Next training sessions for new volunteers
Are you keen to find out more about volunteering for Marlborough SPCA?
The next volunteer induction course will take place on Saturday 12 October at 2 pm here at the Foxes Island Road, SPCA Centre. Children under 14 years must have a parent or caregiver with them.
We also have an expression of interest form which you can fill out and return to the office.
Get your cat ready for spring!
“Now is the time to get ready and desex your cat – or to start putting money aside for the operation when your kitten reaches maturity” says Jess Monk, SPCA Animal Care Manager. At the first signs of spring all unspayed female cats from 5 to 6 months of age start to come into season and will mate. This means that there are big numbers of pregnant cats during the spring and early summer months.
“Owners need to be responsible and think ahead” Jess encourages. “Save yourself a lot of heartache and hassle and make a desexing appointment today with your vet’.
“It’s not only the female cats” she says, “the life of an unneutered male (or tom) cat is anything but a happy one. Tom cats define a territory with their odour and fight any cat which enters this territory. Injuries and abscesses result as well as all that caterwaulling. Neutering your tom cat will end all this.”
Discounts on Our Longer Stay Cats
We think all our SPCA cats are wonderful, precious individuals who would grace any home. Some of our longer stay residents are no exception - they are healthy, happy cats with their own personalities.
To fast track the cats into new homes we have discounted the price of all the residents of Hut 5 - this includes Biddy, Nova and Shamrock. Come and visit them - you would be adopting a super cat at a super price!
The cat's photos are on the main page. This offer is for a limited time only.
