It’s meow or never

The B.C. SPCA is offering 50 per cent off all adult cat adoptions until July 27

Cat lovers can get more cuddles at half the price until July 27. The B.C. SPCA is having a cat adoption event at all its locations across B.C. to encourage animal lovers to come and check out the adult felines in the society’s care.

“We’re hoping this promotion will encourage anyone who has been considering cat adoption to take the next step and make it reality,” said B.C. SPCA general manager of community relations Lorie Chortyk. “So many adult cats are looking for loving, forever homes – why not come and see if one of them is the purr-fect match for you?”

All B.C. SPCA branches are offering 50 per cent off the usual adoption fees for all adult cats until July 27.

“The usual adoption criteria will apply, but the goal is to find fantastic homes for as many felines as possible during the event,” said Chortyk, noting that the more cats who are adopted, the more space the B.C. SPCA will have to help the many other cats and animals in need of care.

There are several benefits to adopting a more mature pet over a kitten, she notes, as they’re calmer and more settled, litter trained, fully grown and their personalities are already developed, so potential pet guardians are more fully aware of what they’re going to get.

“But the best reason is, adult cats deserve love too,” Chortyk says.

Each year, the B.C. SPCA rescues more than 15,000 cats and kittens across B.C. To adopt an adult cat, visit your local BC SPCA branch during business hours or visit spca.bc.ca to search for adoptable adult felines.
