Aggi hopes doggy friends find a home like hers

LISELOTTE Peyer walked away with a new, furry best friend on Saturday at the RSPCA'S dog adoption day, but there are still plenty of pups looking for a home in Gladstone.

Ms Peyer, who lives on acreage, specifically came out to the adoption centre to buy Aggi, an 18-month-old ridgeback cross.

"I know that she would go to the fence and check who is there by barking," she said.

About 30 people visited the centre and five dogs were adopted by 11am, bit Friends of RSPCA Gladstone president Judy Whicker said the number of foster dogs and cats was still overflowing across Queensland.

"Brisbane is full. We are all just chocka block with animals. It's like a revolving door," she said.

"A lot of bigger dogs are being picked up from the pound. The big ones take more time to get a home."

A special 25% discount off all dogs and cats is on offer this Saturday and Sunday, with up to $255 sliced off the original price.

"If we can get one or two pets adopted that would be great. People can look on the website for the pictures and then ring if they want to buy one," Ms Whicker said.

For cat and kitten inquiries, phone 4978 6666. For dogs, 0439 709 369.
