Shelter offers half-price adoption

Until Oct. 14, all B.C. SPCA branches are offering 50 per cent off the usual adoption fees for all adult cats.

Kittens are cuter than cute, there’s no doubt. But with an abundance of felines across the province, the B.C. SPCA is hoping an upcoming adoption promotion will encourage British Columbians to consider adopting an adult cat companion – or even two.

Until Oct. 14, all B.C. SPCA branches are offering 50 per cent off the usual adoption fees for all adult cats.

“Kittens are always in high demand, but the goal during this event is to find fantastic homes for as many felines as possible,” Talbot says. “The usual adoption criteria will apply – we always try to find the best match with personality, lifestyle and what the potential pet guardian is looking for, but the best reason is, adult cats deserve love, too.”

Adopting an adult cat instead of a kitten has benefits, she notes, as they’re calmer and more settled, litter trained, fully grown and their personalities are already developed, so potential adopters know exactly what they’re getting.

To adopt an adult cat, please visit Nanaimo SPCA branch during business hours, or visit spca.bc.ca/adopt.
