About Jed:

Hello there, my name is Jed and I’m at RSPCA QLD’s Noosaville Campus. I’m a real cutie; very sweet and easy to please. I’m medium in size and will suit any family. To keep me safe I need a good fence and some basic training. I love dogs and will be fine with other animals too. I have a really clever side and just love to play. If you could be the family for me please give the team a call on 07 54491371 or you can pop in. We are open 7 days a week from 10.00am – 5.00pm; I come to you desexed, vaccinated and micro chipped. I have had a full vet check and you receive 14 days free health cover when you take me home. My special adoption fee is just $50 for a limited time. I’m part of the RSPCA’s Patient Paws promotion the waiting stops with you. Please come, I need a real home. Love and puppy kisses, Jed xoxo

A message from the RSPCA regarding dog adoption:

Matching the right people to the right dog is important to us at the RSPCA, that’s why we have an adoption process. Take your time to think about what type of dog you are after, and what type of dog is right for you and your family. Our dogs have been colour coded using our Find A Friend system to give you an indication of the family type that will suit them best.

Once you have spotted that special friend, an adoption assistant will talk to you about that particular dog, its needs, and its background. We will want to know about how the dog will live, so photos of your backyard are a good way of showing us about your lifestyle. We also ask about other family members and pets, and are happy to arrange a meet and greet with you and your existing pets. Above all else, our interest is in the welfare of the dog and making sure that it finds a ‘forever home’.

Each shelter will require an adoption application form to be filled, and an additional 24-hour cooling off period can be required to give you the opportunity to ensure you have made the right decision and not adopting on impulse. An interview can be arranged with an adoption officer to ensure that the best possible match has been made after this cooling off period.

Starts at 60 Writers

The Starts at 60 writers team seek out interesting topics and write them especially for you.

  1. I have a rescue dog. If I could afford more than I would get them unfortunately with vet bills and food etc, I can only afford one at a time.

  2. I’m same fostered 5 kittens. Nearly went broke feeding them. Kept two. Can’t afford more keep saying when I win lotto.

  3. Please someone adopt Jed. I adopted Kelpie 2yrs ago she is the most loving and beautiful dog. She was easy to train and O so faithful. So you would not be dissappointed if you gave Jed a home, you would be repayed with lots love and friendship forever. Good luck Jed.

  4. Adopted a Black , with a white chest, Kelpie Cross from the RSPCA in SA 9 months ago, he is going on for 2 years, he’s a great dog and we named him Jed

  5. Apart from our very first dog back in 1982 ( who we brought with us when we emigrated here from England in 1988 ) we have always had either abandoned or rescue home dogs. Our present 2 are Jake – 12.5 yrs. now- a Great Dane/ Bull Mastiff cross. He came to us from Shenton Park dog home in Perth when he was 18 months old & we are his 5th home – so in 18 months he’d already had 4 homes!! He is a truly beautiful gentle giant who settled in well all those years ago ( after a few to be expected ” getting to know his new home ” incidents. Our other dog is Paddy ( formally called Snowy ) who was found abandoned in a HomesWest house where the tenants had been evicted, in Broome W.A. & was taken in by Safe. We saw him on the net a few weeks after losing our previous much loved dog, fell in love with his photo & story, got in contact with Safe, adopted him & had him flown down to Perth to join us & Jake. That was 2 yrs. ago. Not sure on his age – 4-7 yrs. our vet thinks – he’s had a hard life but is now a loveable , loving , very happy dog. Not sure what breeds are in him – part sheep dog, part staffy maybe – but VERY furry!
    So, all in all, would always recommend to give a home to a dog in need, rather than buy a puppy from a pet shop window or puppy farm. The love you’ll receive back from this new member to your family to say ” Thankyou” for a second,third or more chance makes it all worthwhile. Good luck to ” Jed” – he looks a lovely boy & I’m sure he too will soon be adopted to his new, permanent home.
