Animal Shelters in Melbourne

Owning a pet has so many advantages particularly for children. Developing a relationship with a pet can teach a child so much; responsibility, companionship, empathy and love.

Pet adoption in Melbourne


That said, introducing a new pet into the family is a huge decision and shouldn't be thought of lightly. If you know the time is right to find your family a new furry, you might want to take note of where go find one.
