Fourteen pooches find new homes but more are waiting
FRIENDS of the RSPCA Gladstone were ecstatic with the result of their dog adoption day on Sunday, the first at the new Callemondah centre.
The centre surpassed its goal of "re-homing" 12 dogs, with 14 lucky pooches going to loving owners by noon.
Friends of the RSPCA president Judy Whicker said she was happy with the first event at the centre.
"We are very grateful because the PCYC let us use their facilities for a couple of months, which was good, but it is just great to be back into our own facility," she said.
However, there were still many dogs looking for new homes.
"We've probably got about 35 on our books," Mrs Whicker said.
Among those who missed out on Sunday was Billie, a one-year-old boxer cross.
Foster carer Kathryn O'Brien said she hoped Billie found a home soon because he was lovely with people, but had a bit of trouble getting along with other dogs.
"He knows how to sit and is really playful," she said, adding he loved to play ball.
