FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – If you’ve wanted a cat, now is the perfect chance.
From July 19th to July 26th, the SPCA’s across British Columbia will be selling adult cats for 50% off the regular price.
The North Peace SPCA has 13 adult cats in the shelter. With the half off promotion, that is just $54 plus tax and microchip fee.
Lorie Chortyk, BC SPCA general manager, community relations, says this is the perfect time for someone wanting a cat to adopt one.
“We’re hoping this promotion, which offers 50% off the usual adoption fees for all adult cats, will encourage anyone who has been considering cat adoption to take the next step and make it reality.”
There are also several benefits apparently when adopting a more mature cat over a kitten, as they’re calmer and more settled, litter trained, fully grown, and their personalities are already developed, which makes it easier for potential adopters so they are fully aware of what they’re getting.
