Animal Welfare League NSW and Kellyville Pets have had to cancel Saturday’s I am a Cat Lover Adoption Day at Kellyville (June 26).
The latest Covid-19 restrictions will push the event to later in the year at Kellyville Pets.
However, cats and kittens are still available to adopt through Animal Welfare League NSW.
The Animal Welfare League has found homes for more than 2160 animals so far, this year, has desexed over 7000 pets and treated nearly 7000.
So far, this financial year it has 765 cats come into its care.
They are surrendered for a variety of reasons including, owners moving home and are not able to take their pets along with them, cat allergies, or the owners may pass away.
Last month the Animal Welfare League NSW mobile vet truck was in the area and offered Hawkesbury and Penrith Council residents with a pension or a concession card vet services.
During the two-day community outreach event 248 domestic cats and dogs (and a rabbit) were given health checks by the experienced Animal Welfare League NSW veterinary team. There were 121 microchips issued at no cost to the
owners. A total of 239 vaccinations were administered over the two days at heavily discounted rates.
Naomi Sinclair, Shelter Manager at Animal Welfare League NSW says, “Animal Welfare League NSW has a stringent evaluation process to make sure every cat or kitten is adopted into a family most suitable for it.
“The lifestyle of their potential new owners must be a match for the cats/kittens’ personalities and individual needs. It is crucial to educate members of the public on the requirements and responsibilities of owning a cat before adoption, to ensure both cat/kitten and the new owner are set up for success.”
Animal Welfare League NSW is based at Kemp’s Creek. To find out more about all the pets it has up for adoption visit www.awlnsw.com.au
