SHARE THE WARMTH UPDATE: Five days, 61 adoptions!

May 11, 2015

Last week we launched our Share the Warmth campaign in response to the high number of felines in our care. We asked you to help us find homes for the cats and kittens currently up for adoption and you haven’t disappointed!

Since the campaign started on May 5, a total of 61 cats and kittens have been adopted across our North Melbourne and Campaspe shelters.

After a great initial response, we look forward to seeing even more of our charismatic cats find their forever homes, including our long term adoption candidates Red Phoenix and Dudley just to name two!

To view our lovely adoption candidates visit http://dogshome.com/cat-adoption/

Share the Warmth (May 5 – May 31)

  • Adoption fees waived for cats six months and older – normally $95
  • 50 per cent off the adoption fee for kittens six months and younger – normally $170, now $85

All of our adoption candidates come desexed, microchipped, wormed, vaccinated and vet checked, which equals more than $300 of vet care, included with each cat’s adoption.

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. Visit your nearest shelter to meet them in person — our staff are keen to find you your perfect match!

 

  • 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.

 

  • Advocate: If you cannot adopt, why not advocate for a cat currently seeking a home? Share adoption candidate profiles via your Facebook page, email or via the good ol’ word of mouth!
