Take-Me-Home Tuesday; Major, Male, Bull Arab


Attention chaps! There's a Major in your presence! A four legged, furry and happy to please Major to be exact.

I came into the Sydney Shelter full of beans and absolutely loved meeting all the other dogs here. I guess I am a rather excitable boy, I just want to run and play with everyone. Hopefully my new family will have just as much energy, and can take me out on walks every day. I'll probably need to go home to a family that has had dogs before, just so we both know what to expect.

I love food! Anytime any of the staff here want me to learn anything, they hold up a treat for me and I'm more than happy to oblige. I'll also do anything for a scratch behind the ear. I love playing with toys, they keep me entertained when I have to be by myself. I like the ones that make me think and make me try to figure out where the treat is. I like to play games with my family too! A game of fetch, find or tug-of-war is so much fun.

If you need a Major in your life, then you can find and adopt me from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

Caturday; Jazz, Female, Domestic Short Hair Cross


Everyone needs the sweet sweet sounds of Jazz in their lives, but this time, in cat form! That's me, Jazz!

Hi, I'm Jazz, and I've been at the Sydney Shelter for a little while now, and I can't wait to find my furever home. I can be a little quiet when we first meet, but as soon as I'm settled in, I'll be purring some sweet tunes. I would prefer a quieter, smooth house, so would need a more mature and settled family.

I love sleeping in my hidey hole in the shelter, it makes me feel safe, and I love using my scratching post as well. I don't ask for much, just a few scratches here, a few pats there, and a loving family to call my own.

If you need a little Jazz in your house, then you can find and adopt me from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

Friday Find-A-Friend; Quinn, Male, Mastiff Cross


Hi there! The name's Quinn, and I'm looking for a loving family to call my own.

When most people see me they just say "Wow! Who's a big boy?", I don't know if they are talking about my height, or my big heart? I am just a slobbery mess of love, hugs and kisses when it comes to my humans. I know jumping up and kissing isn't always appropriate, so will need someone to teach me a few manners.

I am super smart though! I've learnt how to sit and... look adorable? Well, I only know how to sit, but I absolutely love learning and want to learn plenty more manners. I would love a family with older kids that already know how to handle big dogs. If you have another dog at home, great! I would love a play mate, let's setup a play date first to make sure we can get along.

If you think you can handle a whole lot of love, then you can find and adopt me from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

Take-Me-Home Tuesday; Gypsy, Female, Mastiff Cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier


Hmmm... I'm taking a look into my crystal ball and I see an awesome dog in your future. That dog... is ME! My name's Gypsy and I'm looking for my fur-ever home.

I'm a very active girl, that likes to run, jump, play and then run some more. I will need a family that can keep up with me and have the time to walk me one to two times a day. I sometimes get a little carried away with all the running, so working and training together would be a great idea.

I absolutely love my toys, they keep me entertained if I ever need to be home alone. Crystal balls aside, I love playing tug a war, fetch (although I'm still learning the bring back part) and treat balls to get my brain ticking.

As I'm a little bit big and strong, I can't go home to a house with small kids, cats or pocket pets. If you already have another dog, we will need to meet, as all this energy can be overwhelming to some.

If you want to see a Gypsy in your future, then you can find and adopt me from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

Caturday; Bundy, Male, Domestic Short Hair Cross


Meow Meow MEOW! Now that I've woken you up from your Saturday morning slumber... Hi! My name is Bundy.

I came into the shelter a bit of a scaredy cat (sorry, couldn't help myself), but the lovely staff at the shelter have helped me settle in and I'm definitely a confident feline now. I absolutely adore pats, scratches and lots of love; I just need to find a family that wants the same thing.

I definitely like sitting up on my high cat scratching post. I like to survey the area, and make sure everyone is safe from danger. If a fly is buzzing around down there, don't worry, I'll get it for you! I haven't really found a toy I'm interested in playing with, although the staff here keep on trying.

If you need another Saturday morning wake up call, you can find me at the RSPCA Hunter Region (Rutherford) Shelter in Rutherford; 6-10 Burlington Place, Rutherford Maitland 2320, (02) 4939 1555

Friday Find-A-Friend; Sausage, Male, Dachshund Cross


Sausage is the name and being friendly is the game!

I am a pretty easy going, happy and sweet boy who loves people and affection. I came to the shelter as a stray and am now looking for my fur-ever home.

Guess what, I already know how to sit! But I will definitely benefit from ongoing obedience training to keep my manners in check - I just love to learn more. I would enjoy having another friendly dog in my new home but I'd really like to meet them first, just to be sure we can be buddies. Due to my lovely nature, I would enjoy a life where I'm included as part of the family and included in daily activities. Dogs are social animals and as long as I'm exercised daily and receive mental stimulation - I will also love just lounging about with you.

I'm okay with cats but should be supervised around them, just in case they tickle my fancy. I'm a bit curious about pockets pets like rabbits and guinea pigs at the shelter so for this reason I cannot go to a home with them. My yard must have secure 5ft fencing with no holes or gaps to keep me safe for the times I'm outside.

If you need to know more and want to adopt me from the RSPCA Hunter Shelter in Rutherford; 6-10 Burlington Place, Rutherford, 2320, (02) 4939 1555

Take-Me-Home Tuesday; Richie, Male, Australian Cattledog


Do you feel like your life is a little poor without a four-legged companion? Richie can sort that out for you!

My name's Richie and I'm a fun loving guy looking for an equally fun loving family. I really love people, and show this through hugs, kisses and lots of tail wagging. I have plenty of energy, so would need a family that could keep up with me. That isn't to say I don't like snuggling in the night time while we watch TV together, I just need a walk first to burn up all this energy.

I'm also super smart (if I do say so myself) and I pick up training quickly. I hope my family can teach me more, as I love nothing more than working together. I know some humans have to work during the day, so I'm hoping you either have plenty of toys, or have another fluffy friend for me to play with.

If you need a fluffy fellow to brighten up your lives, then you can find and adopt me from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

Trade Tricks for Treats at the RSPCA


The RSPCA Sydney Shelter is currently experiencing a shortage of toys and treats for the animals in its care. With Halloween just around the corner, the RSPCA hopes their annual ‘Tricks for Treats’ initiative will encourage the public to donate pet-friendly treats and toys in the lead up to 31 October.

“Treats are a very important part of our positive reinforcement training methods with the animals,” said RSPCA Sydney Shelter Manager Adam Farrugia. “Shelter staff and volunteers practice obedience training with the animals on a daily basis, so treats are consumed quickly.”

While treats are used as a reward system for training, toys provide comfort and stimulation for animals staying in an unfamiliar environment. 

“Animals up for adoption at the RSPCA stay with us as long as it takes for them to find a new home,” said Mr Farrugia. “This means some animals are with us for quite a while, so we like to ensure they’re provided with toys that offer enrichment and comfort while they’re here.”

All donated dog and cat items can be dropped off at the RSPCA Sydney Shelter, 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona between 9.00am and 7.30pm. Treats and toys can also be purchased directly from the Shelter’s retail store (closed Wednesdays) and the RSPCA Care Centre at Rouse Hill Town Centre. Other shelters in NSW will also be accepting gifts for their animals.

Caturday; Molly, Female, Domestic Short Hair


Good golly Miss Molly! That's what everyone says when they see me, but you can just call me Molly :)

I'm a fairly quiet little girl and  I'm looking for a quiet, mature home to call my own. I enjoy spending time with my family, and while I'm not necessarily a lap cat, I like sleeping on the end of the bed at night. If you are looking for me, just call out my name, and I normally respond with a soft meow just to let you know I am safe.

I tend to get a little jumpy around loud noises and can be really timid of other cats, so would prefer a quiet house all too myself. Don't worry though, I can purr and cuddle just as much as two cats. I would also like a few toys, as I'm still a kitten and like kitteny things like string and toy balls.

If you need a sweet little kitten to warm your heart, then you can find and adopt me from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

Friday Find-A-Friend; Dom, Male, Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross


Rooof! The name's Dom, and I'm looking for a fun and adventurous family to call my own.

