People in Eastbourne who are thinking about adopting a cat can do so with increased confidence as the local Cats Protection has launched the ‘adopt with confidence’ pledge.
Mandy Clarke, from the charity, said that they are encouraging people to make them their first point of call when looking for a new pet as they have so many healthy and affectionate pets, reports eastbourneherald.co.uk.
The ‘adopt with confidence’ pledge aims to reassure new owners that their new cat has been given the highest standard of care.
Ms Clarke told the news provider: "[Owners] have the peace of mind that their cat will have been examined by a veterinary surgeon, microchipped, vaccinated, neutered if old enough and will also come with four week’s free insurance.
"We provide these benefits and treatments so people don’t have to worry about them following adoption, which is a big plus for money-conscious owners."
Cats Protection was founded in 1927. It rehomes and reunites around 52,500 cats with owners every year.
