We will have transfers from all of our RSPCA regional shelters throughout the day, so you will certainly still find a pet perfect for you if you arrive later in the day! Although we aim to have over 60 dogs and puppies and 80 cats and kittens ready to go for when the event opens at 9am, we continue to fill the pens and crates as our beautiful animals are adopted during the day.
Please be patient with our staff and volunteers while we unload animals from vehicles and get them settled.
If you are adopting an adult dog, please be aware you will need to purchase a lead and harness to take them home in.
