THERE’S no bet­ter time to visit the ken­nels at Coffs Har­bour RSPCA shel­ters and find the per­fect dog for you.

RSPCA is aim­ing to find homes for adult dogs with $99 adop­tion fees for dogs aged six months and over af­ter a busy start to the new year left the shel­ter bust­ing with dogs ready for their for­ever homes.

“Coffs Har­bour shel­ter cur­rently has plenty of beau­ti­ful dogs in care,” RSPCA NSW se­nior man­ager El­iza Walker said.

“They range in breed, age and colour and most are medium to large in size.

“Any­one who is look­ing to adopt a new ca­nine com­pan­ion must take a look at the va­ri­ety of lovely dogs cur­rently avail­able ei­ther by com­ing in for a visit or by vis­it­ing adop­tapet .com.au.

Nor­mal adop­tion pro­ce­dures will ap­ply, in­clud­ing de­sex­ing, mi­crochip­ping, vacci- na­tions, vet­eri­nary checks and be­havioural pro­ce­dures.

There will also be a one on one with prospec­tive new adop­tive par­ents to en­sure the an­i­mals go to a suit­able home.

“The fo­cus is on find­ing as many great homes as we can for these spe­cial dogs that re­ally de­serve a lov­ing sec­ond chance at life.

“All avail­able re­search con­firms that price at an­i­mal ac­qui­si­tion has no in­flu­ence on long-term place­ment and wel­fare out­comes and we’re com­mit­ted to mak­ing sure all our an­i­mals go to per­fectly matched fam­i­lies.”
