Happy Hug Your Cat Day!

June 4, 2016

We show our pets love each and every day, but today is an extra special day for the cat owners out there. Today, 4 June, is Hug Your Cat Day!

To mark the occasion, our adoptable cats have been lapping up some extra hugs from their human friends here at the Home. Meet some of our long-term felines below and find out what makes them so special.

Until 13 June 2016, we’re halving the adoption fees for long-term cats and dogs who have been with us for more than 20 days. Learn more about our Paw-Mate Club.
