SHARE THE WARMTH: 419 adoptions with two days to go!

June 29, 2015

For many of us the pinnacle of happiness is a warm hug from a loved one. So far through our Share the Warmth campaign 419 cats and kittens are now sharing warm hugs of happiness with their new owners!

If you have been thinking of adopting a charismatic cat or a kind kitten, but have been holding off, now might be the right time to adopt a new member into your family. We are still bursting at the seams with a large number of cats and kittens looking for a new home. Could you be their purrfect match?

Until June 30, that’s tomorrow, we are waiving the adoption fee for all adult cats six months and over and halving the adoption fee to $85 for kittens under six months. Each cat is desexed, microchipped, wormed, vaccinated and vet checked, which equals more than $300 of vet care included in each cat’s adoption.

Remember, if you can’t adopt, you can still help us Share the Warmth. We are always on the lookout for dedicated foster carers who can provide a temporary, loving, caring home for the wonderful animals in our care that may need some time out from the busy shelter environment. If you would like to find out more information about becoming a foster carer with The Lost Dogs’ Home visit https://dogshome.com/support-our-work/pet-fostering/

You can also use the power of social media or good old word of mouth to advocate for the fantastic felines in our care looking for a home this winter. Check out dogshome.com/cat-adoption to see the cats and kittens currently waiting to find their forever home and spread the word!

Until June 30, there will be no adoption fee for adult cats aged six months and over, and 50 per cent off the adoption fee for kittens less than six months of age.

Please note: Renters will need to provide a Rental Agreement showing approval to keep a cat. To receive the discount, you will need to complete our Pet Licence Test at our shelter or online.

How you can help

  • Adopt: View our terrific range of cats and kittens at dogshome.com or 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.
