Love watching cat videos?  How about having a cat of your very own to watch, instead?  Now, for a limited time only, you can get all the fun and cat cuddles for half the price, from the BC SPCA.

From July 18-26, the BC SPCA is holding a cat adoption promotion at all of its locations across B.C. to encourage animal lovers to come and check out the adult felines in the society’s care. With the province’s shelters filled with cats of all shapes, sizes, ages and colours, it’s a fantastic time to consider adding a furry feline companion to your household.

“We’re hoping this promotion, which offers 50 per cent off the usual adoption fees for all adult cats, will encourage anyone who has been considering cat adoption to take the next step and make it reality,” says Lorie Chortyk, BC SPCA general manager, community relations.

The adoption event, sponsored by Hill’s® Science Diet®,  will find more forever homes for cats throughout the province, which means the BC SPCA will have more space to help the many other animals in need of care in B.C.  A free bag of  Science Diet® cat food will be provided with each adoption.

There are several benefits to adopting a more mature cat over a kitten, Chortyk notes, as they’re calmer and more settled, litter trained, fully grown, and their personalities are already developed, so potential adopters are more fully aware of just who they’ll be adopting.

“So many adult cats are waiting for loving, forever homes – why not come and see if one of them is the purr-fect match for you?”

Each year, the BC SPCA rescues more than 15,000 cats and kittens throughout British Columbia. To adopt an adult cat before July 26, visit your local BC SPCA branch during business hours, or visit spca.bc.ca/adopt to search for adoptable adult felines.
