The BC SPCA has been saving animals in need all summer from dangerous situations and it's starting to get crowded. As of Monday, the BC SPCA has over 1000 cats and kittens up for adoption. Many of the adorable friends were rescued from serious animal hoarding situations and they need your love ASAP.\nLorie Chortyk, the spokesperson for the BC SPCA, told Narcity that many of the cats currently up for adoption have come from hoarding or other situations where cats have been neglected. "We’ve had a number of very large intakes of cats from cruelty investigations recently," she explained. These animals are often quite fearful of people so it takes longer to get them ready for new owners. That said, over 1000 cats and kittens in BC SPCAs are now ready to go to loving homes.\nChortyk told us that they've had many intakes of 100 to 150 cats at one time. "We deal with a lot of people who struggle with animal hoarding, so a lot of the times those animals can be from one location," she continued. "We have done a record number of large-scale cat intakes this year," said Chortyk. As a result, the number of cats in the care of the BC SPCA is extraordinarily high.\nView this post on Instagram Sweet as can be, Addie (ID 492528) hopes to be the apple of your eye!

Though this is wonderful and allows the SPCA to save more animals, it does, unfortunately, put a strain on their resources and these little kitties need homes right away.\n"They’ve been through so much already, so we always want to get them into loving homes as quickly as possible," Chortyk said. "We’ve got amazing animals up for adoption."\nView this post on Instagram “Really?” -Mushy (ID 483067) #BCSPCA #AdoptBCSPCA . . . . . #catsofinstagram #cat #cats_of_instagram #catstagram #catlover #catsoftheday #instacat #catmemes #animals #grumpycat A post shared by BC SPCA (@bcspca) on Apr 14, 2019 at 8:31am PDT\nChortyk hopes that any B.C. residents considering bringing a cat into their home will look first to their local shelter.
