NEWS: Mate’s Rates this Australia Day weekend

January 23, 2015

*This offer is available from January 23, 2015 to end of trading on Australia Day, 2015.

Turn around the life of one of our many shelter animals and experience the true meaning of mateship with one of our incredible cats and dogs this Australia Day long weekend.

“We have so many deserving cats and dogs who need a forever home and what a better way to settle them in than a long weekend?”

With over 110 cats at both shelters seeking a home manager of shelter operations, Jodie Addamo said the summer season has seen more cats than ever come into our shelters than we have seen in a very long time.

“In warm weather cats breed at a higher rate, so we receive a significant increase in the number of cats and kittens coming into our care,” explained Ms Addamo. “We want to see as many of these delightful cats and kittens find loving, forever homes.”

Waiting six-months to be adopted is Red Phoenix is one of a number of long-term feline residents at the Home.

“We especially want to see our long term cats, adopted by the end of the weekend,” Ms Addamo said. “With the sheer number of cats we have at the moment, these guys have been overlooked through no fault of their own. There are simply so many cats and kittens to choose from.”
