The RSPCA adoption drive has found more than 500 homes for animals in less than two weeks.

Adoption drive was a success and has eased pressure leading into Christmas

RSPCA Queensland thanks the Queensland public for their assistance in the adoption drive that started on 1 November, as all nine animal care centres were at capacity in the lead up to Christmas.

RSPCA spokesperson Michael Beatty says they have found 538 animals new homes, which is 240 more than this time last year through the adoption drive.

In Queensland 232 cats, 249 dogs and 102 kittens and puppies have been adopted during the first 12 days of the adoption drive.

“We really are very grateful and we’re urging people to continue to put the RSPCA first when it comes to choosing a new pet. We’re still hoping to rehome 1300 animals in the month of November,” he says.

RSPCA Queensland now rehomes more animals than any other animal welfare organisation in Australia.

All RSPCA dogs and cats are de-sexed and micro-chipped, making it a perfect place to adopt a new pet for Christmas.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Queensland (RSPCA Qld) is the state’s oldest, largest and leading animal welfare charity, dedicated to improving the lives of all domestic, farmed and native animals throughout Queensland.

RSPCA Qld requires $30 million annually to support our animal centres, programs and services. As a non-government, community based charity, RSPCA Qld receives less than 1% of government funding and relies on donations, bequests and sponsorships from ordinary Queenslanders, just like you.
