Cats and kittens find love in sale success

Date published: 15 March 2021

Cats and kittens were the love language for February with 55 felines finding new homes during the Valentine’s Day Cat Sale.

Community Health, Safety and Environmental Sustainability Committee chairperson Maurie Soars said it is heart-warming to see the community adopting animals through the Animal Care and Adoption Centre (ACAC).

“It is really touching to think of these 55 cats and kittens finding their fur-ever homes and families to care for them,” Cr Soars said.

“While the sale is over, we do still have pets available for adoption through the ACAC and I would love to see them all go to loving homes.

“So, if you have considered getting a pet for your family, I’d really encourage you to jump on to Council’s website and see the beautiful range of cats and dogs looking for their new beginning.

All animals adopted from the ACAC are desexed, microchipped, wormed and have had their first vaccination.

Cr Soars also reminded residents that the March free microchipping day is being held next week.

“While any animal that is adopted from the ACAC is already microchipped, we know that many pet owners may still need to microchip their furry friends,” he said.

“The free microchipping day for March is being held next Wednesday, and I’d urge anyone wanting to be a responsible pet owner book in by calling Council on 13 48 10.

“The only eligibility criteria is that dogs must be registered, and cats approved with Council.”
