Share the Warmth: 267 adoptions since May 5

June 1, 2015
Share the Warmth - final tally

Winter is here and for 267 fantastic felines, they are spending the first day of the season with their new families. This fantastic outcome is thanks to all of you who adopted, fostered and advocated during our Share the Warmth campaign!

At the beginning of May our North Melbourne and Campaspe shelters were bursting at the seams with more than 135 cats and kittens up for adoption and many more patiently waiting for their opportunity to be adopted.

To help us find homes for the marvellous moggies in our care, we called on you to adopt, foster and advocate for these cats and kittens looking for a home.

The response from the community has been fantastic. Since Share the Warmth started on May 5 we have seen:

  • 39 kittens and 33 cats adopted from our Campaspe shelter
  • 121 kittens and 74 cats adopted from our North Melbourne shelter
  • That means, around 67 fabulous felines were adopted each week for the month of May!
