SPCA appeal to cat carers after Glasgow center reaches capacity
The SPCA needs to relocate a large number of its cats to free up space to support kittens across Glasgow.
The SPCA is making an urgent appeal to cat carers in the Glasgow area as their Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Center reached capacity this week.
The Society has seen an influx of pets in recent weeks and now has over 100 cats at the centre. Unfortunately, many of these animals cannot be rehomed immediately due to their circumstances or medical issues.
Repatriation and foster care manager Anna O’Donnell said: ‘We are currently caring for a large number of cats and are in desperate need of emergency foster care placements to free up more cats. space in our center.
“If we can’t place some of the cats in foster care, we may not be able to admit any more at this time. This is a situation we don’t want to find ourselves in because we never want to refuse an animal that needs our help.
“We are looking for foster families who are happy to keep a cat as an indoor cat and who currently have no other cats in their home.
“We are also looking for a sedentary environment for these animals, so no big changes in the house planned like holidays, moving or similar in the next six months.
“We appreciate that it’s a big ask for people to open their homes to an animal at such short notice, but you really would be making a huge difference not just to the cat you adopt, but to the many cats we have. then we could continue. to help by having more space in our cattery.
Anyone interested in applying to adopt a cat can do so via the Scottish SPCA website; or by calling 03000 999 999.
