RSPCA South Australia is holding a pop-up adoption event this weekend to help find furrever homes for cats in their care.
Set to be held in the RSPCA’s Kidman Park op shop, felines and pre-loved fashion will combine for the weekend.
With 700 cats and kittens currently in need of a new family, just 52 short of the RSPCA’s record, it is hoped that the pop-up event will catch the eye of those with a big heart, and the time to care for a new best friend.
Head of the RSPCA’s cat-care team Jacky Barrett said that among the cats needing a home is 19-year-old Pippin, the oldest cat currently in their care.
“Pippin’s been with us for nearly 100 days, much of that time living in foster care with a staff member who has a soft spot for senior cats,” Barrett said.
“This affectionate old girl is living proof that age is just a number – she’s able to jump up and down from platforms easily, is very loving and just wants to be involved in everything.
“She’s very active and loves attention, so she’d be happiest with owners who are home a lot.”
The RSPCA team is aiming to find new homes for 100 cats, including Pippin, this weekend.
Aside from benefiting those animals, achieving this goal will also reduce the strain on RSPCA SA resources, as the organisation enters its busiest time of the year.
You can head to the RSPCA store at Kidman Park on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. With Christmas just around the corner, there is no better time to adopt a new furry friend.
