Council is joining forces with local rehoming organisations to find the purrfect new home for rescue cats and kittens.
The Cat Adoption Day is on this Saturday (25 February) with residents looking to add a feline friend to their family able to meet cats and kittens available for adoption from 9am to noon.
Council has held successful adoption days since 2019, with more than 300 cats and dogs rehomed through the initiatives.
Mayor Bob Manning said the Cat Adoption Day was a way Council could support local rehoming organisations that do the heavy lifting when it comes to finding new homes for otherwise unwanted pets.
“Cats make great companions and are known for their loving nature,” Cr Manning said.
“But, unfortunately, many do end up lost, abandoned, or surrendered to Council.
“Putting down animals is always our last resort and we work closely with local rehoming organisations to find new loving homes for cats and kittens that come into our care.
“These groups not only take unwanted pets from Council, but members of the public and stray cats that are handed in to vets. They do an amazing job.
“By finding homes for cats already in foster care, we can help them to continue to help our community.”
The Cat Adoption Day will be held at the new Animal Care & Education Centre at 55-57 Links Drive, Woree.
