April 6, 2020 — You read that right!

We know it will change soon…but at the SPCA Serving Erie County we’re taking this moment to celebrate the “emptiness” of our cat adoption rooms!

Right now, all the cats available for adoption at the SPCA Serving Erie County’s Harlem Rd., West Seneca shelter have been adopted by loving members of our community willing to give them wonderful, new homes, even during our current health crisis.

We’re trying not to delude ourselves.

We know there are still a few beautiful, available cats in foster homes waiting to be adopted (see them at http://YourSPCA.org/adoptable-animals).

We know there are still cats at the shelter receiving some kind of treatment, so they’re not able to be adopted at this time.

We know there are many, many SPCA cats previously surrendered to the SPCA who are temporarily residing in foster homes with kittens on the way…which means it won’t be long before these rooms are completely filled again.

But today, we celebrate!

We are working at the SPCA to determine how and when to slowly and, more importantly, SAFELY, bring previously-admitted cats from foster homes back to the shelter after their kittens are  born and old enough to be separated from the moms. Much is still undetermined due to health concerns during this COVID-19 period. We will share details when more information is available.

Thank you to the people of our community for continuing to support the SPCA Serving Erie County and our animals during this crucial time. We are honored to serve you.
