Pet of the Week: A friendly ‘ghostly Casper’ ready for a new loving home

This week’s Pet of the Week is a newcomer to the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter.

This two-year-old sleek white boy, Casper, is a neutered male who is a large cat. He is very friendly and eager to find a loving home.

The Shelter is a home-away from a loving home for many of its residents, due to unforeseen circumstances.

The ‘Catio’ Project

The catio project (cat patio) gives ‘tenants’ an opportunity to enjoy the out of doors safely.

While there is now one ‘catio’, the shelter is hoping to add more as cats are not in cages at the shelter.  They roam free in the cat rooms and, like all pets, would enjoy the chance for a fresh air experience.

The Shelter’s charitable fundraising store in Meaford is also moving to using more technology to reach out to surrounding communities.

The Shelter says  “… choose to offer a safe place for pets that have no choices left.” Sometimes, their owners have had no choice either. They, too, may have aged and have to move into a facility where their loved companions are not allowed or, in the final step of life, may have died leaving their pets behind.  Whatever the reason, these faithful friends have no choice but to wait … wait for someone new to take them in and love them.”
