Having a pet at home has so many benefits, but it’s always a two-way deal. You need to provide for your pet’s basic needs and make sure they’re leading a happy, healthy life in your care.
Animal Behaviour and Needs
Listening to your pet
Our furry and feathery friends might not be able to speak to us, but they’re often very good at communicating what they want. Cat headbutts are a common way of getting a good ear scratch, and puppy dog eyes usually have a reason. Understanding how your pet communicates with you bonds you together and helps to create a pawsome relationship.
Keeping pets entertained
Pets left alone for large parts of the day are going to get bored. There are so many ways to keep their lives interesting until you walk through the door, from fun ideas to spice up their environment, to feel-good products from our online store.
Sometimes having a furry companion just doesn’t work out the way you planned, and RSPCA Victoria is here to help. Our priority is to have happy pets in happy homes, so get in touch if you’re reaching the end of your leash.
