SPCA seeks homes for adult cats during three-day campaign

Regular adoption fees are half price from Friday, June 26 to Sunday, June 28

SPCA locations across the province

The Abbotsford shelter is among SPCA branches around the province that are offering 50 per cent off the regular adoption fees for adult cats from today (Friday) until Sunday.

The usual adoption criteria will apply, but the goal is to find loving homes for as many adult felines as possible during the three-day event.

“Adult cats need homes just as much as cute little kittens need homes, and kittens are always adopted quickly,” says Jane Talbot, BC SPCA director of regional operations. “Adult felines have a lot of love to give, and we’re hoping this promotion will encourage anyone who has been considering adoption to take the next step.”

Talbot said there are many benefits to adopting an older pet.

“They’re more settled, they’re house-trained, their personalities are fully developed and you know how big they’ll get. The best reason to adopt an adult, however, is because they deserve it.”

Each year, the BC SPCA rescues more than 15,000 cats and kittens across B.C. Because there are tens of thousands of homeless cats throughout the province, a major focus of the BC SPCA’s strategic plan is to address the cat overpopulation crisis in B.C.

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

The Abbotsford shelter is located at 34312 Industrial Way.
