Yarmouth SPCA urges you to make adoption your first choice
July 15, 2010
The Yarmouth SPCA is in urgent need of willing adoptive homes for dozens of cats and kittens that have come into care as stray, abandoned or surrendered animals in recent weeks. Many are surprise litters from unaltered pets or pets purchased through online classifieds or non-traditional retailers that are found to be pregnant.
"Every animal deserves a safe and loving home. The Nova Scotia SPCA and it's Yarmouth Branch is committed to being a no-kill animal welfare organization, which means that we need to be very proactive about promoting the importance of adoption and we need the support of every community to open their hearts and their homes to the thousands of animals that come into our care every year," said Executive Director Kristin Williams of the Nova Scotia SPCA Provincial Office. She added that "adoption saves two lives; the animal currently in our care and the next animal waiting to be saved."
This time of year is especially taxing on already limited volunteer and donated resources as dozens of litters are flooding in and challenging the capacity of the shelter and our volunteer foster homes.
