RSPCA ROCKHAMPTON has slashed the adoption prices for cats and dogs in a bid to find homes for the animals.
The centre is full, with 70 cats in care and about 30 dogs in foster care.
Adoption centre manager Paul Hagen said the recent influx of animals was the biggest he had seen in his three years at the centre.
"This is probably the first time that we have had more animals than we can get out to foster care," he said.
"Normally this is a quieter time.
"The situation is pretty daunting. Our goal is to rehome as many animals as we can."
Mr Hagen said many of the animals had been surrendered by their owners, who were relocating and could not take their pets with them.
Others were strays that had no form of identification.
Mr Hagen said adoption prices had been reduced this month.
Dogs over four months would now cost $199, down from $315, and cats would be $99, down from $180.
The animals are desexed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and wormed, and have local council registration.
