On 12 June 2018 3 seperate hearings were heard in the Burnie Magistrates Court.

A cat from Queenstown, a dog from Boat Harbour and a dog from Acacia Hills.  The RSPCA applied for ownership of the 3 animals as their owners could not be located.

All three animals were awarded into the custody of  RSPCA Tasmania and can now move on to a new and happy life.
