LOGAN residents are opening their hearts and homes to lost and abandoned pets at the Logan Animal Management Centre.
Two families from Beenleigh and Greenbank have found their newly-adopted animals are the perfect companions to the pets they already have.
The centre at 213 Queens Road, Kingston is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 4.30pm and Saturday 9am to 2pm.
For more information on adopting a pet call 3412 5397 or visit the Logan City Council website.
Beenleigh's Annette Thornton-Vincent has now come to the rescue of two dogs and a cat at the Animal Management Centre.
"I've always had rescue pets," Ms Thornton-Vincent said.
"They make the best pets as they seem to know they are getting a second chance."
Ms Thornton-Vincent previously had Lucy the cat and Teddy the dog and decided to visit the centre to add another member to her family.
"I was looking for a small dog that fitted my life and I wanted a friend for Teddy," Ms Thornton-Vincent said.
She adopted silky-haired terrier Elmo, who quickly bonded with poodle Teddy and Lucy.
"They all have their own personalities," Annette said.
"They bring fun, life and sometimes chaos into the family."
Double the trouble, twice the love
Greenbank's Anthony and Elaine Bourdreau visited the centre expecting to adopt one new family member, but walked away with two precious pooches.
Staff at the centre had expected eight-year-old Jack and one-year-old Dolly to go to separate homes.
Mr and Mrs Bourdreau could not choose between the pair.
The Greenbank couple have always had dogs and decided they needed a companion for their existing pet Zoe, who began to fret and not eat.
When they visited the centre Mr Bourdreau instantly bonded with Jack.
Mrs Bourdreau was smitten with Dolly as she reminded her of a past pet.
They only solution was to adopt both.
"Dogs give you as much love as you give them," Mrs Bourdreau said.
