Adopt a Pet

How to adopt a cat or kitten.

Adoption fees for our kittens up to 12 months of age is $190, and $125 for cats over 12 months.  All of the cats are desexed, vaccinated, micro chipped, tested for Feline Aids/Leukaemia, flea treated monthly and wormed every 3 months. Yes cats have to be registered with the council and council law also states cat owners must keep their cat confined to their yard at all times.  

The best way to go about adopting a cat is to pop into the shelter and speak with the cattery supervisor. If you have an idea of the type of cat you are interested in, they will be able to point you in the direction of a particular cat with those certain traits/personality etc.

Come on down and visit the cats and have a chat with the cattery staff.  If you are renting you will need to bring a copy of your leasing agreement showing that you have permission to have a pet or pets.  Also you need to bring a suitable cat carrier to safely transport the cat.

How to adopt a dog or puppy

The adoption fee for all our dogs and puppies is currently $280. All PAA dogs are  vet checked, de-sexed, microchipped, vaccinated and heartworm tested, saving you well over $400 in vet costs.  The dogs are treated with a heartworm preventative every month and  for intestinal worms every three months.

If you are renting you will need to bring a copy of your leasing agreement showing that you have permission to have a pet or pets.

To enquire about adopting a dog or puppy you can call us on 3284 1927, email us or pop into the shelter and speak with the kennel supervisor.  If you are interested in a dog or puppy that is in foster care then email 

The kennel supervisor will talk to you about your family situation and lifestyle and will work with you to match you with a dog or puppy which is a good fit for you and your family. We will need to know about your housing situation, the type of fences you have, and what other animals live with you.  We recommend that all the family including existing pets, are involved in the decision to adopt. If you are in a rental property you will need to get a letter from your landlord or agent giving permission for you to have a dog on the premises.  If you are in public or community housing you will also need a letter of approval to have a dog.  All dogs must be registered with the council.  Come on down to the shelter, have a look at the dogs we have available and have a chat with our friendly staff.

We hope you understand that the welfare of the animals is our first priority.  PAA reserves the right to refuse an adoption if we do not think it is in the best interests of the animal.

Please note that the actual selection of your new forever pet and adoption paperwork can take considerable time. Please allow plenty of time.  We suggest you arrive 2 hours prior to closing time.
