Shoalhaven Animal Shelter celebrates its second birthday as a council managed facility today (Friday).
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley congratulated staff and said the continued success of the no-kill shelter is due to the wonderful ongoing community support by locals.
"I am so proud of how the staff have adapted to the varying environments such as bush fire devastation and the COVID-19 pandemic, the Animal Shelter has flourished in its second year," Clr Findley said.
"This year the shelter has seen more than 800 adoptions, an increase of 27 per cent compared to last year.
"I encourage any community members who are looking for their next four-legged family member to look at the Shoalhaven Animal Shelter first. It is a great place to begin that search and they invite everyone to make an appointment to visit the centre in Nowra Hill."
Shoalhaven Animal Shelter reunites lost pets and livestock with owners, microchips animals, and manages the adoption of pets in need of rehoming. If you are looking to adopt a pet, you may find them here.
Shoalhaven Animal Shelter is open seven days a week.
