Felines find homes

Records were broken last weekend when 88 cats and kittens were adopted at The Lost Dogs’ Home Cranbourne pop-up adoption on Saturday 14 April.
Despite the rain and wind, families from across the south east came to open their homes and hearts to a pet in need, with the added bonus of half-price adoption fees.
While Cranbourne represented the highest number of adopters, some people travelled from as far as Werribee.
Demand was so high that more cats and kittens needed to be transferred from the Home’s shelter in North Melbourne.
“What a wonderful feeling knowing that 88 cats and kittens are now snuggled up in new homes,” said Dr David Cunliffe, general manager of animal welfare at The Lost Dogs’ Home.
“This is the highest number of adoptions to take place at any of our adoption events at The Lost Dogs’ Home. We’re thrilled to be able to help more people experience the joys of pet adoption.
“We send our deepest thanks to all the kind people who adopted and changed the life of a homeless cat or kitten. We have no doubt your new pet will reward you with a lifetime of companionship and cuddles.”
Adoptions have now closed at the Home’s Cranbourne shelter. The cats who missed out on being adopted over the weekend will be moved to the adoptions centre at The Lost Dogs’ Home in North Melbourne, where they will stay until they find a new home.
Cats and kittens available for adoption can be viewed online at dogshome.com.
