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 behavioral enrichment and are matched with other animals if possible, for company and/or playtime.
Our behavioral assessors are qualified and 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.
Experienced, knowledgeable and caring staff.
Dog exercise yards – communal or separate.
Plenty of attention and love.
We can cater for your dog’s individual requirements, including dietary or medication needs.
The Launceston Adoption and Retail Centre is our one stop shop for all your pets’ needs.
We stock Hills Science Diet, Kong products and a wide range of enrichment toys to keep your pets engaged and occupied.
We have animals available for adoption.
This centre offers a touchpoint for Northern Tasmanians who seek advice on a wide range of topics related to animal welfare.
Our resident house cat, Noddy, will greet you at the door and usher you in to meet the adoptees.
All our animals are vaccinated and de-sexed, all they need are safe homes and kind people, to help them re-settle.
Salamanca Puppy Parking
(in conjunction with 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 market-goers. 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
