Adoption Hub

Our Adoption Hub is set to redefine animal adoption centres in Australia. The facility, officially opened by the Lord Mayor of Melbourne in February 2017, sets a new benchmark in animal adoption services in Australia.

No longer confined to cages, the ‘Hub’ provides a safe haven for surrendered animals where they can freely play and let their true personalities shine. The Hub offers an interactive environment for the animals and public alike.

The Hub is inspired by world’s best practice adoption centres, and more than 12 months of research went into developing the facility.

Global best practice indicates a non-incarcerated environment is less stressful on animals, improving their health and happiness. This is a quantum step forward for animal adoption in Australia and will represent a systematic shift in Australian animal adoption practice.

The Hub is a new approach in animal adoption, and supports Lort Smith’s commitment to rehome the many animals surrendered to us each year, including the difficult cases who might otherwise not be given a second chance.

It’s a unique multi-faceted space, supported by digital screens providing information to visitors ranging from Adoption Profiles to animal health and wellbeing advice and responsible pet ownership. The facility will showcase a range of interactive features appealing to prospective adopters whilst creating a relaxed, positive and fun environment for the animals in need of a loving home.
