New Zealand’s SPCA is overrun with kittens.
They have been receiving more than 800 animals a day across its centres.
The SPCA had 3500 animals in its care last summer. This year that number has increased to 4000.
The reason is that towards the end of 2020, there was a spike in the number of kittens born in New Zealand.
This came because cats were unable to be desexed during last year’s level 4 COVID-19 lockdown.
The SPCA is therefore calling on animal-lovers’ in New Zealand to help with animal foster care.
