SPCA begins ‘Cinco de Meow’ adoption campaign

The Lycoming County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is celebrating “Cinco de Meow,” a holiday unique to the shelter where adopters will receive discounts for adult cat adoptions.

For the entire week, now through Saturday, adopters will have the opportunity to adopt two cats or kittens for the price of one.

Anyone adopting two adult cats from the Four Seasons room will only be charged $5.

Adopters also may choose a free gift of a toy for their new four-legged friends.

Each cat adoption includes the initial shots, flea treatment, lifetime microchip identification with one year registration, 30 days free pet health insurance with a valid email, spaying or neutering, a cardboard carrier and a free toy.

“Our shelter is full to capacity with animals awaiting adopters.” said Victoria Stryker, executive director. “We need to find forever homes for our four legged companions to make room for more yet to come.”

Potential adopters are invited to visit the shelter and complete an application.

Once approved, they will be able to visit with a cat or kitten to make sure it is the right fit for their lifestyle.
