THE RSPCA in Orange is hoping to clear its shelter on Friday, Saturday and Sunday by cutting the price of adoptions down to $29.
Shelter coordinator T'mielle Bunt said some of the shelter's animals came from shelters that had to be evacuated during the bushfires.
"We have a full shelter, we have 16 dogs currently, a rooster, a guinea pig and quite a lot of cats," Miss Burns said.
"We do have more getting vet checked in the next few days.
"We are usually busy this time of year with the breeding season for cats.
"With the bushfires we had to relocate animals, if another shelter is full we bring them all here to give them a home."
Miss Blunt encouraged people to adopt a pet.
"It's really worthwhile, not just for the dog bit for you, it helps you mentally and physically, it really benefits a person," she added.
"It helps them find a new home, especially if they've had a rough start to life."
Miss Bunt said the animals ranged from puppies and kittens through to mature animals that were aged about eight years.
She said all animals were temperament tested, vet checked, wormed, flea treated, desexed and microchipped.
"You know what you are going to get," she said.
