THE RSPCA is reducing adoption fees for adult cats between April 15 and April 28 to $39.

These 10-year-old brothers were surrendered to RSPCA last year, and have been in care for more than 140 days.

Every cat adopted from RSPCA WA comes sterilised, microchipped, and fully up-to-date with vaccinations and parasite treatment.

Normal adoption policy and procedures apply, so even though the adoption fee is discounted, the same time and effort goes into matching each animal to the right family.

“Many people are keen to welcome a cute kitten into their home, but adult cats can have a harder time finding their fur-ever family – especially if they’ve got a few more years under their belt,” RSPCA WA executive manager animal services Hannah Dreaver said.

“Since 1 January, 68 adult cats have been adopted from RSPCA WA, while 110 kittens have moved on to new homes in that same period.

“Right now, there’s more than 20 gorgeous adult cats waiting at the cattery to be adopted.

“They’d much prefer to be enjoying themselves with a family of their own, so we’re hoping the reduced adoption fee will help them find their purr-fect new owners sooner rather than later.

“Cats like Bomber and Ginger Megs have so much love to give. They deserve better than to spend their golden years in a shelter environment. We really hope someone sees them and falls in love during ‘Get Meow-t’.”
