Clear the Shelter / Back to School Cat Special
August 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - August 19, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
This is the last week to adopt a great Mobile SPCA cat or kitten and take advantage of half-off their adoption fees. All cats and kittens come with food, adoption information and, this weekend, some Hill’s Science Diet bling! All cats have had age appropriate vaccines, been dewormed, vet checked, fixed, tested, have had flea prevention and are microchipped.
For the past several weeks the Mobile SPCA has been offering our great – altered and ready to be adopted – cats and kittens at half-off adoption fees in an effort to divert cats and kittens from entering the municipal shelters. Cats normally do not do well in municipal shelters. If they are lost their owners rarely look for them at municipal shelters; only 2 – 5% of cats are reclaimed while up to 30% of dogs are reclaimed from shelters.And cats do not like change. Change for cats – a new environment, new people, new animals, even the way their kennels are cleaned- means stress and stress means the cats will most likely come down with a virus further reducing their chance of getting out of the shelter and into a loving home. During the summer when numbers of kittens are the highest, the Mobile SPCA maintains a waiting list of up to 200 cats and kittens at a time. We do our best to get them adoption ready and move them into homes as quickly as possible!
Take advantage of this great adoption special this weekend. Adopt one! Adopt two! Three’s good! Cats love another cat buddy.
While cats and kittens are available at PetSmart on Airport and McGregor during regular business hours, our volunteers and staff will have even more cats and kittens at the store on Saturday from 10 to 2. The Mobile SPCA will have cats, kittens, dogs and puppies for adoption Saturday from 9 to noon at our shelter on Zeigler Cir W.
