Because every tail deserves a happy ending…

Never Give up Hope

Possibly the best part of everything we do at the SPCA is our Happy Homings.

To see the joy on the faces of the new families and the sheer delight of the animals they adopt makes all the blood, sweat and tears worthwhile. 

Many of the animals who come through our doors have been rescued from situations of such diabolical cruelty it is hard to imagine.

Others have endured traumas such as abandonment, bereavement from a deceased and beloved owner, getting lost and finding themselves stray… their hearts beat as ours and they feel emotions just as deeply. 

Reading progress

267 days of hoping – that’s how long Ned waited at our SPCA before he found his happy ever after home.

Ned came to us as a stray in poor condition. Our vets had concerns about the pigmentation on his nose, but a specialised biopsy confirmed there was no cancer present. He just needed daily sunscreen to protect his nose and he was good to go!

Except… no one seemed to want him.

Day after day (267 to be exact!) this delightful dog waited to be adopted.

Meantime he crept into the hearts of everyone at our SPCA – from our volunteers and staff to the many concerned people who kept checking on him and sharing his adoption posts.

What a joyful day it was when Ned’s patience finally paid off and he was welcomed into a wonderful home where he is loved and thoroughly spoilt!

As an ‘only’ pet, Ned has well and truly landed with his cute little bum in the butter. This lucky boy now enjoys walks on the beach and wears a unique, tailor-made nose cap to protect his little pink nose from the sun. Thank you to Ned’s new family for choosing our special older boy to share your life.
