RSPCA NSW's Orange shelter is hoping to start the year off with a wagging tail to find some fur-ever homes for adult dogs in their care.
From January 2-12 all available adult dogs, aged six months to eight years, will have reduced adoption fees of $199 while the 'golden oldies', aged eight years and over, will have adoption fees of $160.
Orange Shelter Manager Rita Perkons said they were all excellent dogs.
"We have so many dogs who come to the shelter through no fault of their own and are looking for their forever homes," she said.
All regular adoption procedures will apply to ensure each dog finds their perfect family. This includes desexing, microchipping, vaccinations, veterinary checks, behavioural assessments and one-on-ones with prospective adoptive parents and future fur-siblings.
"Every dog here is different," Ms Perkons said.
"They have unique personalities, needs, energy levels and we want to ensure that they make a perfect addition to the right family."
Shaun, a 2-and-a-half-year-old Cattle Dog crossbred is looking for an active family. 3-year-old Rocky, a Cattle Dog and Mastiff crossbreed, is looking for a family who will continue with his training. Boss-Man, a 1 year and 7-month-old Mastiff crossbreed is looking for a family with a big backyard for him to play in.
Shaun, Rocky and Boss-Man have been in shelter care for over 100 days each, patiently waiting for their perfect paw-rents.
