Good time to adopt a pet

Havelock North Village Press - - News -

We are part-way through the school hol­i­days now but it’s still a per­fect time to adopt a new fam­ily mem­ber while ev­ery­one is home and can spend qual­ity time with your new pet.

New pets need that bond­ing pe­riod so they get to know ev­ery­one in the fam­ily and their new sur­round­ings and start to un­der­stand that this is their new for­ever home.

What bet­ter time to do this than while chil­dren and par­ents are at home for the hol­i­days?

We have plenty of cats, kit­tens, pup­pies and a cou­ple of dogs all avail­able for adop­tion. Th­ese an­i­mals have come to us through no fault of their own. They de­serve a sec­ond chance and have so much love to give. Please give them a chance and make the SPCA your first choice to find a new pet.

All SPCA an­i­mals have been vet-checked, had at least one vac­ci­na­tion, flea and worm treat­ment, are de-sexed and mi­cro-chipped and once adopted we will reg­is­ter their de­tails with yours on the New Zealand Com­pan­ion An­i­mal Reg­is­ter to give you the best chance of be­ing re­united with your pet if they go miss­ing.

SPCAs do charge an adop­tion fee which helps us to­wards the cost of car­ing for the an­i­mals in need and get­ting them ready for adop­tion, how­ever this is still very good value for money and en­sures you take on a pet that has had all the ne­ces­si­ties done and with­out the worry of un­wanted kit­tens/pup­pies.

NEEDY: SPCAs across the country are full af­ter a boom­ing kit­ten sea­son.
