Homes needed for cats

The B.C. SPCA is holding a special adoption promotion for cats and kittens from Nov. 26 to Dec. 9

As the cold weather approaches, what could be better than a warm cat or kitten curled up in your lap?

The B.C. SPCA is holding a special adoption promotion for cats and kittens from Nov. 26 to Dec. 9 at the Vernon shelter. It offers 50 per cent off all feline adoption fees.

“Normally at this time of year, the number of abandoned and surrendered kittens lessens, but the kittens just keep coming this year and we are really overwhelmed with the number of homeless kittens and cats who need loving homes,” said Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations.

“We hope this special promotion will be an incentive for people who have thought through their decision to adopt a pet and are just waiting for the right time.”

While the goal of the Fall for Kittens promotion is to find loving homes for as many kittens and adult cats as possible, all of the usual adoption criteria will apply.

“We want to make sure that the animals are a right fit for their new home and that their needs will be met,” said Chortyk.

“As an added bonus, all cats and kittens are also covered by six weeks pet insurance courtesy of Petsecure to ensure the health of your new pet during the critical rehoming period.
