Give your love and adopt an adult cat this Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to profess your love; however, that doesn’t need to be limited to fellow humans.

Animal Welfare League Queensland is hoping the community will be struck by Cupid’s arrow and adopt an adult cat.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, adoption fees for adult cats have been reduced down to just $29 this week.

“We currently have more than 40 adult cats that are waiting for their second chance. We hope the loving spirit of St Valentine’s Day will inspire the public to consider adopting,” said Ms Phipps, Animal Welfare League Queensland State Rehoming Manager.

Animal Welfare League Queensland’s promise is to never euthanise a healthy, sociable or treatable animal in our care.

“The community plays an important role in assisting us to achieve this promise when they choose to adopt. There is no greater gift to an animal in our care than a loving home. When you adopt a pet through Animal Welfare League Queensland, you are providing that animal with a second chance at happiness,” said Ms Phipps.

While love might be in the air for humans this Valentine’s Day, Animal Welfare League Queensland is reminding people to have their pets desexed.

“Cats are prolific breeders in warm climates, with one female cat capable of having up to three litters a year. Cats can begin breeding at four months of age, live anywhere between 10 and 18 years and have up to six to eight kittens at a time. It’s a recipe for overpopulation if they aren’t desexed,” said Ms Phipps.

Animal Welfare League Queensland’s standard adoption processes still apply and all cats are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed.

Animal Welfare League Queensland has two Animal Rehoming Centres on the Gold Coast:

  • Gold Coast Animal Rehoming Centre, 1 Shelter Road, Coombabah
  • Beenleigh Animal Rehoming Centre, 2 Rossmans Road, Stapylton

The campaign runs from 10-16 February 2020, for more information on the cats available for rehoming head to awlqld.com.au.

These babies deserve to be rehomed, forever. My boy is 19 and still going pretty well. I wish I could get another but it’d be too stressful for my boy and a ‘new’ kitty. I most certainly would adopt a new companion if I could.
