With more than 200 cats and kittens taking up residence at its Weston shelter, the RSPCA is looking to help its felines find their Fur-ever homes.
From Monday, RSPCA ACT will offer $99 adoptions to help make room for other vulnerable animals on the shelters growing surrender wait list.
CEO Michelle Robertson said there’s more than 30 cats currently on the wait list but hopes this drive will encourage locals who’ve been considering a cat to go and pay the shelter a visit.
“We’ve had a number of cats in care for a long period of time and we want to find them their perfect match just in time for Christmas”
“As our cattery exceeds capacity, we see an increase in the likelihood of spread of illness and disease. This means not only will animals stay longer to recover, but a greater stretch on our resources here at the shelter.” Ms Robertson added.
Every cat available for adoption is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and health checked by the team at the RSPCA.
Among those looking for their purr-fect match is 4-year-old Wallace (pictured above.)
Wallace has been with the Weston shelter for 109 days.
Discounted adoption is available until 23 December.
