RSPCA Tasmania will host a ‘St Catrick’s Day’ special this weekend with reduced adoption prices on cats and kittens on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

To be sure the organisation is celebrating Ireland’s patron saint, each adopted cat or kitten will go home with a free pot of gold gift pack that includes Hills Science Diet food, a litter tray and scoop, and a cat carrier.

RSPCA chief executive Peter West said he would love to clear the state’s centres of all of the more than 120 available cats and kittens.

“We adore all our Animal Care Centre residents, but there’s absolutely no doubt that home environments are the best places for these cats and kittens,” he said.

“If we can clear the centres we will make way for the cats and kittens that are out in foster care and that will continue to arrive due to a mild autumn.”

All animals are vet-checked, microchipped, vaccinated and desexed before leaving for their new forever homes.

The Launceston centre will open 10am to 4pm this Friday to Sunday.
