Shelter animals will need to be brought back to the RSPCA Animal Care Centre in Malaga for regular medical checks and behaviour assessments. The frequency will depend on each animal, but generally either every two weeks in the beginning, or at least once a month.

Medical appointments for foster animals are scheduled between set times on weekdays:

  • Monday 1.30pm-3.00pm
  • Tuesday 9.00am-11.00am
  • Wednesday 1.30pm-3.00pm
  • Thursday 1.30pm-3.00pm
  • Friday 9.00am-11.00am

Medical appointments or behaviour assessments are not available over weekends.

Animals in the Pets in Crisis Program are not treated at RSPCA WA’s vet clinic and generally do not require scheduled medical check-ups. If a Pets in Crisis animal requires emergency vet treatment, foster carers are required to take them to their nearest Vetwest Animal Hospital for treatment. Vetwest will invoice RSPCA WA for these services.
