For over 135 years, the RSPCA has been protecting and caring for animals through its shelters. But as soon

as the organisation builds a shelter, it’s full to capacity with animals that deserve a second chance at finding a

good home.

Many people avoid going to shelters because they find it too emotional. Instead, they go to pet shops or

breeders. There is also a perception that if an animal is at a shelter, there is something wrong with the animal. 

The RSPCA Care Centre at Rouse Hill is a shelter outreach facility that includes an adoption centre and

outpatient veterinary clinic. Its main aims are to rehome more animals in a welfare friendly environment and

educate the community about responsible pet ownership.

The RSPCA Care Centre Rouse Hill will be opening its doors to the public 10am, Saturday 12 December

2009. Why not come and see the future of RSPCA rehoming? 

RSPCA Care Centre is located at the Rouse Hill Town Centre, Windsor Rd, Rouse Hill, NSW.

The goals of the RSPCA Care Centre:

* Decrease euthanasia and increase adoptions 

* Promote responsible pet ownership through education 

* Provide expert advice that is accurate and in keeping with our policies

* Provide a service that is of the highest standards for both Animal Welfare and Customer Service

Integral to this project is the care and protection of animals. As the RSPCA, we are subject to scrutiny and we

must be exemplary in our commitment to animal welfare. We have created an environment where animals

come first. You will never see puppies in the window at Rouse Hill. Every animal has been transported from

our Yagoona shelter. Like all RSPCA animals, the Rouse Hill residents will be desexed, microchipped,

behaviourally tested and vet checked. We will also be providing a range of animals of different sizes and ages

(not just cute puppies and kittens), and the staff will all be RSPCA accredited. 

The products and services that RSPCA Care Centre Rouse Hill will bring to the community are:

* Animal Adoptions

* Veterinary Outpatients Clinic 

* Retail Products

* A Pet Advisory Service

* Community Education and Events
