The City’s Animal Care and Adoption Centre received an early visit from Santa, through an anonymous donor who has once again made it possible for 36 cats to be adopted to loving homes, free of charge.
Beginning noon on Wednesday, Nov. 27 the cost of the first 36 approved cat adoptions will be covered by the anonymous donation. The shelter is extending its hours on Wednesday, Nov. 27 to be open to the public from noon to 6:30 p.m.
The shelter has been at capacity for a few weeks and by adopting a pet now, you can save a life. Browse the cats and kittens that are up for adoption on the City’s Adoptable Pets webpage.
Each cat adoption includes:

  • full medical examination by our staff veterinarian
  • spaying/neutering
  • first vaccination
  • felv test
