The Surrey branch of the BC SPCA has hundreds of kittens looking for homes

Kittens looking for homes

Ever thought of giving a furry bundle of joy a home?

No better time than now, say representatives at the Surrey branch of the BC SPCA.

They’re holding a special kitten adopt-a-thon Saturday from noon to 2:30 p.m. and encourage members of the public to come see the more than 220 cats and kittens available to good homes.

“We’ve got long-haired cats, short-haired cats, black cats, white cats, brown cats, tabbies, calicos and torties galore,” says branch manager Valerie Sigler.

“If you’ve been thinking about getting a kitten or a cat, now is a great time to come see the wonderful animals we have.”

The shelter, located at 6706 152 St., has 65 cats and kittens, as well as another 180 kittens in foster care in the community. Animals at the shelter can be viewed during regular visiting hours, while the foster kittens can be viewed during the adopt-a-thon. The shelter is also seeking temporary foster homes for mother cats with litters, orphaned kittens who need bottle feeding and for injured and adult cats.

The appeal comes at a time when BC SPCA branches across the province are dealing with an influx of kittens from summer litters. Call 604-597-5655 for more information.
