From July 17-27, the BC SPCA is having a cat adoption event, presented by Hill’s® Science Diet, at all its locations across B.C. to encourage animal lovers to come and check out the adult felines in the society’s care. With shelters filled with cats of all shapes, ages, colours and sizes, it’s a great time to consider adding a furry feline companion to your household.

“We’re hoping this promotion will encourage anyone who has been considering cat adoption to take the next step and make it reality,” says BC SPCA general manager of community relations Lorie Chortyk. “So many adult cats are looking for loving, forever homes – why not come and see if one of them is the purr-fect match for you?”

From July 17-27, all BC SPCA branches are offering 50 per cent off the usual adoption fees for all adult cats.

“The usual adoption criteria will apply, but the goal is to find fantastic homes for as many felines as possible during the event,” Chortyk says.

Presented by Hill’s®Science Diet®, the promotion will find more loving homes for cats, 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 pet over a kitten, she notes, as they’re calmer and more settled, litter trained, fully grown and their personalities are already developed, so potential pet guardians are more fully aware of what they’re going to get.

“But the best reason is, adult cats deserve love too,” Chortyk says.

Each year, the BC SPCA rescues more than 15,000 cats and kittens across B.C. To adopt an adult cat this weekend, visit your local BC SPCA branch during business hours or visit spca.bc.ca to search for adoptable adult felines.
