ADOPTION fees for cats and kittens at Campaspe Animal Shelter have been heavily reduced to $50.

Meow that’s good value.

Council said a dramatic oversupply of lost and surrendered cats and kittens at the shelter had warranted the need to reduce fees to free up space.

Public environments manager Kate Lemon said the shelter had more than 30 friendly felines in need of a loving home with more to come.

“Help clear the shelter, save a life and find your purr-fect companion today,’’ Ms Lemon said.

“Sadly at this time of year, as one cage empties, it immediately fills with another cat or kitten.’’

For the month of April, in a bid to move cats and kittens on to permanent loving homes, adoption fees have been reduced heavily to $50.

Council registration fees still apply.

“All cats and kittens are desexed, microchipped and vaccinated, and have been assessed as having good temperaments that make them suitable for re-homing,” Ms Lemon said.

The shelter has a variety of male and female cat breeds available to adopt.

“We encourage all those committed to giving a cat or kitten a forever home, to visit the Campaspe Animal Shelter during the April school holiday period, to take advantage of the price reduction while it lasts,” Ms Lemon said.

The shire’s animal shelter is open seven days a week at varying times, including throughout the school holiday period.
