UNWANTED, abandoned or otherwise forgotten – thousands of cats each year end up in shelters around the State.
Volunteer organisations like Armadale Community Animal Rescue Group are invaluable in ensuring as many cats as possible are rehomed.
However according to RSPCA statistics, more than 32 per cent of caught or surrendered cats in WA are put down – usually due to illness or behavioural issues.
Ginger brothers Rocky and Will, at only a year old, have spent most of their lives at Armadale Community Animal Rescue Group’s shelter.
A shelter spokesperson said like so many cats, they were adopted as tiny kittens and then returned when someone belatedly realised all kittens became cats.
The brothers are two peas in a pod and often be found draped over one another other or sharing grooming duties.
It is hard to see why they have remained at the shelter for so long – however they need to find a home.
For information on Rocky and Will or any other cats needing adoption, call Armadale Community Animal Rescue Group’s shelter on 9399 4906 between 9am and 12 noon daily.
