Big Adopt Out Photo Story

September 24, 2014

If you were anywhere near the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane this weekend you may have heard a cacophony of happy woofs as over 125 dogs found their new homes at the second annual Big Adopt-Out. The day brought over 30 shelters and animal rescue groups together with dogs to suit every lifestyle and home.

We are pleased to say that eight of our fifteen adoptees present at the event are now happily settling into their new homes! It was a great opportunity to meet and chat with members of the public who were committed to adopting their new family member. Check out some of the great photos from the event below.

We are confident that there will be a flow on effect from the wide media coverage that will see the dogs and cats in our Brisbane shelters find new homes prior to our exit.
