Half-Price Adoptions to Help RSPCA WA Clear The Shelter
RSPCA WA is offering half-price adoptions on all animals from 1-7 October to make room at its shelter ahead of kitten season.
Each year, from mid-spring to late-summer, RSPCA WA is inundated with kittens, putting a huge strain on its Animal Care Centre in Malaga. In 2017, RSPCA WA cared for over 800 cats and kittens – a large percentage of these kittens were ‘unwanted’ litters surrendered to RSPCA WA by concerned members of the public.
RSPCA WA welcomes anyone who is ready for a furry new family member to visit its Animal Care Centre in Malaga this week and meet the animals who are waiting for a second chance.
Animals available for adoption from RSPCA WA are sterilised, microchipped, and fully up-to-date with vaccinations and parasite treatment. Standard adoption policy and procedures still apply.
Animals currently looking for forever homes include cats, dogs, rabbits, roosters, sheep and horses.
Comments attributed to Executive Manager Community Engagement Maree Daniels:
“There are currently more than 80 cats and kittens in RSPCA WA’s care – both in our shelter and out on foster care – so we really need to free up space and resources for the expected flood of kittens who will be arriving on our doorstep in the coming weeks.
“These young litters often arrive without their mum and have to be hand-reared by foster carers or staff – it’s a very busy time for RSPCA WA.
“For families who have decided the time is right for a new pet, we hope this half-price promotion will provide extra incentive to visit RSPCA WA and choose the rewarding experience of adopting a rescue animal.
“One animal we really want to find a home for this week is Diesel – a beautiful two-year-old Staffy who’s been in RSPCA WA’s care for 311 days.
“In his previous home, Diesel was left outside most of the time, so he’s missed out on a lot. He was also suffering with an itchy skin condition when he arrived at RSPCA, which has been successfully treated with medication and a special diet. This diet will need to continue in his new home.
“Diesel really hopes someone will fall in love with him this week and take him home before he reaches one year at RSPCA WA.”
