Two for the money, go cat, go

THE Animal Welfare League's Ipswich shelter is bursting with cats and the centre is unable to take in more until their current animals are re-homed.

So until Saturday, April 28, the centre is offering a bargain on adult cats, adopting them out for only $49 - less than half the usual price, or effectively two for the price of one.

AWLQ's marketing manager Brooke Whitney said all breeds of cats from one year and up were part of the feline frenzy.

"The public will be able to adopt an adult cat that has been desexed, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed from our Ipswich, Beenleigh or Gold Coast shelters for just $49.

"We hope this promotion will re-home lots of adult cats who have been at the shelter for far too long and deserve to be in a home with people that love them," she said.

"Because we have so many kittens due to unwanted litters from un-desexed cats our adult cats are often overlooked.

"We are hoping this promotion will give them an added boost in finding a new home."

To check out the available cats visit the shelter at 6 Hooper St, West Ipswich, phone 3202 4688 or go online to awlqld.com.au.
