Adult cat adoption for half price at SPCA

Romeo and Lovey are two of seven adult cats available for half price adoption at the Williams Lake BCSPCA up until July 26.

Romeo and Lovey are two of seven adult cats available for half price adoption at the Williams Lake BCSPCA up until July 26. Across B.C. branches are holding a cat adoption promotion, presented by Hill’s Science Diet.

“There aren’t many, but we still need to get them into homes,” said branch manager Liz Dighton Monday. “We usually have five to seven, which is about as many as we can keep in our adult cat room.”

All of the cats are sweethearts, Dighton added.

“Each cat has such a personality of their own, from the social butterfly that loves everyone to the other end of the spectrum — the slightly shy one that picks and chooses who she likes.”

Their ages range from one year to four years old, they have all been spayed and vaccinated.

“Hill’s Science Diet is excited to continue our long-term sponsorship of this special adoption event,” says Hill’s Pet Nutrition general manager Joe Giles. “The Hill’s Food, Shelter and Love partnership program with the BC SPCA and our support of this event is a natural extension of our mission: To help enrich and lengthen the special relationships between people and their pets. With the free bag of Science Diet we provide with every adoption, our hope is that new pet guardians will continue the feeding regimen the BC SPCA has started, for a lifetime of health and happiness for their pet.”

Each year, the BC SPCA rescues more than 15,000 cats and kittens throughout B.C.

With all the thunder and lightning storms this summer, the shelter in Williams Lake has had a constant intake of stray dogs, Dighton said.

Their owners show up to retrieve them, but every time there’s a storm, the staff and volunteers know they can expect to get some dogs.

Dighton also put in a plug for the SPCA’s annual pet calendar and encouraged anyone who has adopted a pet locally to submit photos for consideration to

“We will be accepting entries up until the middle of August,” she said.
