RSPCA Victoria’s “clear the shelter” campaign later this month will see adoption prices slashed statewide, including at Sebastopol’s soon-to-close Pets Place. 

The adoption drive will also be held at the RSPCA’s Gillies Street centre.

Pets Place is currently home to 13 cats, three dogs and several rabbits. 

The adoption centre aims to rehome all animals in its care before the store closes and the pets are transferred on August 31. 

RSPCA pet care advisor Leia Ellery hopes to see their longest-serving resident, two-year-old kelpie cross Batdog, to a see home inside the month.

Batdog has been in RSPCA shelters for three months. 

“He’s a beautiful young kelpie who just needed a lot of training and he’s an animal that I would say has benefited from being with us for a bit longer,” Ms Ellery said. 

“He came in being a little bit boisterous and now for the right people he’ll sit, he’ll drop, he’ll roll over.”

Between Friday, July 21 and Sunday, July 23 adoption fees will be dropped to $50 for dogs, $100 for puppies, $30 for cats and $50 for kittens at RSPCA centres statewide, including the Gillies Street centre.

Rabbits and guinea pigs’ feels will be $30. Dogs and cats older than 10 years will have no fee.

Pets Place is at 27 Albert Street, Sebastopol.
