Launceston Animal Care Centre

Our three Animal Care Centres provide care and assistance to surrendered, neglected, unwanted, sick or injured animals. Each year we see an average of 5,000 animals come through our doors. We help all creatures great and small including; dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, horses, pigs, goats, sheep, cattle and even alpacas! All animals are given medical and behavioural assessments, provided with any veterinary care or behavioural rehabilitation they need before becoming available for adoption. Our staff take the time to get to know each animal so that we can find the most suitable loving homes for them. All animals available for adoption are advertised on

Animals available for adoption are:
• Vet checked
• Behaviour assessed
• Microchipped
• Desexed
• Treated for worms and fleas
• Vaccinated (minimum initial vaccination)