I've been at the shelter for a little while and desperately want to find a family to play with, rumble with and most importantly, love. I absolutely adore people, and want to spend as much time with you as possible. We could go out exploring the world, either in the wilderness, or even to the local dog park.

If I do have to be left alone, I would prefer to live with another friendly dog to play with. We will need to be formally introduced at the shelter to make sure we get along of course. I can't live with cats or pocket pets or kids under 8, I can play a little rough, and I think they get a little scared of me.

If you need an adventuring companion, then you can find and adopt me from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

RSPCA NSW Congratulates Top Vet!


The RSPCA Broken Hill Clinic and Shelter are a small but dedicated staff team who work tirelessly in one of the remotest Vet Clinics in not only the country - but perhaps the world. One of these, Sharon Murphy, completed her Certificate IV in Animal Studies through the Animal Industries Resource Centre (AIRC) in 2011. At her graduation ceremony last month she was honoured to receive the NSW Student of the Year prize, which is awarded to exemplary students who display professionalism in attitude, skills and knowledge, and who act as a role model to other students. Sharon has certainly been an asset to our team through her willingness to mentor two other nurses who are currently completing their training.

Sharon is a very worthy winner and has certainly epitomised the values that the AIRC look for in Student of the Year. Congratulations Sharon!

The RSPCA Fears A Rise In Heat Stroke Victims



RSPCA NSW pleads with animal owners to not leave pets in hot cars this summer!

In the last week RSPCA NSW has received seven complaints about dogs found in hot cars. RSPCA NSW is once again reminding pet owners not to leave any animal unattended in vehicles, especially as the weather gets warmer.

“Many people are not aware that if you leave your dog unattended in the car, even with windows down and in the shade, there’s still a high risk of heat stroke and potentially suffering a worse fate,” said RSPCA NSW Chief Inspector David OShannessy. “Its forecast to be a sizzling summer so we hope that people can get the message before it gets hotter and more dogs suffer or die.”

It only takes six minutes for an animal to die from heat stroke. Cars parked in the sun can reach temperatures in excess of 80° Celsius, and can remain dangerously hot even if the windows are open. A dog cannot sweat in these conditions and panting increases the heat in the car.

“Cars left stationary in the sun become ovens. Ute trays also become extremely hot, so dogs can suffer a similar fate,” said Chief Inspector OShannessy. “If a dog is found suffering as a result of being left in a car, the maximum penalty is $5,500 and six-month in prison and if a dog dies from being left in a car, the owner can receive a $22,000 fine and a two-year prison sentence.”

As appealing as it is to take the family pet on outings, if there’s no choice but to leave the pet in the car then choose the better option of leaving them at home with shade and plenty of water.

Members of the public are urged to contact local police or RSPCA NSW on 1300 CRUELTY (1300 278 3589) if they see a stressed animal left in a car.

Take-Me-Home Tuesday; Jack, Male, Bull Terrier Cross


Prepare yourself, for you are about the meet... Jackspectacular! Or you can call me Jack for short, that works too.

I am the fun, fantastic and the full of beans Jack, and I'm looking for an equally awesome family to call my own. I have all this energy and I want to use it by frolicking through a park, playing fetch in the backyard and loving my family.

I am definitely still a young dog, and still learning about the world and how to behave in public. I know how to sit, but I know there is heaps more to learn, so will need a family that is willing to help me learn.

I love playing with other dogs at the shelter, so if you have a fluffy fellow at home, we can meet at the shelter and see if we will be friends. Speaking of home, I hope there are plenty of toys there, I love to play tug of war with the animal attendants here at the shelter.

If you are searching for a fluffy ball of energy, then look no further! You can find and adopt me from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

Caturday; Alfie, Male, Domestic Short Hair


Hello there my Caturday morning friends! My name's Alfie, and it's an absolute pleasure to meet you.

I'm a fine looking feline, looking for a family to call my own. Don't let my calm demeanor fool you, I absolutely adore playing! I could play with a toy mouse, a ball, a sparkly jumpy fuzzy toy... gosh I could even enjoy playing with a piece of string! The best games are, of course, when I play with my hooman and we play chase the string. Ahh good times!

