The redevelopment of RSPCA Victoria’s Animal Care Centre has launched a new era for animal welfare. Some
of the new features to the new site include indoor training facilities,
upgraded vet clinic and hospital, retail, indoor pet adoption areas,
expanded grooming services and cafe. This was possible due to the kindness of four
generous bequestors who specifically wished to rebuild this facility.
If you're looking to adopt a pet, there are lots
of dogs, cats, rabbits
and guinea pigs waiting to find
loving new homes
at RSPCA Burwood East.
Our animals are available for adoption now - they're ready when you are! >Learn more
