The Devonport Animal Care Centre
RSPCA Tasmania has a dedicated Animal Care Centre, in Devonport, providing care and assistance to surrendered, neglected, sick or injured animals.
Coming to a shelter can be a very stressful and frightening experience for most animals and our staff do everything they can to make the animals that come to us as comfortable and relaxed as possible while we find them a suitable, loving forever home.
All our animals receive exercise and behavioural enrichment and are matched with other animals if possible, for company and/or playtime.
Our behavioural assessors are experienced and ensure that each animal is assessed for their individual temperament and requirements, both while in our care and to ensure we match them with the best possible new homes.
Salamanca Puppy Parking
(in conjunction with 7HO FM and City of Hobart)
We offer a doggy day care service at Hobart’s famous Salamanca Market.
RSPCA Tasmania “doggy-sits” any dogs that are walked to Salamanca Market on Saturday mornings by marketgoers.
Since January 2018 RSPCA staff have set up a Puppy Parking facility every Saturday to look after these dogs as their owners peruse the Salamanca wares. Not only is this service of great comfort to dog owning market goers, but it maintains a great relationship for the RSPCA in the south of the Tasmania.
9am – 1pm every Saturday