I can get a little carried away playing, and can frighten the little ones, so no small kids can be in your family. I do like other cats, but we need to get to know each other and figure out our boundaries, so introduce as slowly.

I also love love love my coat and fur, so will need someone that is willing to brush me regularly. You can leave the licking part up to me of course!

Playing, purring and brushing... now all I need is a you in my life. Come down and meet me at the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555

Bruiser's Best Buds; Penny, Female, Fox Terrier Cross


Oh...my...gosh! You guys! Did you see my fabulous friend Penny on television this morning?! She is almost as famous as Elle!

When Penny isn't rubbing furry elbows with the rich and famous, she is just like every other regular dog looking for her forever family and home. Penny and I get along with just about every dog, I think it's because she is such a sweetheart. She doesn't get along with cats all too well though, so a doggy only home would be best.

She is such a cuddler! She would love to go to a home where she can snuggle with her family on the couch, or spend most of her time with them. If she does have to stay home by herself, all she asks for is a few toys to keep her entertained. It's not too much to ask, is it?

If you want this famous little lady hanging out with you on your couch, then you can find and adopt Penny from the RSPCA Sydney Shelter in Yagoona; 201 Rookwood Road, Yagoona, 2199, (02) 9770 7555.

Take-Me-Home Tuesday; Hera, Female, Kelpie Cross Australian Cattledog


UPDATE: Hera got adopted Thursday 11 October 2012 - sounds like someone's heart fell for you Hera - good luck on your adventures with your new family!

Hi there! My name's Hera. Can you "Hera" that, I think that's the sound of your heart falling in love :)

I came into the shelter a little scared, but after some R&R, I'm definitely a lot more confident, and now looking for my furever family and home. We still need to get to know each other before I can completely relax, but we will get there.

I'm getting rather good at this whole training thing. I've already mastered walking on a lead and sitting; I definitely love learning, so want to work together to learn some more. With all this knowledge, I also have the energy to back it all up. I love getting out and about, so hopefully my new family are just as active and want to do daily walks and adventures on the weekends.

ANIMAL CRUELTY CHARGES – Bankstown Local Court

Photograph of cat with lice infection, and skin scrapings under a microscope showing the live lice and eggs.
 
A Greenacre woman and her daughter appeared at Bankstown Local Court for sentencing on 27 September 2012. After failing to appear at court on three separate occasions, both mother and daughter were convicted on four charges of failing to provide veterinary treatment to their cat.

On 6 June 2012, a male black cat was brought in as a stray to the RSPCA Yagoona Shelter by a member of the public. RSPCA Inspectors believed that the cat belonged to the mother and daughter at their property in Greenacre. The cat was in very poor body condition, had extensive hair loss, ringworm and lesions over its body. There were large amounts of visible louse eggs covering the majority of its body. That cat was also missing many of its teeth and the teeth remaining showed severe disease. The gums were ulcerated, infected and bleeding.

As a result of care and treatment whilst at the RSPCA, the cat gained 4.1kg in five weeks – an increase of 28% of its bodyweight.

Both women were convicted and found guilty for failing to provide vet treatment for severe dental disease, failure to provide vet treatment for lice infestation, failure to provide vet treatment for ringworm infection and failure to provide proper and sufficient food to their male cat. They were each fined $750, $83 court costs and prohibited from owning no more than one animal for two years. The two women were ordered to pay a combined total of $5,008.54 in animal care costs. Custody of the cat was awarded to the RSPCA.

ANIMAL CRUELTY OFFENCES – Penrith Local Court

 Photograph of Black Angus crossbreed with open wound on forehead from embedded chain tether.

A local Luddenham man appeared at Penrith Local Court on 27 September 2012 regarding animal cruelty offences. He pleaded guilty for two charges of animal cruelty towards his Black Angus crossbreed cow.

