SPCA offers pick-a-price for cats

Thursday, Aug. 23 to Saturday, Aug. 25, adopters can choose an adult cat from any BC SPCA location – and name their own adoption fee.

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

“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 adds, “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.”

For more details on the Pick your Purr-fect Price event, visit spca.bc.ca to view all adoptable animals at SPCA locations across B.C. The Shuswap SPCA is located at 5850 Auto Road.
