Pamper a pet and support a cause

TODAY you can wag your tail feather and show your support for the RSPCA'S Happy Tails Day.

Now is the ‘purr-fect' time to adopt a pet as Gladstone is bursting with cats and dogs needing to find their ‘forever' homes.

Judy Whicker from the RSPCA said there were many animals needing adoption and they could all be viewed on the adopt-a-pet website.

“Hopefully we can find a lot of animals a new home this Happy Tails Day,” Ms Whicker said.

It is easy to get behind the causeand you can show your support by either adopting a pet or purchasing some of the 2010 merchandise, including plush toys, charm bracelets and emery boards.

The next RSPCA open adoption day is on the October 24 for cats and kittens.

There will be another adoption day on October 31, when you can choose dogs and puppies. 

In the meantime you can head to www.adoptapet.com.au, where all the animals available can be viewed with detailed information on vaccinations, pricing and personality traits.

For more information log on to www.rspca.org.au or drop into a participating store including Big W, Bendigo Bank or NewsXpress to purchase 2010 RSPCA merchandise.
