Adopt your ‘Furever Friend’ at the Epping Animal Welfare Facility

Adopt your ‘Furever Friend’ at the Epping Animal Welfare Facility

It is now easier than ever to adopt a pet locally with the launch of the Epping Animal Welfare Facility pet adoption webpage.

The Pet Adoption site, launched earlier this month, is easy to use and allows you to search for your next forever pet – dogs, cats or other pets like rabbits and guinea pigs. The site is updated daily with new listings and all pets have undergone health and temperament checks to ensure they are suitable for adoption. All pets come desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, flea and worm treated.

Epping Animal Welfare Facility is managed by the City of Whittlesea on behalf of Merri-bek and Darebin Councils.

City of Whittlesea Chief Executive Officer Craig Lloyd said the new website will help connect pets with a loving new home.

“The wellbeing of animals in our care at the facility is of utmost priority. Our aim is to reunite owners with lost pets as quickly as possible, but this can’t always happen for a variety of reasons,” Mr Lloyd said.

“The Pet Adoption site will help the Epping Animal Welfare Facility connect future pet parents and their perfect friend.”

The Pet Adoption webpage provides information about each animal including their age and a biography.

“It is extremely important to Council that pets are adopted into households that are suited to both parties. We want this to be the pets’ forever home,” he said.

If you are interested in adopting a pet, visit Pet Rescue or visit the council website where there is more information and link to the adoption page.
