Northern Rivers Animal Services News

Some of the gorgeous puppies NRAS (Northern Rivers Animal Services Inc.) has coming up for adoption made a very special appearance at the NRAS Shelter earlier in the week.

As part of a “cheque handover” from their wonderful partners at Melanie Stewart Real Estate, NRAS volunteers got to step out into the sunshine and have some serious cuddle time with sisters, Paris & Pepsi.

“We had only taken these two little bubs into care days earlier,” said NRAS President, Jo Parker.  “So, it was great to have the opportunity to show them off to Robyn Hunt from Melanie Stewart Real Estate when she visited to present a sponsorship cheque,” continued Jo.

“The photo shoot was coordinated to commemorate our 1 year partnership anniversary with the Melanie Stewart team so it was fitting that we could show first-hand the animals that their sponsorship dollars are helping us to support.”

Northern Rivers Animal Services has slated its next Adoption Day at Petstock Ballina for Saturday 17 June from 10:00am 1:00pm

 Including Paris & Pepsi there are many gorgeous animals looking for their forever homes including 17 dogs & puppies and 14 cats & kittens who are all vet checked, flea & worm treated, vaccinated, de-sexed and microchipped prior to adoption.

All available animals can be viewed, or prospective adoptees can download an Adoption Questionnaire, at: or the friendly team of volunteers can be contacted weekdays between 10:00am & 4:00pm on T:  6681 1860

It will be a busy time as Ballina Shire Council will also be hosting two “Chip n Check” days on Saturday 17th & 24th June at their animal shelter in Piper Drive.  The Council will be offering FREE microchipping between 9:00am & 1:00pm and a $50.00 desexing voucher for the FIRST 100 people.
