Port Macquarie Animal Shelter

Our Animal Shelter is a refuge for lost, stray and abandoned animals. We primarily accept cats and dogs but we've also helped to reunite livestock with their owners too.

From 1 November 2020, the RSPCA will cease to manage the shelter, and we've put new processes in place, and employed new staff as we commence the management of the shelter. We will continue to work with the RSPCA Port Macquarie, along with other animal welfare groups, including Port Macquarie Animal Welfare Society, to re-home animals.
