Pick your Purr-fect Price

From Aug. 23 to 25 adopters can choose an adult cat from any BC SPCA location around the province.

ADOPT A PET from an SPCA in B.C. from Aug. 23 to 25 — and name your adoption fee.

The love and companionship of a cat is priceless, but from Aug. 23 to 25, adopters can choose an adult cat from any BC SPCA location around the province – and name their own adoption fee.

During the Pick your Purr-fect Price promotion, you set the fee and take home a beautiful new best friend.

“The BC SPCA takes in more than 17,000 homeless cats and kittens each year and summer is the peak season where our shelters are filled to capacity,” says Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA. “Summer is especially hard on adult cats because with so many kittens in the shelters people sometimes overlook the wonderful adult cats who have so much to offer.”

Chortyk says people who adopt cats from the SPCA are getting exceptional value, even without a special promotion.

“Our average cost to care for a cat during its stay is $784, which includes vaccinations, spaying or neutering, an identification tattoo, preventive treatment for internal and external parasites, any medical care or rehabilitation required, daily welfare monitoring, sheltering and feeding.”

She notes that a homeless cat can stay in SPCA care for anywhere from a few days to more than a year before finding a loving family.

“Our cats are a great value any time of the year, but during the Pick your Purr-fect Price promotion, the animals will be even more accessible to adopters as they choose their own adoption fee,” says Chortyk.

“Our goal is to find loving homes for as many adult cats as possible during the event. All of the usual adoption criteria will apply as we want to make sure that the animals are a right fit for their new home and that their needs will be met.”

As an added bonus all cats are also covered by six weeks pet insurance courtesy of Petsecure to ensure the health of your new pet during the critical rehoming period.
