Adopt a pet or buy a book and support RSPCA and Lifeline

In a further sign that RSPCA Qld are pulling out all stops to rehome more animals, the Society will host its second Pop Up Adoption event on Saturday January 16.

Dogs and cats from RSPCA Care Centres and foster homes will converge on the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre hoping to find their forever home. Dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will all be available for adoption on the day and this year RSPCA staff and volunteers are hoping to rehome nearly 350 animals.

At the inaugural event last year 277 animals were rehomed on the day. "To be honest, last year exceeded our expectations so this year we've set the bar even higher," said RSPCA Qld spokesperson Michael Beatty.

The Lifeline 'Bookfest' is on at the same time, so the whole day will be very family orientated. Lifeline do a wonderful job and we're thrilled to be "sharing the bill" on their opening day. I'm sure they will have a ton of books relating to pet care and animals in general so it's perfect mix for both of us. In our area we'll have demonstrations, entertainment, food, kids' corner activities and RSPCA stalls and information stands.

It will be a great day out for all and we can't wait to see you there and help you find your forever pet." RSPCA Qld wanted to point out that regulations prohibit people taking their own animals into the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Their adoption staff will provide people with resources that will help them introduce their pet to their new adopted animal.

On Saturday January 16 at Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre at 9am-4pm. Free Entry. Parking available at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from $16.
