IT IS out with the new and in with the old at RSPCA Pets Place in Ballarat.
Manager Tanya Drakopoulos yesterday called for pet lovers to adopt older rather than younger cats when looking for a new pet.
Ms Drakopoulos said the Sebastopol headquarters housed 15 adult cats looking for new homes.
“People have had an interest in kittens rather than adult cats,” she said.
“We have quite a bit of a build-up with older cats and we want to give them a second chance.”
Until April 24, RSPCA Ballarat will waive the $85 adoption fee for adult cats more than four months old.
“They’re equally great companions, more independent and with fully formed personalities, you know what you’re getting,” Ms Drakopoulos said.
All RSPCA adoption animals are microchipped, desexed, health checked and behaviour tested.
