Dog Adoption Zone


Royal ICC (Upstairs)


9:30am – 5pm daily.


Every homeless Dog deserves the opportunity to find a loving, well-suited home for life. The 2017 Brisbane show helped connect pooches in need with loving homes, and grew awareness for their plight.

The Dog Adoption Zone was a unique opportunity to learn all about Dog adoption with experts on hand at the show and dozens of Rescue Groups exhibiting. Visitors discovered whether Dog adoption was right for them, what’s involved, how to find a suitable Dog and how to start the process.

We are committed to raising awareness for adoption and substantially increasing the number of abandoned and homeless Dogs placed in loving homes. By allowing hundreds of shelters to exhibit at the Dog Lovers Show since 2013 we have helped 2,000+ Dogs in need to find loving, well-suited homes.

With the support of all our visitors we are confident that the 2017 Brisbane Show helped contribute to improving the lives of many more Dogs so we thank them from the bottom of our hearts for spreading the word and helping us promote this important initiative.

Visitors are unable to actually adopt a Dog at our Shows, but are provided with all the right information and contacts needed to make informed decisions. Qualified staff are on-hand at each Show to advise visitors of all the nearest shelters to their home as well as Dogs that are available to adopt now which are suitable for their family and lifestyle. Most of the exhibitors participating in the Dog Adoption Zone bring Dogs along to the Show that will be available for adoption – so visitors can actually meet many rescue Dogs at the event.
