If you have room in your home and your heart for a new furry friend, the BC SPCA just made expanding your family a little easier with half-price cat adoptions.

The promotion on adult cat adoption takes place from May 25 to 31 in BC SPCA shelters across the province.

“We’re offering 50 per cent off adoption fees for all adult cats, which is a
great incentive for people who have been thinking about adopting and it allows us
to find homes more quickly for the incredible cats in our care,” says Lorie Chortyk,
BC SPCA general manager of communications.

“This spring we have taken an overwhelming number of cats into care through hoarding cases and other rescue situations, so our shelters are very full.”

Those who do choose to adopt adult animals are giving them another chance at life by welcoming them into their homes — a chance that many of these animals unfortunately don’t get.

“Older cats tend to be more calm. They’ve also been litter box trained and their personalities are developed, so it is easier to find just the right match, ” continued Chortyk.

Last year, the BC SPCA found new loving homes for nearly 10,000 cats and
kittens throughout the province.

Here are some of the adorable cats that are currently up for adoption:
