Cat adoption crisis – Gladstone Observer

DESPERATE times call for desperate measures.

Friends of RSPCA Gladstone have been forced to take the drastic move of saving no more unwanted cats and kittens from Gladstone Pound until they can successfully re-home the 60 plus cats and kittens they have at the moment in foster care.

It’s not a decision cat foster care co-ordinators Betty Bridge and Anita Coad have taken lightly but with so many cats up for adoption they are full to the brim.

Ms Coad said they must urgently find homes for the cats in their care before they take on any more from the pound.

“That means every cat at the pound will be put down until we can get our numbers down,” Ms Coad said.

“All our cats are now discounted until the end of February.”

The new discounted prices mean adult cats will be $100 instead of $150 and kittens will be $150 instead of $180.

“If you have room in your heart and home for one of our beautiful cats and you would like to help us save more cats’ lives please visit our next adoption day,” Ms Coad said.

Cats up for adoption can be viewed anytime otherwise visit the group’s next adoption day on Sunday between 9am-midday.

For further information phone Betty on 4979 3560 or Anita on 4973 7293.
