A number of animals from the Echuca Lost Dogs Home are in need of a loving new home this Christmas.By Kathleen Tonini
There are always cats and dogs, puppies and kittens looking for a home at the Echuca Lost Dogs Home.
Shelter manager Kate Kemp said although the shelter did not advocate animals for Christmas presents, if families were considering adopting a new family member, the holidays were a good time to do so.
She said this was because most people had more time to bond with their new pets while away from work for a few weeks.
Ms Kemp said while the shelter went through cycles of busy and slower periods, now was the start of ‘‘kitten season’’ when cats bred, causing an influx of kittens to the shelter.
All animals needing a home from the shelter have been desexed, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
