SHARE THE WARMTH UPDATE: 202 cats and kittens adopted in 20 days

May 25, 2015

On 5 May we launched our Share the Warmth campaign, appealing to the community to help us find loving new homes for our feline friends. We are thrilled that so many families have opened their homes and hearts, with 202 cats and kittens adopted since the campaign started!

We still have many wonderful felines patiently waiting for that special someone to come along and sweep them off their paws. Our North Melbourne and Campaspe shelters are bursting at the seams with cats and kittens looking for new homes. With a wide variety of personality types, there is sure to be the perfect feline companion for you.

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 under six months – 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 help you find 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!
