STAWELL - Adoptable Stawell was pleased with the turnout at the grand opening of the catnip cage.
Community members used the launch to meet some of the cats, kittens and dogs that are currently available for adoption.
The homeless cats of Stawell were thrown a lifeline after two Stawell businesses, Catnip and PETstock joined forces.
Catnip has installed one of their cat runs at PETstock so that people who are looking for a new family member, of the four legged variety, are able to go to PETstock to view cats and kittens that are available for adoption.
The fee for adopting a cat or kitten will include their first vaccination, microchip, castration or spey, worming and a flea treatment.
Co-founder of Adoptable and Miss Humanity Australia 2014 entrant Ashleigh Dark said the event was well attended by members of the community.
"We had a great flow of people coming to visit the kittens and got some donations to go towards helping the animals that come in," she said.
"The little dog we had down there and one of the kittens were adopted, which is fantastic.
"It really helps when people can come down and physically meet the animals we have and ask any questions.
"It would help that people had the chance to actually meet us and see who is behind it all and find out anything they want to know about how to become a foster carer."
