Saturday July 13th from 10am - 4pm 1 Neath Road Neath

HVAFARC is hosting our third Cat Adoption Day. We will be open for cat meets on July 13th (between 10AM - 4PM only) please take a moment to consider the older ones, the nervous ones, those that aren't so keen for a pat from a stranger... When you earn their love it's worth it!
Remember if you would like to meet a specific cat please make an appointment so that cat is reserved for you, these appointments will be first thing in the morning due to previous experience so if you don't show the cat doesn't miss out on a potential home! If you'd like to let your heart, choose, please feel free to come at any time between 10AM - 4PM.

Most of our cats are listed on the website (www.hvafarc.com.au) so you can read more about them, you can also see them all on Facebook. For more information please contact [email protected]
