NEWS: Half Price Adopt-a-Thon

February 19, 2015

Find your perfect match at The Lost Dogs’ Home and for half the price! Starting today and wrapping up on March 3, we are offering 50 per cent off the adoption fee of cats, kittens, dogs and puppies at our North Melbourne and Campaspe Shelters.

From outgoing dogs for active owners to couch companion cats for those who love the great indoors, potential adopters are bound to find their perfect match with the range of terrific adoption candidates seeking a home.

In the spotlight are over 50 adult cats seeking a home at both shelters, including our longest adoption candidate Jaguar who despite his outgoing personality and love of affection has sadly waited 143 days.

At our dog adoptions centre in North Melbourne sweet Gypsy has waited almost a month, while an energetic Stumpy Tail mix Odin at our Campaspe Shelter has waited almost two months to be adopted.

Change the life of a shelter animal today!

View all our adoption candidates at or meet them in-the-fur at either of our shelters.

All adoption candidates come fully health checked, vaccinated, wormed, desexed and microchipped — services and treatments all valued at over $300.

To receive the discount you will need to complete the Pet Licence Test and it is advised you do this prior to coming to the shelter by visiting

If renting you will need to provide a Rental Agreement showing you are approved to keep a pet at home.

Existing pet owners are encouraged to check their council regulations on the number of cats they can own per household, as some councils require permits for households with two or more cats.
