The RSPCA Wants You to Adopt a Cat This Month
It's lowering its adoption fee to $100 for adult cats and $150 for kittens in an effort to free up space in its NSW shelters.
Because you're reading this, we know you're not someone who received a pet for Christmas, only to decide it wasn't for you. We know you're one of the good folks. You're probably wishing that you did receive a loveable animal as a gift, even if you already have one — or several — that you adore.
We understand your yearning, and so does RSPCA New South Wales. And, to find permanent homes for the many felines surrendered into its care from all over the state, it's lowering the adoption fee for both kittens and adult cats. If you'd like to welcome a tiny mouser into your abode, you'll pay $150. For a cat that's aged six months or older, you'll pay $100.
The initiative runs until Sunday, April 25. Although you can't put a price on the happiness that a new purring, slightly standoffish pet will bring, it's hoped that the low adoption fee will encourage people who have been thinking about adding a cat to their fam (and have considered it thoroughly) to make the commitment this month. And, you could adopt Snoopy, Cricket, Rosa or Ramjet — or any of this long list of cats that need a home.

The reduced adoption fees are available at all shelters across NSW, other than Petbarn locations and RSPCA volunteer branches. The adoption fees — which usually cost $230 for kittens and $180 for adult cats — help cover some of the costs of vaccines, training and microchipping for the animals.
There's more to pet adoption than overdosing on cuteness, of course, becase making the commitment to care for an animal is serious business. For further information, read RSPCA's adoption page and head to a shelter this month.
RSPCA NSW's cat adoption drive runs until Sunday, April 25 at all RSPCA NSW shelters.
