Big Adopt Out returns on Saturday September 15 from 9am to 2pm at the Brisbane Showgrounds! Over 250 cats, dogs, puppies and kittens will be looking for their new homes with RSPCA Queensland working alongside 20 other animal rescue groups under the one roof! 

Now in its 6th year, the Big Adopt Out showcases how rescue groups and the RSPCA work together to save more lives every year.

There will be animals of all ages, shapes, sizes and breeds available to adopt with adoption fees starting from just $49 for RSPCA adult cats and dogs that have been patiently waiting the longest to find their new family. 

“This will be the largest variety of dogs and cats in one place at one time,” said RSPCA Queensland spokesperson Michael Beatty. “At the Big Adopt Out you’ll get the very best information from people who understand the breeds and their needs. So if you’re thinking about adopting a new pet then this is the place to start.” 

RSPCA Queensland works with over 100 different rescue groups year-round, right across Australia and scores of animals are rehomed through this vital partnership.

“Rescue groups are so important when it comes to dogs that need one-on-one attention,” continued Mr Beatty. “They can give individual care and training until the dog is ready to be adopted. This Big Adopt Out will showcase how this partnership works and why it works so well.”

If you are looking for a companion for your pre-existing dog, you can bring your dog along to the event. There will be a dog minding area where Paws and Relax will take care of your pooch while you browse for another canine companion. Then you can all have a meet and greet together to see if they are a match!

There will also be food stalls, entertainment, vet advice and products to purchase for your new family member from RSPCA World for Pets on site and entry is just a gold coin donation.
