88 felines find homes at Cranbourne pop-up adoptions

April 15, 2018
Mikey was the first adoption during our Cranbourne pop-up adoptions.

Records were broken this weekend when 88 cats and kittens were adopted at our Cranbourne pop-up adoption event.

Despite the rain and wind, families from all across the south east (and some from the other side of Melbourne!) came along and opened their homes and hearts to a pet in need.

61 adoptions happened on Saturday, with animal-lovers queuing at the gates of our Cranbourne shelter from 7.30am, eagerly waiting to meet their furry friends at 9.00am.

A further 27 cats and kittens were adopted on Sunday, bringing the final adoption tally to 88.

This is the highest number of adoptions to take place at any of The Lost Dogs’ Home’s adoption events.

On behalf of staff and volunteers at the Home – and the many cats and kittens who were adopted this weekend – we send our deepest thanks to everyone who came along to adopt and change the life of a homeless pet. If you were one of these lovely people, we’d love to hear your adoption story.

Adoptions have now closed at our Cranbourne shelter.

The cats who missed out on being adopted this weekend will be moved to the adoptions centre at our North Melbourne shelter, where they will stay until they find a new home.

With cats and kittens becoming available for adoption almost every day, your perfect match won’t be far away. Click here to view cats and kittens ready for adoption.
