SPCA Auckland's half-price adoption campaign has tails wagging after more than 500 animals found new homes.
The charity was overrun with animals in early April and became concerned that it may potentially be unable to provide shelter for further animals in need.
"So we offered people the chance to adopt a pet for life at half price for three weeks," said SPCA Auckland CEO Christine Kalin. "I'm thrilled to say it was a huge success."
During the campaign, the 508 animals adopted included 229 kittens, 167 cats, 36 rabbits, 34 dogs, and 29 puppies, plus chickens, pigeons, guinea pigs, and a goat.
"So we want to say 'thank you' to all the wonderful people who responded to the call and adopted an animal. Due to their kindness and generosity we now have the capacity to respond to animals who need shelter, treatment, love, and care, while they get ready for their new home for life," said Ms Kalin.
Animals adopted from the SPCA are all vet checked, de-sexed, micro-chipped, wormed, treated for fleas, and had their initial vaccinations – and there are plenty who still need new homes.

Hmm are we missing the point a bit...500 animals when at half price, perhaps you need to reevaluate your regular pricing amount as that may well see you moving animals alot quicker....
