CALL TO ACTION: Adopt-A-Thon Update

March 10, 2015

We put an urgent plea out, you heard, you cared and you shared!

Thanks to you, since making the call to action late last week, 76 of our shelter cats and kittens now have a home to call their own.

The Labour Day long weekend proved to be the busiest as shelter staff were run off their feet matching our magnificent moggies with interested candidates — a terrific total of 65 cats and kittens were adopted across both shelters during the long weekend alone.

Our call to action however continues with our sights firmly set on our March goal of finding a total 222 cats and kittens new homes.

With three weeks and 146 felines to go, we urge you to adopt, foster and/or advocate to get the word out and help us reach our target.

Adopt-A-Thon (March 5 – March 31)

• Cats aged six months and over — fee-waived adoptions

• Kittens aged six month and under — 50 per cent off the adoption fee

How you can help

  • Adopt: View our terrific range of cats and kittens at dogshome.com. Visit your nearest shelter to meet them in person — our staff are keen to find you your perfect match! Remember you will need to complete your Pet Licence test to take advantage of these offers.
  • Foster: We need fosters to care for cats and kittens for an average of two to four weeks. This is a terrific way to give a cat time out in a normal home environment, while creating vital space at our shelters. All expenses are covered and successful applicants will be notified within two weeks of applying. For more information visit our foster care page.
  • Advocate: If you cannot adopt, why not advocate for a cat currently seeking a home? Share adoption candidate profiles via your Facebook page, email or via the good ol’ word of mouth!
