Homes needed for abandoned dogs

THEY are 24 adorable faces which all have the one thing in common – they desperately need a home.

Come Sunday, Friends of RSPCA Gladstone is hoping the community of Gladstone will open up their hearts – and their homes – to one of these 24 dogs and puppies which are all available for adoption.

Residents can meet Friends of RSPCA Gladstone volunteers and some of the four-legged friends awaiting adoption as part of the group's monthly Dog Adoption Day.

To be held from 9am till midday at the dog adoption centre off Port Curtis Way, opposite NRG Power Station, the day is for those looking to buy a dog or keen to find out more about the group and how to become a foster carer.

All the dogs and puppies have been rescued from the pound and are currently in foster care, which, according to Friends of RSPCA Gladstone publicity officer Judy Whicker, is operating at full capacity.

“We have got some beautiful dogs up for adoption,” Ms Whicker said.

“By adopting one of these animals you are giving them a new home and giving us the chance to save another life.”
