How you can get a new pet for $30

THIS weekend the RSPCA is aiming to "Clear the Shelter” by dropping adoption fees to $29.

This initiative is to find permanent homes for the 600 animals available for adoption in Queensland right now.

Kingaroy RSPCA usually places over 350 animals in loving homes every year.

The RSPCA has monitored their adoption promotions and their research has confirmed lower prices when adopting does not result in a higher return rate.

According to RSPCA spokesman Michael Beatty, dropping the price can be the decision maker for many potential pet owners.

"The majority of people are already looking at adopting a pet, and this special adoption drive helps them make that decision to adopt, not shop,” Mr Beatty said.

"It's all about finding forever homes for all our animals and giving that extra incentive for people looking for a new pet a good reason to adopt, instead of shopping through online platforms or backyard breeders.”

Kingaroy RSPCA has puppies, dogs, kittens, cats and farm animals available for adoption at this special price.

Adoption at this price still includes the usual procedures including de-sexing and microchipping, vaccinations, veterinary checks and behavioural procedures, as well as a one-on-one with prospective new adoptive parents, to ensure all our animals go to great homes.

Those who are interested are able to pre-register to fast track the adoption process at theRSPCA website.
