Until July 25 cat lovers in B.C. can adopt an adult feline friend from the SPCA for half the usual price

SPCA’s sweet deal on cats

Get all the feline love for half the price.

Get all the feline love for half the price.

That’s the catch line used by the BC SPCA for its promotion encouraging people to adopt adult cats between July 18 and 25.

“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 is intended to find more loving 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.

“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,” Chortyk said.

Sponsored by Hills Science Diet, people who participate in the program will receive a free bag of Science Diet for their newly adopted feline friend.

There are several benefits to adopting a more mature cat over a kitten, Chortyk said. They’re calmer and more settled, litter trained, fully grown, and their personalities are already developed, so potential adopters are more fully aware of what they’re going to get.

“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 this weekend, visit your local BC SPCA branch during business hours, or visit spca.bc.ca/adopt to search for adoptable adult felines.

The closest branches of the SPCA are: Duncan, 7550 Bell McKinnon Road, 250-746-4646; and Nanaimo, 540 Lower Ganges Road, 250-537-2123.
