The ISPCA is appealing to members of the public to consider adopting a cat or kitten if they are considering getting a new pet.
ISPCA Public Relations Manager, Carmel Murray said: “We are struggling to find new owners to adopt so many gorgeous cats and kittens and our catteries in Longford and Donegal are full to capacity, with a waiting list of more cats and kittens to be admitted. For a limited time, we are reducing our adoption donation to €35 for mature cats and €25 for kittens until 10th October 2021. All cats and kittens are vet checked, vaccinated, treated for parasites, litter trained, neutered/spayed (kittens when of age) so even a small adoption donation will help us cover some of our veterinary costs”.
Carmel added: “Cats and kittens are naturally independent, making them perfect companions for people with busy lifestyles and they love nothing more than to sit on a lap to be cuddled or lounge in front of a warm fire”.
Many ISPCA rescued cats have been left behind when their owners moved house or were no longer willing to look after them. In other cases, cats and kittens were dumped, lost or their owners had sadly passed away.
The ISPCA are urging pet owners to spay or neuter their cats and kittens as early as possible to prevent accidental and unwanted litters. In nearly all cases, spaying and neutering have overwhelmingly positive benefits:
