Cats seeking cat lovers

The Lycoming County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is full to capacity with cats looking for homes. There are 150 cats available for adoption and almost that many more on the SPCA waiting list. In an effort to entice potential adoptions, the SPCA is offering special pricing throughout the summer.

For the months of July and August, an adult cat may be adopted for a donation of the adopter’s choosing, or two kittens may be adopted for the price of one. All cats adopted from the SPCA are vaccinated, treated for fleas, leukemia tested, microchipped and either spayed or neutered.

“There are so many wonderful cats awaiting their forever homes” said Victoria Stryker, SPCA executive director. “It’s like walking into an ice cream shop; there are so many to choose from you might just have to have two.”

Visitors are encouraged to go to the SPCA facility at 2805 Reach Road and check out the numerous cats that are available. Once there, potential adopters are asked to complete an adoption application then they may visit the cats. There is a communal room where multiple cats are housed and visitors may sit and see which cats visit with them. Or they may go into the visiting room where staff will bring out the cats they choose to visit and play with. By spending time with the available cats, visitors will determine which personality suits their lifestyle.

Photos of available cats can be seen on the SPCA website at, but personal visits are much more fun.
