RSPCA Queensland Pop-Up Adoption Drive 2020

Spend a day surrounded by pups and kits.

Because you're reading this, we know you're not someone who would receive a pet for Christmas, only to decide it wasn't for you. We know you're one of the good folks. You're probably hoping that you do receive a loveable animal as a gift, even if you already have one — or several — that you adore.

We understand your yearning, and so does RSPCA Queensland. In trying to find permanent homes for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens surrendered into their care from all over the state, they're bringing all those cuddly creatures to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 9am–2pm on Saturday, January 18 for their sixth annual pop-up adoption event.

Entry is via gold coin donation, and includes demonstrations, entertainment, food and activities, as well as RSPCA stalls and information. And then there's the hundreds of animals waiting for your affection — and for you to take them home with you. Hundreds of critters find homes each year, in case you're wondering.

Although you can't put a price on the happiness that a new four-legged friend will bring, those wanting to adopt an older cat or dog can do so for a cheaper price — $150 for a meowing cutie, and $250 for a barking bestie. If you've got your heart set on loving your new family member from an early age, kittens ($245) and puppies ($499) aged under four months will also be looking for human companions. There'll also be guinea pigs for $40.

There's more to pet adoption than overdosing on cuteness, of course, with making the commitment to care for an animal serious business. For further information, read RSPCA Queensland's FAQs. And, while you can take a pet home with you, you can't bring your existing furry pal.
