Happy adoption stories
Many of our adopters, volunteers, donors and friends send us stories and photos of the animals who give them so much joy. We dedicate this space to all of you whose lives have been changed by animals.
My 16 year old cat Angel adopted from Waikanae SPCA about 10 years died in November, and in February I decided to adopt another cat. The SPCA had a choice of two mature cats as I didn't want a kitten, fun though they are. I adopted Tequila who is a 3 year female tabby. I kept her in for 12 days gradually showing her another room in the house. After 12 days I let her out at 9.30am and she didn't return until 4.30! I thought I had lost her. She is delightful and follows me around in the garden and sometimes jumps out as I walk past a bush. She often rolls on the ground wanting her chin to be stroked. I am so pleased she has settled in and keeps me company.
