Coldstream Animal Aid looks for loving homes for cats | Leader

Coldstream cat adoption

Cat Adoption / November 29, 2020

WE’RE not kitten you, there are more than 100 pawesome feline friends ready for adoption at Coldstream’s Animal Aid.

The Killara Rd shelter has been overwhelmed by the influx of kittens dropped off at the organisation and will discount adoption fees on cats and kittens from March 1 to 15.

Animal Aid chief executive Mark Menze said the animal welfare organisation had too many cats and kittens on its hands and needed loving homes.

“We have more felines on hand than we have room for, ” Mr Menze said.

“So if you are considering bringing a cat or kitten into your home, please make adoption your first option.”

He said from the start of the kitten season in October, about 1000 kittens and cats had been dropped off at Animal Aid’s shelters across Victoria.

Mr Menze said adopters would receive a 50 per cent discount on older cats and 25 per cent off fees on kittens younger than six months.

“All adopted kittens and cats are desexed, microchipped, have received parasite treatment and come with an identification tag, ” he said.
