If you have room in your home and your heart for a new best friend, the BC SPCA invites you to check out the amazing cats looking for their furr-ever family during our upcoming adult cat adoption promotion. The event, proudly presented by Hill’s® Pet Nutrition, takes place May 25-31 in SPCA shelters across B.C.
"We’re offering 50 per cent off adoption fees for all adult cats, which is a great incentive for people who have been thinking about adopting and it allows us to find homes more quickly for the incredible cats in our care," says Lorie Chortyk, BC SPCA general manager of communications. "This spring we have taken an overwhelming number of cats into care through hoarding cases and other rescue situations, so our shelters are very full."
Adopting an adult cat has many benefits, adds Chortyk.
"Older cats tend to be more calm; they've also been litter box trained and their personalities are developed, so it is easier to find just the right match.”
Last year, the BC SPCA found new loving homes for nearly 10,000 cats and kittens throughout the province. If you're interested in making an adult cat part of your family, be sure to visit your local BC SPCA branch, or visit spca.bc.ca/adopt.
