A total of 138 adult cats and 185 kittens found forever homes during BC SPCA’s summer half-price adult cat adoption promotion which ran from July 27 to August 2. That’s an increase from the 2018 summer half-price adoption event where 107 adult cats and 132 kittens found loving homes.
BC SPCA had invited people to visit any of its 36 locations during a half-price adoption promotion for all adult cats. “At this time of year our shelters are always very full, and we have also rescued a large number of cats through cruelty investigations recently, so we’d love to find good homes for as many cats as possible during our half-price event,” said Lorie Chortyk, the BC SPCA’s general manager of communications.
Biscuit (below) was one of the many lucky cats to find a loving home during the promotion. This muted calico is almost five-years-old and came to the Sea to Sky Branch after her owner was hospitalised and could no longer care for her.
Biscuit is affectionate, talkative and loves to sit atop a high perch and watch the world go by. She’s an indoor and outdoor savvy cat who prefers to be the only feline in the home.
“Congratulations to Biscuit, her new guardian and all the other felines who were adopted last week!” SPCA said.
The promotion was presented by Hill’s® Pet Nutrition. the food supplier for the BC SPCA through its Hill’s Food, Shelter & Love® program.
The BC SPCA rescues and rehomes thousands of homeless, abused, injured and neglected cats and kittens throughout the province.
