Redland Snapshot – Wednesday 20 May

Redlands Animal Shelter – Looking for a friend for life?

The RSPCA can no longer take our unclaimed and abandoned animals so council is adopting them out ourselves.

Visit our webpage to see our gorgeous animals currently available. Then drop in to the animal shelter at 264 South St, Thornlands for a meet and greet and to finalise arrangements. You can also follow us on Facebook for regular updates.

All animals are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested and have had a full health assessment along with flea and worm prevention (unless there is a medical reason not to). Animal adoption fees are set to cover these costs.

For more information call 3829 8663.
