Hundreds of cats, dogs and other animals are patiently waiting for homes at RSPCA Queensland with many more animals being cared for behind the scenes.

Until April 1st (no joke), adult cats will be $50 and adult dogs $199 to adopt at RSPCA Queensland Adoption Centres and Op Shops.

 “Sadly the number of animals we’re caring for is continuing to rise and our team are looking after quite a lot of Inspectorate cases. This means that animals are waiting for their date in court before they can move on with their lives,” said RSPCA spokesperson Emma Lagoon.

“So while we continue to care for pets behind the scenes, we desperately need loving new owners to come forward and adopt the animals that are available. Some of these have been looking for homes for nearly a year!”

This is 7 year old Leloo, one of three dogs rescued by our Inspectors after they were being kept confined in a trailer. While the other dogs have been rehomed poor Leloo has been in care for over 345 days and is desperately hoping her lucky day will come soon! She’s available to adopt from RSPCA Qld’s care centre at Wacol.

This is Maisy, a three-year-old Bull Arab cross who was surrendered last year as her owner was moving. She also tested positive to heartworm and underwent veterinary treatment as soon as she came into the RSPCA. Sadly, Maisy hasn’t had anyone interested in adopting her and she’s been with the RSPCA for over 300 days. She’s also available to adopt from Wacol.

Adorable Coco the one-year-old cat has been in RSPCA care for over 266 days now. Seized by our Inspectorate last year, she’s patiently waiting to start afresh! She can also be adopted from Wacol.

“Our adoption fees really are a small price to pay to get a loving companion for life.”
