BC SPCA is offering all the love for half the price with it’s Half Price Love cat adoption event this week.

Presented by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, SPCA adoption locations in the province will allow potential pet guardians to adopt cats and rabbits for half the price of the usual adoption fees until July 20.

“During this time of year, we always see an influx of animals at all our branches throughout the province,” BC SPCA general manager of community relations Lori Chortyk said in a release. “We want to end the wait for the animals in our shelters who are looking for loving homes by offering a reduced adoption fee.”

Currently, there are 1,684 cats and kittens in BC SPCA care across the province.

The BC SPCA is also caring for 118 rabbits in shelters throughout BC, with 50 per cent of them coming into care as a result of cruelty investigations.
