AF­TER a rough start to life, ar­riv­ing at Whit­sun­day Friends of the RSPCA hair­less, cov­ered in sores and with a com­pro­mised im­mune sys­tem, Karma the eight-mon­thold cata­houla-great dane cross has a new home.

Wood­wark res­i­dent Matthew Bels, who took Karma home from the Whit­sun­day Friends of the RSPCA’s first adop­tion day on Sun­day, was un­der­stand­ably ex­cited to meet his new four-footed friend.

All 26 an­i­mals that were up for adop­tion on Sun­day have gone to new homes, with Whit­sun­day Friends of the RSPCA co-or­di­na­tors Maria Simp­son and Suz Crab­tree both over­whelmed by the com­mu­nity sup­port.

Mrs Simp­son said an­other adop­tion day would be or­gan­ised within six months.

“I rang them all back on Mon­day the ones that were adopted on Sun­day to see how they were set­tling in. Ev­ery­one’s very happy,” she said.

FRIENDS FOR­EVER: Karma was adopted by Matthew Bels at the Whit­sun­day Friends of the RSPCA adop­tion day.
