This Saturday the Queensland RSPCA will be hosting its annual Big Adopt Out at Brisbane Showgrounds.

RSPCA has teamed up with 20 other rescue groups to provide houses for the furry animals for the event.

RSPCA Qld spokesperson Michael Beatty said the partnership with rescue organisations has been essential to finding the right homes for the dogs and cats.

“Rescue groups are so important when it comes to dogs that need one on one attention,” Mr Beatty said.

“They can give individual care and training until the dog is ready to be adopted. This Big Adopt Out will showcase how this partnership works and why it works so well.”

As well as the opportunity to adopt a new furry family member, The Big Day Out will also provide food stalls, entertainment, vet advice and products to purchase.

“At the Big Adopt Out you’ll get the very best information from people who understand the breeds and their needs. So if you’re thinking about adopting a new pet then this is the place to start,” Mr Beatty said.

President of Happy Tails Animal Rescue Inc. Mykaela Campanini says the event provides more opportunities for dogs and cats that are about to be put down to get adopted.

“Partnering with these other rescue organisations means were able to display animals that really need the support and love of a home,” Ms Campanini said.

The Big Adopt Out will run from 9-3pm at the Marquee, RNA Showgrounds, Bowen Hills.
