Cats Dogs Animals Pets Adopt a Pet Happy Story Rehome RSPCA Event
2019 Pop Up Adoption saw 276 dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and guinea pigs find new homes

Hundreds of new adopters have welcomed a pet in need into their home this New Year!

276 dogs, cats, puppies, kittens and guinea pigs found loving new families at the RSPCA’s Pop Up Adoption, held on Saturday 12th January, 2019.

The event was a great success with thousands of people visiting the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition throughout the day, hoping to find their new companion. If you’re still looking for the right pet for you, you can view our pets currently available to adopt right across Queensland here.


RSPCA Ambassadors Emily Seebohm, Andrew McCullough and Jessica Stafford were there on the day showing their support with Jessica as MC at the event for the second time.

Digit, a young cattle dog puppy, was the star of Pop Up Adoption.

She was hit by a car in Rockhampton in November and her previous owners left her injuries untreated for days and allegedly provided potentially fatal human drugs instead of seeking veterinary expertise.

Brought in by RSPCA Inspectors, Digit received the emergency surgery she needed thanks to generous community donors raising over $6,500 for her care. She had broken back legs, exposed bones in her toes and potentially could have suffered organ failure. For such a young pup, she had a long road to recovery and rehabilitation ahead but she miraculously made a full recovery and was able to attend RSPCA’s Pop Up Adoption. In even better news, Digit has now found a loving family and has been enjoying life with her new owners – even chasing a ball around her new yard within hours.
