NORTH Wex­ford SPCA is strug­gling to cope with the de­mand for its services and their cat­tery is full to over­flow­ing.

As a re­sult, the ded­i­cated vol­un­teers from NWSPCA held a kit­ten adop­tion day in Maxi Zoo last week­end and 14 of their lit­tle furry friends found a for­ever home.

‘We’ve had firm of­fers of homes for 14 kit­tens,’ said Rosie McKenna, cat­tery foster co­or­di­na­tor. ‘We also met lots of peo­ple who might be in­ter­ested in adopt­ing at some time in the fu­ture.’

The only long term so­lu­tion for this on­go­ing prob­lem is for more peo­ple to spay or neuter their cats, but in the mean­time NWSPCA foster care team try to care for as many cats as they can. ‘The day was a great suc­cess,’ added Rosie. NWSPCA would like to thank He­len and all the staff at Maxi Zoo for the sup­port; cat­tery vol­un­teers Meg, Lisa, Mary, Ker­rie and Yvette for their hard work; and Zack and Libby who helped with kit­ten han­dling.

To check out some of the cats and kit­tens avail­able for adop­tion, call NWSPCA on 087 639 2531 for a view­ing.
