KELOWNA – The B.C. SPCA in Kelowna has so many cats, staff loaded them into a van and drove them to another shelter in Victoria in hopes of adopting them.

With over 100 cats looking for a home at the Kelowna shelter, the SPCA Drive for Lives program transported 21 felines on Thursday.

“As soon as the 21 were gone, we immediately had another 10 come in – the wait list is never-ending it seems,” Kelowna branch supervisor Kaylyn Robinson says in a media release.

The SPCA has a sale on cat adoptions until Nov. 30, 50 per cent off the regular fees.

The shelters need to make room for the animals, which arrive as the temperature drops outside.

“It’s cold outside, and with the adoption promotion, we’re hoping we’ll see a lot of homeless cats find loving homes before the end of the month,” Robinson says.
