RSPCA Broken Hill halves feline adoption fees!


Stoli is $60 to adopt from RSPCA’s Broken Hill Shelter
 From 21st November through 2nd December, RSPCA’s Broken Hill Shelter will cut feline adoption fees in half. With kitten season in full swing, RSPCA Shelter staff hopes the reduced adoption fee will help them rehome 30 felines currently in their care.

During this time, the following adoption fees will apply*:

Kittens up to twelve months old - $80
Adult cats up to six years old - $60
Senior cats over six years old - $40

“Summer and spring are always busy times for us, particularly when it comes to kittens,” said RSPCA Broken Hill Shelter Supervisor Merridy Wall. “Right now we’ve got over 20 kittens waiting to find new homes.”

The RSPCA reminds the public that pets are a long-term commitment and should be a considered purchase, not an impulse buy.

“Owning a pet can be a big responsibility,” said Ms Wall. “But for those people who are ready to commit to a pet, we hope this initiative will encourage their decision to come to the RSPCA before looking elsewhere."

Cats adopted from the RSPCA are behaviour assessed, desexed, microchipped, health checked, vaccinated and up to date on their flea and worming treatments.

The RSPCA Broken Hill Shelter is located on South Road and is open six days a week (closed Sundays) for adoptions. To view animals available for adoption, visit http://www.adoptapet.com.au/.

*Reduced fees apply to felines located at the Broken Hill Shelter only. Standard adoption processes apply.
