The adult cat adoption fee at the local branch of the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is being waived for seniors from Wednesday to Friday this week in an effort to reduce the number of furry felines at the shelter.
The Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry OSPCA branch has 10 adult cats looking for a home, says animal care coordinator, Julie Bourgon. She estimates there are also about 15 kittens housed at the shelter.
“The room is always full,” she says.
“Right now, we’re seeing a lot of cats coming in. The next couple of months is probably our busiest time.”
