RSPCA South Australia is again on the prowl for many purrrfect new forever homes, with adopters invited to choose their own price for the adoption fees of adult cats from today until Sunday.
RSPCA’s Lonsdale shelter will be staying open longer 10am – 5pm until Friday, and opening an hour earlier on the weekend – from 9am until 2pm.
Tim Charles, Head of Animal Operations at RSPCA South Australia, says he hopes the extended hours and significant price promotion helps boost adult cat adoptions.
“All RSPCA rescue cats are desexed, vaccinated, microchipped and vet-checked, ready for their new homes,” Mr Charles said.
“Being able to choose your own adoption fee is really a huge incentive to head down to RSPCA Lonsdale if you were already thinking of getting a new pet.
“Our shelter has filled very quickly again with homeless cats since ‘Clear the Shelter’ – this promotion really about finding homes for adult cats who often get overlooked for kittens.
“The benefits of adopting an adult cat include the fact they’re usually less boisterous than kittens, less likely to use your furniture as a scratching post and have established personalities so you definitely know the type of cat that you’re getting,” he said.
The promotion will also apply to RSPCA’s Port Lincoln and Whyalla Shelters (usual opening hours apply).
