Finding homes for furry felines a labour of love for RSPCA WA this weekend

With a large variety of friendly felines looking for their forever home, RSPCA WA is launching a 'Labour of Love' campaign this coming Labour Day long weekend to find homes for as many cats as possible.

The rehoming campaign sees adoption prices reduced to $45 for cats and $65 for kittens.

RSPCA WA Executive Manager, Community Engagement, Maree Daniels said "For anyone who's already been thinking of bringing a new four-legged feline in to their family, we hope this weekend will see some of them encouraged to visit the cats and kittens we have available and consider adoption as the best choice for a new pet".

"All of the cats and kittens we have available for rehoming have been sterilised, vaccinated, microchipped and given a full vet check, so they are all ready to make wonderful additions to the family.

"Our cattery is full and we are hopeful we can re-home as many as possible this weekend, which will in turn enable us to rescue and provide care for more neglected cats and kittens in the weeks to come.

"Potential owners will need to complete an adoption application and meet with our experienced Adoptions Team who will ensure we are able to match the most suitable cat for each family's situation."

The special price - available only from Saturday 5 March to Monday 7 March - includes sterilisation, vaccination, microchip and health check which RSPCA WA provides to all animals in its care.

RSPCA WA's Animal Care Centre is located at 108 Malaga Drive, Malaga, and will be open from 10.00am to 5.00pm across the weekend including the Labour Day public holiday on Monday.

RSPCA WA relies on donations and community support to generate more than 90% of the funds required to sustain its animal protection work, as only six percent is covered by a grant from the State Government.
