A rescue animal may be your purr-fect pet-match!
The Hawkesbury Animal Shelter is brimming with happy, healthy pets just waiting for you to take them home.
When you adopt your pet from the Shelter you are adopting an animal which has been health checked, desexed, vaccinated and often, wormed and treated for fleas. They have also been assessed for rehoming.
If you think a rescue dog or cat is for you, please visit the Hawkesbury Animal Shelter’s gallery to view the animals they have available for you to adopt.
