Get your winter snuggles at Cat Adoption Day!

Greater Shepparton City Council is encouraging community members to find a perfect companion for the winter and give one of the many cats and kittens currently at the Shepparton Animal Shelter a forever loving home.

In Summary

  • Cat Adoption Day: Saturday 1 June, 10am-2pm, 125 Wanganui Road, Shepparton
  • Adoption fees reduced: $30 for cats over 12 months, $100 for kittens
  • Over 40 cats and kittens seeking homes
  • Importance of keeping cats indoors during winter emphasised

The Shelter will be hosting a Cat Adoption Day on Saturday 1 June from 10am to 2pm at 125 Wanganui Road, Shepparton.

Adoption fees for cats over 12 months of age have been reduced to only $30, whilst the adoption fee for kittens is $100. No appointments are necessary, just turn up during the specified times for a meet and greet.

This will be the second Cat Adoption Day of the year, with the Shelter once again at cat-pacity with over 40 cats and kittens waiting to find a home. 

Adopting not only changes the life of the cat you adopt, it also frees up space in the Shelter so they can take in new animals in need.

Council’s Manager Environment Sharon Terry advised community members to keep their feline friends home this winter and be mindful of the cat curfew.

“Greater Shepparton has a 24 hour cat curfew, so all cats must stay at home. Keeping your cat inside will keep them warm and safe, and since most cats love to cuddle up to stay warm, your lap or the couch is the ideal place,” she said.

Animal Shelter staff encourage people planning to attend the day to check out the available cats online on Council’s website and choose their favourite feline friend. There is also an online pet adoption questionnaire which can be completed before you get to the Shelter to save time on arrival.

All cats have been vet checked, desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, treated for worms and fleas and are ready to take home on the day. Don’t forget to bring a carrier to take your new furry friend home, or you can purchase one from the Shelter on the day.
