The event, which will be on Saturday 16 September 2017 at The Marquee, Brisbane Showgrounds, will be a grand gathering of all the top animal rescue groups and welfare organisations.

The annual event is free of charge and is focused on finding homes for displaced and rescued animals from more than 30 shelters. Most of the rescue groups will be showcasing the dogs and cats for adoption. However, some groups will provide the best information on the animals available for adoption.

Aside from the adoption pavilions, there will be heaps of food stalls at the venue. Attendees can also take advantage of professional veterinary advice and browse through various pet products to help them start right with their new family member.

Extending Lifeline

The Big Adopt Out event intends to provide a lifeline to a wide variety of cats and dogs looking to find a loving home. In return, new owners can get the love and joy that these animals can offer.

People looking to adopt can bring their own dog from home to introduce to the new dog. The organisers can do a meet-and-greet with the dog they want to adopt. Dogs from home are not allowed to enter the event area, but they can stay at the Paws and Relax area located at the entrance.

Cats are not allowed in the event area. However, the adoption team can provide advice on how to introduce the newly adopted pet to the home cat.

Adoption prices range from $150 to $1,200. The price includes the amount spent for updated vaccination, flea and worm treatments, desexing and microchipping.
