria’s Warrnambool Shelter.
