Event:
Your new fur-baby is waiting
It's back! The biggest adoption event of the year is here in South Brisbane again. RSPCA Queensland is proud to announce that Pop Up Adoption will return for a fifth time, in 2019. It will be a day of fun, so head down to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Exhibition Hall 2, Merivale Street and Glenelg Street, South Brisbane on Saturday 12 January 2018 from 9am to 3pm. That gives you a full 6 hours to find the latest addition to your family.

At last year's Pop Up Adoption event, over 8,500 people walked through the doors and 432 dogs, puppies, cats and kittens found their fur-ever home. What a great result for animal welfare in Australia to adopt so many animals at the one location in one day. With 432 animals finding their forever homes at the event in 2018, the aim this year is to rehome even more animals.

There will be cats and kittens, plus dogs and puppies, all travelling to the event from RSPCA shelters all over Queensland, all crossing their paws and hoping to find their purr-fect match on the day.

Not only will there be several hundreds of animals to adopt, there will be Vet advice, information stalls, pet products and more. It is sure to be a fun-filled day. And if that is not enough, an added bonus is that if you adopt at the event, you will also receive a Adoption Goodie Bag (while stocks last) to pamper your new furry friend.
