Some furry friends need forever homes.
Montreal's Annual Cat Adoption Day Is Happening Now

The excitement of moving day is bittersweet. Every year the SPCA receives an influx of abandoned pets, almost three times the normal amount, when people move out of their apartments on July 1st. Montrealers will leave their animals in empty homes, hoping someone will take care of them.

This negligence has resulted with the shelter at full capacity. Unfortunately, pets are still being found and the SPCA has to refuse them. So, as a means to get these healthy cats into some caring hands, the SPCA is hosting their annual adoption day, TODAY! Prices have been lowered $50 per cat and the first vaccinations come free!

Here are some kitties who are looking for love!
