All SA shelters closed this Sunday for Million Paws Walk!

This Sunday, May 19, our Lonsdale, Whyalla and Port Lincoln shelters will be CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC as our staff attend our huge Million Paws Walk event. All three shelters will reopen as usual for adoptions and surrenders on Monday, May 20. We hope to see you at Million Paws Walk!


Choose the adoption option and help a cat in need

Owning a cat is incredibly rewarding. Cat and kittens are naturally inquisitive and affectionate animals that make wonderful pets.

By adopting a cat or kitten from RSPCA, you’re giving an animal in need a second chance at life. And your new furry best friend will reward you with devotion, unconditional love and joy.

As an added benefit, all cats and kittens available for adoption from RSPCA South Australia are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and vet checked – helping you be a responsible pet owner right from day one.

As with all pets, a degree of responsibility is associated with cat ownership. Please weigh up the factors below carefully when making the decision to become a pet owner.

Before adopting a cat, ask yourself:
  • Am I over 18?
  • Am I in a financial position to meet the ongoing costs of caring for a cat?
  • Do I have an environment to ensure a cat is safe and secure at all times?
  • Does my current lifestyle allow me to spend quality time with a cat?
  • Am I committed to care for a cat its whole life?
What will you need for your cat?
  • Collar and ID tag
  • Water and food bowls
  • Kitten, adult or senior cat food (we recommend Hill’s Pet Nutrition)
  • Litter tray, litter and scooper
  • Comfortable bedding
  • Basket
  • Scratching post
  • Toys and balls for physical stimulation
  • Grooming and cleaning products
  • Regular worming and flea control products

All of these items can be purchased at our shelters, with sale proceeds helping animals in need.
