RSPCA CARE CENTRE – A FIRST FOR AUSTRALIA! 

For many years, the RSPCA has wanted to create a new breed of adoption centre – and they’ve done it! On Friday 11

December 2009, the RSPCA Care Centre is being officially opened. 

Each year thousands of animals end up at RSPCA Shelters, and in order to rehome even more, another facility needed to

be built. Rather than build another shelter, the RSPCA designed a shelter outreach facility. Called the Care Centre, it’s

the first of its kind in Australia and includes: 


Animal Adoptions


Veterinary Outpatients Clinic 


Retail Products


A Pet Advisory Service


Community Education and Events.  

The aim of the RSPCA Care Centre is to rehome more animals in a welfare friendly environment, decrease euthanasia

rates and educate the community about responsible pet ownership. Staffed by RSPCA trained animal wellbeing

attendants and vets, Rouse Hill celebrates responsible pet ownership and represents the future of the RSPCA in NSW. 

RSPCA NSW invites the media to the official opening of the RSPCA Care Centre.  Meet the new residents, the excited

staff and the wonderful team that helped make this ambitious project a reality.


What: RSPCA Care Centre (a Shelter Outreach Facility)


Where: Rouse Hill Town Centre, Windsor Road, Rouse Hill


Official Opening: Friday 11 December, 6pm to 8pm
