Summer colds stink! At capacity of cats, PSPCA offers half off adoption of felines with summer colds
All already altered cats and kittens with upper respiratory infections half off; all sent home with medication free of charge
The summer cold season has arrived at the Pennsylvania SPCA; the shelter is full to its capacity with cats experiencing upper respiratory infections. In an effort to place these feline friends in loving homes where they will recover faster, the PSPCA is running an adoption promotion beginning Friday, July 7 – Sunday, July 9, 350 East Erie Avenue, Philadelphia, PA.
During the promotion, already altered cats and kittens with upper respiratory infections will be available for 50% off their adoption fee. The animals will also be sent home with medication free of charge.
An upper respiratory infection is very common in animals that have spent time in the shelter environment, and is essentially the same as a common cold in humans. The cats will experience sniffling, sneezing and coughing, and will recover quickly with medication and love.
The PSPCA has shut down all cat intakes, with the exception of those rescued by the organization’s Humane Law Enforcement department, due to capacity and illness of the current population. The sooner these cats and kittens can find homes to recover, the sooner the reopen intakes to save more lives.
