Help set a new world record and adopt a fur-friend

RSPCA Queensland hopes to set a new record at its Pop Up Adoption event on January 14, where four-legged friends will be ready to be rehomed.

Last year 413 foster care dogs, puppies, cats and kittens were rehomed during the annual event - 135 more than the year before.

This year over 500 animals from all over Queensland will converge on the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, which will also be hosting the Lifeline Bookfest.

RSPCA Queensland spokesperson Michael Beatty said Lifeline was sure to have lots of pet related books for sale. 

"The whole day will be very family orientated.

"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 said adoptees were not allowed to bring their existing pets to the event, so they would be resources available to help introduce them to their newly-adopted animal when they returned home.

Everyone who adopts an animal on the day will receive an RSPCA gift bag valued at $100.

"The adoption price has also been halved, with adult cats going for just $19 and dogs for $49," Mr Beatty said.

The event is being held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 9am to 4pm on Saturday, January 14.
