Do you know that 400,000 animals are abandoned in Australia every year? Sent to crowded shelters, these animals are at risk of being put down but you’ll have a chance to rescue and make a difference for one or more animal at the upcoming Save A Life National Adoption day.
On Saturday, the 17th of Aug 2019, Just for Pets along with Animal Welfare League QLD will mount the Save A Life pet adoption day in Morningside. If you’re interested in pet adoption, drop by Pets Unleashed at 5/630 Wynnum Road during trading hours to meet and bring home your potential furever companion.
Cats and dogs up for rehoming on pet adoption day have been given medical attention from veterinarians and shelter caretakers while in temporary custody. They’ve been vaccinated, spayed or neutered, as well as microchipped. However, they still need a good home where a human can shower them with tender loving care.
Is Zeus the right pet for your? This American Staffy Mix is a year old. Big in size, Zeus has a big and lovable personality as well. He’s well-mannered and well-trained but he’s still eager to learn more from a new master.
Could Crystal be your furry companion? She’s a spunky 5-year-old domestic short hair mix. Crystal is friendly towards dogs and especially loves to sleep all day. She’ll easily be the queen of your heart.
Animals in shelters wait more than two years to be adopted and this pet adoption events increase their chances of finding people who will embrace them into the family. Since 2015, Save A Life pet adoption has successfully matched 350 pets to their caring humans. Animal Welfare League QLD, on the other hand, has rehomed 3,167 animals.
You can help raise this number by going to the pet adoption event where a Just for Pets staff will happily share tips on adopting an abandoned animal. However, if you can’t make it to the event, a few of these animals are also featured at the Animal Welfare League QLD website, where you can personally make the arrangements for adoption.
