An adoption day is being held this weekend to help find forever homes for cats who are currently living with foster carers.

The event is being held on Sunday, January 27, at Johnston’s Veterinary Clinic, which is based at 73, Northampton Road, Wellingborough, from midday to 2pm.

Helen Watt from the Northamptonshire branch of the RSPCA, said: “Johnson Vets are just one of the local practices who support our work and have offered the use of their premises to help to re-home some of the cats we currently have in foster care throughout the county.

“As the Northamptonshire branch does not have a centre currently, all cats, rabbits and small furries are cared for in foster homes by fantastic and dedicated volunteers, this can often make the re-homing process difficult as potential adopters often like to view a variety of animals before making a decision.

“Many of our foster cats will be there looking for some love and a new forever home along with details of the dogs, horses and other animals available to be re-homed.

“Bertie, the cat who came into our care with severe burns on his back, will also be there.

“It’s a great opportunity for people to see the nicer side of animal welfare, and to have the opportunity to see just some of the animals that have come into our care with injuries, through neglect, or come from vulnerable situations in the county, but now recovered and ready to find a new forever home.”

All animals can be reserved on the day, but home checks and adoption procedures will be completed after the event and before any of the animals go to a new home.
