The South Australia RSPCA Are Have An End Of Fur-Nancial Year Sale - And Cats Are Free!
If you've been pondering getting a pussycat pal - now might be the time!
RSPA South Australia shelters are waiving the $50 adoption fee for cats (that's those older than six months) for 20 days.
This include desexing, microchipping, vaccination and a vet check, for 20 days.
The end of fur-nancial year campaign kicks off on Monday and runs until June 30.
RSPCA SA head of animal operations Tim Charles said the aim was to find homes for 250 adult cats by June 30 year, as there is an abundance of cats in their care.
"Currently we have nearly 500 cats and kittens in our shelters and with winter already here, we desperately need to find at least half of them homes as soon as possible," Mr Charles said.
"It costs RSPCA more than $1,000 to vaccinate, microchip, desex, provide veterinary care and rehome each cat - all of which is funded by community donations - but the current overload situation is so serious that we have waived the normal $50 adoption fee to try to encourage more people to give one of our cats a home."
For those keen to take a kitten home, the adoption fee has also been dropped from $195 to $99.