On 16 April 2012, RSPCA Inspectors responded to a complaint about animal cruelty at a property in Luddenham. Some cattle were located on the property tethered and without access to water. One Black Angus crossbreed cow was found lame with a scabby wound at the base of her right foot. The cow was also tethered using a chain that was embedded across her forehead.

A livestock veterinarian was called to the property and confirmed that the chain had caused two deep and open wounds on the cows head. Maggots were identified in the wounds. The leg wound was examined and locally anaesthetized to remove the flap of skin and antibiotics were administered. Her body condition was good and she was found to be four months pregnant.

RSPCA Inspectors instructed the man to ensure that if he chooses to tether his cows that he must do it in a way which does not lead to pain and suffering. He was also instructed to provide water to all animals.

The man was convicted for failure to provide veterinary treatment and failure to exercise reasonable care to his cow. He was fined $400 and ordered to pay the RSPCA’s costs of $852.86 (total $1252.86).

Happy Endings - Ruby

Ruby & Rexy square off!

Afternoon everybody! Let's start the (shorter) week with a smile with a message from a former resident who's gone from strength to strength on the outside. Ruby came to us as a surrender a year or so back and from the sounds of the letter and the look of the photos attached - he's now in good loving hands. Good luck Ruby and thank you to Belinda & Rexy.

Hi guys

Thought you might like to hear how Ruby (nee Indy) is going. We saw Ruby online at the RSPCA Yagoona shelter in March 2012, went in to see her and fell in love. Ruby was an inspectors case and had spent a few months at the Yagoona shelter. When we took her home, there were one or two staff that had to say a ‘special goodbye’ to our girl, so we thought you may like to hear how she is getting along.

We don’t know much about Ruby’s past or if she was a farm dog or suburban dog, but I can tell you she has embraced life on our small farm with gusto. The first day we brought her home she spent about an hour running laps around the house paddock (approx 1.5 acre) like a mad woman. I’m pretty sure she was saying “Are you for real?? All this is mine??!!”. And it was. For about another month. We didn’t want Rubes to be alone, but we wanted to choose the right dog that would gel well with her personality. Rubes is a little quiet/shy so we wanted another dog that was not too dominant. We saw another dog, a little male blue cattle online at Renbury Farm Shelter and decided to take Ruby down there to visit with this dog and see if the two would gel. Well they did, the rest is history, and the two are now constant pals that do pretty much everything together. Although we sometimes do take the dogs for walks up streets or into town (Camden), Ruby’s favourite thing is to go run around the paddocks at home with Rexy. She positively wiggles from head to toes as she leaps over long grass and chases rabbits (its OK...the rabbits are quite safe LOL) or just sniffs and scratches about. Occasionally she finds a little dead lizard or frog and she loves to roll and roll and roll on them for some time (oh joy!). But pretty much its the idea of the open space and being able to run at will for as long as she wants, that she seems to enjoy the most.

I have to say a very special thankyou to the staff at RSPCA NSW for doing such an wonderful wonderful job with Ruby. From the moment she got home she was polite, waited for the humans to walk through the doorway first, has absolutely terrific leash skills, she doesn’t beg or jump up or snatch treats. She is an absolute model cattle dog. Rubes is great with other dogs and travels very well in the car too although not sure if that’s something you guys taught her or she just does. She and her “brother” Rexy both often go places with me, and we have other doggy friends we visit with at times. In fact the two are so good with each other as well as with other dogs, I am thinking of doing some fostering next year for rescue groups.

Ruby is such a beautiful girl with exceptional temperament and manners, people who meet her are often surprised she is a ‘pound puppy’, and I am glad she is such a great advertisement for shelter dogs and in particular for RSPCA Yagoona. I’ve attached some pics of her at home and with her best mate Rexy. (and me oh my.....she really is a pretty girl, isn’t she!) We really were very very lucky to find such a special girl just waiting for a home. How such beautiful animals end up in shelters is totally beyond me.

Thank you guys for the awesome work you have done, and continue to do for dogs like Ruby. We may not be able to change the entire world as they say, but you guys certainly changed the world for Ruby.

Much love, and thanks,

Belinda, Ruby and Rexy
