Charlottesville, Virginia: Now through August 31st, the SPCA is offering an outrageous deal on all Certified Pre-Owned Cats older than one year. From shorthair tabbies, tuxedos, Torties and Siamese, to longhair Maincoons, Calicos and more, there are plenty of makes and models to choose from at the SPCA, Purrin’ at Pantops, Petsmart at the Hollymead Center and the SPCA Rummage Store. Individual mileage might vary, but all come with the most adorable features and the softest upholstery. Best of all, these felines are available for no money down, zero percent financing, and absolutely NO PAYMENTS…ever! Four-paw drive and a 100,000-purr warranty are standard; all buyers will receive a CatFax history report. This deal even includes services normally costing hundreds of dollars: spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccinations, deworming, FIV/Felv testing, a free nose-to-tail inspection from participating vets, a bag or Science Diet cat food, an animal behavior CD and a lifetime of priceless love and companionship.
The warmer months are the breeding season for cats, inundating shelters with kittens available for adoption. “Because kittens are so cute, during this time, older cats in shelters are often overlooked,” explains Lisa Lane, Director of Marketing and Development for the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. “People fail to realize that our pre-owned cats are better than new! These pre-owned models often come pre-trained, they tend to be calmer and wiser; and because they are full grown, you know what you are getting. Cats don’t find themselves at a shelter because they are unreliable or a ‘lemon.’ Many have simply gotten lost or outlived their former owner.”
