The 12 strays of Christmas
PETS are a favourite Christmas present for young families and couples looking to welcome a new soul into their home.
But before you knock on the door of a breeder, think about how you can bring new joy into your home and save a life at the same time. There are hundreds of animals in shelters who would love nothing better than to cuddle up with you on a cold night and offer you their companionship.
Quite simply, you can create a Christmas miracle.
The RSPCA shelter in Malaga has 292 animals in its care, including some in community foster care. On this page are 12 terrific adoption options – our 12 Strays of Christmas.
This year alone, it has adopted 905 animals in need of a loving home.
“Animals who require rehabilitation can spend anywhere from eight weeks to several months or much longer in our care,” said Alex Nebigin, the media and communications co-ordinator for RSPCA WA. “No matter how long it takes, RSPCA WA will explore all medical and behavioural avenues to ensure animals in our care are given the best chance of finding loving new homes.”
People who aren’t in a position to adopt a new pet, but want to help a homeless animal can support RSPCA’s Guardian Angel Appeal. Visit the Guardian Angel website to be matched with an animal in care at the RSPCA.
Call the adoptions team on (08) 9209 9300 or drop in to the Animal Care Centre in Malaga, which is open 10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.
