Explosion in number of kittens abandoned

Sunraysia Daily; Jono Pech; 19 December 2009

DOZENS of kittens saved from Mildura animal shelter are in need of foster homes.

The number of cats delivered to the animal shelter in November this year was 91, which is 49 more than for November last year.

Elizabeth Linklater from Gol Gol is working with Sunraysia Animal Rehousing Group (SARG) to find foster homes for dozens of kittens saved from the pound.

She said Mildura pound was becoming overrun with kittens and she was looking to house them after having their vet work done through the Victorian Dog Rescue organisation.

“Some people have sponsored them so they can be re-homed with a pensioner who can’t afford the vet fee,” she said.

“Two litters went on Saturday to Melbourne to Victorian Dog Rescue, but I’m trying to start off re-homing them locally in Mildura.

“I’ve got two litters of kittens now that are absolutely adorable, and a few adult cats too.

“They’re the sort of ones we’re looking at re-homing with all their vet work up to date.

“For a male kitten it’s about $150 and female about $180, which is just covering the vet fees.
