THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - Get all the love for half the price. From July 18-26, the BC SPCA is holding a cat adoption promotion, presented by Hill’s® Science Diet®, at all of its locations across B.C. to encourage animal lovers to come and check out the adult felines in the society’s care.
With the province’s shelters filled with cats of all shapes, sizes, ages and colours, it’s a fantastic time to consider adding a furry feline companion to your household.
“We’re hoping this promotion, which offers 50 per cent off the usual adoption fees for all adult cats, will encourage anyone who has been considering cat adoption to take the next step and make it reality,” says Lorie Chortyk, BC SPCA general manager, community relations.
The adoption event will find more loving homes for cats throughout the province, which means the BC SPCA will have more space to help the many other animals in need of care in B.C.
“Hill’s® Science Diet® is excited to continue our long-term sponsorship of this special adoption event,” says Hill’s Pet Nutrition general manager Joe Giles. “The Hill’s Food, Shelter & Love® partnership program with the BC SPCA and our support of this event is a natural extension of our mission: To help enrich and lengthen the special relationships between people and their pets. With the free bag of Science Diet® we provide with every adoption, our hope is that new pet guardians will continue the feeding regimen the BC SPCA has started, for a lifetime of health and happiness for their pet.”
There are several benefits to adopting a more mature cat over a kitten, Chortyk notes, as they’re calmer and more settled, litter trained, fully grown, and their personalities are already developed, so potential adopters are more fully aware of what they’re going to get.
“So many adult cats are waiting for loving, forever homes – why not come and see if one of them is the purr-fect match for you?”
Each year, the BC SPCA rescues more than 15,000 cats and kittens throughout British Columbia. To adopt an adult cat this weekend, visit your local BC SPCA branch during business hours, or visit the SPCA website to search for adoptable adult felines.
