RSPCA $29 adoption day starts Friday

In a push to find abandoned animals their forever home, RSPCA Bundaberg will be hosting a massive adoption sale with all animals in the local shelter available for just $29.

RSPCA Bundaberg animal care manager Lorin Grey said 25 dogs and cats will be available in the adoption sale, which runs from 10am Friday to 4pm Sunday.

She said it's hoped the low adoption price encourages residents to find the perfect pet to add to their family while reducing numbers at the shelter.

“Some of these animals have been at the shelter for a long time and deserve to find a family,” she said.

“A few of our cats have been with us for more than three months while some of our beautiful dogs have been with us for two months after coming from other shelters.”

Lorin said while the sale day was a good incentive for potential pet owners, there were also some rules around the adoption process.

“We will still be very strict on our adoption requirements,” she said.

“For example, we will only be allowing pets to go to suitable homes with owners who are will to take pet responsibility seriously.

“For our dogs, we sometimes require breed experience, depending on the animal, and organising a meet and greet is always preferred which can be done on Saturday.”

Lorin said she hoped the three-day event would result in no more animals left at the shelter.

“This event not only gives us an opportunity to make a big push to get our current animals into homes, it is also the chance to clear some room in our shelter for any upcoming animals which many need our assistance,” she said.

The $29 adoption day will be held at RSPCA Bundaberg, 31 Doblo Street, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Walk-ins spots are available, however, those with a booking will be given priority. There will be no holds available for pets at any time.
